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…..

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….

Pleats can be super cute on a short dress or elegant on a maxi…..
