Maddison Row and Bella Bridesmaid | 2011 Preview

If you did not get the chance to mingle over at Maddison Row last night for the showing of the 2011 Bella Bridesmaid and MR Collections…you missed out on the chance to hang out in couture heaven. But, lucky for you Sweet Tea Imagery came along to photograph the divine affair. Each gorgeous gown was perfectly paired with two bridesmaid looks from Bella Bridesmaid and the results were stunning.

tips and Trends for the bride

The ladies of Maddison Row and Bella Bridesmaid shared some wonderful upcoming trends in bridal and wedding party fashion during the debut of their collections.

For the brides at Maddison Row this is the year of fabulous fabrics. The trend is light and airy, focusing on dresses that move. Whether it be a great tiered ruffled skirt, or a long lace extended train…everything feels and looks amazing on the brides. The fit on these dresses are exceptional and brides feel great.

Belted Bling is IN! Maddison Row is in love with the bling belts and sashes (like the one on the one shoulder Vera ballgown and the ethel Vera dress.) This season, Maddison Row will be showcasing a great variety of dresses that are specific to the designers vision and are also going to have dresses that offer texture such as the Carolina Herrera v-neck, floral lace pattern.

Maddison Row is quite excited to announce that they are exclusively welcoming the Carol Hannah Whitfield wedding gown collection and will now be open on Mondays.

Allison from Bella Bridesmaid shared some trends for the bridesmaids…the hot colors are Bright yellow...not banana, but more mustard and rich dandelion, charcoals, corals, peacock, greens and navy continue to be popular and neutrals are still big, especially with the Amsale chiffons! Vanilla, blush and newly added champagne!

Style trends: straighter skirts, shorter, mini lengths, long and short chiffons. Some trends are still holding strong including the one shoulder dress, ruffles and texture and the bridal party wearing different dress styles of the same color. Some brides are even stepping out of the box and letting some dresses be short and some long but all same color! This looks best with Amsale chiffon!

Bella Bridesmaid Bestsellers are Amsale chiffon and LulaKate – build your own style!

Starting in Mid January, look for these exclusively carried lines to start arriving at Bella Bridesmaid, Monique Lhuillier Maids, 57 Grand, Carol Hannah along with new collections from: Lela Rose and Amsale – more chiffon and a revamped taffeta collection! Along with the full collection of Priscilla of Boston.

It is going to a beautifully amazing 2011!
