Bridal trends over the past few seasons have been veering away from conservative and adding more non-traditional details, ranging from shorter hemlines, color-infused details to tiers of ruffles and rosettes. One look that’s still going strong is old school, red-carpet glamour with a mix of over-the-top runway. Think movie sirens like Ava Gardner, Marlene Dietrich and Liz Taylor with a lil’ Dior thrown in for fall wedding dresses. Luxurious fabrics, faux-fur and gathered trains with embellished crystals scream classic vintage movies. Warm, dusty colors such as pale pink, salmon and lavender have been very dominant for bridesmaid dresses this spring. For the Melissa Sweet line, red made quite a statement for an alternative to a fairer color palette. One can assume that this line is referencing the Carolina Herrera Spring 2010 collection of retro hats and feathers, since these straw fedoras as a bridesmaid accessory are amazing!
