Are you planning a large wedding to take place in spring 2011? If so, you’ll need to outfit your bridesmaids for that special occasion. Sure, you can opt for the ugly, traditional bridesmaid dresses from the past, or you can partake of the spring 2011 bridesmaid dress trends. Here are four bridesmaid dress trends for spring 2011 (Links listed below to help with purchases):
Ann Taylor Cocktail-Length Dress. A woman can never go wrong with the short cocktail dress, especially when it comes from the Ann Taylor collection, so skip having a seamstress sew up your bridesmaid dresses and choose to outfit your bridesmaids in the Silk Crossover Bridesmaid Dress. It comes from the Ann Taylor collection and costs $185 per dress on the Ann Taylor website. The good news is that each bridesmaid can proudly wear this dress again and again because it works perfectly for any formal function. The Ann Taylor website even gives you 3 colors to choose from, including the classic black color.
Charmeuse by Alfred Angelo. If you’re willing to spend the money on Alfred Angelo for your bridal party, you can surely outfit them in this retro-looking Charmeuse dress. The website provides a picture and a store locator, but it fails to provide any pricing information, so the buyer needs to contact the closest store to negotiate pricing. Still, this dress will flatter most any figure and still stays with the trendy, cocktail length that will be so popular for spring 2011. Even better, the bridal party attendants can also use this dress again and again.
London Times Dress at Macy’s Department Store. If you’re looking for a dress that is really nice and costs less money, why not choose the London Times Dress at Macy’s Department Store? This dress costs just under $90, and that’s before any discounts that may be available. The London Times dress offers the trendy cocktail length, a modest and fashionable look, and the choice of four different colors. This dress is actually a sleeveless cocktail dress, so your bridal party members can be sure to wear this dress multiple times.
Evan Picone Luna Blue Surplice Cocktail Dress. Macy’s Department Store even offers a bigger value for your wedding budget with this Evan Picone Surplice Cocktail Dress. The bad news is that it comes only in Luna Blue, but if this color works for you, the price is surely right. This cocktail dress is currently marked down to less than $45 per dress, but you’ll need to hurry before they sell out.
