Whether you are a bright colour obsessive or are rarely seen in anything other than black, we could all do with a little bit of inspiration when it comes to bridesmaids colours. Designed to be mixed and matched, our 11 bold shades make for the most striking of combinations. To help you out we have selected our four favourite tonal mixes.

Our new rust satin (available soon in our Brooklyn dress!) looks ridiculously gorgeous when paired with our autumnal Chianti and Blackcurrant shades. Order your free fabric swatches here.

The biggest and boldest of the bridesmaids trends, mismatched is here to stay. Done right it makes for the coolest of looks but it can be a tricky one to nail. From clashing prints to tonal gradation and contrasting textures, we bring to you the cardinal rules of mixing and matching.

 

1. One style DOESN’T suit all 

Long gone are the days when free thinking adult women are expected to dress in the same outfit, now it is entirely possible to let your bridesmaids show off their own sense of style and identity whilst achieving a uniform look. Opt for different styles in the same colour for a modern take on the traditional bridal party. Oh and your bridesmaids will love you for it, we promise.

2. Don’t be afraid to be BOLD

We specially designed all of our colours to be worn together. Bright Coral with red-wine friendly Chianti and pale Oyster pink – why the hell not? Turquoise marine green with deep forest and brilliant bluebell? Abso-bloody-lutely. Embrace the colour pop and go BOLD.

3. Play with TEXTURE

The subtle sheen of a satin when teamed with a matt crepe and a pretty printed chiffon dress will win serious style points and looks glorious in photographs – different fabrics will capture a kaleidoscope of colours in sunlight.

4. Throw in a TROUSER

Call us biased but we LOVE a strong trouser leg and think every bridal party should feature at least one jumpsuit. Look for a flowing palazzo silhouette that will blend seamlessly with any dress or skirt.

We regularly get calls from our wonderful customers – sometimes in a small panic – as one of their bridesmaids has just announced their pregnancy or they are looking for a dress to fit their breastfeeding pal who has just given birth. Whilst babies are obvious fabulous news we understand that it can be tricky when trying to find that perfectly fitting bridesmaids dress. Fear not, this happens ALL OF THE TIME and the good news is that you can rock one of our dresses just as easily whether bump or sans bump. As (we like to think) experts in this field here are a few tips on finding the ideal style for you 

As bloody obvious as it sounds, when looking for a dress to fit your pregnant bridesmaid look for something loose fitting at the waist – a wrap style dress is a fantastic option as it can be tightened or loosened as much as necessary. Our Florence and Tokyo wrap dresses lend themselves excellently as maternity bridesmaids styles as they wrap to cover any bump perfectly. Depending on your due date and increased bust we would usually recommend ordering 1 -2 sizes up from your normal size.  Plus, a wrap dress is perfect for easy access breastfeeding, as is our Seville dress with its shoulder ties. 

Another style that works really well is empire line as the waist seam sits just under the bust and above the bump. Try our Mykonos dress for a modern take on the traditional empire line dress with cold shoulders sleeves and waist darts that allow for extra room below the bust.  

Also if you are worried about your bump raising the hem of your dress at the front, we can make any of our dresses in a longer length (there is an extra charge for this service) – that way you can have it altered to be slightly longer on the front when on the hanger, but perfectly even all the way round when worn over your bump.   

But don’t just take our word for it, we asked the ever stylish Founder of chic beachwear brand Pampelone, Holly Scarsella (www.pampelone.com) how she found wearing our Oyster Florence dress for her sisters big day when she was 8 months pregnant. 

 ‘Being a bridesmaid is such an honour, especially for your sister, but finding out that it will be two days before your due date at 9 months pregnant filled me with apprehension. I was so nervous about how I’d feel but that changed as soon as I tried on my Rewritten dress.  I felt a million dollars – the cut suited a 9 month pregnant woman perfectly.’

Putting on a dress may sound like a fairly straightforward task, however, there can be a knack to getting our dresses looking as fabulous on you as they do on the hanger. Here are our top styling tips on how to get your dress sitting ‘oh so perfectly’ in time for the big day.

First thing’s first, although we steam our dresses and wrap them carefully in tissue paper, they may arrive with you looking a little rumpled. To get those creases out either iron your dress on a low temperature, steam with a handheld steamer or hang in a bathroom and let the hot steam from your shower do the hard work.
