10 things brides should know about one-shoulder bridesmaid dresses

(All images via Dessy Facebook page)

Today we're going to be talking goddess-style bridesmaid gowns - or to be a little more down to earth, let's call them one-shouldered bridesmaid dresses. Or maybe you'd describe them as asymmetric frocks.

Whatever. One thing is for sure though - they will make your maids look fabulous. Just look at these pictures of real bridesmaids wearing one-shouldered dresses at weddings to see.

  1. If your maids have athletic figures and broad shoulders then an asymmetric-styled frock will make them look very feminine
  2. Toned arms look fabulous in one-shoulder dresses
  3. See how a flattering ruched style would work for your bridesmaids
  4. One shoulder styles work well for girls with a larger bust as they offer more support than a strapless gown
  5. However they also work for girls with a smaller bust if they're ruched
  6. If the bride is going for a strapless gown, then a one-shoulder style creates a themed look (which will look wonderful in the photographs)
  7. Large chandelier earrings work beautifully with a one shoulder dress. You don't want to wear a necklace with this style - just put the jewellery focus on ears (and maybe add a bracelet or two)
  8. This is a style that won't date in a hurry. It's a classic - dating from Ancient Greece!
  9. Styles come in a range of fabrics - from a floaty chiffon through to a rich satin
  10. Shoulder details can be simple, or feature diamante for a bit of glitz or delicate fabric flowers
