Dawn Strong

If you're not ready to give up on all of the holiday hoopla quite yet, no worries. We're still in celebration mode over here at SMP, and it has everything to do with six gorgeous gowns from Maggie Sottero Designs that we just know are going to make several appearances in the new year. Check out some real brides looking beautiful in our fave frocks below.

We're big fans of anything Rebecca Ingram, and the Drew is no exception. We love the Chantilly lace, flattering V-back, and elegant scalloping around the neck and hem. But what we love the most? How this beautiful bride, Lillian, paired up her gorgeous look with a muted mint color palette and stunning white blooms. Oh, and did we mention the Rebecca Ingram line that is just as pretty as it is budget-friendly? A total win-win.

We're big fans of any gown with lace features, and the Sandra from Rebecca Ingram does it so, so beautifully with delicate lace appliqués and an illusion scoop back that that has one of the prettiest lace features ever. Bride Sarah paired her sweet fit-and-flare with mix and match bridesmaid gowns in muted hues for a look that was all kinds of classic elegance - we adore it.

Maggie Sottero's Kirstie is one of those gowns that just screams romance. But a boho wedding dress with a sheath silhouette will do that to you.  We're all about the lace appliqués that lay on top of those layers of gorgeous tulle, and the sweetheart neckline is super figure-flattering. We seriously can't get over the pink + coral color scheme that bride Mallory chose - it really shows off Kirstie's flirty side. And you know we love a classic meets sassy gown, y'all.

Sottero and Midgley is known for ultra-chic, cutting-edge gowns and the Winifred most certainly delivers with a contemporary illusion halter neckline (hey there, deep V) and a scalloped plunging back that is basically the definition of statement making. Take it from bride, Laura... this is the kind of dress that is timeless AND elegant. Oh, we love her choice of light blue bridesmaid gowns. They complement her gown in just the right way.

We've had our eyes on Patience for awhile now - and one look at the beautiful Swarovski crystal waist and you'll see why. From the stunning lace appliqués scattered across the bodice to the sweetheart neckline and corset back, it's the kind of Maggie Sottero gown that shows off your gorgeous figure with a side of sexy we can't get over. Pair it with royal blue bridesmaid gowns and a pop of yellow like bride Euridice and you've definitely got a winning combo.

We know that walking the line between classic, rustic and boho isn't always easy when it comes to wedding planning, but here's the trick: find a dress that does it for you and the rest will fall into place. Sottero and Midgley's Wyatt is just that gown with a sophisticated meets glamorous silhouette, gorgeous details (hey there, plunging illusion neckline) and lace cap sleeves. It's the kind of dress that works in any style wedding, but really shines in this rustic meets bohemian celebration. Oh, and we adore the neutral maids.
