White Bridesmaid Epidemic

white bridesmaidsYesterday’s ultimate bride exasperater, today’s biggest trend: white is not exclusive to the only lady of the night anymore. Thanks to Pippa and Cara (starting to sound like a children novel) women all around the world are starting to come to terms with the idea of sharing the holy white with the most loved ones: bridesmaids.

For my wedding, the dress code for my bridesmaids were neutral tones – to some of them that meant silver and some, white. I thought I’d be upset but actually I wasn’t, afterall no one could confuse me with her. I WAS THE ONE WITH THE VEIL!

The sentiment makes more sense if you have a sister that can be your maid of honor (or a best friend that is like your sister) so that she can complete your look – instead of 15 ladies walking around in gorgeous white gowns. The key is to keep it low key: 1) no overdone lace, ruffle or embellishments, 2) preferably short dresses and even if it’s long absolutely no tails, 3) depending on the wedding theme; bohemian looks or simple chiffon layers are preferable, 4) no exaggerated cleavage and I’m repeating 5) no veil, no tiara – nothing but floral crowns!

    I think this is a very forward, modern moving trend. But like you said, you said, there are guidelines to follow to not upstages the bride. We have chosen purple(or lavender) and silver, with purple being the dominant color.
