This dress is made with Duchess satin and has a beautiful Italian lace overlay, with it's fishtail design and excellent corsetry it creates an perfect hour glass figure and the gentle sweetheart neckline really flatters the bust. The dress has a silk ruched panel that goes across the waist line, this is very flattering helping to pull you in at the right places and also breaks up the lace look. I purchased a detachable train to go with the dress from Caroline Castigliano, the train attaches at the back waist line with a beautiful satin flower

wedding blogsFor the past couple of years, we have put together an annual list of Top 100 Wedding Blogs that are widely considered to be genuine influencers of where the bridal industry is heading. Some of these wedding blogs dedicate themselves to a specific niche (DIY, Budget, Offbeat, Groom, Eco), while others are boundless in their creative sharing. Some are new, some are old, and some are so cutting-edge, we simply can't ignore them. Although each blog is different, each one of our Top 100 functions with the purpose of motivating, inspiring, relating and educating their audience on everything wedding. When combined, these 100 wedding blogs truly create the pulse of an entire industry.

Creating such a authoritative list falls on the wedding community itself. Each year, we received thousands of emails, blog comments and tweets from people within the bridal scene suggesting who should be included in the upcoming list of the Top 100 Wedding Blogs. There are dozens & dozens of new wedding blogs popping up everyday, so putting each one on our radar is definitely a task we welcome and take seriously.

For the next week or so, we would like to ask the all you planning brides, product vendors, wedding pros, and bridal obsessed to share their favorite wedding blogs that are not currently on our Top 100 list. We want to know which wedding blogs are under-rated, under-featured and unknown to most of the wedding world, but are definitely Top 100 material.

So what are you waiting for! Simply leave a comment below with a link to the website and we'll do our best to check it out. Remember, we're only looking for wedding blogs that are not currently on our Top 100 list.

Blue Bridesmaid Dresses

Blue Bridesmaid Dresses

Blue has long been associated with weddings, because it stands for fidelity. Blue also happens to be a lovely color that flatters almost everyone who wears it. When you are looking for the perfect color for your bridesmaid dresses, you will find that blue is a great choice.

The color blue has many wonderful feelings that it can create. Blue is often seen as a serene and relaxing color, which makes it a great choice for a wedding (because anything that you can do to make your wedding day calmer is a good thing!). Blue is also the color of the ocean and the sky, which makes it a great option for outdoor weddings, especially those on the water. Blue can also be terrific for an evening wedding or a very formal one, when you look at deep shades like navy or cobalt. With so many possibilities, there is a shade of blue that will work for almost every wedding.

Two very popular shades of blue for bridesmaid dresses are pale aqua and sky blue. These are happy and light colors which are perfect for a wedding on a summer afternoon. You can keep the look fresh and breezy with a strapless dress with a white sash and pearl bridal jewelry. Finish the look with a cute pair of strappy sandals (white or silver would look nice), and a natural hairstyle. It would be a gorgeous look for a reception on a boat or at a yacht club.

If you are going for something a little more sophisticated, the lighter shades of blue mix very well with espresso brown to create a very chic and stylish color palette that you can carry throughout your wedding. Look for bridesmaid dresses in modern cuts, like simple long spaghetti strap gowns created from silk chiffon. This is a dress that does not scream "bridesmaid dress", so your friends might actually be able to wear it for another party in the future. After all, with the cost of most bridesmaid dresses, it would be nice if they were not only useful for one day.

Another very pretty shade of blue is periwinkle, which is a pastel with a touch of lavender in it. This is a lovely romantic version of blue that looks wonderful for spring weddings. Periwinkle combines very well with pale yellow and bright apple green for a very fresh look. If you choose periwinkle dresses for your bridesmaids, you can have them carry bouquets that combine the yellow and apple green with soft lavender and blue flowers. You could even have bridesmaid jewelry custom made with crystals in all three colors for a perfect gift.

Navy is a very traditional shade of blue that works great for formal or evening weddings. The only thing to keep in mind with navy, is that in dim lighting and black and white pictures it can appear black. The classic navy satin A-line bridesmaid dress would be very nice for a winter reception after 6pm. If you choose navy dresses for the daytime, you can brighten them up with accents in colors like periwinkle or white, which will have a crisp nautical effect.

Blue is one of the few colors that will not clash with anyone's skin or haircolor, which makes it a natural choice for bridesmaid dresses. The classic good looks of blue will always be in style. Whether your wedding is beachy, formal, or somewhere in between, you will find a blue bridesmaid dress that works beautifully.
