Bridesmaid Dresses: On Trend in Tangerine

Do you know what the color of 2012 is? Pantone does. It’s called Tangerine Tango and this world renowned color institute has crowned it the year’s queen of color! Dozens of celebrities have been spotted wearing this bold and seductive shade and it has been all over the runway this season. Designers like Charlotte Ronson, Tommy Hilfiger, Peter Som and Derek Lam have worked Tangerine Tango into their lines.

Consider incorporating this vibrant and beautiful shade into your wedding color scheme. At first, when you see the color you may absolutely love it and completely commit to it, or you may shy away from it and desire something a little more subdued. It ultimately depends on you (and your bridesmaids’) personality.

Designer Leila Rose’s bridesmaid dress collection boasts a tangerine tone that will look great at your summer wedding on bronze bodies. Some of the dresses are even paired with a black belt embellishment (that will make waists look so tiny). Dress style numbers LX171, LR172 and LR173 own this color and are classically shaped to complement your bridal party’s figures. You should be able to find these wedding gowns at a good, high-end bridal salon.

Other lines also carry the color Tangelo, which is slightly lighter and brighter than Tangerine Tango. Again, perfect for Spring and Summer; this tone is sure to stand out in wedding party pictures.

If you love the idea of a bold, bright and modern color but solid orange tones have never been your favorite, why not try a color like Persimmon and Maize? They have hints of orange in the red and gold colors of the dress. This year it will be easy and on trend to find a tangerine inspired color that will work for your wedding party.

Short and Sweet Wedding Dresses

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. This is the age-old saying brides have abided by for year and years. If you are anything but traditional, you might want to consider some short (but sweet) wedding dresses that reflect another mantra — out with the old, in with the new.

Short dresses are great for brides who are opting for destination weddings, summer weddings, non-traditional ceremonies or receptions, or for those ladies who simply demand to be noticed.

A few movie brides have sported this look on their silver screen wedding day. Rachel McAdams donned a short dress in “The Vow,” showing off her legs (and personality). Actress Mia Farrow wore a shorter styled wedding dress for her real, off-screen wedding.

Mini dresses’ hemlines may be lacking, but their creativity and sexiness certainly are not! Some great designers like Maggie Sottero and Allure Bridal have included shorter dresses in their lines that look incredibly modern and chic, while still remaining elegant.

If you’re not willing to go all in, when it comes to short dress designs, many bridal designers combine short and long cuts on their designs. Wedding dresses with staggered hemlines are very new, very playful and figure flattering. They play peek-a-boo in the front, and hide and seek in the back.

After selecting the degree of shortness that works for you, you can really play up your footwear accessories. Playful pops of color or a sparkly neutral shoe will wow your guests and spectators. Jeweled sandals can adorn your toes if planning an “I Do” at the beach (or, wear nothing at all for some bold, barefoot beauty).

If tradition has never been your thing, short and sweet styles may be the ideal way for you to go.

Bag to hold your most necessary items on one of the most important days of your life? Whoops! Get on it! Your wedding bag may be one of the last things you finalize before taking your stroll down the aisle, but many brides don’t realize the importance of this wedding accessory.

The perfect clutch will be able to hold your keys, camera, make-up (for touch-ups), cell phone, and other beauty products. You will most likely have it with you as you are greeting your guests or resting on your table (in which it will appear in pictures) throughout the reception.

Bel Aire Bridal has a lot of clutches that will look like a jewel in your hands. Specifically, style number P1200 is sparkly and petite. However it is large enough to carry your essentials. It will complement any dress because it is made in a silky satin and has classic lines that are virtually timeless. You can also use it for other special events like anniversary dinners (it will always remind you of your special day).

Clutches also make a great gift to give to your wedding party. Your girls will surely appreciate a bag they can also use to hold their most prized possessions that will keep them looking radiant and refreshed throughout the night. Neutral or classic colors can be used again and again, so opt for a style and color from which they can get a lot of use. Or, if your girls are sassy and have super outgoing personalities (or just appreciate color in general), opt for a great clutch that will give your girls’ dresses a pop of color and will pair nicely with neutral dresses.

Remember, when it comes to selecting a clutch to meet your wedding needs, say “I do,” to a bag that is fashionable and highly functional a!
