We saw dozens of bridesmaid dresses during New York Bridal Market, but there were a few trends that definitely emerged. Black or dark-colored lace bridesmaid dresses were featured in most of the collections that we saw, and we must say, we love the look. It’s feminine and flirty, but still feels quite formal – and even a bit edgy. Tell us in in the comments: Would you want your ‘maids to sport this look?

Black Bridesmaid Dresses: Are You a Fan?

Posted by Kim on Jun 11, 2012

Searching for bridesmaid dresses for your nearest and dearest? Make sure the dresses you choose can be worn again. One of the best ways to do this is by choosing a style in a neutral color, like navy, champagne, and of course, black. One can never have too many black dresses – they look great on almost everyone and can be dressed up or down in a variety of ways (some of these bridesmaid styles can even be worn to work with a blazer and pumps!).

Dresses for My Girls

Posted by bridalbuds on Jun 25, 2009

Last night was the much anticipated Bridesmaid dress appointment for my girls. We had a bit of a setback getting to this point, but the end result has turned out great!

Originally a friend of mine, who works for a wedding gown manufacturer, offered to make my bridesmaid dresses. It would have been her present to me along with a great addition to her portfolio. I had taken the girls last winter to get their measurements done and to discuss their personalized designs with my friend. I was so thrilled that the girls would be getting a custom dress that not only fit their bodies perfectly but also fit their style so that they would be completely comfortable in what they were wearing.

During this process, my friend who was going to make the dresses became pregnant and about a month ago told me that it would be too hard for her to complete them. Since nothing had been started I quickly had to move to Plan B: visit our local bridal shop.
