I just happened to watch 27 Dresses for the first time last week and since I have a friend who is getting married soon, I’ve tagged along on trips to see bridesmaid dresses. The combination of bridal shops and Katherine Hiegel’s character in 27 dresses really got me wondering why there are so many HORRIBLE dresses?! Do brides really purposefully choose something hideous to make sure they stand out? Or are designers behind this scheme?
The signature collection at Butter by Nadia is the perfect solution. There is enough versatility to truly make your bridesmaids feel one of a kind, AND they don’t have to try and cut the dress in order to wear it again or simply hide it away.
The real key? Keep it classic, with simple colors and lines and your dress will shine. I also personally think they should be kept short but that’s my preference.
Alfred Angelo has some great examples of classic styles and here are some of my favorites:
Best of all, if any of you readers are getting married, Alfred Angelo is celebrating 75 years by giving away dresses! And after 75 years, I guess they’re doing something right!
