Bridesmaids' Style: White Dresses?

Bridesmaids' Style: White Dresses by Nina Renee Designs

Yes. Who said your bridesmaids can't wear white?? Not me, especially after seeing this gorgeous bridal party.

What really distinguishes the bride, Candice Crawford, from her maids is that her St. Pucchi gown is opulent and detailed, but, the girls' dresses are simple, short & sweet (by Badgely Mischka). Among all of the prettiness, there's no taking away from this bride's shine! And, the cherry on top is Candice's gorgeous reception dress by Badgely Mischka...just fabulous.

{Vintage Charm} Bridal Style by BHLDN

{Vintage Charm} Bridal Style by BHLDN by Nina Renee Designs

More vintage style goodness for 2012 via BHLDN, Anthropologie's bridal sister site, which exploded onto the wedding scene last year. True to form, the gown details are reminiscent of the good 'ole days, very feminine and oh-so-fabulous. My fave is the buttercream Ethereal Monarch Gown (bottom middle), which is gorgeously embellished with hundreds of appliqued butterflies...very modern, yet, with vintage charm too!

Bridesmaids Gift Guide 2012 - Part 2

Bridesmaids Gift Guide 2012 - Part 2 by Nina Renee Designs

There are a tremendous amount of choices when it comes to bridesmaids jewelry, and choosing the perfect style for your girls can be overwhelming! Two suggestions: let the style of your wedding be your guide...and choose jewelry which can be worn again to future events.

For a quirky, eclectic wedding, these mosaic pendant necklaces by The Broken Plate (the jewelry is literally made from broken plates!) are too cute; for the fun destination beach wedding, these adorable clay pendant necklaces by Palomaria are perfect; however, if glam is your style of choice, you may want to check out these Swarovki crystal necklaces by yours truly; then, last but certainly not least, for the classic wedding, I love these pearl pendant necklaces with the cute little initial heart charm by Otis B Weddings.

{Gorgeous & Modern Red} Bridal Style

{Gorgeous & Modern Red} Bridal Style by Nina Renee Designs

Add a bold statement by accessorizing your bridal gown with these stunning chrome heeled red shoes...I dare you :). If you must match the red up with something, try having a lush red rose bouquet for more pop; then complete the look with a sparkly headband and earrings.

It makes me happy just to think about a bride slightly lifting her bridal skirt to dance and there are RED shoes peeking fabulously stylish...

{Two Dresses in One} Bridal Style

Two Dresses in One Bridal Style by Nina Renee Designs

Smart and chic design by Tara Keely: an overskirt!

For the wedding ceremony, the bride is a modern day princess with a full tulle skirt and girly, with a sweet ribbon tied at the waist; later, the bride dons a sassy lace mini dress for a fun night of dancing during the wedding reception.

This fabulous dress is a great option for the bride who wants to wear 2 dresses, but, doesn't want the stress of searching for both of them (one search is more than is enough :))! Love it...
