Looking for “the dress” is a stressful, difficult task. Price, style, and designer are all factors in a bride’s decision. Nearly Newlywed allows brides to buy, try, and sell “nearly new” unique dresses. Designer dresses are selected and subsequently curated for the site. Designers such as Phillip Lim and Vera Wang are featured with a variety of styles available. The Nearly Newlywed Guarantee allows brides on a budget to “Buy it, wear it, and sell it back.” Newlywed founder Jackie created a modern approach to weddings with this site and is helping women from all over shop stress-free for their special day.
The founding of Little Borrowed Dress comes from a story reminiscent of the film 27 Dresses. Women everywhere suffer from lack of closet space and often bridesmaid dresses are to blame! If groomsmen rent their suits, bridesmaids should be able to rent their dresses. The chic site provides five simple steps to finding beautiful bridesmaid dresses. First, browse the online collection and get the opinion of your friends by emailing, tweeting, or pinning the options (free fabric swatches are available upon request)! After picking out dresses, shoppers can visit the NYC showroom to try them on. Save the wedding date and reserve the dresses. After the event, simply place the dress in the prepaid envelope provided and send it off. With the help of Little Borrowed Dress, bridesmaid dresses never have to face the fate of spending eternity at the back of your closet!
Whether you have an iPhone or a Android, chances are you never leave home without your phone. Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr… you’re always connected. Appy Couple is a mobile app allowing couples to keep their guests constantly in the wedding loop! The app allows you to share photos, the story of how you met, the proposal tale, events associated with the wedding, hotel information, and bridal party information with everyone invited. A bride or groom can choose their design and create an account for their upcoming wedding. The program is also accessible to those guests without smart phones through the free coordinating website connected to the personalized app. This genius idea is helping to make weddings run smoothly around the world.
