Keeping your wedding party on trend

Planning a wedding is a big job, especially when everyone you know has an opinion about what should be worn. When it comes to the bridesmaid dresses, you can either pick them out on your own or provide bridesmaids with guidelines in choosing their own attire. Either way you go, you will want to be aware of the summer 2014 bridesmaid dress trends that are hot right now. Here are a few of the trends that any bridesmaid in any wedding can pull off.

Lace
The top trend in weddings for 2014 is lace. Bridesmaids can look great in head-to-toe lace, or it can be added to parts of the dress for a more subtle look. Lace can really stand out in two ways. The first way is to add it to the neckline for a sophisticated look. The second way is to have the skirt made of lace with a contrasting color showing through underneath. This style is a little more fun and great for weddings that are not seriously formal.

Sparkle
Bridesmaids dresses are supposed to take a backseat to the glitz and glamor of the bride’s dress, but today’s designers are adding a hint of sparkle and flair to bridesmaid dresses so they can feel special too. While most of the trendy dresses only add the sparkle as a subtle hint, this additional element can be tailored to suit the needs of your wedding theme. This style is best utilized for formal weddings, and if you want to be on trend twice, your bridesmaids can wear dresses with sparkly lace for added depth.

Ombre
For more casual weddings, an ombre style dress can be the thing that sets the wedding party apart from the scenery. The ombre style is basically a fade from one color to another down the dress. While it can be subtle, you can also have a bolder ombre style that mixes a number of colors into the design. This trend is great for outdoor wedding. particularly those being held at the beach.
