White Bridesmaid Dress Inspiration

It is possible to have an all-white bridal train without being ‘upstaged’ by your favourite girls on your wedding day. Here are some tips to guide you in choosing the perfect white dresses for your bridesmaids:

Keep It Simple

White bridesmaid dresses should have simple streamlined silhouettes as opposed to the bride’s dress with embellishments, exaggerated necklines and waistlines.

Focus On The Fabric

The chosen fabric for the wedding dress should be elaborate and complement its style and structure as compared to a simpler fabric for the bridal train.

Necklines and Structure

Selecting the bride’s style first would make it easier to choose alternatives for her maids. For example, if the wedding dress has long sleeves, a train and a sweetheart neckline, the bridal train could wear sleevelessknee-length dresses with a simple round neckline. If the wedding dress is fitted, the bridal train dress could be flared.

Adding simple accessories to the bridal train outfits will differentiate them from the bride’s and will not take away her shine. Floral wreaths or a simple flower hairpiece could be a great addition to a simple bridesmaid outfit while the bride could contrast on this look with a tiara.

Play With Length

Bridesmaid dresses can be short and chic while the bride’s dress can be ornamental with a lovely train. Midi dresses with a simple sweetheart neckline will also look very classy for the bridesmaids. The bride will definitely not be upstaged with an arrangement like this.

The Bride may also opt for a wedding dress that is not white; pink and blush tones go very well with elaborate dresses.

The all-white theme never gets old. Rather than think that your favourite girls will upstage you on your special day, have at the back of your mind that you are the one that is getting married and bask in a moment of self-love and appreciation from your future spouse. Dresses will only be worn for a day but your marriage is meant to last a lifetime!
