There’s nothing like sequins to say modern glamour! Fabulous matte metallics and chic structured dresses are the perfect picks for a bridal party with modern day style. Sheath dresses dripping in sequins or deconstructed lace gowns will add some serious romance to a simple silhouette. Keep hair sleek, jewelry oversized, and blooms simple to complement the full on sparkle!

This summer’s biggest trend has been bridesmaids in coordinating but individual gowns, blouson, draped, and shimmering. The go-to designer for the ultimate bohemian glam bridal style has to be Adrianna Papell! Her signature column gowns feature sparkling embellishments and layers of filmy chiffon. Hand-tied bouquets with lush blooms and verdant greenery and loose, wavy hair perfectly complement this ultra romantic style.

The Gatsby trend is winding down, but bridal parties are still going full-force vintage glam. Column gowns in glittering patterns and vintage cocktail dresses beautifully evoke the Jazz Age, along with romantic curls, and delicate jewelry. Matte red lips will pair gorgeously with the gold or silver sparkle!
