31 May 2019
SilkFred shares its top picks for bridesmaids' dresses and demonstrates that you don't have to spend a fortune to look fabulous
With many different colours, styles and shapes to choose from, dressing your bridal squad in gowns that make them look and feel great can be likened to an impossible mission. Don’t worry – it doesn't have to be as hard as you think.
If you’re getting married this summer and aren’t sure where to start, here are three fabulous dresses, sure to impress even the fussiest of bridesmaids:
For the casual summer wedding...
Looking for bridesmaids' dresses to suit a low key and casual summer wedding? Why not think outside the box and look to wedding guest dresses instead? Not only will these offer a more affordable option, they also tend to be made from lightweight and breathable fabrics, making them easier to wear when it’s hot outside.
We love this simple floor-length dress from SilkFred. The feminine floral pattern of the beading is perfect for a summer wedding, while the blush pink base colour will look flattering on almost any skin tone. The chiffon fabric is light and easy to wear, and it also won’t crease, meaning that your bridesmaids will look as fresh and beautiful at the end of the day as they did at the start.
Team with simple nude heels and a bouquet of wildflowers for a low key and effortless look that is perfect for a casual summer wedding, whether you’re tying the knot in the UK or abroad.
For the traditional wedding...
Are you hosting a traditional summer wedding with cocktails on the lawn, a five-course sit-down dinner, and a cast of a thousand bridesmaids? Then floor-length bridesmaids' dresses in dramatic colours are the perfect choice for you.
Blue is the most sought after colour of the summer and a huge trend for 2019 weddings. Why not pick simple blue dresses with minimalist, structural shapes such as this one, and then let your accessories do all the talking? This dress will suit bridesmaids of all shapes and sizes.
Elevate the look with metallic shoes, matching clutch bags and dramatic headbands featuring pearls, beads and diamantes. Sure to please even the most fussy of bridesmaids.
For the romantic wedding...
Are you hosting a wedding fit for a princess? Is Cinderella's wedding the inspiration for your romantic nuptials? Then you’ll need dreamy and ethereal bridesmaids' dresses to fit the romantic theme.
We love this embellished maxi dress in soft blush pink. The chiffon overlay on the skirt adds a touch of femininity and drama, while the beautiful beading is designed to attract attention for all the right reasons. With beading this beautiful, you should avoid wearing jewellery and let the details on the dress do all the talking instead. Pair with an oversized crown of flowers and co-ordinating floral bouquet to amp up the romance and ensure your bridesmaids look like princesses in their own right.
