With mismatching bridal parties becoming quite the norm, we decided to pull together a weekly post to pair the dresses that we think brides and their bridesmaids would adore. This week we are starting with a timeless champagne look that we’re sure you’d look back on twenty years from now and still love!

The Dress: Jim Hjelm style 8305

Classic Bridesmaid Dresses:

Alvina Valenta, style 9327

Golden Globe Wedding Gowns!

We know by looking at today’s social media posts that weddings were on the brain with all the amazing ladies in white (and blush tones!) last night at the Golden Globes. There wasn’t a single look we didn’t love, but there were a select few that we couldn’t help but have a soft spot for!

Clint Eastwood’s daughter Francesca looked amazing in vintage Armani. She is paired here with our own Francesca’s bridal style- Jim Hjelm 8254

Haydan Panettiere looks incredible in this soft pink Roberto Cavalli gown, but we couldn’t help but think she would look just as gorgeous in this favorited Alvina Valenta style!

Lea Michele looked sensational in this white Elie Saab gown. If she was looking to walk down the aisle in something similiar, Alvina Valenta style 9302 is perfection!
