The short wedding dress makes a come back!

One of my favorite trends inspired from the 50's and 60's is the short wedding  dress.  Brides wearing short dresses is not a fad, but a classic style that has come back from 50 years ago!

The Sophia gown, featured in this picture is one of my favorites from the Melissa Gentile Couture 2011 collection!

Want to wear a long gown for your wedding but love the idea of a short flirty dress? Why not change into a short dress later at night during your reception! This is another big trend that is also making a come back, this one from the 70's and 80's!

Lavender and shades of Purple are the new black for 2011 - 2012

More and more brides are opting to include abit of color in their wedding day look.  A soft lavender silk sash gives an elegant look to a drop waist ball gown. 

Fun shoes and bird cage veils with feather fascinators give interesting color and texture to the bride's look.

As decades come and go, couples are letting go of the traditional wedding album portraits and opting for more fun and romantic new photography styles which really represent their personality as both individuals and as a couple.

I personally fell completely in love with this picture by blfStudios in Winnipeg!  The interesting lighting effects really capture the romance of dancing in the rain.
