Romance Inspired by Melissa Sweet Wedding Dresses from David’s Bridal

There is something so wonderful about modern interpretations of vintage classics – and in the case of Melissa Sweet wedding dresses, such an interpretation has been done to perfection! Their beautiful use of soft silhouettes and exquisite fabrics create dreamy, feminine dresses with a flattering ease. The result are dresses that are equally wonderful in a ballroom, formal garden setting, or intimate outdoor wedding at your family home.

Melissa Sweet has been an exclusive brand for David’s Bridal since 2012, and when they approached us about creating a shoot for them showcasing the nostalgic vintage appeal of these lovely dresses we couldn’t wait! With artisanal details in the dresses like the cascading lace, delicate ribbon trims, and intricate hand-sewn beading, we knew that historical Kohl Mansion would be the perfect backdrop for them. Built in 1914, it is a beautiful setting for showcasing Melissa Sweet’s graceful nod to the past with these modern dresses. Their blending of modern necklines and sleeves, with fine, vintage detailing offers a  choice for every taste. One thing that is really great about Melissa Sweet dresses (besides being beautiful) is that they carry choices that are wonderful for all sizes of curves.

David’s Bridal  makes your wedding fashion super easy, whether you are looking for a wedding dress (sizes 0-30), bridesmaid dresses, shoes, handbags, or accessories, they have what you are dreaming of. In addition to the Melissa Sweet dresses shown, all of the spring ready bridesmaid dresses, accessories and shoes are available at David’s Bridal as well! We have to admit that the colors of the bridesmaid dresses are a dream (and these are just a few of the many colors available).  David’s Bridal believes every woman deserves to have the wedding of her dreams regardless of her style preference, shape, size or budget. They have more than 60 years experience catering to brides and their bridal parties, so know how to meet your every need.
