Summer style trend: Colored lace dresses

Attention all lace-loving ladies! There's a new trend you'll want to keep in mind as you pick out formal dresses for the events you're attending this summer: colored lace. Yes, this elegant material is getting an update, and you'll definitely want to give this modern take on a classic look a try. Here are three ways to wear this vibrant style:

1. All-over color
If you want to go all-out with this trend, you can't beat the look of all-over colored lace. Because this is such a bold choice, it's important that you choose a dress with a high neckline - you don't want too much going on!

3. Layered look
There are two ways to take on the layered look: Search for a gown that has a slip underneath a dress made of colored lace, or pair the lace with another type of fabric in the same bold color (think a pink lace top with a fuchsia taffeta skirt).

3 Must-Haves For a Destination Wedding

If you and your other half are choosing to jet set off to a faraway tropical location to tie the knot, here are a few must-haves you'll want for your destination wedding:

1. A beachy gown
A princess ball gown might be beautiful, but it may not be the most appropriate choice for the beach. Avoid sweating up at the altar by choosing from destination wedding dresses that can really breathe. Opt for lightweight fabrics like chiffon, charmeuse and georgette that will blow beautifully with the soft beach breeze.

2. A wedding welcome bag
It's likely that your guests don't know a whole lot about the location where they're staying for your nuptials. therefore, a wedding welcome bag can provide them with important information like nearby attractions, great restaurants and a schedule of the day's events.

3. Functional favors
Consider giving out wedding favors that will come in handy during your ceremony and reception. For example, personalized bottles of sunscreen will keep your guests protected from the sun's rays while you exchange vows with your fiance. You can also set up a table filled with sunglasses, which your guests can help themselves to. This way, the sun's glare won't get in the way of your wedding day!

3 Wedding Guest Style Tips

Wedding guest dresses can be nearly as tricky to find as wedding gowns. There is no shortage of rules that apply when shopping. Make sure to never wear white, follow these tips, and you won't go wrong.  

Your best option here is to choose something not too structured. A slinky satin gown will offer you the right blend of sexy and classy. Sexy doesn't mean short - these sleek gowns should hit just above the knee or be a bit longer.  

If you have decided to wear a simple dress, because, let's be honest, it is not your day, go ahead and use your accessories to make a style statement. Choose from large bracelets or pearl necklaces, but keep in mind that it can be difficult to dance for hours while weighed down by heavy jewelry. Complete this look with subtle makeup.

This trend can give you a non-slinky, yet still chic, option for the wedding. Choose cutouts that will flatter your silhouette, enhancing your figure. If side panels are too much skin for you, go ahead and opt for a keyhole back. This will give you the opportunity to show off a bit of your glowing skin without raising too many eyebrows.
