Popular Dress Style for the Bridesmaids

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Bridesmaids are important and honorable guests at the wedding, so when planning the feast, one should take care of bridesmaids’ dresses style.

It would be nice to ask the other guests’ advice and listen to their ideas on bridesmaids’ dress style choice, as well as to know in advance what other guests are going to wear. Bride should be undoubtedly the most attractive and elegant person at the wedding. The maids should decorate her just like flowers the whole wedding day, so one should discuss in advance all possible bridesmaids’ attires. It will look magnificent if all maids wear similar style dresses.

Long floor-length dresses. This is a perfect and the most appropriate finery for the bridesmaids. The best tones for such dresses are: blue, pink, yellow, light green, violet, silver shades, lavender and fuchsia colors. A dress should be moderately decorated with rhinestones, tinsel and flowers, but one should be very attentive here so as not to let the gloss of the bridesmaids’ dress overshadow the bride. Modest purple bridesmaid dresses are very popular in 2015.

Dresses with print. Such dresses look very unusual and will perfectly fit the atmosphere of a thematic wedding: a wedding in hipsters’ style, 1980s feast, or any youth party is impossible without some bright colors. A flower print, geometrical figures, zigzags, polka dots preferred by many ladies – there is a great variety of options for such dresses.

A cocktail dress with decorative elements is another great option for an evening dress for the wedding. It can have a midi length or reach the mid-thigh. Don’t combine the short cocktail dresses with high platform shoes as it looks inappropriate. A finery should have several decorative elements such as scattering of rhinestones as a necklace, or a cascade of bead-buttons.

Asymmetrical and lace dress models. For modern style feast dresses with one shoulder will fit well: such neckline looks great with midi length dresses as well as with foot length evening gowns. Affordable bridesmaids dresses with a lace are extremely elegant and are a perfect match for the wedding in a Fairytale, Romantic age, or Vintage styles.

Bridesmaids in similar dresses look fashionable, beautiful, stylish and solemn. But no matter what ideas you have regarding their attires, you should not put your girls in some strict conditions. You should necessarily consult them and take into consideration all their desires and preferences which will help your friends feel individual and feminine at your wedding and at the same time effectively support the idea of the entire wedding decoration.
