NEW TREND: THE SHEER OVER BODICE

Want to really look like a traditional bride? Try the strapless with an over bodice.  This look is a hark back to the the 1950s when sheer organza or lace was worn up top for coverage (in church you couldn't bare anything back then).  Another blast from the past is the return of the removable bodice: A modest look for the ceremony and unbutton the front or back and you have a formal strapless for party time.  These sheer geniuses are from the collections of designers Stephanie Allin and Augusta Jones.  All are breathtakingly classic and the epitome of sheer elegance . . .

For the ideal bridesmaid dresses check out Myriad 6 convertible dresses. One dress you can wear in so many different ways and all your bridesmaids can find a style that best suits their shape and size. What’s better is that the bridesmaids can wear their dresses again and not shove them a t the back of the wardrobe never to be seen again.

Absolutely gorgeous. I especially love the long-sleeved one. Lace is so sexy, but elegant and timeless as well.

May the force be with you.
