Aside from the bride's of course, the most talked about outfits on display at any wedding are those worn by the bridesmaids. Bridesmaids are chosen due to their great friendship with the bride to be as well as a lasting sense of mutual respect between them both. With that in mind, the role of the bridesmaid is seen as something of a sacred position, especially here in Ireland, so it should go without saying that such a revered job calls for an extra special dress.
As is the case with all wedding guest dresses, those worn specifically by bridesmaids are likely to be one of, if not the most beautiful garments anyone will wear all year, so a lot of thought and consideration must go into choosing the type of dress that suits your bridal party. It's a big decision no doubt, but Littlewoods Ireland is here to help!
Wonderful Dresses for any Wedding
The time of year greatly affects what is considered appropriate wedding attire. After all, in a country as seasonal as Ireland, the weather is probably the single most important factor when it comes to determining what we wear. Bridesmaids' dresses are certainly no different in this regard!
For that classic spring and summer season wedding look, it's possible to go for shorter dresses, with midi generally being the length of choice, while pencil, swing and even skater styles take to the forefront as guests enjoy the mild weather. Bright and vibrant colours can really add to the feel good summer time vibe and look great in sunny photos. Consider kitting out your bridesmaids in coral or turquoise for added vibrancy.
Winter weddings have become increasingly popular in recent times. Of course, it's a wise move to opt for a longer style of dress for such occasions as the possibility of a chilly Irish breeze is a much more probable proposition at this time of year! Long maxi dresses should be considered the order of the day here, while maroon and navy make for good colour choices.
Don't forget to complete your perfect bridesmaid outfits with the appropriate accessories. Fascinators always add a touch of class to a formal outfit while a nice clutch bag will round things off nicely!
