Last week, Pantone named emerald as its 2013 Color of the Year. We’re big fans of this rich, lustrous jewel tone and think it’s worth considering for your wedding day color palette. Particularly apropos for a winter wedding, emerald-hued bridesmaid dresses are a lovely way to incorporate this shade into your wedding day. We’ve gathered some of our favorite bridesmaid dresses in this gorgeous green – from modern one-shoulder styles to ethereal gowns, there are lots to choose from. Let us know what you think of these styles in the comments!
Let’s be honest. Being a bridesmaid costs a lot of money. There are dresses to buy, gifts to give, parties to host. For brides who are looking to save their ‘maids some money the Little Borrowed Dress is the place to go for stylish bridesmaid dresses that are extremely affordable.
The company offers a selection of chic designs in both cocktail and floor-length styles you can rent. You can choose between four different neckline styles so everyone can feel comfortable dancing the night away. And the dresses are made so you don’t have to alter them. Worried they won’t have something to match your color palette? Don’t be! They offer 18 color options, and if you order at least two months in advance they’ll guarantee the style, color and size you want will be available.
So how does it work: Browse their website, littleborroweddress.com, and pick the style, size and color you want and then reserve the date. Not sure what size you are? They’ll send you two options. When the wedding’s over just pop it back in the mail in the pre-addressed and stamped envelope that came with your dress.
And the pricing…$50 for knee-length, $75 for floor-length, plus a $5 insurance fee.

Our Olympics obsession has not wavered, and we have many more medal-worthy wedding details to share with you. We’ve already provided you with gold and silver wedding cakes and wedding dresses but today, it’s all about the bridesmaids! We think metallic bridesmaid dresses, like the ones shown above, would be lovely at more formal, glamorous weddings. Are you a fan of these gold and silver bridesmaid dresses? Let us know in the comments!
Blue has been a popular bridesmaid dress color choice for a while – but with so many shades to choose from, how do you decide? Of course, you could have your ‘maids each pick a dress in a different shade of blue to create a pretty palette, but if you just want to pick one shade, think about your venue. Lighter blue shades look best in the warmer months, at less formal weddings in outdoor settings like the beach or garden. Darker shades are ideal in colder months (though navy looks great year-round!) for more formal weddings at country clubs or ballrooms.

We’re loving all of the new bridesmaid dress options out there – so many new fabrics, necklines, and colors to choose from! While some bridal parties wear the exact same dress, we’re also noticing more and more groups of bridesmaids wearing dresses with differing necklines, or perhaps choosing their own dresses within the same color palette (we thought the three brand-new dresses above would make a pretty combination). That got us wondering about what your bridesmaids are doing. Take the poll below, and if you’re doing something completely different, let us know in the comments!
