2014 Bridesmaid Trends - NYC Market

Bridesmaid Trends from NYC Market 2014

In addition to the fabulous new bridal trends we spotted on the runway in New York City, we also witnessed several fun fashions working their way into the 2014 bridesmaid market. Many of our favorite wedding dress trends are now being incorporated into dress designs for the maids. These fashion forward options are quickly changing the bad rap bridesmaid dresses have gotten for several years. Say farewell to the ‘ugly bridesmaid dress’ stereotype and hello to these fun, flirty, and chic options for your girls!

Trendy Tulle
When I think about wedding dresses, one word in particular comes to mind: TULLE! Whether you love the princess-y feel of the fabric or you think it resembles a frosted cupcake, bridal tulle is here to stay…at least for this season. Designers like Amsale and Jenny Yoo have incorporated tulle into their bridesmaid lines. The light weight and breathable fabric takes on a whole new look when sampled in colors other than white!

Fit & Flares
Fit & Flare silhouettes are making their debut in the bridesmaid department this season. This flirty fit tends to be a favorite style for brides, allowing them to show off their figure! Amsale came out with a few fit & flare options in their new tulle fabric for bridesmaids.

Lots of Lace
If you’re a 2014 bride on the hunt for your gown and aren't very fond of lace, you’re out of luck! Just kidding… well, kind of. If you look back at pictures from your mother's wedding, or even your grandma's gown, there’s a pretty good chance the dress had some kind of lace in the design. It has gone in and out of style for many years, but lace is definitely a prevalent trend in the 2014 bridal AND bridesmaid season. LulaKate, Lynn Lugo, Dessy, Amsale, Jenny Yoo, and pretty much every other bridesmaid line out there is using some kind of lace in a variety of colors for their bridesmaid collection.

Illusion Neckline Craze
The illusion neckline provides the same bare look of a strapless gown but adds a little more coverage and support. This dainty and flattering neckline provides subtle sexiness for the fashion forward bride. Illusion necklines have been a huge hit on the bridal runways for a couple years now, and now they're becoming increasingly popular for bridesmaid styles.

A Touch of Sparkle
For the girly-girls out there who love all-things-sparkly, you will adore this fun new trend happening in bridesmaid dresses – embellished belts! Jenny Yoo added a few new bridesmaid belts to their collection this season. This is a great idea if you want to compliment maid's attire to complement the sparkle from the bride’s gown. Glam accessories are positively in this season and very fitting for a classic black-tie wedding.

One thing is for certain, wedding fashions change dramatically with every decade, so it’s no surprise the bridesmaid trends follow suit. All fashions tend to recycle in and out of style, with only the most popular styles lasting multiples seasons. We are excited to see how our Kentucky brides like the new fashions that are coming soon to our boutique. Be on the look out for these chic style options, fun fabrics, and pretty colors!
You can expect these fabulous Spring 2014 styles to arrive at Twirl towards the beginning of February. Call us for any questions about the new dresses or to set up your private appointment (859) 309-2493.

Sweet Southern Charm

My mother was born in Alabama and raised in Mississippi, so my upbringing was completely southern. I thought this week I would show you what my ideal Southern wedding would consist of! - Kelly, Twirl Girl Intern

The Dress

When I was younger my mother gave me a Wedding Barbie Doll, I will never forget the dress this doll wore. It was a Swiss dot 3 layer dream - and turns out - that dream is a reality! Dress designer Jenny Yoo has a Swiss dot dress that reminds me of my childhood dream gown. The dress is from Jenny Yoo's latest collection and is called the Geogeanne. The great thing about this dress is that it is lightweight and airy, prefect for a hot Southern wedding!

The Bridesmaids and Groomsmen

For the bridesmaids, of course I had to choose Lula Kate - the epitome southern chic style! Not only does Lula Kate carry a blue seersucker fabric, but you also have the option to mix and match various skirt styles and necklines - perfect for a bridal party of all shapes and sizes! For the groomsmen I would go with button downs, khaki pants and the Vineyard Vines blue seersucker bowtie.

The Flowers

My absolute dream bouquet for a Southern themed wedding is a combination of hydrangeas and white peonies. Both flowers are well known in the south & have such a heavenly fragrance.

The Venue

I have always envisioned my wedding to take place outside, underneath two weeping willow trees, with hydrangea plants and magnolia trees surrounding the ceremony. In the South, there is nothing better than the evening air perfumed with the scent of magnolia trees. This would all take place at a plantation type venue with a main house for the bridal party to prepare in!

The Decorations

When I was a teenager, my grandmother gave me her floral china set. Back then, I didn’t realize what a treasure I was left. I would use this china set for my wedding party reception dinner, and for everyone else, the most classic dishes I could find. The table would be full serviced with low hydrangea flower arrangements so you could see the guest across from you. I would breakout my mother’s crystal for the serving dishes, 'cause crystal never goes out of style in the south.

I hope you enjoyed a glimpse of a Southern girls dream wedding until next time…
