High-Low dresses for the Mother-of-the-Bride are in for 2017-2018 weddings! The high-low hemline is nothing new, with this cutaway front style being first seen in Victorian times, and coming back into fashion during certain decades of the 20th century. Most of the 2017 versions of the high-low hemlines we’ve been seeing offer a balanced look that offers just a little peek of the ankle and calf, but still keeps the gown at a formal length. These modern classic silhouettes make for a great choice for fashion-forward mothers seeking a gown for their daughter or son’s wedding, especially when done in a beautiful flowing chiffon fabric or in a silk or taffeta ball gown.
Lately we’ve seen so many high-low styles we love, we’ve decided to dedicate a few points to this look, starting off with these choices for mother-of-the-bride dresses. The emerald green style above would be ideal for a fall wedding, but we’ve seen hi-low hems in dresses for all seasons. Here are a few more favorite looks!
Floral, Peach, Blush and Cream Bridesmaid Dresses to Mix and Match
It’s time for another look at a mix-and match bridesmaid dress color scheme in our mix and match series (see our other mismatched bridesmaid ideas here)! Today’s look is perfect for the spring-almost-summer season – it’s a mix of peaches and cream!
This color range of blush, cream, peach, and soft blush and pink florals is a unique way to mix up colors for a spring or summer wedding. Ivory and cream bridesmaid dresses are re-gaining popularity as a bridesmaid dress color, but if you’re not ready for all your bridal party to wear white, mixing a little peach and blush, or some pretty floral print bridesmaid dresses in blush and neutrals, will break up the look! Such a sweet color combo for a garden wedding!Read More
June IS the prime-time wedding season, and we once again have a full post of ideas for what to wear to this month’s weddings. Our styled look above is inspired by a few trends we love for summer 2017, and for wedding guest-wear in general!
The look above blends the best of these hot trends we are seeing this Summer 2017 : an off-the-shoulder silhouette, ruffles galore, a chic midi length with hi-low hem, oh-so hot tassel chandelier earrings, and bright punchy colors! It’s a festive look to ring in summer events in cheerful vibrant hues! This dress is really versatile for afternoon to evening — perhaps just add some more upscale sparkling accessories for evening – this bright festive look is a bit more daytime! If this dress isn’t quite the one for you or not the right formality for your event, then I have a few more picks for you, in order of dress code!Read More

Long White Sequin Gowns. Inspired by Rachel’s Dress on The Bachelorette!
Like any good wedding blogger, I love love and the search for love – which means, I love watching The Bachelorette because it has both love, and — as a bonus for my line of work — it also lots of eye-catching fashion!
As my husband and I watched Rachel Lindsay begin her journey last night, we couldn’t take our eyes off of that stunning long beaded gown she wore! A few Google searches later, I discovered that the gown was a custom hand-beaded Randi Rahm gown! However, that didn’t stop me from finding a other dazzling white sequin gowns along the way, so over course I saved them. These dress finds and shopping sources might help you out if you want to get a similar beaded gown, but don’t have the means for custom dressmaking.Read More
