Velvet has a wonderful sheen, depth of color and drapes beautifully.
And if you're planning a winter wedding or a wedding during the cooler months, it's the perfect fabric.
Dessy has created a number of bridesmaid dresses in velvet, in different styles, to suit different girls and different wedding moods.
For a formal wedding and top notch glamor, choose Style 2998 which has a diamante belt feature. Add some chandelier earrings and diamante detail on the shoes and you're dressed to perfection.
Of if you want to mix it up a bit, try Dessy's velvet skirt matched with a silk, strapless fitted camisole.
The Studio Design Collection Style 4506 featured above has a black velvet bodice with a flattering sweetheart neckline, which is matched with a floaty tulle skirt available in a variety of different colors from blush to burgundy.
Or what about separates? Choose the velvet top shown above, style Dessy T3032 and match with one of Dessy's other skirts. Choose a matte finish for the skirt in a heavier fabric or a lighter tulle for a summer wedding.
Or maybe T3031, which has a different cut.
Choose a velvet dress for your girls and they'll certainly want to wear it over and over again. A velvet dress is a timeless classic that every girl should have in her closet.
