Sunday August 4 2013.


Hope you’ve all been having a wonderful week, any exciting news to report?  I have been busy working with new clients, which needless to say is always exciting and pondering the question – Can you wear black to a wedding?  As a bridesmaid?  Or even as a bride?  My views, along with a number of industry experts, are featured on Little Black Dress here what’s your view?

But let’s get down to the love this Sunday, if you are struggling with your ladies outfits then hopefully these bridesmaid style ideas will inspire you.

bridesmaid style ideas


One dress, fifteen ways to wear it so there is bound to be a look to suit every one of your girls.  If you are keen to stick to a particular colour theme, then this is the dress you need.  The matching fabric, colour and cut will ensure a cohesive look whilst allowing each bridesmaid to style it in a way to flatter their shape.

Watch demos, view the wealth of colours available and shop the different styles –


Planning vintage Mad Men style nuptials then you need your bridesmaids to look the part.  I love these sugar coloured, full skirt dresses from Not Another Boring Bridesmaid Dress (NABBD for short).

If you haven’t heard of it NABBD is a new UK online shop aimed exclusively at bridesmaids, which offers one of the widest selections of exclusive dresses designed to fit and flatter all shapes, sizes and budgets.

If you’re having a destination wedding somewhere hot, shorter and strapless styles will be ideal for your bridesmaids.  I really like this rose colour dress from Debut for Debenhams which would fit beautifully in a tropical setting.  The grecian style gathering across the bust, screams beach wedding to me.

Shop the entire collection of bridesmaid dresses –


If you’re questioning whether to spend a lot of money on a dress your girls might never wear again, why not consider hiring their gowns?  This little black swing dress with embellished neckline by Rock-A-Bye Rosie would look great for a chic city wedding.  There are so many designer gowns to choose from and you won’t have to stress about scheduling shopping trips either.

Be prepared for lots of gorgeous dresses when you head to –


One final dress in this bridesmaid style ideas post and it is a Jenny Packham number, before you look away it’s actually the exclusive high street range for Debenhams *read affordable*.  Sheer chiffon with an asymmetric drape across the bust, gunmetal embellished detail on the strap and diamante, beading and stud detail empire line – swoon!  If I were a bridesmaid I’d be pretty pleased with this.
