I promise to love the old as much as the new…
The stunning gowns in the photo above by Reva Mivasaga combine stylish vintage elements with modern shapes and silhouettes. Every bridal gown needs a little romance and a twist of something old in addition to the modern trends we love. I adore Reva’s designs because he really gets the balance of old and new just right, overdoses of vintage elements in a gown can make the entire outfit look like a costume.
There is no rule that all the bridesmaids must wear the exact same dress. I wrote chapter 2 of the bridesmaid series to show that the maids can still look uniform and coordinated without wearing the exact same dress. They can even get away with wearing different colors, it all comes down to thoughtful execution of a stylish plan rather than the ‘one dress fits all policy' that most brides impose on their maids.
Wraps and boleros were a big hit during the bridal fashion week, many of the 2010 collections featured chic cover-ups that can be worn all year round.They are multi-functional; giving the bride extra coverage, more warmth in cold months and an extra layer of sophistication.
Most importantly each bride should resolve to have a wedding that truly reflects her personality and style. I hope you all enjoyed 2009 as much as I did and hopefully 2010 will be an even better year for us all.
