Bridesmaid Trends!

Mixed materials and textures – At bridal market in New York, Amsale debuted their favorite new look that bolder brides can emulate to create the perfectly unique-yet-coordinated, couture look for their bridal party using a mix of their tulle, lace and crinkle chiffon gowns.  Not only are brides encouraged to blend these different textures together, but they can also allow their ladies to choose from the various bodice styles offered in these different materials, that way each of their best girls looks and feels as beautiful and comfortable as possible.  We sampled this trend in Charcoal, as grey is still an extremely popular color amongst Austin brides.
Neutrals, neutrals, neutrals – Although there’s been talk at bridal market and various blogs about brides starting to embrace bolder colors such as gem tones, we are still experiencing a high demand for neutral, ethereal hues.  Mixing these colors is a beautiful way to compliment each bridesmaid’s coloring and still make a strong statement using this tonal look.  Our tone-on-tone neutral look is modeled below in a line that Austin brides seem to adore – Ceremony by Joanna August.
Big colors for 2014 – After reading many a wedding blog, fashion blog, Pantone report, etc. and making mental notes of the colors our brides are requesting most, we’ve come up with three colors you can be sure to see a lot of during Spring/Summer 2014: Aqua, Pink and Navy (or Royal blue).  These are all base colors as we see lots of variations – such as “blush” or “teal” instead of pink or aqua – but you get the gist!  We love all three of these colors when incorporated together, paired with grey tones, or placed against a backdrop of neutrals to create the a seasonally-appropriate wedding color palette. These colors are shown below in a new line we are honored to have recently picked up: Donna Morgan.
Here at Bella Bridesmaid, we are making great strides to improve our already top-notch services that we can offer your brides, including: picking up new lines (Donna Morgan and Monique Lhullier), franchise re-branding (stay turned to see our new logo and store décor!) and even an interactive website that is sure to knock brides’ socks off.  We thank you all for your referrals and will continue to spread the word about our favorite vendors and planners, as well.  We wish you all a happy and healthy holiday season and New Year!
