Sleek + Chic Bridal Dresses by Suzanne Neville

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!

{Fuchsia, Black + Flats} Bridesmaids' Style

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! :-)

Bridal Dress Style By Leanne Marshall

Recently, I posted about former a Project Runway 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!

{Gorgeous} Wedding Dresses by Monique Lhuillier

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!
