Forget cookie-cutter bridesmaid dresses! These days the rules around what your leading ladies wear are much less rigid, making matchy-matchy taffeta monstrosities virtually obsolete. Some of the most stylish weddings we’ve seen involve the bride simply selecting a colour swatch then letting her attendants each select a dress in that assigned shade that suits her personality but still meshes with the tone of the day. The result is stunning and absolutely unique to each bride and her celebration. This also makes for much happier ‘maids who are able to opt for dresses they know will flatter their figures, fit within their budgets and complement their existing wardrobes.
