Rethinking Bridesmaid Dresses Part 1: Subtle Accents with Downeast

Modest bridesmaid dressesWhen I got married, the hardest part about planning the wedding was finding a bridesmaid dress.  I wanted something that would be flattering, look good in pictures, and fit within my budget.  I ended up using purple wrap dresses, and they worked fine, but in all honesty, they were a little boring.

Lately, I’ve seen some really fun trends that remix the way people see bridesmaid dresses.  In the past, it’s been traditional to have the dresses be exactly the same, with little or no embellishments, and one flat color.  Over the next 2 weeks, I’m going to show you 4 different ways to break these trends in very wearable ways.  I’ve partnered with bloggers, Whitney Johnson from WhitJXOXO, Karlee Andrews (the bride) from Madam Andrews, and photographer Anastasia Strate to show off these fun dresses.

The way the lace is placed running down the center of the dress has an overall slimming affect on the woman wearing it.  You really can’t go wrong with that!  It’s also available in a creamy gray, but I love the way this blue ties in perfectly with the bride’s floral crown.

  1. Love this! That dress is very cute. When I got married we did bridesmaid dresses from Target, they were fun and easy, and surprisingly inexpensive!

  2. I need this dress in a Marsala color for a December wedding!
