Want to make your bridesmaids feel like princesses? Choose a dress they love! These four trends will help you find a dress that makes them feel like royalty.

Mismatched ‘Maids

More and more brides are giving their bridesmaids a color and letting them choose their own dress. This allows each girl to pick the dress in which she feels most beautiful – and they’ll thank you for it! To ensure that all the dresses match, give each a swatch of fabric in the color you want so she can take it with her when she shops. You can also give guidelines if you want dresses with a certain neckline, length, or fabric.

Go Asymmetric

One-shoulder dresses have been popular for the last couple of seasons, and this year is no different! An asymmetric neckline is a stylish alternative to strapless dresses.

Dramatic Color

If you want your bridesmaids to stand out, choose dresses in a bold, dramatic color. Popular colors this fall include gunmetal gray (which goes with just about anything), rich jewel tones, and bright coral pink.

Rising Hemlines

Floor-length gowns have been the standard for bridesmaids for years. For a fun, flirty bridal party, choose shorter dresses! The trendiest lengths in bridesmaid dresses are tea length and mini. Shorter dresses give your bridal party a fun, retro vibe.
