Bridesmaid Dresses Perfect for Your Summer Wedding
By Annamarya Scaccia
Big arm poofs, floor length chunky skirts, oversized shoulder pads – these are just some of the hideous staples of the awful bridesmaid dresses of yore. But that’s what they’re becoming – things of the past.
More and more brides are choosing fashion over undivided attention (well, not completely, of course). While the bridesmaid dress shouldn’t outshine the gorgeous garb of the bride, the garment should still be beautiful and flattering. The key to achieving this is simple – pick out a dress that complements the venue’s décor, theme and location of the wedding, and your bridesmaid’s overall personal style.
If you’re a bride-to-be and your wedding day is taking place over the summer, you will have tons of hip dresses to choose from. These dresses not only will make your entire bridal party look gorgeous, but also make them proud to be a part of the ceremony. Check out the list below for some fresh ideas.
