Being asked to be a part of your friend's bridal party can be bittersweet. You're excited to stand by her side on one of the biggest days of her life, but the idea of spending hundreds of dollars on a dress you'll only wear once is enough to cut that feeling short. No worries, luxe brand Fame & Partners has a chic solution. The innovative company offers bridal and bridesmaids dresses you can customize and rock again. With the versatility of these unique gowns, all styles can be altered to suit just about every size, yes EVERY size. Just ask the curvalicious fashion blogger Kelly Augustine who styled herself and her a few girls from her bridal party in Fame & Partners looks for her Harlem wedding.
"Earlier this year, I had a handful of wedding dresses and then I lost weight (very unintentionally, stress I assume), and something just didn’t feel right about the dresses. So I searched and searched and finally came across Fame & Partners, a special occasion dress brand that offers that classic pop of excitement I was looking for. I ended up with this dress from Fame & Partners that I absolutely love," Kelly wrote in her blog post titled 'How Fame & Partners Saved My Wedding Dress (And Party).'
"The fit was perfect in the bust (I’m a 34K bra, so I was so worried I wouldn’t find a dress that worked) and even more so in the waist. I will say I had to take in the lining in the skirt so that the thigh-high split was accentuated, though. But what’s a wedding dress without alterations? As a low maintenance bride, I really just wanted my girls to look good and be comfortable all day so I recommended them for Fame & Partners as well. My bridesmaids ran the full spectrum of sizing, so I was very confident we’d all find options," she wrote.
Not the fashion maven? No problem, Fame & Partners' savvy staff of stylists will coordinate your entire bridal party for only $49. If we haven't convinced you enough, just take a look at a few of the styles offered by Fame & Partners and get ready to slay!
