While I love ruffles, rosettes and all of that girly-ness, I also adore the chicness of a beautifully sleek and modern gown.These dresses by Suzanne Neville are unfussy and simple...with the details strategically placed to accentuate a woman's body... so lovely! My fave is the one shoulder dress with the glam embellishments...absolutely gorgeous!

I personally love and prefer a beautiful high heeled shoe, however, your bridesmaids may be a little more practical. Luckily, cute special occasion flats are very trendy these days!
Although, these Kate Spade flats do not have a practical price... at $285, your bridesmaids' may be a tad bit offended if you suggested these pretties (unless you're forking the bill)....but, there are many affordable options to choose from via the internet or in department stores....get searching! :-)

Recently, I posted about former a Project Runway contestant....now I'm posting about another one: 2008 winner, Leanne Marshall. She was known on the show for her remarkable way of using fabric in "wave like ruffles," a unique trademark of her designs. Two years later, I think she's doing a fabulous job of incorporating her "waves" into new and exciting designs in her bridal collection...great job, Leanne!

If you're looking for this style of wedding dress, Designer Douglas Hannant has the eye for making gorgeous romantic Grecian Goddess like gowns. His collections are for the modern bride who craves to be different, but still adores the easy romantic feel. I really love the soft floral printed dress in purples and greens...although it is not a white dress, the bride wearing this beauty will still *undeniably* be the belle of the ball...love!

Monique Lhuillier is one of the best designers when it comes to modern + feminine wedding gowns. Her 2011 Spring/Summer Collection is wonderfully diverse...with lace and beading and rosettes, but, there's still that polished modern edge. My 2 favorites here are the lace dress with the beautiful vintage style lace overlay...and the strapless sleek beaded gown is just fabulous!
