Want to help your friends feel fabulous on your wedding day? It’s totally possible to create your dream look for photo ops while still allowing your friends to wear dresses – or not – that will help them feel beautiful! In fact, there seem to be more stylish bridesmaids options than ever before. In fact, while it might be hard to believe, some could even be worn again. So, if you want to create your dream day and manage to keep your friends happy, consider these updated and gorgeous takes on bridesmaids attire.
Don’t Limit the Flowers to the Bouquets
Sure, every bridesmaid is prepared to carry a beautiful bouquet. But why not have your girls wear one too? Floral fabrics are a big trend for 2017. Best of all, they can be surprisingly easy to rock, provide a beautiful pop of color, and since they’re not your typical bridesmaid dress, many actually could be worn again!
Look for everything from tea-length dresses in printed chiffon for spring and summer weddings (particularly versatile after the wedding), to gorgeous floor length printed taffeta, perfect for fall and winter weddings (and later, Army balls or any other formal affair).
Jazz Things Up with Modern Sequins
Another way to create elegance is with sequined dresses in both short and long styles. Many brides are looking to add glitz, and sequins are a great way to do so.
Best of all, they can be found in a variety of shades, from silver to rose gold, and in a host of neutral shades like navy and black, as well. Avoid any dress shapes that are too skimpy, to keep the look polished and pretty.
Keep Cool with “Illusion” Fabrics
Another trend for brides and their wedding party involves illusion fabrics like tulle and netting. These can be used to add floor length embellishments to shorter gowns, and also to make deep v-neck silhouettes a bit more demure. Sheer details are also being used to create dramatic draping and silhouettes, without feeling too heavy.
Don’t Rule Out Separates, or Even Suits!
Another great trend for bridesmaids is separates and jumpsuits, both of which can be versatile choices your girls might actually want to wear again and again. Long skirts and cropped tops can work surprisingly well for some, while others prefer the comfort and versatility of a sleek jumpsuit in black, cream, or blush.
Basically, more and more brides are shirking tradition in favor of the silhouettes and styles they love! So don’t feel confined by any outdated wedding rules. Instead choose pieces you love, and that your friends will feel fabulous in!
