As I sat watching the looks from Tadashi Shoji Spring 2012 waft by (and they definitely wafted, just look at them), I couldn’t get the phrase “garden wedding” out of my head. Shoji’s collection isn’t bridal, it’s ready-to-wear, but I can’t help but think that there are wonderful spring wedding frocks in this set of dresses for everyone from brides to bridesmaids to guests.
I doubt that Shoji would balk at the suggestion, because he surely knew that doing a collection full of floor-length gowns in light neutrals and cocktail-length dresses in spring brights and prints would call to mind April nuptials in lush, verdant surroundings. If you know someone who’s getting married next year, take note of this collection. Even more so if you’re a slightly nontraditional bride; the white, nude and pale silver dresses aren’t classic bridal, but they’d be perfect for a modern woman. Highlights, as always, are after the jump.
