Why We Go To Atlanta's Market
In a word: you. We go for you! This is indeed one of the places that Bridal Traditions explores and makes purchases for the upcoming season, but it's also where we see what is trending, what is still in "favored status" and what is a complete surprise.
The Atlanta Market showcases new looks, new styles and ensures that we have the selection that girls in Wilkes and surrounding areas deserve. We live to serve you ladies. We also feel it's our duty to curate. We know our market. We know our clientele and we choose accordingly. Below is just a sampling of what we saw this year. There will be more to come. Count on it!
Jewel Tones for Prom
Va-va-voom is one caption that comes to mind when we look at the emerald, cherry and black dresses we encountered. These are statement dresses perfect for prom and formal parties that follow. Any of these would speak volumes when you enter prom and be an investment for later should you find yourself in a party chapter of your life.
Call it exotic. Call it whimsical. We found ourselves fairly enchanted with these gowns that showcase feathers, flowers, layers of tulle, visible boning and cut-outs, sparkle and glitter. Some of the same styling that we've seen in bridal over the last couple of years is, once more, showing up in prom attire. Gowns in pale blue, dove gray, sage and laurel greens, exhibit a sort of fairytale quality, and when you highlight them with butterflies, and clever details in the folding of fabric: they are stunners!
Showing some leg
When Angelina Jolie stuck her leg out at the Oscars, low those many years ago, many of us thought, "WOW!" Others reportedly thought she was hinting a bit too much. Is it even hinting if you show that much?
Opinions will differ, but prom is for girls of a certain age (15 - 18 years old). Our goal is to make you feel fabulous, but not compromised. So let us just say that there are slits in gowns that are elegantly placed, and there are slits that border on risque. We are not old ladies wagging out fingers, so we chose those gowns that you'd be proud to wear, but aren't so suggestive that you'll have regrets.
As for other styles and fabrics, we chose well there too! Knits, sequins, ball gowns, dresses featuring cowl necks, etc. If you have a style in mind - or a size you need, we bought up to 28 - we're here for you. BT will let you know when it's time to come view, but in the meantime - start planning!
