  • Lots of texture - organza, overlays, pleating, peak-a-boo tulle, tone on tone
  • Short dresses---change into at the reception, beach weddings, etc. (mannequin)
  • Color! Blush is making a huge comeback, others have color accents
  • Jackets/cover ups (mannequin)
  • Emphasis on the waist---beading & sashes.
  • Elegance is key, nothing over the top

Tips for dress shopping

  • Shop early---6-9 months before the wedding
  • Bring only one or two confidants on your dress search
  • Make sure to make an appointment for good service
  • Bring photos but keep an open mind
