Sugary springtime shades are going to be every girl’s candy crush this spring/summer season, so keep your maids sweet in pretty pastel dresses. Go for delicate lighter than light blue, pink, green or yellow or better still, mismatch your maids in a pale rainbow selection.
The floral bridesmaid dress trend was in full bloom last year and this is one style that’s still growing, with bold petal prints cropping up everywhere across the High Street.
Sow a little of this blossoming trend into your wedding day theme with floral bridesmaid dresses. Go for vintage-inspired tea dresses, mismatch flower prints with complimentary hues or add small subtle florals.
Move over maxi’s – the length of your maid’s hem should be midi all the way this season! The SS14 catwalks were knee-deep in midi skirts and dresses, so if you want your maids to be of the moment and the epitome of grownup glamour, give midi a try.
Gone are the days as having to have matchy-matchy maids. Matching or mismatched, the options are now more open when it comes to looking for your besties big day outfits.
Any of the other trends or any colour scheme you decide to go for, for your bridesmaid dresses can be mismatched. A combination of colours, a few different floral prints or a selection of skirt lengths can all work well together whilst giving each of your bridesmaid a slightly different look of their own.
