Five of the Most Beautiful Bridesmaid Trends for 2014
Hello lovelies! We’re starting the week with a post packed full of pretty. Having looked at Wedding, Bridal and Groom‘s trends for 2014 I thought it was well past time attention was turned to your sisters, cousins and besties; the most important women at a wedding (after you and your Mom of course) your maids! Gone are the days when being asked to be a bridesmaid was met with tears of joy mixed with more than a little trepidation (prompting nightmares of silk taffeta meringues in shades of puce) And no longer are bridesmaid dresses being relegated to the back of the wardrobe. Today’s five beautiful bridesmaid trends will leave your gals loving their gowns and longing to wear them again…..
Bold, retro, pastel or pretty, it seems you can’t go wrong if you go floral right now. If you’re worried about the pattern being overpowering though, go for mismatched prints or choose floral for just 1 or 2 of your maids, with the others in complimentary solid coloured dresses. And there are floral dresses aplenty at the moment so it won’t be hard to find a pattern you and your maids love, here are just a few of my faves….

Giselle Dress – Ghost
It has been all about texture for a while now, in wedding dresses, cakes and decor so the only surprise is that pleats have taken so long to work their way into a trend for bridesmaids (the ever elegant DoC is a champion of this look). Pleats can be super cute on a short dress or elegant on a maxi…..

Mint is everywhere this Spring and I for one love its pretty cool shades! With lots of hues and tones, it is the perfect shade for any season and an ideal colour for mismatching. With so many lovely dresses in this precious pastel, it would be impossible for your maids not to find a dress in it you and they love…..
Mint Sylvia Dress ~ Ghost
I may well have saved my favourite bridesmaid look to last. This was a huge trend for brides in 2013 and now it is looking like being just as big for bridesmaids. And why not, because it is quite simply the prettiest detail – and makes for an extra cute photo!

So, which look is your favourite? Are you considering one (or more! they’ll look so pretty together – pleats in mint, or floral with a beautiful back) for your maids?
