sassy, short gowns by melissa sweet

It's summer, and it's the perfect time to show some sass and style by rockin' a short couture bridal gown! I've kept an eye out for Melissa Sweet's dresses for some time now -- she also designs some of the most haute bridesmaid gowns. I love her style and choice of materials -- 2009 is all about texture. If you've got ideas for a themed wedding, love 50s style, or are simply that type of person who just wants to be different -- make a statement! Just dab on some luscious red or fuschia lipstick, and voila! -- instant sass.

Melissa Sweet attended Parsons School of Design in New York and Bauder College in Georgia, and in 1996, opened up her own bridal salon. She then sold her bridal company to Priscilla of Boston in 2005, and in 2008, she left to pursue another dream. Her designs are now being carried out by two phenomenal designers, Antonio Gual and Lia McNairy.*
