Bridesmaid Trends

At DressPlace we are seeing more and more brides wanting their bridesmaids in floaty chiffon bridesmaid dresses. This style of bridesmaid dress is perfect for every shape and size. As with wedding dress trends, lace has been a big hit with bridesmaids this year.With the arrival of the Jasmine Belsoire collection we have the perfect blend of lace with a silky chiffon skirt. These collections of bridesmaid’s dresses are popular with brides and bridesmaids but they do come at the top of our price range. Budget can be a problem, especially when you have a large bridal party. We aim to offer bridesmaid dresses to suit all budgets. Our MoriLee and Romantica collections offer classic, elegant designs, in a wide range of colours. When choosing colours it can depend on the fabric you choose, as some fabrics are not available in all the colours.

Customising your bridesmaid dress

At DressPlace we try to give you all the information about our bridesmaid dresses but it can be a lot to take in. Some designers are flexible with their dresses, offering changes such as zip to lace up back, different fabric and so on but it can come at an extra cost so it’s important to budget for this.

Maternity Bridesmaid dresses

Another worry for some bridesmaids is pregnancy. As the bridesmaid dresses are ordered 14 to 16 weeks in advance of the wedding, it’s difficult to know what size to order. The Jasmine Belsoire collection offers maternity bridesmaid dresses which are very useful, especially for the bridesmaid who falls pregnant a few months before the wedding. Some other designs from Veromia and MoriLee are very good for accommodating the bump too. If all else fails, our seamstresses can work wonders. With all our designers offering maxi dress styles, plus extra length, we can make sure that the pregnant bridesmaid won’t stand out, or have to have a completely different dress.

Altering your bridesmaid dress

Every bridesmaid will need some fittings, maybe a little taking in around the bodice and usually some off the length. At DressPlace we like to make the fittings a fun part of the experience too, so all your bridesmaids can come on the same day and then you can head off for a lovely lunch, or cocktail!
