Bridesmaids of today-

The world of bridesmaids fashion is changing…drastically. Remember the days you mentally cringed at the sight of your assigned dress? Majorly dreading the moment you step onto the isle, worrying of losing your stylistic credibility and possibly your dignity? Fear no more. The ‘maids of 2014 will be some of the most fashionable you have ever seen. And dare I say these dresses can be worn for occasions other than weddings?! Take me for example-I have two Lula Kate dresses I wear for wedding days-these gorgeous and fashion forward dresses give me an edge in the fashion world of wedding planners; not to mention I feel absolutely fabulous.

Today’s designers are working harder and more creatively than ever to make you look amazing. Who ever said that just because you’re not the bride means you don’t get to look gorgeous? Jim Hjelm recently released a line exclusively for Bella Bridesmaid. This collection includes lengthy chiffon gowns that can be mixed, matched, and made to fit perfectly for each special girl in a bridal party. And believe it or not, theses dresses are priced fantastically at $200.  Bella Bridesmaid is also now carrying Love Lane dresses. This chic line was created by Ivy & Aster and carries a variety of long and short chiffon creations, all flying of the racks for less than $200.


Don’t forgot to check out the convertible style dresses and those with illusion necklines! These gorgeous dresses are topping all others for the Fall of 2013. Get ready to see these hit the shelves of Bella Bridesmaid soon! And as for fabrics- anything and everything chiffon and tulle. Decadently and charmingly girly, while still showing a hint of drama and sass, all together creating the look of a drop-dead-gorgeous bridal party. Look in the collections from Monique Lhuiller for all things tulle.

And who said lace was an old thing? It’s coming back more popular than ever. Mixing vintage with modern, and dressed together with a little bling is the making of a breathtakingly beautiful rehearsal dinner dress. These springy cocktail numbers are also a perfect attire change for some late night dancing. You’ll find lace creations from designers like Jenny Yoo and Amsale.

Don’t be afraid to go bold in these times. Even with the softest of pastels, a little drama goes a long way. Have you thought of adding a touch of sparkle? Never have I seen sparkles on bridesmaids make such a wonderfully lasting impression. Times are changing ladies- for the better!
