BRIDESMAID GUIDE: The Best Fall 2014 Bridesmaid Dresses

BRIDESMAID GUIDE: The Best Fall 2014 Bridesmaid Dresses

It seems almost impossible that summertime is coming to an inevitable close. (Really, how is that possible?) But with our sunny long days becoming shorter and cooler, there is a silver lining. Fall 2014 bridesmaid fashion is out and it's GOOD. Reallllll good. It's hard to sift through all of the glamour to pick just a few favorites, but we've pulled out a few styles below that are modern, feminine and super chic!

The neckline of this gown is all at once modern and timeless. A demure keyhole shows a sliver of skin and flattering front seaming makes for a bust that nips at the waist then joins a flowing chiffon skirt, for a soft finish.

After Six style 6705

After Six style 6705 in Bordeaux, Larkspur and Frost

This dress is perfect for a bride that's looking for something that's a bit special with a bit of sparkle. A modified halter neckline sings with a small embellished brooch and draped bodice. Fitted to the natural waist, the dress then flows into a full skirt. Beautiful with just a touch of bling.

Dessy Collection style 2917

Dessy Collection style 2917 in Blush, Taupe and Passion

A beautiful high neck is adorned with dainty flower buttons at the shoulder, but he real beauty of this dress lies in the open back. Pleated details criss-cross to expose a small, tasteful openening. A waistband separates bodice from full skirt for a classic, high-neck look from the front.

Brides are stepping away from tradition when it comes to matching color and styles for the bridal party these days. It is no longer necessary to have just one color and style. While traditional matching bridesmaids and groomsmen are still a beautiful sight, brides are making a bold statement to make their wedding even more memorable.

For their bridal parties, brides are mixing color palettes – from subtle changes in hues to adventurous pairings. You can have fun with the color and style choices you make for the bridal party.

When you aren't matching styles, you are making it possible for each of your bridesmaids to wear a dress that best suits their body type. This gives the bridal party an overall unique look.

The best example of this is the Twist Wrap bridesmaid dress. The dress is versatile and literally fits every body type! Each of your girls can have a different look and the dress comes in a variety of colors that will certainly make your girls stand out at your wedding.

Mismatching colors can also play a part in other aspects of your wedding. For example, you can mismatch flowers, invitations, favor tags, table settings, and more. Mixing colors will certainly make a statement at your wedding.

If you are deciding not to match color and style, here are a few things to consider:

Have one color and center other colors around it for the bridesmaid dresses. You may also pick shades of the same base colors and mix it that way. Are you uncertain of colors, materials and textures? Check out the various swatches and trims available on Dessy!

There are many ways to mix and match your bridesmaid dresses. You can have the same dress in different lengths, different dresses by the same designer, different colors, lengths and textures; you can have the same dresses but different accessories and shoes. You can all have different dresses and different shoes. The options are endless!

If you are deciding to go the mismatching route, there are still ways to have a uniform look. You can match accessories, shoes, and jewelry. For example, the Faceted Resin Necklace with Rhinestone Accents by Dessy would make a great uniform piece for your bridesmaids that will tie the whole look together.

Should You Have Dark Colored Bridesmaid Dresses at Your Spring Wedding?

Should You Have Dark Colored Bridesmaid Dresses at Your Spring Wedding?

The immediate answer is you can do whatever you want! It's your wedding, after all. However during the spring, brides tend to lean towards pastels or just brighter life-like colors.

Dark colors are traditionally reserved for fall and winter weddings. But these days it seems that brides are breaking away from tradition and doing whatever color they choose for their wedding.

A great way to have dark dresses but still incorporate spring if you are worried about the colors being too dark is by incorporating light flowers or similar lighter colors that are similar to the dark color of your choice.

One great example of a dark bridesmaid dress is the Lela Rose Style LR198, which is a cocktail sleeveless dress gazar dress with pleated detail and scoop neck.

We recommend that you go dark with your dress colors if you lean towards a night wedding. Dark colors perfect for a wedding after dark.

Another great example for a dark dress this spring, is the Alfred Sung Style D611, which is a full length v-neck dupioni dress with inset waistband and inverted pleat ing the front and back skirt. There are even pockets at the side of the skirt! A dress with pockets is always a plus!

Also if you are considering a dark color for your bridesmaid dresses, you will want to take fabrics into serious consideration. Darker colors like black for example may not fit for the weather temperatures.

Keep in mind you will want to find colors dark or otherwise that look best on all your bridesmaids. While you want to pick colors you like, you will want to consider your bridesmaids' skin tones. Not all dark colors look good on every skin tone, so be conscious of that.

Some flattering dark colors are deep purples, black (that's universal) deep reds, dark navy are all great options for dark colors.
