How To's

For many brides, one of the most exciting parts of planning a wedding is finding the perfect dress. But for others, this particular step may be less exciting and more stressful. Fortunately, finding the ideal dress is only as involved and time-consuming as you want it to be, and there are plenty of options far away from the bright lights of the bridal store. One option: Modcloth, the destination site for adorable, retro-chic dresses. Here are a few things to keep in mind when ordering a wedding dress off the site.


Pay close attention to sizes.

Anyone who has ordered off Modcloth knows sometimes sizes vary, so a medium might not always fit the same. Read reviews, view any available pictures and don’t hesitate to reach out to the site for help. They have stylists available to chat online who can help make sure you are ordering the right size.


If you see one you like, don’t wait!

Modcloth sells out of favorites fast, so act quickly if you’ve fallen in love with a dress. But don’t worry: Returns are easy and free, so if it doesn’t look quite as great in person, you can send it back without stress.


Sort by color and length.

Let’s be real: Modcloth has a HUGE selection, and it can be intimidating. One way around that is to sort first by length; the site offers options like “mid-length” and “maxi.” Then, sort by color to pare down results even more. It will result in a far more manageable list of options.


Be prepared for alterations.

Make sure you order your dress in plenty of time for alterations, just to be safe. Give it at least four months, and get in touch with people who do alterations beforehand to make sure that’s enough time. Include alteration costs in your dress budget so you don’t get a shocking surprise when the bill turns up.

What are Deconstructed Hotels and Where Can You Find Them?

As travelers look for ways to slow down, be present and be a little more mindful during their trips, some hotels and resorts tout a new accommodation concept: the deconstructed hotel. Just like a deconstructed dish separates all of the dish’s individual ingredients so one can experience each separately but still enjoy the overall effect of the whole, a deconstructed hotel breaks down a property into its separate components, requiring a traveler to move between each in a more mindful, present manner.
