Wedding Dress Capelets!

Capes and capelets are my new favorite wedding accessory!  Whether you want to cover up and keep warm or want an alternative to a traditional wedding veil a cape or capelet may be the perfect accessory for your wedding look!

You can find the perfect capelet for any dress.  Capes are made out of lace, satin or fur and can be long or short.

For a more dramatic look choose a long capelet.  Long capes give more coverage during a ceremony and can be taken off easily afterwards for a different look.

Bridesmaid Dress Trends for 2013: Illusion Necklines

Showing up on fashion runways all over are designs featuring illusion necklines.  The bridal industry has been no exception to this fashion trend.  Throughout 2012 and 2013 bridal gowns are being made with illusion necklines and, to my delight, are now showing up in bridesmaid gowns.

If you are still wondering what an illusion neckline is, you are probably not alone.   An illusion neckline is a sheer piece of fabric that lays over a gown giving the appearance of a high neckline but with a hint of skin showing through.

In my opinion this takes a dress from simple to stunning and shows off a little skin without showing too much!

You want your bridesmaids to look beautiful and feel amazing and this style dress just may be the perfect balance for your girls.  Brides want to ditch the traditional strapless dress and an illusion neckline gives a strapless dress a twist.

Lace dresses are another trend for 2013 in bridesmaid dresses. I love the pairing of a lace bridesmaid dress with an illusion neckline!
