White Runway

Behind every bride lies a great bridesmaid, and we believe those bridesmaids should look great too. Although we find beauty in just about every bridesmaid dress, our own personal style really reflects a sleek, simply stated kind of vibe. Yes, the bride is the star of the show, but your besties will thank you when they’re standing up on your day looking fabulous beside you. We like bridesmaid dresses that emulate what’s going on in the non-bridal fashion world–dresses that are fun, flirty, and a little bit different than your typical dress.

For this shoot, we had the absolute pleasure of partnering with White Runway to showcase our BTS style through bridesmaid attire. White Runway has a huge selection of dresses that will fit just about anyone’s style but we had the pleasure and privilege of choosing our favorites for this incredible styled shoot.

Take a look at this beautiful photos and let us know which dress is your favorite in the comments.

White Bridesmaid Dresses

You’ve heard it time and time again, “NEVER WEAR WHITE TO A WEDDING.” That rule is in place for obvious reasons but in case you’re new to weddings, here is the tea: white is typically reserved for the bride. There are a few exceptions to this rule: (1) You can wear white if that’s the attire the bride and groom request of their guests; and (2) If the bride asks her bridesmaids to wear white–which brings us to why we are here.

A recent trend we wouldn’t mind seeing more of is white bridesmaid dresses. Let us go on the record and say, we are here for it! We love it. We think it’s a bold statement, reserved for brides who are not worried about being outshined by their best gals alongside her–also in white–a bride comfortable that she is still the star of the show. I mean, just look at Solange. She is the perfect example. If we’re being real, we’re not sure we would let our sister wear white to our wedding if our sister were Beyonce LOL. But back to Solange. Years later, we’re still obsessing over her cape, but also that her wedding party was in white. Remember this iconic photo?

Now, that’s no shade to any bride that doesn’t choose white for her bridesmaids. This is just to say that BTS has an affinity for a bride that is willing to push the envelope a bit. We’ve compiled a list of weddings, with bridesmaids in white, we’re obsessed with. Hopefully, if you take away anything from this week’s blog, it’s that white on your big day can be done and done really well. Take a look at some of this inspo, and let us know what you think in the comments.

Yellow Bridesmaid Dress Inspo

Ladies, summer is here and so are its colors. During the months of June and July, I’m sure you’ve noticed an incredible amount of weddings on your timeline. That’s because it’s wedding season. If you’re a bride, that means it’s also the perfect time to capitalize on the style of dress your bridesmaids wear.  

If you’re having a summer wedding and are looking into bridesmaid dress color options, we’ve got you covered. Yellow has been on our radar for some time now, and we have yet to see a bride use it as her bridesmaid dress color. We’ll be honest, yellow is definitely a bold, statement color. But as you may know, we love when brides think out of the box with their wedding, especially when it comes to styling. What we love more is helping you with those bridal styling needs. This is why we compiled a list of our favorite yellow dresses for bridesmaids, perfect for a summer or spring wedding.

First up is an ACME dress, Privacy Please. You can find this beautiful number at Revolve. If flowy and boho is your thing, this dress is perfect for you.

Second is X NAVEN MARISSA dress NBD. You can also find this at Revolve. We’re obsessed with the slit and the cutout. It’s still very sexy but also covered up in the right places. We can totally see this gown worn at a modern, beach hotel wedding.

Third on our radar is from Fame and Partners. It is the Elisa Dress. What we love most about the Elisa dress is the high neckline and open back. High necklines are in, so stay on trend and incorporate it into your bridesmaid look.

Fourth on our list is the Verbena Dress from Reformation. It’s so boho. If you’re a bride that frequents Free People, this gown is perfect for your style. Not to mention, the off-the-shoulder, floor length dress with a ruffle-edged, slight sweetheart neckline will look great on your bridesmaids.

The final dress is also from Reformation, the Rosey Dress. This is a floor length wrap dress with a deep v neckline, is a statement. Wrap dresses are always flattering, so your bridesmaids will appreciate you for this one. We promise!

Many of these yellow gowns live in the same color pallet. What does this mean? Mixing and matching these gowns isn’t a bad idea Let us know in the comments which dress is your favorite! Be sure to email us at info@btseventmanagement.com for bridal styling inquiries.

For a more information on the themes, be sure to tune in to Episode 5. We bet there are a couple themes you could never have guessed would be included!

Brides before we send you off, on SSYP we talk about Paris Hilton’s wedding. Did you hear the Paris Hilton’s wedding may be televised? We’re so here for this.

SSYP Season2 Ep. 4 recap: How She Asked

On this week’s episode of the She Said Yes Podcast, we’re talking about the first thing you think about after getting engaged–popping the question to your bridesmaids. We were honored to have Curissa, soon-to-be Thompson, on the show to give us a rundown on how she popped the question to her best gal pals.

We know all too well that the decision on who to include in your bridal party can be a stressful one. As always, we want to make your life a little easier by helping you out with the part of the process where you ask your bridesmaids.

But before we get to our recap of what you should keep in mind when popping the question, be sure to follow us on Instagram, subscribe to our channel, and show us some love in the iTunes reviews.

As some of you may know, Curissa’s bridesmaid proposal went viral. For those of you who don’t know, check out her Instagram and see the recap, it’s adorable. Because everyone here at BTS was so obsessed with the way she popped the question, we brought her on the show to share the four things to consider when planning your bridesmaid proposal. Because we can’t spill all the beans here, you’ll have to listen to hear just how Curissa incorporated these four things into her bridesmaid proposal. We don’t like to leave you hanging, so in the meantime, these are the four things to keep in mind when popping the question:

  1. Find a theme and get creative.
  2. Figure out the element of surprise.
  3. Personalize the proposal. Let everyone know why you want them in the bridal party.
  4. Document the moment with a photographer or videographer.

Brides, before we send you off, here’s one tidbit of advice. Make this proposal about your bridesmaids. Thank them in advance for being part of your day and part of this huge journey you’re about to embark on. The supportive role these ladies will take on is a huge one, so helping them realize this will be beneficial to you and your sanity in the long run.

After you listen, let us know what you think about this week’s episode in the comments and what kind of proposal inspiration this episode gave you.

 

XOXO,

BTS
