Spring is finally upon us! And with the beautiful blooms come another blossoming – the beginning of wedding season! With countless couples ready to walk down the aisle in the next few months, and exchange wedding rings, we can’t get weddings off the brain! So TGIWW (Wedding Wednesday!) And one of our favorite things to daydream about is bridal fashion. Beyond the gorgeous wedding gowns every bride wows us with, we just love seeing the hottest bridesmaids trends evolve each year. After all, once you’re engaged, you’re pumped to start dress shopping. And once you’ve proposed to your bridesmaids, odds are they’re going to be excited about shopping for their own looks! And for a spring wedding, there’s nothing we love more than plenty of flowers, everywhere, including on the bridesmaids dresses. Just imagine your ladies in soft, watercolor florals that match your wedding color palette. It’s fresh, it’s feminine, and it’s oh-so gorgeous. Best of all, it doesn’t scream “bridesmaid dress” so yes, your ‘maids can wear them again for spring seasons to come (it’s not like florals as a spring trend are going anywhere.) Check out a few of our favorites!
First up is the beautiful long chiffon sweetheart dress in a sketched bold watercolor. It’s a traditional bridesmaid silhouette, but the artsy print makes it fresh and modern.
This gorgeous one shoulder bridesmaid dress is stunning in a cool palette by Donna Morgan. Love the airy folds of the chiffon skirt and how sweet it would be at a garden wedding.
It’s no secret that RTR is one of our favorite bridesmaid dress sources. So many bridesmaids dresses have inflated price tags (welcome to wedding planning) and are just manmade materials with maybe a natural fiber silk overlay (if you’re lucky.) Your gals can shell out close to $400 for quality bridesmaids dresses, so if you – or they – like the luxe look for less, Rent The Runway lets them have a couture look for a fraction of the price.
Finally, this beautiful blush, coral and sherbert colored short bridesmaids dress is perfect for both spring and summer. A shirred chiffon bodice is universally flattering, as is the always popular sweetheart neckline.
