Bridesmaids aren’t just the people who plan your bachelorette party and help you put on your wedding dress. They’re the women who have stood by you in good times and bad, through every broken heart and every new love. They’ve done your hair (and held it back) and cheered you on through every stage of your life. It probably feels absolutely right to say “I do” surrounded by these phenomenal women.
Show your bridesmaids how much they mean to you by finding exciting and new outfits that will set them apart at your wedding. Check out these fabulous bridesmaid outfit ideas to help your ladies shine!
Mix up the stale solid-colors of typical bridesmaid outfits with floral patterned fabric. After all, every wedding has flowers—they’re on the reception tables, on the altar, and even in your hands as you walk down the aisle. That’s probably because flowers symbolize beauty and new beginnings. With floral dresses, you can symbolically tell your bridesmaids how beautiful they are to you, and that you wouldn’t want this new beginning without their love and support.
Try an off-the-shoulder dress to let your bridesmaids blossom on your special day. Which you can find on lulalu.com.
Bridesmaid Outfit Tip: Elevate the floral patterns of your bridesmaid dresses with, what else, real flowers! Work with your florist to see if you can recreate the colors, flowers, and arrangements of the bridesmaid dresses into bouquets, hair accents, or crowns.
