Time to listen up, bridesmaids! Your lineup of fall weddings will be here before you can say “congratulations” to the grooms and “best wishes” to the brides. That’s why it’s best to start now on ordering romantic bridesmaid dresses to wear to all these special occasions.
It will take between 6 and 12 weeks (in the best-case scenario) to order bridesmaid dresses. You can pick out gowns and order them in store at StarDust, and the order will be placed when everyone has sent in their individual measurements and gown payments. Best to get started today!
For ideas on planning out your gowns, we’ve put together the top 3 trends for bridesmaid dresses that’ll have you looking fine this fall.
Trend #1: Bring On the Glam With Fall Jewel Tones
Pastels are sweet but we are thrilled to see sexy shades of ruby, sapphire and emerald on our racks. Jeweled gowns are a major trend for bridesmaid dresses in the 2018 wedding season. What’s not to love? These rich, vibrant shades have all the sophistication and glamour of a black gown but the pop of color leaves a lasting impression. Not to mention, they look flawless on nearly all skin tones.
Jewel tones are such a classic, they are sure to stay on the top of trend lists for seasons to come. Not only will you be in style for your fall weddings, but this will be a gown to wear for many future elegant evenings. Win-win!
Trend #2: Strike a Pose in Lush Velvet Textures
For fall weddings, velvet can add a touch of drama to the overall wedding party look. Last seen on the runways in the 1990’s, velvet is definitely staging a comeback in the wedding industry this year (and next year!). Velvet textures can be a fun alternative to lighter fabrics like chiffon, and they are easy to mix and match for a luxurious touch that you won’t be able to keep your hands off of.
Trend #3: Look Sexy in an Off-the-Shoulder Dress
An off-the-shoulder dress is a classic choice for bridesmaids. You can’t go wrong! The trend this year is a playful “cold shoulder”. Long sleeves reveal some skin while keeping it modest and chic. This is such a fabulously practical trend for the cooler fall months!
In 2019, bridesmaid dresses with sleeves will continue to be popular with delicate details like the tied shoulder, flouncy cap sleeves or voluminous bell sleeves. If you’re going to be outdoors in nice weather, then you can opt for this flirty look at the ceremony. Girl, show off those pretty shoulders!
At StarDust, you can order gowns as a group in store with the other bridesmaids in your wedding party. If your group has four or more women, you can receive a discount, upon request—remember to ask when you go in! Usually, you’ll receive a better price when all of the gowns are ordered from the same salon (both online and in store). If you live in a different town than the other bridesmaids, you can always order your dress online here.
