Life of the Party

Dazzle your bridesmaids with the unexpected. Tweak tradition and choose colors and styles that resonate glamour, drama and versatile designs.

Spice It Up

Ruffles and a simple accent of a tie waist give Carla’s opal double-faced taffeta bodice and skirt ($199) by Belsoie from One Enchanted Evening a taste of distinction. Her hot-pink mini callas, raspberry dahlia and blue nigella bouquet is designed by James Marshall from Amaryllis Flowers.




Leave Them Green With Envy

Carla has sophisticated fun in a thistle, French satin gown ($359) by Saison Blanche Couture with rhinestone accents and silver clutch ($39) by La Regale from One Enchanted Evening.






Make Them Swoon

Nicole is breathtaking in her seafoam-blue satin face taffeta dress ($345.98) from MB Bride.





Party On

Her cantaloupe double-faced taffeta ($305) from The Bridal Beginning is cause for Nicole to celebrate fresh-picked color. Her mixed zinnias and orange celosia bouquet is designed by James Marshall from Amaryllis Flowers.





Soaring in Stripes

Retro pink stripes on the bodice of Carla’s dress pop against her apricot satin skirt ($271) from The Bridal Beginning. Her orange Gerber daisy and hot princess-rose bouquet is designed by James Marshall from Amaryllis Flowers.





In the Pink

Her shade of pale coral takes this strapless chiffon dress ($275) by Saison Blanche Couture from bridal party to an evening on the town; from One Enchanted Evening.








Girls Just Want to Have Fun

The party starts with vibrant shades of citrus hues. Nicole’s raspberry satin gown ($232) and Carla’s kiwi and ivory dress ($262) are both from The Bridal Beginning.
