Wedding Wednesday: Picking Bridesmaid Dresses

Tiffany Geiger

Picking bridesmaid dresses was one of the harder parts for me while wedding planning. I wanted something that didn't scream bridesmaid dress, I didn't want them all to match but I wanted them to coordinate, I wanted that beach vibe and I wanted my girls to feel just as beautiful as I did on wedding day. That is how I ended up with Show Me Your Mumu dresses.

Before deciding on Show Me Your Mumu, I considered picking out 6 different random maxi dresses for my girls and as much as I LOVE that look (check out my photographer's wedding that I'm absolutely obsessed with), it got too hard too fast and I was finding myself getting overwhelmed quickly. 

Show Me your Mumu makes bridesmaid dresses so easy and allowed for me to do different dresses for everyone in the same/coordinating colors. They offer like 10 dresses per color which was so great because no one had to wear the same dress but they could wear the same color. They also are reasonably priced, I didn't want my girls shelling out $$ for a dress I picked out for them and they may/may not wear again. They were the perfect solution for my day and are so easy to dress up or down based on your wedding vibe. I asked my girls to dress them down with sandals (the ceremony & reception were on the beach after all) and they fit the vibe of my day perfectly.

When ordering for my girls, I suggested they all order from Nordstrom because the Show Me Your Mumu return policy isn't great - 14 days and you have to pay return shipping. So if you go Show Me Your Mumu route, I definitely recommend doing the same! Also, their dresses sell out quickly so decide fast and encourage your girls to order ASAP! The last thing you want is to decide on dresses and then half your girls get them and the other half not be able to. Ok I think those are all my tips for bridesmaid dress shopping.. 

What are you looking for in your bridesmaid dresses? Where have you looked?

Wedding Wednesday: Finding THE dress

It feels like so long ago that I looked at wedding dresses! It was such a fun day. Cory's mom and my mom came up to NYC to look with my sister and I. The day started with brunch at one of my favorite places, Nomo Soho then off to our appointment at Lovely Bride! I should start by telling you I'd already ordered a dress online that I was IN LOVE with but felt like since it was the first dress I tried on I should do my due diligence. So to Lovely Bride we went!

No one prepares you for a dress appointment but in an hour you usually can try on about 5 dresses so be selective! You can always make a second appointment if needed. I tried on so many different ones and the girl who helped me was incredible! But only try on what you want to try on. Don't let your mom/sister/aunt/whoever pressure you into what they want to see on you. Start with what you want and go from there. We had discussed some ground rules at brunch regarding my appointment and I'd suggest doing the same. The rules were - I picked the dresses, I got first opinion then they could share their's. 

Lovely Bride was such an incredible experience and they had such a wide range of dresses to choose from. And by the end of the appointment I knew the dress I'd ordered online was the one!

Ah! I'm so obsessed with my dress, it was so fun to wear and the perfect spinning dress! I got so many compliments on what a unique dress it was too :) 

Bridesmaids

Tiffany Geiger

When picking bridesmaids, I started wanting one - just my sister. Then I realized I also wanted to include my husband's sister and my sister-in-law. Then I had 3. Then I wanted my 3 best friends and suddenly I had gone from strictly wanting 1 to having 6. And I couldn't be happier!

Wedding day was the best day ever. It's such a unique experience to be surrounded by all your favorite people celebrating you and your husband. It was so much fun having all my girls with me all day. And I'm so glad they could all be a part of our day.

BEACHelorette in Key West

Gonna try to get #weddingwednesdays going here! Starting with my BEACHelorette party in Key West. Because it was the best time, ever. I hadn't been down to Key West as an adult and forgot just how amazing it is. It's a super authentic island where everything revolves around the sunshine + there's no open container policy. So yes, I'd like a piña colada to go. 

We stayed at Sunset Key Cottages which are the most beautiful houses on a private island off of Key West, they have a ferry that runs back and forth all day for guests. It's only a 5 minute boat ride to Key West and then you're right in the middle of it all near Duval Street. I wish I'd saved the Snapchats from the house because they're so pretty. If you're going to Key West with a group, def check it out. Full run down below.

Friday: Arrive in Key West, unpack, get locked in the room while they decorated the house - and OMG what a GREAT job my sister aka (mer)maid of honor did. I mean look at those photos! It was pouring rain when we arrived so we head to the bar at the hotel for a drink hoping the rain would let up. It did! And off to Irish Kevin's we went! Seriously my favorite bar, the live music so good. 

Saturday we biked Key West stopping at all the beaches and stopping mudslides along the way because hello, no open container policy! Then lunch outside at Fogarty's (because their frozen drinks are to die for) and back to Sunset Key for an afternoon at the pool before dinner. For dinner we went to Hot Tin Roof and I had the freshest ahi tuna I've ever had. We were exhausted from our day so we went back to the hotel to hang out and have drinks at the pool before calling it a night. 

Sunday we packed up, spent a few last hours at the pool then begrudgingly headed back to reality. 

If you're considering Key West for your bachelorette, stop considering it and book it! We all had the best time and regularly ask when we can go again. It just may become an annual trip.
