Don’t wear white to a wedding….one of the cardinal rules of wedding attire. I feel like its a pretty good rule except for with the bridesmaids dresses. Having the bridesmaids match the bride in white is a recent trend (cough cough…Kim and Kanye’s wedding) that I can jump on board with. While paying massive sums of money to have your bridesmaids wear custom made couture gowns is something I CAN’T jump on board with (Sorry Kim), you can still follow along with the trend by choosing a dress like the Dixie Dress from Mikarose.
Though the dress is white, is showcases delicate light gray polka dots. These serve two functions for the bridesmaid dresses. First, they tone down the dress by adding a dimension of color–thus making them less like the bride’s dress. Second, they are so subtle, they easily blend in with the rest of the dress in photographs. This way, the polka dots don’t overtake the focus of the pictures and replace the bride as the center of attention.
Because they are white, they can be accessorized to match almost any wedding colors. We paired the dresses with neutral belts, shoes, and necklaces, but a bold sash or bright pair of heels could add a fun dimension of color.
What do you think? Is having your bridesmaids in white a little too much “Kimye” for you?
