Last week we thoughtfully weighed the pros and cons of a Bebe bridal line, contemplating whether the audacious new step might not be all that bad.
This week we're done conjecturing and onto judging: the first looks have arrived.
With some preview photos on InStyle.com and a few more on Brides.com, we can soundly say that Bebe Bridal isn't half bad. It's not all good, as the budget is small and the styles designed for mass appeal -- hence the ever popular mermaid hem and strapless bodice.
But these aren't heinous dresses. We see no garish sequins nor zebra print, nor do any of the gowns resemble bandage dresses as we feared. They're tasteful, basic and affordable: prices will range from $950 to $2,500 once the line hits US stores.
The dresses wouldn't crack our "Best of 2011" list, but we wouldn't totally write off Bebe's new venture into Wedding Land. Check out the looks below -- what do you think?
