New First Communion Dresses for 2016 Includes Great Styles for the Plus Size Girl

One of the most satisfying things we stand behind at Pegeen.com is that we guarantee the fit. We work very hard to make sure that a girl who may be looking for a Plus Size First Communion dress, and who is difficult to fit, looks just a beautiful than the next girl waiting to receive her First Communion.  We think it’s so sad that some of these girls go shopping and come across some really unscrupulous sales attendants.  One of the worst stories I have heard was that a young girl went into a large, box mart sized bridal store, after visiting at least 5 others without success, and the sales clerk said to the girl’s mother, of course in front of her, “OH we don’t fit girls like her.  Maybe we should get a women’s dress off the rack and see if we can cut it down”. URGH.  That woman should have been fired on the spot but I hear those are common comments in many stores.

There are a few styles that work REALLY well.  One I personally like is the style below because fabric we use has pin-tucks which helps to slenderize the look. I usually dn’t recommend lots of skirt fluff – like many layers of tulle or organza.  One layer of tulle looks quite awful but we think this body type is fine with single layers of organza.  And, don’t be fulled by these crappy dresses coming from China for goodness sake.  If I could show you the heart break from these moms who call us in tears, I would if that would help convince you.White first communion dresses

Call us.  We will treat your plus sized girl with the dignity you all deserve.
For PLUS SIZES we will send a Bodice in the mail which is made out of a muslin material. You will try on this pattern/muslin and get back to us with any further fit issues.  Be sure to have a digital camera ready when it arrives.  After the fit is finalized, we use our copy of the same muslin here and proceed to make your dress. “My staff and I are really good at spotting the problems. Once the digital pictures are sent back to us experience and a little programming magic, produces the changes that need to be made to the pattern. I really scare my kids sometimes when talking on the phone to customers. After they give me the measurements and height, I usually guess their weight within a pound or two. It amazes my kids but reassures the customer that we know what we are doing! I was especially happy when a recent customer said to me ‘ITS LIKE MAGIC IN A BOX’ and that pretty much says it right there.”

 

Photoshoot by Christine Cornwell – Aqua & Pink Flower Girl Dresses

We just love Christine Cornwell’s photography, (ChrisCornwellBlog.com).  We met her last year at my sister’s son and daughter in law’s wedding, in fact the wedding and photgraphy was so wonderful that we named that our 2015 Wedding of the Year.  Christine is the most adorable yet hard working photographer that I had ever had the pleasure to work with in quite some time.  Recently, the wedding was featured in Jan/Feb 2016 Bridal Guide and we were honored to be featured as well.  So, when Chris said she just had to do a shoot we obliged because we love her work!  Chris hails from Kentucky but shoots around the world.

Are you looking for flower girl dresses for a conservative or Jewish Wedding?

It is no wonder that moms call us and are completely frustrated.  Imagine that you need a high neck and 3/4 sleeve dress and sometimes for 18 or 19 flower girls!  Now imagine that your wedding is just 5 weeks away.  It’s not possible to buy 22 matching dresses off the rack in a short period of time.  It just doesn’t happen.  Pegeen.com has a wonderful program and we are able to deliver as many flower girl dresses necessary for your quick turn around wedding.  What’s better, you can order longer sleeves and higher necks at a small amount as well as floor length dresses, in silk with a petticoat and in a short period of time.

Lucky to live so close to Disney World

My husband and I are really lucky. We are pretty crazy about the positive effects of Disney World on our psyche. We are lucky to be just a mile from the park via the back entrance and no, there is not a secret entrance, just an employee entrance.  Frequently I find that we are at odds with the hard work so my son will drop us off at the entrance gate at Disney on his way to work there. After 20 minutes, we are smiling again and content to people watch (really kid watch) and find ourselves talking about business,  Soon, whatever seemed difficult to solve is easier if you just whistle while you work. HAHAH. If you live here, we tend to forget the culture of living in the city of “The Happiest Place in the World”. So, moving so close to the park for us was a salvation. As business owners, we may work all the time, but its hard to not feel like you are on vacation everyday when you get to hear the Disney Train whistle every 15 minutes or so and see the fireworks every night in your driveway.

Gray and Hot Pink Wedding in the Sonoma Valley

I have been so lax about our featured flower girl dresses and weddings of the month – and keep forgetting to post them so I will do so here over the next few posts.  I had a particular fondness for this wedding visiting the area several times with my travels to California – for as crazy as the politics and the over spending, it sure is a gorgeous state.  The Sonoma Valley is no exception.
