Fall Gets Fluted
Swishy princess ballroom gowns are so 2008 and you’re so 2000 and late. The fluted bridal gown is the boom-boom POW for fall. Who wears it best: Despite popular belief, this bridal gown isn’t just for bridezillas with boyish figures. Its fluted bottom creates the illusion of a tiny waist and slender upper body — so if you’re shapely, don’t pass up this look. Bridal Gown by Alvina Valenta.
Romance is in the Air
Romance is in the air this autumn. The Jim Hjelm fall bridal collection features a classic, vintage-inspired look that’s thankfully not overdone in that “grandma’s attic,” way. A sweetheart neck, lace corset, and champagne moire ribbon (shown) make this bridal gown perfectly fit for a fall wedding. Who wears it best: The hues in this collection nicely complement fair complexions. If autumn days left you ashen, this ivory hue is for you.
Always the Bridesmaid, Never the Bridezilla
The ugly bridesmaid dress is a thing of the past. We’re not sure why it took so long for it to fade into oblivion. A bridezilla’s entourage has got to look good. The fall collection of bridesmaids dresses by Lazaro are absolutely gorgeous with shimmery satin, rich colors, and the most delightful little details. Who knew being a lowly bridesmaid could look so fabulous? Who wears it best: If your bridesmaids haven’t succumbed to noshing on holiday goodies and still have their summer figures, choose a knee-length style. It’s a hot fall trend and they’ll be able to wear the dress again. But if your girls need full coverage, go with full-length. When in doubt, leave her out.
We hope you enjoyed this autumn gown extravaganza. These gowns and more found at JLM Couture.
