Picking bridesmaid dresses can be overwhelming as we all know how hard it is to find one dress and color that not only looks good on everyone but that everyone likes! Here are a few tips that will hopefully make your bridesmaid dress shopping less stressful and your bridesmaids happy!

1.  We often find that choosing a color that looks good on all skin tones will make the decision of which dress to pick a lot easier. We often find that our brides gravitate to lighter colors such as a pale pink, light lavender or baby blue in either the same silhouette or a similar one. This allows the bridesmaids to pick the silhouette that they feel the most comfortable with, but also ensuring that the bride still has some control of the final look!

2. For the bride who isn’t too concerned with having all of her bridesmaids in the same dress, a great way to keep everything cohesive but not look too matchy-matchy is to allow her bridesmaids to pick a dress that they like in either the same color or an array of colors that still compliment each other.

3.  Something that we don’t see very often but when done correctly is an unexpected show stopper is to have your bridesmaids wear white! It is the perfect neutral and when the the silhouette of the dress is the same and the fabric is either a soft organza, flowing tulle or a sleek silk both you and your bridesmaids will most certainly be the belles of the ball!

Dog days of summer

June 24, 2016. Category: Take your dog to work

In honor of Take Your Dog To Work Day, a national celebration that promotes pet adoptions, we thought it would be fun to have one of our very own A. Dominick Events furry colleagues come and spend the day with us in the office!


Meet Gatsby, a French bulldog pup owned by our very own Ashley Allman. He’s sassy, silly and loves a good challenge. So when we asked if he’d come on board for a dogternship, he eagerly accepted!


Leaving for work! Big sister, Penelope, is staying behind to catch up on naps.


 Gatsby started his morning reading his email and checking on his favorite blogs! Who’s that pretty lady dog? 😉


Always nice to have an extra set of paws around, especially when you’re mailing out Save The Dates! This paper stock smells particularly delicious… mmmmm, gold foil.


It wouldn’t be a typical day in the office if we weren’t receiving or sending back linen. They’re all here – we can have a party now!


It’s not easy coming to work all day. I missed at least 4 of my daily naps. This is one tired pup!

Thanks for spending the day with us Gatsby!

To see more of Gatsby’s adventures make sure to follow him on Instagram at @gatsbypuppy.
