Bridesmaid Dress - thoughts on the Convertible Henkaa Dress?

Recommended Posts

Beautiful dress, I just hate that it only comes in one size fits all!

The girls and I are going to the store that has them in stock next month to check them out and try on.  I'll let you know feedback once we have gone there.  Thanks for this post.  It's a great idea!

I've been debating between the Henkaa or Victoria secret dresses for my bridesmaids. Victoria secret is cheaper so if they are good I would rather get them. But for anyone who ordered them did you get the regular length or short. In the pictures the short looks really short but the regular length looks like it goes to the calf whereas I would like it go be more knee length.

Another option is American Apparel.  The length is pretty good but they aren't the "shiny" jersey material so they may be a little too casual for some.  This is the other one we are debating on and only $40!!!!!

I ordered a version from an an Etsy seller, Erin Nicole Boutique. She makes the dresses herself, and fits them to size. I'm getting the dresses around June 18 and can show you what they look like around then. I've seen wedding photos where brides use these dresses, and they photograph beautifully. Maybe they don't look so great in person for some versions, but they photograph well I think which is important too. My dressmaker would do it in matte jersey or shiny, which was really just the reverse side. I chose shiny because they look better on camera.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
