Bold Bridal Party Patterns
I have a confession to make... ever since Monica got married on "Friends", I have had a secret obsession with patterned bridesmaid dresses. Several years later, I still love that look!
Who says bridesmaid dresses have to be solids? I personally love the look of a patterned bridal party. It brings a whimsical and fun element to the overall style, and it's perfect for those spring and summer Florida weddings! More and more bridal designers are coming out with patterned bridemaids dresses, including David's Bridal, Alfred Angelo, Dessy, and Mori Lee, among others. But another great thing about going the non-traditional route for bridesmaids dresses is that you can get them in non-traditional places. Consider looking at stores like BCBG, White House Black Market, J. Crew, and even your local department store. Not only can you find a great deal and possibly save your friends money, but you will also be giving them a unique look by making a statement with their style. They may even be able to wear the dresses again which is an added bonus.
I've posted some inspiration photos to help you make your bridesmaids a little bolder this wedding season. As you can see, a patterned bridesmaid dress can be either casual and cute or formal and elegant. There are so many options out there, so have fun shopping! I added a few photos for the guys as well because we want them to look good, too! :)
