The Prettiest Bridesmaid Look for Summer

Good morning lovelies! Whilst my days are getting shorter and colder here, and I am spending more and more of my time dreaming of warmer climes and white beaches (you may have noticed CVB’s Honeymoon Pinterest board being filled with images much like this one) I know many of you are looking forward to the long hazy days of summer ahead. There are so many pretty summer fashion trends filtering through this year, with many making their way into the wedding industry for brides and bridesmaids alike; but one in particular has caught my eye!…..

Bold and bright, fresh, flirty and fun, super cute and have I mentioned stylish? Stripes make the PERFECT look for Summer (or Spring) bridesmaids!

Want to see what I mean? Here are 5 of the prettiest ways to dress your bridesmaids in stripes for 2014…..

Colour block top and striped skirts are so fun and super flattering! A little less in your face than a dress and a great way to incorporate a third or 4th colour into your palette…..
