Afternoon Tea Party in Asos Petite Tea Length Dress

I wore this dress to my best friend's bridal shower that I threw. It was actually my first time attending a bridal shower and also my first time throwing one. My bridal shower cherry got popped! LOL! I've been invited to a few showers but somehow always managed to miss them due to scheduling conflicts. For those of you who've never been to a shower like me, I thought I'd share with you what goes on at these parties. I had to do a lot of research and sought out a couple of friends who have had experience throwing them. I didn't know there were games, prizes and also party favors given out to the guests. We played three games: one determining how well the bride knew the groom (example), another one with questions on how well we knew the bride (example) and what's in you purse (example). Most of the templates are online and you can download and print them for free, but I had my boyfriend help me design my own templates and I also made up some questions so it's more fun and personalized. Since we had an afternoon tea party at the Palace Hotel, the favors were a teacup and saucer with a little L'Occitane hand cream (love their stuff!) inside of it. If you're thinking about throwing a bridal shower or just want to enjoy great afternoon tea, I highly recommend the Palace Hotel! Although it is really pricey, the venue was absolutely gorgeous, the ambiance was perfect for a bridal shower and the food was really girly, cute and of course delicious.
Let's talk about this dress from Asos! I absolutely love this dress since it fits like a glove. It is currently almost 60% off the original price and the quality is amazing. It has boning inside the bodice, the dress is fully lined and it has pockets at the hips. There's also tulle inside the skirt that you can easily remove if you wanted less poof, but I decided not to remove it because I like the drama of a full skirt. I actually haven't ordered a fitted dress from Asos in a while and was shocked at how small it ran. I went braless in this dress because I only have the heavily padded strapless bras from Victoria's Secret and when I wore that under this dress, it felt so tight. I didn't have time to order the next size up to try, but I'd definitely recommend sizing up if you're in between sizes or just want to feel more comfortable. This would be a great dress if you're looking for an alternative to wearing red for Valentine's Day. I see some of the sizes have sold out due to the deep discount, so act quickly if you're interested! Measurements for this dress in 00P: bust 29", waist 24" and length 32" (measured from center front to hem).

  3. This is a perfect dress to wear on a tea party. I just loved it. My bridal shower tea party was also very enjoyable and stylish. My sister had organized it and she played an important role in my wedding planning. She even helped me in finding best wedding venues NYC for the ceremony.
