Favorite Wedding Fashion Moments from 2011

We share so many stylish brides + grooms (and even flower girls + ring bearers) here on Green Wedding Shoes, that we had to take a look at some of our favorites from the past year! The vintage wedding dresses, dresses with pops of color, bow ties and more, oh my! Let’s see what we loved from 2011…


Bridesmaids in tights! We featured two adorable weddings where I fell in love with the bridesmaids and their tights. The top photo is from this Vintage Inspired Canadian Wedding photographed by Green Ginger Photography and the bottom photo is from this sweet wedding by Priscila Valentina.


These bride’s wore dresses with an unexpected pop of color which I just love! The top bride found this great dress and altered it to make the perfect wedding dress, photographed by Floataway Studios. The bride below from this Portland wedding created a rainbow tulle design to peek out from her wedding dress – so adorable…bottom photo by Ben Blood.

And we can’t forget this lovely bride and her blue ruffled tulle (and sparkly red heart ban.do shoe clips!), photographed by Feather + Stone.

Love that this bride was bold enough to wear a black + gold wedding dress! She was married on her favorite holiday, Halloween, also. Thanks to Kristen Marie for the photo.

Just love that we featured two brides who designed their dresses after that gorgeous green dress from AtonementThis bride wore a white version of the dress (photos by Images By Lori) and this bride wore red (photo by Dan O’Day )!
