Picking the right bridal gown can be tricky. It’s the most high-pressure, high-stakes wardrobe decision you’ll ever have to make, and you want to make sure you choose perfectly. You want to love it. Ideally, you’ll hear trumpets, and you want your friends and family to erupt in a round of happy tears. Your dress has to be as amazing as you are, and that makes picking it a momentous decision.
Oh, but when you choose your gown you can breathe a nice sigh of relief. You had to make the biggest clothing decision of your life, and you did it. You passed! Hooray! It’s smooth sailing from here on out.
That is, until you have to pick your bridesmaid dresses. If you thought choosing what you were going to wear was stressful, try choosing what other people are going to wear. You love your bridesmaids, and you want them to each feel comfortable, confident, and beautiful. You also have a wedding vision, and you want to stay on track.
Fortunately, we have all the latest trends in bridesmaid gowns, and we truly have something for everyone. Take a look at some of our newest bridesmaid gowns that fulfill all the hottest trends in bridal. They’ll make it easy to say yes to the dress, again.
There’s nothing quite like a good high-neck gown. A high-neck is flattering, sophisticated, and very chic. It provides coverage in just the right places, but still shows off great shoulders and delicate collar bones.
It was once super difficult to find bridesmaid gowns that had any kind of a strap, so it’s nice to see that high-neck gowns have become so popular. Pair them with a great chandelier earring for the wedding and a simple stud for an evening out. That’s right, these are totally gowns you can wear to another event.
For a long time chiffon bridesmaid gowns have reigned supreme at the altar. It makes sense, right? Chiffon is flowy, forgiving, easy to wear, and it comes in a great array of colors from the vibrant to the subdued. It also tends to be more affordable than some other fabrics, and it always photographs beautifully.
But, slowly and steadily bridesmaid designers have started to slip some crepe gowns into their lines, and I couldn’t be happier.
Crepe is sophisticated, elegant, and elevated. You’ll find that a lot of crepe gowns have structure, and tend to be more fitted than flowy. They look rich, they feel luxurious, and they’ll make your bridesmaids feel fancy.
You want to buy a gown based on the way the front looks, but a cool back is a nice bonus. It’s also something that brides and bridesmaids are paying more and more attention to these days. Criss-crossing straps, low backs, and lace appliques are all ways that designers are adding a little drama to the back of a gown.
Bridesmaid gowns like these also nicely compliment any detail on the back of your bridal gown, and they will help your photographer get some really stunning group shots from every angle.
Picking what your bridesmaids are going to wear is a lot of pressure, but with gowns like these, it doesn’t have to be. They’ll look good, they’ll feel good, and you’ll get hitched without a hitch.
