Want a bridal party to brag about? With these smart strategies your nearest and dearest will make a big impression on your big day.
From berry and shell pinks to sunflower yellow, today's bridesmaid dresses are a far cry from the pale, pasty numbers girls got stuck wearing 30 years ago. Think fresh clean hues and saucy, soft finishes for a sophisticated bridal party entrance full of modern elegance.
Shape it up
A bridesmaid dress with a fitted V-neck bodice and a bell skirt offers an easy, elegant option that flatters most figures. Choose silk-shantung fabrics in fresh, candy-colored shades. These classic options wear beautifully and are filled with garden-party glamour.
This season three-button, notched-lapel jackets give your groom and his attendants a huge dose of Hollywood glam. Opt for shades of charcoal, dark grey or black and coordinate with dark, grey-striped ties.
Silver accents add a dose of modern drama to your bridal party. Choose sweet little clutch bags, bracelets, rings or hair bands that shimmer with style.
