2010 Oscar Style

Sure the Oscars were over two weeks ago, but that doesn’t make those glam red carpet styles any less relevant to 2010/early 2011 brides! Let’s check out some of the looks, shall we?

Ruffles, Ruffles Everywhere

Exaggerated ruffles aren’t just a red carpet trend, they’re everywhere for spring/summer. Though because they’re normally found at the bottom of a gown, they translate beautifully when it comes to wedding gowns. You can choose the bodice and silhouette that best suits you, but go for floor sweeping, ruffles galore!

Pretty in Pastels

Pastels, also a big trend for spring, are in line with the feminine prettiness of ruffles. While they can certainly find their way onto wedding gowns, pale hues are an even better fit for bridal party attire. These pastels are less easter egg and more neutral (the favored palette this spring), making them universally appealing to your lovely maids and matrons.

Bangin’ Bangles

Whether they’re for you or your bridal party, bangles are a great way to add in a little bold style and color to your look. And remember, statement bracelets draw attention away from your arms – making you just as picture perfect as these red carpet beauties.
