Designer Spotlight: Melissa Sweet

Yay, it's Thursday tomorrow, we're another day closer to the weekend! :D

I've noticed that I haven't posted about wedding stuff for quite some time now, so I thought I'd share some Melissa Sweet creations with everyone today.

1. Bee - French lace strapless A-line gown with draped bustline, dropped torso and hand-beaded tiered skirt.

2. Dora - Strapless dotted organza with ruched wrapped bodice and self-tie sash.

3. Felice - Narrow V-neck gown of organza with lace-edged straps, contrast sash, and flounced A-line skirt.

4. Laeticia - English net strapless gown with ruched bustline, scattered hand-cut lace flowers, and full, sweeping skirt.

5. Natalie - Re-embroidered French lace slim gown with ruffled cap sleeves and delicate sprinkled beadwork throughout.

6. Uma - Silk organza strapless ballgown with diagonally draped bodice and fabric petal embellished skirt.

7. Valentina - Modified A-line gown of floral guipure lace over organdy with lightly beaded sweetheart neckline.

8. Wallis - Silk crinkle chiffon strapless fit-and-flare gown with fabric roses of various sizes appliqued all over and silk organza sash at waist.

Besides these beautiful wedding gowns, they also have gorgeous bridesmaids dresses.

Black and Gray:

They also have the most beautiful colors.

Shades of purple:

*The back of this dress is my favorite!*


*Gorgeous color and neckline!*


Which ones did you like the most?

The only celebrity I found who wore a Melissa Sweet dress on her wedding day is Beverley Mitchell (Lucy from Seventh Heaven, remember her?).



Do you know anyone else who wore Melissa Sweet on her wedding day?

I hope you had a good Wednesday! :D

  36. Manor West focuses on three basic elements to stand out in the San Francisco Nightlife scene: the design, the crowd and the talent. As you walk into Manor West, you are greeted by an impressive 30 ft backdrop designed by Yelena Yemchuk, former Creative Director for the Smashing Pumpkins. The rest of the interior, a direct antithesis to the unassuming (and almost hidden) exterior of the venue, feels comfortable and spacious with high oak ceilings and a raised VIP bottle service area.

    The 4,500 square foot venue has the feel of a smaller, more intimate venue. Creative placement of bars, bathrooms and VIP areas solve the flow problems that some clubs can experience on busy nights by releasing bottlenecks and making it easier to access the essential features of the club. Raised VIP booths surround the DJ Booth and allow VIP groups access to a private area with views of the entire club while a large VIP area in the back of the club allows groups of 20 to 30 to celebrate together. Talent like Caroline D’Amore, DJ Spider, Dirt Nasty, Andre Legacy and local favorites Designer Djs, Cams and Zhaldee have already graced the decks and SF can look forward to an impressive lineup of top notch DJs and bands to show up throughout 2010.
