Trend Spotter: Bridesmaid style

You have found your dream dress and now it’s time to tackle those bridesmaid dresses. To ensure your leading ladies are dressed to a tee, guest blogger Aideen McCanny discusses the latest bridesmaid dress trends.

Tickled pink

Perfect for every season, pink bridesmaid dresses remain a popular choice with brides. From fuchsia pink to more subtle blush tones, pink comes in many variations! If your bridesmaids seem unsure, try a two tone dress with a lace bodice overlay in, for example white or cream to break up the flow of colour.

Contrasting dresses

For brides who dare to be a little different, mismatched bridesmaid dresses are a fun way to evoke your personality! Opt for subtle differences in colours or silhouettes to ensure your girls look consistent and part of your bridal party. The ideal trend to have a little fun with and perfect for satisfying fussy bridesmaids.

 

Mis matched

Pretty pastels

This year’s colour palette comes in a candy shop array of colours including bubblegum pink, powder blue, peppermint and parma violet. Perfect for spring and summertime weddings, these colours look great separately or in conjunction with each other.

 

Pastels

 

 Short and oh so sweet

Many brides with a penchant for vintage are drawn towards fit and flare tea length dresses for their big day. To complement your shorter length wedding dress perfectly, choose bridesmaid dresses in a similar length. These styles are perfect for shorter ladies who would feel swamped in the fabric of a floor length gown. Want to mix things up a bit? Let each girl rock an alternative neckline for the perfect twist on tradition.

Perfect patterns

Not for the faint hearted, patterned bridesmaid dresses are ideal for those seeking to make a bold statement! A popular choice for 2015, brides are choosing subtle patterns for their maids. Keep the rest of their look simple with subtle jewellery and low key bouquets.

 

Allure
