One of the most popular posts I’ve done was a few seasons ago when I showed a green gown for the Mother-of-the-Bride, and this season emerald green’s cousin –deep forest green– and emerald green gowns are back with an absolutely stunning array of choices. I’ve styled the gown above for a Mother-of-the-Bride, but the gown can really be worn by anyone – it would be beautiful for bridesmaids, guests of black tie weddings, or for a holiday party gala. There are several more absolutely must-see gowns in this striking color available for the fall winter season. I’ve selected a few of my favorites below. I’m sure you’ll agree – they classic, but totally extraordinary and sure to be compliment-getters!
