Tea Length and Short Wedding and Reception Dresses

There is no rule that a wedding gown has to be long. I love the femininity of these dresses and think they would make an elegant statement for a wedding. A big trend right now is having a second dress on hand for the reception. These dresses are also perfect for brides who choose to do this. You will still look like the bride, but be able to have more freedom to boogie on the dance floor! These dresses are available now and are all stunning!

Bandage Dresses, So Hot Right Now!

The Bandage Dress was first made in the 80's by Hervé Léger. It became an instant hit with celebrities and models. The style has lasted till now. Hervé Léger's is the ultimate designer of the bandage dress, but a few other brands have tackled it and succeeded. And now they are available in a wide range of prices. For example, Wet Seal has a couple of great bandage dresses for under $30 and I personally think theirs looks better than some of the more expansive versions out there.
