This is a great Dear Abby question, as I know that many of you aren’t interested in classic bridesmaid style dresses…

Q4 – I’m getting married on the Cape in September so we are definitely keeping true to a casually, chic beach wedding. But I am really not having a feeling for bridesmaid dresses. Do you know of any lines that make maxi style, long dresses? Something a little more modern in shape then just the traditional tee length style? This being said I have a range of sizes for my girls.

A4 – I love, love, love the Maxi style dresses that are back in style. And, I love that you are willing to think outside of the bridesmaid box for your girls…they are very lucky and will definitely get a lot of use out of the dress that you choose! Here are some of my picks for Maxi dresses…

I am always looking at popular stores for alternate ideas to bridemaids dresses. With that said, I do have some favorite bridal designers that have AMAZING bridesmaids dresses…Jenny Yoo, Olivia Luca, Vera Wang, Melissa Sweet. I could go on, but I think you already know the designers that I am talking about. Hope this helps!
