San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 5, 2010
Shiny Orb introduces a new social shopping feature called Shiny Orb Dressing Rooms for brides and their bridesmaids to centralize coordination of bridesmaid dresses online. They are launching this on their website in private beta to an exclusive number of brides.
"With bridal parties becoming busier and scattered across the globe, shopping for bridesmaid dresses and wedding apparel has been getting much harder," says Shiny Orb co-founder Elizabeth Yin. "Shiny Orb Dressing Rooms make it simple for bridal parties to shop for dresses together without being in the same place at the same time."
A bride or bridesmaid browses the large collection of bridesmaid dresses on Shiny Orb and adds them to her bridal party's dressing room. Then, everyone in the bridal party can comment on any of the suggested dresses in the room. When a dressing room has been updated, all members of the group are notified by email. Comments can only be seen by dressing room members, but all added dresses are displayed as an inspiration board for other brides.
One Shiny Orb Dressing Room user Phyllis Tam has found her bridal party's dressing room to be incredibly useful in coordinating dresses. Tam, a bridesmaid living in London but participating in a wedding in the US this summer, says, "It's difficult to schedule a phone date with just one person, so forget about coordinating a conference call. Shiny Orb's Dressing Room feature makes it so much easier to suggest and discuss dresses -- I really feel like I'm an important part of the bridal party even though everyone else is in the US, and it's got me even more excited about the wedding!" Tam usually checks her dressing room in the morning before work to see what dress suggestions and comments were made while she was asleep and to add her own comments while her US counterparts are sleeping.
Currently the Shiny Orb Dressing Rooms feature is available only to an exclusive number of brides. So, how can a bride or her maid of honor get a coveted access code? Co-founder Jennifer Hsieh says, "The best way to get an access code is to follow us on Twitter (@shinyorb) or fan us on Facebook. We're working around the clock to release more and more access codes."
