Ever since Kate Middleton walked down the aisle in April 2012 and Pippa walked in wearing her stunning Alexander McQueen bridesmaid gown, white bridesmaid dresses have been thrust into the spotlight. Kim Kardashian then continued the white bridesmaid dress trend when she married Kris Humphries and has all her famous siblings wore gorgeous white dresses.

Style 31034 – Mori Lee Bridesmaid
If bright white isn’t right for your maids then ivory could be a gentler option. This strapless style 31034 from Mori Lee Bridesmaid has a sweetheart neckline and an A-line skirt. The heavy embroidered fabric means it will skim over any lumps and bumps and is a great figure flatterer.

Dallas Dress – Monsoon Bridesmaid
The Dallas dress from Monsoon Bridesmaid comes in a range of colours but the ivory dress is our favourite! The gentle sweetheart neckline leads to a fitted bodice, a pink ribbon then cinches in the waist and leads to a flowing skirt with a gentle A-line.
Style 2846 – Dessy Collection
If a dress that is completely white isn’t for you then how about going for a monochrome style? Style 2846 from Dessy Collection is a gorgeous full length gown that has a flattering lace overlay with a black waist-cinching band.

Just made sure if you dress your maids in this stunning gown that your own wedding dress is a stand-out gown with lots of detail.
Style 4064 – Alexia Designs Bridesmaid
We love how this simple satin gown from Alexia Designs Bridesmaid has delicate spaghetti straps and is then given a dramatic twist with the cascading black waist belt that then ruffles down the whole length of the skirt. Keep the jewellery and other accessories on this dress simple to let the dress do the talking.
Style 31003 – Mori Lee Bridesmaid
Style 31003 from Mori Lee Bridesmaid has an asymmetrical neckline with a ribbon at the waist. The lace means it will skim over the body and be a real figure flatterer. If you choose this stunning style then why not ask your maids to wear their hair swept up so you can really show off the neckline.
