More Than a Dress: with Melanie Brown, Owner of Bella Bridesmaids

Jan 31, 2023 at 09:43 am by RMGadmin

What would your wedding day be like without your squad surrounding you? Each of your bridesmaids have a special place in your life and their dresses should be no different. Their attire truly is a huge part of completing the vision for your wedding and you surely would not want a remake of 27 Dresses. We have all worn dresses that might have matched the bride’s vision but didn’t exactly make our dreams come true. But, what if you could do both? 
With the busy wedding season upon us, I have curated three collections that go deeper than just matching styles and colors. Each collection shows examples of beautiful dresses that are on point with current wedding trends, and offer unique options for each bridesmaids personal style and shape. 

Black Tie

Black tie weddings are resurging, and we are here for it! After wearing our pajamas on Zoom calls, it feels glamorous to dress to the nines! For black tie weddings, the cohesion of styles is essential. Maybe all your ladies will wear the same dress. Or maybe you will let them choose a style while keeping everyone in the same color and fabric. Champagne or black are often chosen colors, although the color options are abundant! Structured fabrics such as satin, faille and crepe are perfect for these polished and sophisticated looks.
Dresses: Lazaro styles in cashmere crepe de chine, Jenny Yoo Aubrey in black knit crepe, Christina Wu Celebrations 22140 in black slipper satin, Watters Bianca in prosecco lucios charmeuse

English Garden Blue

Maybe it is Bridgerton…maybe it is the hope of spring, but whatever the motivation, blue florals are everywhere! That mix-and-match look can be achieved by combining multiple prints, sprinkled in with a few solids. Coordinating color undertones, and balancing the fabrics chosen, are important factors to consider when putting together this look.
Dresses:Jenny Yoo Eloise in whisper blue satin, Lulakate Jacqueline in Lily of the Valley print, Alfred Sung D826FP in Cottage Rose Larkspur, Watters Lina in Smokey Blue stretch crepe 

Gorgeous Greens

Shades of green are perennial favorites for bridesmaid dresses. It is a color that looks good on most skin tones and creates a beautiful backdrop for florals. Greens play well in a variety of venues indoors or outside! Bump it up to 2023 fashion levels by combining different shades and textures in your bridal party.
