Hello, Bridesmaids!December 28th, 2011
It’s no secret that bridal party trends have evolved and modern brides are taking a new approach to styling their bridal party. The result? Bridesmaids get noticed. Recently, bridesmaids have even made news headlines. Pippa wore a gorgeous, yet unexpected white gown to complement her sister. And voila: a new trend was born!

Celebrities often have the luxury of working with stylists and designers to create unique and picturesque bridal party styles. Molly Sims’ bridal party exuded modern sophistication in their one-of-a kind soft, neutral gowns. Miranda Lambert’s bridesmaids were picture-perfect in their customized whimsical short floral dresses, apropos for her outdoor wedding. In the first movie, the Sex and The City girls each wore dramatically different gowns to Carrie’s wedding. The dresses celebrated their individual personalities, flattered their figures and represented the unique role they will always play in Carrie’s life.
But you don’t have to be a celebrity or ask your friends to break the bank to create your own original bridal style. Bridal resources like David’s Bridal have truly responded to the modern bride, offering her an endless array of sophisticated styles in a wide range of fabrics. Many dresses are available in 44 different colors and in a variety of silhouettes, making every bridesmaids feel special and beautiful on your Big Day.
For my 2009 wedding, my bridesmaids wore a silhouette that flattered all of their figures: an A-line ball gown with a sweetheart neckline and a ruched, empire waist line. My matron of honor added a pretty sleeve treatment to hers, which was not only flattering, but made her stand out in my bridal party, which is exactly what I wanted.
