Bun in the oven?

I do have alot of ladies that contact me regarding maternity dresses available at Belle Dress Hire. “Unfortunately,” I always say, “I don’t specifically stock maternity evening dresses but certainly some of the styles I do have work extremely well on expectant mums-to-be.”

Enter my model, Wendy who is currently expecting her fourth child!!  At just over 4 and a half months, she looks absolutely fantastic in this strapless, navy corseted dress with diamante detail.

Wendy 4 months

Wendy wanted to “embrace” her bump, not conceal it, at a recent black tie event and so this dress worked perfectly.  The boned corset, in a slimming, dark navy jersey fabric, moulded to Wendy’s bust and then flared out towards the tummy and hip area.  Comfort was paramount for Wendy, but at the same time she didn’t want to sacrifice looking good!  And why should she??!!  Just because you’re pregnant ladies, doesn’t mean you have to wear a dress that resembles a sack!  The length of this dress was also ideal as a train could potentially be dangerous, especially in high heels!

Check out some of these other styles available at Belle Dress Hire which would work very well with a “baby tum” due to the flexibility of fabric and shape …

Fancy looking like Mila Kunis???

Photos were recently taken of Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher at his brother’s wedding which took place at the weekend.

Mila chose not to upstage the bride in a very pretty, soft pink, full-skirted dress.  She also decided against jewelry and kept her hairstyle very simple as well.  Considering she is a famous, Hollywood actress, who is never off the red carpet I think this was very classy of her.

Unlike a certain someone …..Does anyone remember Victoria Beckham’s oufit to Davinia Taylor’s wedding back in 2003?  To me, when I saw the pictures, I believed it to be a classless and blatant attempt to outdo the bride ….

Anyway, back to Mila’s flowy, strapless, bridal attire …. An extremely similar look is available for hire at Belle Dress Hire in a size 6/8.  Attending a wedding in Spring/Summer 2014?  This choice of dress would be perfect!!

Fitzwilliam Hotel Ladies Light Up Four Seasons Hotel in Dublin …

Siobhan and Carolyn from the Fitzwilliam Hotel in Belfast, have hired on numerous occasions from Belle Dress Hire as they attend many black tie events throughout the year and each time, the ladies are able to find a unique and different dress to hire for their corporate event.

Siobhan and Carolyn got in touch to say they needed really special dresses for the final social black tie event of the year which was taking place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Dublin at the weekend.  So they wanted to end off the year with an extremely stylish BANG!

I quickly got my thinking cap on in advance of the appointment.  I know Siobhan LOVES to wear colour as the girls’ daily uniform at the Fitzwilliam Hotel, mainly comprises a black or navy suit jacket and skirt.  With Siobhan’s gorgeous auburn hair, we were drawn to a brand new dress available at Belle Dress Hire…….

This stunning emerald green, sequin and silk chiffon dress was thee perfect dress for Siobhan.  It screams party, elegance and style!  It is a very comfortable dress to wear as the fuller skirt means you can enjoy your dinner without fear of the dreaded bloat showing through!  All the bling detail on this style also means that you don’t need to wear any jewelry at all which keeps the costs down.





Carolyn also chose a gorgeous dress to end the black tie functions for 2013.  This beautiful, black, silk jersey, necklace detail dress is so slimming!  It has a very neat fit at the bust and then flows outward from the ribcage through the tummy area and hips down to the floor.  Again jewelry can be kept to a minimum with this style apart from a nice pair of ear rings to complete the look.


The girls’ wanted to look absolutely fabulous at the Four Seasons Hotel in Dublin and I’m sure you can agree by these photos that they look absolutely stunning!
