The Best Bridesmaids Dresses, Flower Girl Dresses, and Fabulous Shoes

Here are my 2007 picks for bridesmaids dresses, flower girls and shoes.

Best Modern Bridesmaids Dresses: Lynn Lugo
Hands down, Lynn Lugo is the undisputed winner. These dresses are fresh and modern. Your bridesmaids will love you because they will totally be able to wear these dresses again and again. Isn't that really what it is all about. Here are my favs:

Best New Bridesmaids Dress Discovery: Coren Moore
Enter Coren Moore to the wedding fashion industry. What splash Coren Moore made. Here's another designer who understands that bridesmaids want to buy something that they can wear again. Here are my favs:

Most Elegant Bridesmaids Dresses: Melissa Sweet
I love Melissa Sweet's Bridesmaids line. Usually, I am a Vera Wang kinda girl when it comes to bridesmaids dresses. But this line by Melissa Sweet slightly edges Vera Wang's collection. But Wang's collection for 2008 is fabulous so I am sure that she will be back on top by the end of 2008. Here are my favs:

The Best Bridesmaid Dress Alternative: Kina Fernandez and Akira Isogawa
Spanish designer, Kina Fernandez and Japanese designer (by way of Australia), Akira Isogawa were the hands down winners for me with Julie Haus running a close third. Here are my favs from both:

Kina Fernandez

Akira Isogawa

Here is a different take on the Bridesmaid Dress (sans the red shoes). These modern styles are from Japanese designer (resides in Australia), Akira Isogawa. View the entire collection at: Akira Designs

Best Modern Flower Girl Dresses and Tiaras: Smitherman and Barnwell
These were a wonderful find for me. I have been waiting for someone to come up with flower girl dresses that were stylish and modern. Well here you have it. Here are my favs:

Flower Girl Dresses

Flower Girl Tiaras

The Best Wedding Shoes at a Reasonable Price: Shelley George
If you do not have $500 to drop on a pair of new fabulous wedding shoes, then here is the practical choice for elegant wedding shoes. Here are my favs:

The Best Wedding Shoes - Regardless of Price: Christian Louboutin and Stuart Weitzman
For me, it's a tie. I love both Louboutin and Weitzman. Both will break the bank but you will undeniably look like a million bucks. You can find both at stores like Saks, Barney's, Bergdorf Goodman, and Neiman Marcus. Here is one from each:

Christian Louboutin

Stuart Weitzman

you really lost me on smitherman & barnwell... although I wanted something BEAUTIFUL and CLASSIC I also want to be sure my mothers are not outraged at the price knowing that, I picked much more reasonably priced, albeit just as georgeous flower girl dresses at ---
we are having fantastic flower girl dresses made for our 5/31 wedding in TN. I went to my girlfriends wedding in September and she loved their customer service (in fact my friend's wedding just received Pegeen Wedding of the Year there

my maids have gotten in their coren moore dresses recently and I was very pleased !

hope this helps.

tddyfla, you are right. it was more about something different than with price. i also used for my wedding but these dresses were exceptional and different.
