Thank goodness long gone are the days When I was in many weddings wearing bridesmaid dresses in hideous colors or with a giant bow on my butt. Some of them were almost as bad as the dresses worn by Katherine Heigl in the movie “27 Dresses”. This fall a lot of the popular trends for Bridesmaids Dresses and Gowns came from designer collections right off the runway. There are some really beautiful gowns that are flattering and you may actually be able to use them again for another occasion instead of gathering dust in your closet. Here are some of the most popular trends in bridesmaid dresses for fall weddings 2010.

This dress named Ella is made of luxurious silk shantung fabric and is available in 32 striking colors.
