Trust us on this one, you guys: hosting a classic wedding doesn't mean turning a blind eye to the latest and greatest trends hitting the runway. In fact, we think adding a touch of something new is the best way to infuse your wedding with a pop of something special. This year, we're all about embracing bridesmaid dresses with sparkly metallics and softer tones. Check out more of our picks below.
Okay, so metallics have been around for awhile now, but that just proves they are awesome, so they definitely top our list in 2018. The trick with metallics is not overdoing it - and we're all for infusing a little glitter into your bridal party with gorgeous gowns like the ones from Bari Jay. We love the fabrics (hey there, floral sequins), size options that work for every shape + height (seriously) and the fact that they even have maternity dresses with stretch panels. Your girls will love how amazing they look - and you'll love the craftsmanship and quality.
THE PRETTIEST SHADE OF PINK EVER
You know we can never get enough of a pretty pink hue, but this year we're focusing on one gorgeous shade in particular: Bari Jay's Rose. It's a color that will look good on absolutely anyone (trust us) and your besties will be thrilled to float down the aisle in one of Bari Jay's stunning styles. And if that's not enough of a win-win, take note: Bari Jay is a family-owned business that has over 50 years of experience creating beautiful gowns and even offers up junior bridesmaid and flower girl options that will coordinate perfectly with your bridal party.
NEUTRALS DONE RIGHT
It's not always about adding a pop of color, and Bari Jay's lineup of breathtaking neutrals proves it. For a look that is more classic and demure, we can't stop talking about the delicate detailing, figure-flattering silhouettes and statement making details, like those jaw-dropping illusion backs. Plus, we love how easy it is to take these soft hues and mix and match, so your besties can really feel relaxed in a style that is right for them. Oh, and did we mention that Bari Jay will soon debut a stretch crepe fabric? Yes, a bridesmaid gown with stretch - we know you love that.
From sparkly metallics to soft neutrals to the prettiest shade of pink ever, 2018 is looking to be a good year. We suggest spending some time perusing this lovely Brooklyn Botanic Garden shoot from You Look Lovely Fine Art Photography, Patina Events and Gabrielle Hurwitz (just to name a few), then head to Bari Jay to create your own stunning story.
