We round up the frocks your BFF’s will want to wear again.
The best bridesmaid dresses for a summer wedding
Unless you’re one of the lucky few, chances are if you’ve ever been a bridesmaid, the frock you ended up having to wear was not something that would make it into your wardrobe out of choice – swathes of peach polyester spring to mind!
If it’s now your time to be the bride and select frocks for your bridesmaids to wear, we advise picking a colour theme and then selecting a few different silhouette options so that your besties can pick the most flattering style for their figure type.
To get you started, we’ve combed the new season collections and whittled it down to three of our favourite looks for your ladies in waiting and trust us, your girl gang will be very grateful once they see these stylish picks.
Floral print dress, Mango, visit City Centre Mirdif and City Centre Muscat
While it’s somewhat rare for bridesmaids to be wearing prints, we think that nothing is prettier than to have your favourite ladies decked in romantic florals – ideal for bohemian nuptials or garden weddings.
Yellow dress, Zara, City Centre Deira, City Centre Mirdif, City Centre Bahrain, City Centre Muscat, City Centre Alexandria and City Centre Maadi
This lemon-hued satin dress is the perfection option for bridesmaids of all shapes and sizes thanks to the flattering tie-wrap waist and delicate puff sleeves.
Pink jumpsuit, BCBGMAXAZRIA, visit City Centre Mirdif
Okay, so this might not be a dress per say, but our fashion team is all in agreement that a sleek jumpsuit or even a tailored two-piece suit (à la Bianca Jagger’s iconic wedding day look) is a chic option for any modern bridal party, and one that your friends are bound to get wear out of in the future.
