If you’re thinking of including bridesmaids in your wedding, then Elie Saab could solve the dilemma of how to dress them. The Lebanese designer is an expert in shaping fashion in the bridal world. Not only does he form part of an exclusive commercial line in Pronovias created by various designers, he is also responsible for some of the most exquisite bridal creations seen on the Paris Haute Couture catwalks. It was on this exact catwalk in the Spring Summer 2012 collections, where the 47 yr old designer displayed his creative talent. He gave life to a purely Saab collection, composed entirely of a palette of pastel colours. A succession of fairytale dresses were paraded down the Parisian catwalk, a cascade of delicious alternatives in tones of cream, lemon, mint, rose and sky-blue.
For success, keep the same simple line in each of the dresses, differentiating the bride with unique tones and different cuts and lengths, and varying details like the neckline or sleeve length.
