How to dress your bridesmaids in my favorite fall trend... metallics!!!

I love a good metallic... now when I say metallic I’m not thinking of sparkly, glittery Ms. America stuff. I’m talking refined, sexy glimmer. Sparkle is for 13 year olds. Shimmer is for a woman. This trend is already being rocked by the red carpets finest, Carrie Underwood, Sienna Miller, Diane Kruger, etc. So basically you don’t have to take my word for it, this trend is here to stay. Look beyond just silver and gold, look for interesting colors like bronze, pewter, brass, even shimmery garnets. And in this case, I don’t think that I would do much mixing and matching, but with the right balance it could definitely work. So here are few of my faves and most of them aren’t bridesmaids dresses. Gasp!!!

So, as always please be kind to your bridesmaids... don’t make them ugly. That’s totally not cool and then your pictures are full of uggo bridesmaids dresses. Doesn’t make a lick of sense. Being good to your girls pays off with happy friends and great pictures!

Until we meet again, stay bridal and add a little sparkle to your day and trust me your girls will love you!!!!!
