A Touch of Sparkle: Sequined Bridesmaid Dresses

If you want to add some sparkle to your wedding, why not have your bridesmaids shine in sequined bridesmaid dresses?  Bridesmaids dresses have evolved over the years and are getting better and better. The newest trend in bridesmaid dresses is sequins and I am in L-O-V-E with these sequin gowns!

Choosing a floor length all sequin dress will give you a dramatic look.  These dresses make a bold statement in all sequins but stay classic with the silhouette.

Or choose a gown with only touches of sequins for a less dramatic look.  Be careful when choosing sequin gowns that you choose the right silhouette especially when choosing a short bridesmaid dress.  If it is too short or showy it won’t look classy.

I  love the idea of wearing a belt over a sequin dress to match the wedding colors!

What do you think about these sequin wedding gowns?  Should this trend stay or go?

Leave us your thoughts!

Happy Planning!

Convertible Wedding Dresses

Choosing the perfect wedding dress is not always an easy task and brides who can’t decide which dress to choose are opting to buy two dresses. The first dress for the ceremony and the second dress for the reception.  The first is typically more classic in silhouette and more conservative in style and the second “party” dress is for dancing the night away.

Buying two dresses can get expensive so why not buy one dress and get two looks? You may have seen the convertible bridesmaid dresses but what about a convertible wedding dress?

Many convertible wedding dresses have a removable skirts.  That way you can have a more traditional length and silhouette for the ceremony and instead of bustling the dress you remove the bottom part of the dress to make it short!

Other convertible dresses have overskirts that can be removed at the waist to reveal a shorter dress!

Or the over skirt is attached at the waist and when removed reveals a tighter more slim version of the original dress.

As much as I like this idea I would warn you to be careful that the dress doesn’t look like it is convertible. No one should realize that you can remove the skirt or change the look of the dress until you show up to the reception and show everyone your new look!

What do you think about convertible wedding dresses? Would you wear one?

Happy Dress Hunting!

2013 Wedding Trend: Peplum Dresses

Showing up on wedding runways everywhere are peplum dresses!  If you haven’t seen this trend it is basically an overskirt or ruffle attached to the waist of a dress. This girly ultra feminine look is the newest trend in wedding fashion for 2013.

For wedding dresses this “overskirt” can be small like ruffles or large and more dramatic in size.  Designers are using tulle, silk organza, lace or even feathers to create this smaller skirt.

My favorite addition to a peplum wedding gown is a sparkly or colored bridal belt to help define the waistline.

The trend doesn’t stop with wedding dresses!  Peplum bridesmaids dresses are becoming increasingly popular turning a simple silhouette in to something fashion forward.

I especially like peplum dresses for brides as a second “getaway” dress.  These short peplum dresses make an all white dress look classy and sophisticated.

If you are a bold bride, try a peplum dress with a splash of color on the top or bottom.

I realize this trend probably isn’t for every bride.  If you enjoy pushing the edge in bridal fashion and want a dress that is fashion forward peplum dresses might be the perfect choice for you!

What do you think of this new bridal fashion trend for 2013?
