Bridesmaids in the past had so few options when it came to their dresses that it has become a long standing joke. The colors were perfect for a chair covering but never quite right for a gown. The most they could hope for was that the bride would not add a huge bow on the backside.

Today, popular bridesmaid dresses are anything from chic and elegant to short and sassy. They are lovely dresses that the bridesmaids would not hesitate wearing again. Designers and vendors have stressed the importance of the beautiful bridesmaids that compliment the bride and do not take away from her splendor.

Here are a few of the latest trends that are gracing wedding chapels across the globe:

Shoulders

Bridesmaids want to get away from the puffy, little girl sleeves. There are very few dresses that carry that style well, and the age of the bridesmaid never seems right for the look. Strapless is very popular with brides and many bridesmaids are choosing dresses to match. But a bridesmaid is actually there for a job. She will be on her feet for hours. She will go get things that the bride needs. She will stoop, bend, squat, and carry. The strapless dress is lovely, but a bit much for the busy bridesmaid. Instead, the modern bridesmaid gown is leaning toward a one strap gown or a dress with ultra-chic cap sleeves. These are sexy and offer some support.

Note: A plunging back-line is acceptable, but again, due to the duties of the bridesmaid, it should not be so low that they can not move freely to attend the bride.

Layers

The layered dress is the hottest dress on the runway. A beautiful tiered skirt that flutters in the wind or a floor-length dress with layers of sheer fabric is beautiful for the formal wedding. If you are a bride that likes classic without extra romantic fluff, opt for a pleated dress. You get the same stunning elegance but in an understated gown.

Fabric

This year a cotton lace dress that is short, or to the floor is popular. If you are in need of tea-length dresses (to just below the knee or to the calf) use tulle or chiffon material. This gives you a semi-formal look that is elegant but can be blended in with a less formal setting.

Two-piece dresses are also very pretty when you combine a cotton lace top with a high-waisted skirt. You can use one style skirt for the wedding and change to nice pants or a short skirt for the reception or after party.

Shoes

Strappy, sexy heels are always a winner for the wedding, but be careful not to get heels that are too high. If the bridesmaid has to walk outside, dance for hours, or stand for extra pictures, they may look in pain in your wedding photos. Instead, go with a more comfortable heel that is a bit lower.

The current trend is for the bridesmaids to wear the shoes of their choice with-in a style and color range. The extra bit of personality is fun and enhances the wedding. As long as they stay in the range of the brides instructions they can choose a shoe they love.

If the bridesmaids are given some freedom in the gown choices (maybe they are wearing different hues of the same color or choosing the sleeve or neckline they like in the same dress) the opposite is true. Those bridesmaids should all wear the same shoe in the same color. It is the reverse effect and has the same results.

When a bride walks down the aisle after her line of stylish and lovely bridesmaids, her beauty will be magnified. Her bridal party is put together and projects her modern charm and grace.

Chic Garden Wedding: Floral Bridesmaids Dresses & A Vintage Bus

It may well be a frosty/grey/rainy November morning but today on Bridal Musings we’re headed back to the sweet, summer’s day when Rowena and Nick said ‘I do’.

And why not eh? We could all benefit from a little more sunshine, love and laughter in our lives!

Theirs was a timeless, classic English garden wedding complete with bunting, lawn games and an old fashioned double decker bus for transport. Rowena was lovely in lace, Nick dapper in navy blue and the bridesmaids, well, just wait till you see their floaty, floral Ted Baker dresses.

Other things to watch out for include the almost-too-pretty-to-eat ruffled cake by Cakes and Crumbles, Nick’s thoughtful gift and a rogue cat!

Lisa Dawn Photography captured Rowena and Nick’s beautiful, timeless wedding to perfection.

From The Couple…

We had a fairly formal ceremony at the Great Hall in Winchester, followed by prosecco and canapés. Our guests were transported to the reception by old fashioned double decker bus. We had a relaxed, rustic, fete style garden/marquee reception and the speeches took place outside prior to sitting for the wedding breakfast.*

The Flowers

Bouquet: Peonies, Button holes: Carnations, Centrepieces: Baby’s Breath

The Wedding Music

Processional: Air on G played by The Bossard Quartet

First dance: ‘Summercat’ by Billie the Vision and the Dancers, played by The Lionels, who learned it especially.

Congratulations Nick and Rowena!

Anyone else need one of those floral dresses in their closet stat? And did you spot the cat?!

* Having the speeches before dinner is a genius idea – then everyone giving speeches can relax and enjoy the evening.

Host a 1920s glamour wedding with Bari Jay dresses!

Since the new Great Gatsby trailer came out a few weeks ago, I’ve been swooning over just about everything in it: the actors, the music, and of course, the fashion. Wouldn’t a 1920s glamour wedding just be so chic? From a 1920s wedding dress and a fabulous fascinator for the bride to vintage 1920s style dresses for the bridesmaids, it could be quite an unforgettable affair!

Some of the best vintage 1920s style dresses are found within our collection of Bari Jay dresses. I’ve picked out a few styles that would be perfect for the modern, vintage-inspired bride. Find the style of your dreams at the Wedding Shoppe!>>

What to look for in a 1920s-inspired Bari Jay bridesmaid dress

This dress’ layered effect is totally reminiscent of flapper-style fringe. And the best part? The skirt can be removed to convert to a knee length option! Don’t you just love a good twofer? The 1920s brought about many changes in the world of fashion. The hourglass shape that had previously been so popular was slowly giving way to a new ideal: the boy-shaped body. A flat chest and slim hips were in, and women even went so far as to bandage their bustlines in order to fit into the new straight, shapeless shift dresses.

Since I’m sure you don’t want to look like you wandered out of a time capsule, you’ll want to keep a couple of things in mind when considering how to mesh vintage 1920s style dresses with a modern aesthetic: Necklines and hemlines: Look for scoop- and v-necks with simple tank-style straps. Mid-length hemlines with embellishments like beading, sequins, pleats, or other texture are also a must. Accessories: Cloche hats were huge in the 1920s, as were headbands bedecked with beads, and art-deco-inspired jewelry. And the furs—oh, the furs! Hit your favorite vintage shop for a stole to wear.

Inspired by: A 1920s wedding dress.

Even though I’ve focused on vintage 1920s style dresses for the bridesmaids, I haven’t forgotten about our brides! There are some fantastic designers with a noticeable Gatsby-flair to their creations. (Take this bride, for example.) If you’re looking for a 1920s wedding dress style with modern construction San Patrick bridal gowns are a great place to start! What do you think? Would you host a 1920s-inspired wedding?
