The struggling economy these last few years has shaped the trends in the look and style of a bridesmaid dress. Even though the economy is looking up, some of those trends from the previous seasons are going to evolve into what the bridesmaid dresses will look like next spring!
One of the trends recently has been the knee-length bridesmaid dress. Though many brides still love the floor length gowns for their bridal party, shorter lengths have increased in popularity due to the fact that these dresses are more likely to be worn again, another option is to buy a long dress that your bridesmaid could wear again for another special occasion.
This re-usability makes them a great economical option for bridesmaids. Brides who choose these reusable styles for their bridesmaids are doing them a huge favor.
The strapless dress also still holds its own, for bridal gowns and for bridesmaid dresses.
Many, if not most, of the dresses for spring 2011 are strapless, an elegant style that emphasizes the neck and shoulders in a classically feminine way. A strapless bridesmaid dress that has been properly fitted to its wearer is one of the most flattering styles around. Just be sure to invest in a quality strapless bra!
One-shouldered dresses are also rapidly growing in popularity. The unique, asymmetrical shape of a one-shouldered bridesmaid dress suits brides who want a bridal party with a fashion-forward edge. The single shoulder strap can be delicate, for a feminine look, or bolder, for a more sassy and urban appearance.
Accessories such as beads, sequins, laces, and flowers, are very popular and provide a nice feminine touch. Bows, sashes and ruching make great options in 2011 for those who are somewhat body conscious. Emphasizing the natural waist line this way is a classic feminine style.
Popular colors for spring 2011 are brights like apple green, fuchsia, coral, amethyst, emerald, orange, and yellow. New classics like grey, navy, and chocolate brown will make a return appearance as well.
Last but not least, the growing trend of a color coordinated bridal party instead of a completely uniformed or exactly matching bridal party will be back this season. More brides are letting their bridesmaids personalize their style and are stepping away from the concept that each bridesmaid needs to look identical.
Brides give them a color palette to choose from and/or a few styles to choose from, giving each bridesmaid a chance to pick something they will really love.
Regardless of the style, color, and cut of your bridesmaids dresses, in Spring 2011 the biggest trend is to make the saying "always a bridesmaid, never a bride" be a little less depressing by providing your bridesmaids with beautiful and wearable dresses that they will love forever.
