Wedding Fashion - Ali B Maids

Finding the right bridesmaid’s dresses is just as time consuming as finding the brides dress. There are different body types and personal styles you have to consider in your dress choice. This can be a headache but I have found a designer that makes this process a little less stressful than it needs to be. Ali B Maids is an online bridesmaid salon with a fabulous collection of bridesmaid’s dresses and has recently added their newest line which includes 9 new bridesmaid dress designs, 2 flower girl designs and 7 destination bridal gowns. Your groom and groomsmen will not be left out either. They are also providing matching pocket squares. And for great bridesmaids gifts, matching monogrammed make up bags.

There many color choices to choose from and you and mix and match with the styles of your choice. You can also have a custom color design for a $25 fee per dress. They are able to match any color swatch sample you have. The collection is beautiful and there is a dress for every woman. The sizes range from 0 to 24 so every bridesmaid will be able to find a dress in their size.

Ordering is made simple and easy. Your bridesmaids can go to a local trusted tailor and have their measurements taken. (bust, waist & hips). There is also a helpful size chart to ensure you are ordering the appropriate size. Then you fill out the order form and send it in via fax or email with a 50% deposit then before completion your bridesmaids can send the balance due. In these economics times, installments are truly helpful.

Another great feature is the See-It-For-Yourself Program. This is an opportunity you to see, feel and experience the amazing American made quality of the dresses in the comfort of your own home. The gown of your choice will be shipped UPS Ground. The color and size will be chosen by Ali B Maids and based on availability. It’s SO SIMPLE!! You download the Sample Dress Loan Form from the website, fill it out and submit it via secure fax! There is a fee of $25 to cover shipping handling and insurance fees. You may be able to receive multiple dresses at once; however, the service charge remains $25 per dress. As a special Thank You for an order, Ali B Maids will credit ONE $25 charge per Bridal Party order.

I had the pleasure of speaking with the Gena DeVirgilio, the Vice President of Ali B Maids. She was so delightful and helpful. Here are some key questions I thought would be helpful to you.

What inspires the designs for your collection?
We are inspired not only by current trends, but what looks great on real people. Our designs are made to fit many body types. You will see that you aren’t limited to one design….in fact many of our designs are highly flattering to all body types.

What new for 2009 weddings?
COLOR!! Lots of color! We have put a lot thought into our current color offerings. Our Sorbet/Island inspired color palette has been well received. Our Pumpkin Spice and Passion Pink colors have been our most popular.

When choosing a bridesmaid dress, what advice can you give brides?
Choosing a bridesmaid dress is personal, it’s a part of the bride’s vision and should be respected as such. However, we aren’t all supermodels, so it’s important to consider the personality and body types of your bridal party. Ali B Maids has created designs that complement one another and can be mixed and matched to offer both vision and comfort for everyone.
Here are a few pictures of the wonderful collection.
