Turquoise bridesmaid dresses I'd wear to a wedding

Since finding out that turquoise is going to be a popular color for weddings in 2010, I took the liberty of searching for the cutest bridesmaid dresses. Imagine your wedding overlooking a beach or a lake as your colors resonate in calming hues of blue! What I like about aqua is that it is also such a versatile color. You can match it with red, brown, or even pink! Check out these lovely finds:

from Jim Hjelm Occasions - luv this gorgeous taffeta tea-length bridesmaid dress with a sexy halter neckline. Match it with a pretty topaz drop earrings, a sleek moire fabric purse, and espadrilles.

from Debenhams - this aqua taffeta dress says young and blissful. It's cute! Almost like going to prom all over again, but with more style. Pair it with pretty white flats or ballerina shoes and a leather wristlet.

from Peacocks Boutique - a two-piece satin strapless top with a simple A-line skirt. I think this is great for people with height!

Plaid Weddings Are Here to Stay

I could not be more in love with plaid or more popularly known by Scots as tartan. Back in school, I actually had a plaid skirt as my uniform! Perhaps I should have kept the skirt now that it seems to be back in fashion. And for a wedding in tartan, this could be a very colorful and texturally interesting display. Consider a dress trimmed in red plaid all the way to a matching invitation that carries on the theme beautifully! A palette to accompany this is needed:

Pretty Wedding Dress from - This is my favorite so far!

Wedding Invitations from - Luv it, gorgeous baby!

Flower Girl Dress from Macy's - So cute - it could steal the show. Perfect!

Chocolate Cup Wedding Cake from Sweetart in the UK - This is a cool alternative to a traditional cake! Inspirational!

And let's not forget the Kilt from

Be pretty in plaid!
