Less Spending on Your Wedding! Wedding Dress Blog #3

by Jehnel on December 16, 2010

A prominent style in wedding gowns for the 2011 year are one-shoulder or side strap gowns.  The style of the one-shoulder gown brings class, while giving off a hint of allure.  When paired with a sweetheart neckline, don’t be surprised if it adds some extra flair.

The modern, asymmetrical, contemporary look of the one-shoulder gown can be worn even by the most traditional bride.  Her conventional style won’t be compromised when she slips on a gown of this stature.  Just more charming, and what bride doesn’t love that?

I thought of this gown a while back, and decided to (finally) blog about it.  Carolina Herrera is and has been one of my favorite designers for about seven years now.  Her wedding gowns are so dreamy and to sum it up, you just want to put them on.  I can’t explain the artistry and ingenuity of the gowns better than that.  This gown is no exception.


Gorgeous!  The trumpet silhouette is a perfect pairing to the one-shoulder look and with Carolina’s skillfulness in incorporating fabrics, it all comes together to become a unique, refined, and sophisticated dress.

The asymmetrical style is not just beautiful but it highlights your upper body and can look great on any body type.  If you’re in the market for a gorgeous one-shoulder dress, there are many options to choose from and I’ve done the hard part for you.  Below are some great, low-priced gowns that are stunners and will give that Carolina Herrera gown a run for its money.  Not to mention they’re all under $700!
