Choosing your wedding gown. To me this one of the most exciting parts of the planning process. How do you want to look on your wedding day? Modern, elegant, sweet or over -the- top stunning? Of course you want to feel comfortable in whatever you are wearing and it’s important to try on a variety of gowns and designers before you choose the final one. We all have different body shapes and certain gowns will look better on certain shapes. By going to a salon or designer they can help you with the fitting process.

Martha Stewart Weddings went on a Pinterest rampage recently, and I found myself pouring through a bunch pf photos of adorable and stylish bridesmaid dresses. It was a new 2013 collection from Alfred Sung. Without further ado, here’s the latest in bridesmaid dresses!
Alfred Sung Bridesmaid Dresses Fall 2013 Collection
I love this simple fitted bodice with A line skirt for a bridesmaid dress. The color is rich and fabulous. Pay special attention to the shoe choices for today. I love the colored shoes they paired with these dresses. And really, what is not to love about pockets in a bridesmaids dress? I used to think pockets in your wedding dress were as good as it could get, but not really. If all of your bridesmaids have pockets, that is a lot more storage space for lipstick, or whatever other emergency wedding items you may need.
More pockets, pleats, and a very feminine bridesmaid dress.
This dress is classy and chic! This one would be perfect for a modern wedding. Earrings and great shoes are a must for this stunning dress.
Halter top dresses look great on lots of different body types. If you have bridesmaids with full chests, this is a great choice. This dress is sure to be a winner with many brides and bridesmaids.
This dress is even more feminine than the other pink dress. This one has a hint of the 1950s in it if you ask me. The sleeves are adorable.
Which of the bridesmaid dresses was your favorite? Finding a dress that will be flattering to all of your bridesmaids can be a challenge, but I think there are plenty of options above. I think this is a strong collection and I can’t wait to see some of these in real wedding photos!
