Wedding and bridesmaid dress shopping always come with a handful of questions–where should I go? Who should I bring? What if I fall in love with a dress that’s outside of my budget? If you’re recently engaged and beginning the hunt for your dress (or dresses for your favorite gals), chances are, a few of these concerns have crossed your mind. The first question, where to shop, can be particularly challenging if you’re like many of our readers who live in small towns, where the selection may be seriously limited, or your local bridal salon may not carry the designers you love. A road trip to your nearest big city is certainly one option (which would be so much fun!), but perhaps not always doable within your timeline and budget. If this is a predicament you’re finding yourself in, I’m excited to introduce you to a fabulous solution: Fame and Partners’ affordable bridal dresses and their Bridesmaid Dress Planner!
The Fame and Partners team is passionate about two things: fashion and technology. They’ve combined the two to make it easy for brides from all over the country to shop for both wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses that are stylish, unique, and made to order. They’ve even designed the styles (wedding dresses included!) to be easy to re-wear after the big day.

My favorite feature of the Fame and Partners site is their Bridesmaid Dress Planner. After registering your wedding on their site, you can invite your bridesmaids, create a moodboard for inspiration, comment and vote on favorite styles, and then place your order, all in one place. As an added bonus, if you use the Bridesmaid Dress Planner, Fame and Partners will gift the bride with a dress for her honeymoon!

If you need a little extra help, Fame and Partners stylists are always on hand–for $49, they’ll use their expertise to style your bridal party for you, as well as manage the communication with your bridesmaids (SO handy if you have a big bridal party in mismatched styles!). If you purchase your wedding dress at Fame and Partners, that $49 actually then goes toward the cost of your dress. Win-win!
