This time last year I was packing up a collection of beautiful dresses that were to be sent all over the USA to convene at a rather spectacular Southern wedding in Virginia. You can read more about the whole wedding here on I Love Southern Weddings.

Dianna had a brilliant group of bridesmaids all looking for something a little different in the beautiful shades of peppermint, cream and dove grey. Working from quite a distance (as we nearly always do) Dianna called me to discuss the details of all the dress and ended up commissioning some of the dresses I am most excited by. The Yellow Dianna dress was named after her and was worn for her pre wedding dinner. We made a fabulous mother of the bride gown that still makes me smile when I stumble across the photos, this will be coming up soon and a sassy cream lace mini dress for her getaway!

The Tiffany dress was cut with a pleated shoulder V neckline and slightly dropped waist panel smoothing the line to the full skirt. The Carole dress is designed with pure chic in mind with a boat neckline and sheer silk organdie panels at the back. The Kirsten dress was also made in ivory and is a heavy corded lace party dress in he softest dove grey. The Betty's big night had a revamp in cream silk and trimmed with a grosgrain bow for the wedding. Simple and very elegant. And the Asia, cool peppermint green with dramatic floral ruffle corsages on the shoulder making a very pretty summer statement.

I am still awaiting photos of more of the bridal party but for now I am very pleased to share these beautiful photos by Megan W Photography of some of the bridesmaids together with Dianna in that incredible gown by Jill Andrews Gowns.
