Wedding Wednesday: Bridesmaid Dresses

Happy Wedding Wednesday! :)

Almost every wedding movie features bridesmaids complaining about hideous bridesmaid dresses. But from wedding photos I've seen from different blogs and celebrity websites, I haven't really seen any 27 Dresses-type bridesmaid dresses. I'm pretty sure most brides, if not all, want their bridesmaids to look beautiful too, right?

Here are some bridesmaid dresses from Shopbop that I think every bridesmaid would looooove to wear (I know I do!):

Notte by Marchesa
Strapless Chiffon Gown with Pleated Bodice (also available in black)
$925

Notte by Marchesa
Strapless Column Dress with Organza Cascade
$1,100

$935

$480

Notte by Marchesa

Which of these bridesmaid dresses did you like the most?
Have you, or anyone you know, had to endure a bridesmaid dress that isn't exactly stylish?

  18. Marchesa makes THE prettiest dresses! My favorites being the magenta, teal, and cobalt :) My best friend wanted me to wear an emerald green strapless dress and I was horrified at the prospect. I didn't wind up being a bridesmaid as I gave birth a week before the wedding :P

  25. I like the notte by marchesa one. I think my biggest problem with bridesmaid dresses is their expensive and you often can't wear them again. But that one is fun! and flirty! And could totally be worn again.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Deidre-- yeah, that's what a lot of bridesmaids say. but these can be totally worn for other occasions. :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow, some of these are positively gorgeous! Can I be in your wedding!?

  39. I love these! The short ones are really cute--I don't know why people have so much trouble finding the "perfect" bridesmaid dress, because these are all gorgeous! I could see one of the short ones working for homecoming even.

  42. Wonderful dresses especially the short ones! The most of all I like the Sweetheart Strapless Dress. Alfred Angelo's bridesmaid dresses are also very beautiful and much affordable. For my bridesmaids I bought Alfred Angelo Bridesmaid Dresses Style 7173. This ones suited perfectly with my wedding dress and with the wedding theme.
