5 Chic Bridesmaid Trends for 2012

  |  By Alison McGill

A happy bridal party is a chicly attired bridal party. You want your girls to look fabulous and feel fantastic too. Now, what to choose?! What’s on trend you ask? We asked Danielle Gulic from Toronto’s Two Birds (if you are not familiar with this brand, get to know them—Two Birds makes ah-mazing bridesmaid dresses, like the one pictured. Gorge, right?!) what’s hot for bridesmaids and she gave us the skinny.

Dress Style: Think feminine and modest—ladies want to look like ladies! Tea-length hemlines and dainty details are big.

Colour: Jewel tones and highly saturated colours are huge. Shades like aubergine, dark purple and blues are very hot. Mixing up your colours is also very trending right now—I love the look of having your girls in variations of the same shade.

Theme: Let your bridesmaids express their personality by having them each wear a dress style that’s unique to them. Having everyone in the same dress looks very uniform—mix it up and have fun!

Accessories: Have fun with accessories by having different pieces on each of your girls, but unify the look by having the jewellery made from the same materials.

Shoes: Go for neutrals or matte metallic. And I love wedges! They are comfortable, chic and a comfy choice to wear all day and all night!

Another tip Danielle had for you when it comes to your girls: if you can buy or contribute towards the cost of their dress, please do. “This gesture means a lot is a guarantee you’ll make them feel like a queen.”
