Trend of the Week: Hollywood Glam Bridesmaids

board

By Jadée Nikita

If you were the Maid of Honor and the bride asked you to help her style the bridesmaids look for her big day, what would you suggest? – Weddington Way

ANSWER:

ALL THE WAY GLAM!

Weddings are special, so why not go all out for that amazing day?  Share the experience with your gyal pals, and let them feel special as well by dolling them up in an old hollywood glam look!

The color

 Fly Gyals are bold, so I took a non-traditional route and chose a fabulous ombre cranberry red dress for my bridesmaids.  In most cultures, red is a symbol of good luck and prosperity.  This long and flowy, yet fitted bodice dress will look great on most body shapes.

Accessories

The bag:  Should be fun, complementing, and versatile.  I love clutches with mini rosettes on them because when your bridesmaids aren’t carrying their bouquet, it will still look like they are holding flowers.  How fly is that?!

The shoes:  Since the dress is long, it will cover up most of the shoe.  Therefore, opt for comfort and treat your gyals to a mani-pedi if wearing sandals 😉

Jewelry:  Since we are going for an old holywood glam look, go for pieces that are simply-opulent.  Statement necklaces in crystal and diamonds look great with cropped-top dresses, and chandelier and drop earrings with structured shapes work well with halter dresses.  Pretty much, anything that sparkles is golden!

Makeup:  Go non-traditional and keep the glam going with a simple cat-eye and dark-berry lip.  Not only will your gyals look mysteriously gorgeous, they will have a sweet toughness to them as well.
