Something for the Bridesmaids: Dresses with a Difference

The days of dressing like something out of Gone with the Wind are over for bridesmaids (although a popular trend up to the 1950s). Brides are starting to be a little more creative where the girlies, as I call them, are concerned. It's now popular to mix tones and styles to create more individual looks and there is a much wider selection of colours and materials than there used to be.

I love to take a gander round the pages of Frock Online when I'm looking for an outfit, and any of their dresses would work beautifully for bridesmaids, especially for an informal Spring/Summer wedding with bold prints, floaty cotton and chiffon and jewelled necklines. For Autumn/Winter...

   

you can bring in luxurious satins and velvets in deeper shades. This 50s style cocktail and Deco/Nouveau dress would look gorgeous at a snuggly winter wedding teamed with a wrap and some lace pattern tights.

          

I can't wait for the party season!
