Shopping for bridesmaid dresses is one of the most exciting parts of wedding planning, second only to choosing your own wedding dress. It’s a wonderful opportunity to get your closest friends and family members together to discuss your special day and ensure they look and feel fantastic. But what kind of dresses should you choose? Don’t worry, we’re here to help!
Embellished gowns are one of this season’s hottest trends and perfect as bridesmaid dresses or an evening gown for one of your pre-wedding looks.
Here are 3 of our favourite embellished dresses, designed to suit even the most discerning of bridesmaids:
If you’re looking for a feminine and ethereal bridesmaid gown that offers understated style, this nude hand embellished dress is the perfect choice. The style of the top taps into this season’s nineties revival trend perfectly, whilst the layered chiffon skirt creates a romantic feel.
The beading is subtle and understated, but still makes a big impact. Added to the gown in vertical stripes, the beads draw the eye down the body, ensuring that your bridesmaids look longer and leaner, whilst the extra beads at the waist create a belt effect, instantly trimming the waist and drawing attention to the torso. This is a dress that is sure to impress.
Featuring gradient sequins that sparkle with every movement, this bridesmaid dress has been designed to attract attention for all the right reasons. The eye-catching sequin pattern leads to a feminine and free-flowing chiffon skirt which allows for movement and will softly drape across the body. This is a dress that has been designed for dancing!
The rich golden shade of the sequins will look great worn against every skin tone, whilst the champagne of the skirt would perfectly flatter a coordinating champagne wedding dress. This is a dress that wouldn’t look out of place at a celebrity wedding. It is truly Instagram-worthy, making it the ideal choice for bridesmaids who like to share their lives of social media.
This dress needs little accessorising. Simply add a pair of minimalist earrings and a small bouquet to let the embellishment do all the talking.
This vintage-inspired bridesmaid’s dress combines the practicality of a figure-flattering a-line style with the drama and glamour of the 1920s. Featuring dark beads in a classic art deco pattern, this dress will make your bridesmaids look like they’ve just stepped out of The Great Gatsby. These beads aren’t just for decoration though: their clever placement creates the appearance of hourglass curves and draws the eye down the body. This will create an overall longer and leaner silhouette.
From a practical point of view, the cut of this dress will skim over curves, making it suitable for bridesmaids of all shapes and sizes, whilst the thicker straps mean that your bridesmaids will be able to wear supportive underwear.
