Bridesmaid Dresses: Beyond the Wedding Day

Forget the horrible bridesmaids dresses of the past! Learn how to pick the perfect dress for your bridesmaids with help from our guest post from The Dessy Group’s Bridesmaid blog.

Remember when being a bridesmaid meant having to purchase a dress you knew you wouldn’t like and would only wear once? When the norm was big, poofy, billowing material that even the best of friends would have a hard time wearing with a smile. Remember beauties like these?

Thankfully, it no longer has to be this way! No more tears, no more forced smiles or money wasted horrendous dresses. The modern woman has demanded more.  Rise up, I say, and applaud yourselves for putting an end to disaster dresses and demanding the emergence of bridesmaid dresses you actually look forward to buying and *GASP!* even wear again and again.

That’s right, today’s bridesmaid dresses are chocked full of style and grace. At The Dessy Group, we provide just that. We combine chic, sophisticated sensibility with a signature array of color choices that make the dresses the centerpiece to any wedding celebration. From floor to tea length dresses in a variety of modern fabrics, we offer elegance that can be worn long after the reception.

Try styles like these on for size instead:

Alfred Sung 2010 Collection

Lela Rose 2010 Collection

As a bride, you now have endless choices to outfit your best women in high fashion, styling and affordable dresses.  You can even shake it up a bit and choose the color while having them choose their favorite style, or vice versa. The anything goes mentality is in, while, thankfully, the poof is out!

For many more long lasting styles check out the Dessy site. Beyond finding the perfect dress you’ll find a section dedicated to PANTONE Wedding, a collection of tools including the PANTONE WEDDING color guide with over 190 colors, perfectly matched paper swatch cards and online Style Boards to help you select perfectly color coordinated dresses and décor. This means it’s easier than ever to find modern bridesmaid dresses in your perfect dream color and a style that will compliment you.

    My bridesmaids will be wearing a dress from the Alfred Sung collection. They all loved it! We just ordered them last weekend.
