Fresh Spring & Summer Looks for Bridesmaid Dresses

Yes, most of the country is enduring cold, wind, or rain right now. But believe or not, warmer weather is just around the corner. Here are some trends to look forward to if you're a bridesmaid-to-be, or a bride who wants to keep her girls happy.

After more than a decade of plain shifts and standard gowns, bridesmaids are dressing up again. The newest dresses are, well... dressier with elegant details and luxurious fabrics, like this one from David's Bridal.

Speaking of fabrics, lace is giving the silkier materials some competition this year. Whether in accents or covering the entire dress, lace brings an elegant, vintage feel to any silhouette.

Alright, you've been seeing an 80's revival of peplums everywhere recently. Women have been wearing them on everyday skirts and dresses for the last year, so it was just a matter of time before peplums ended up on bridesmaid dresses. They give cover to ladies who are concerned about body issues and even add a little edge to formal wear.

Maybe bridesmaids are trying to get some over-eager bridezillas to back off, because if you attend more than 3 weddings this year you are guaranteed to see some of them giving the "cold shoulder". You know what I mean - the "one shoulder in, one shoulder out" look. It's light and flirty, and perfect for Spring.

Remember when brides used to get all up-in-arms about an attendant or guest wearing white? Well that feeling seems to be fading, no pun intended. More than a few designers are rolling out dressy bridesmaid styles, in ivory and white.
So what do you think? Is this trend for the super-confident bride who can really bring it knows no one else will be mistaken for her?

I like having bridesmaids wear something fancy! I think it makes for better photos. But definitely no white or ivory dresses...it is my day after all!

These are some cute and trendy bridesmaids dresses. I especially like the look of bright colors that pop - like the hot pink one against the woods...so whimsical.
