For hundreds of years it’s been tradition for brides to have their girl squad with them on their big day in a bridesmaid tribe. They plan the hen do, hold the tissues and laugh at the bad jokes in the groom’s speech. Bridesmaids' fashion has changed vastly, so we spoke to two of our favourite bridesmaid brands to find out about their favourite designs. From short to full length, jumpsuits, matching to mixed we’ve got them covered- oh and we also know a thing or two about matching shoes ;)
Rewritten are a London based dress company catering to the cool bridesmaids who want something a little bit different.
Their goal is to create contemporary gowns you can wear again. Katie, Co-founder of the brand gives us in in-sight to her personal favourite dress:
'We love the Mykonos dress in Chianti. It feels so gorgeous to wear, with the cold shoulder design giving it a bohemian edge. The chianti colour is a real favourite as well, the ultimate red wine friendly colour'.
This beautiful gown is really complimented by our Floriana shoe in metallic pewter leather, lengthening the leg and changing the posture. Sadly Floriana are no longer available on our website but you can find a similar style here.
Or you could chose Gigi in silver as shown here, perfect bridesmaids shoes- especially for this colour gown!
They also do the most flattering jumpsuits which we love- so chic.
To Have & To Hold Bridesmaid is another bridesmaid brand we lust over! Their elegant chic gowns use layers of fabric, scooped necklines and feminine silhouettes.
We spoke to Louie from TH&TH who told us a bit about the brand:
'We just love designing sophisticated and elegant gowns. The kind of gowns that wouldn't look out of place at the grandest of palaces...'
...'We have searched high and low for the most exquisite laces, chiffons, crepes and tulles that create the foundation of TH&TH.'- Louie, To Have & To Hold.
We love these pastel colours, perfect for a summer wedding. These dresses are paired with the beautiful Gabriella shoe in blush, as the colour compliments the soft tones perfectly.
They also do non-tradition bridal gowns like this beautiful blue lace dress- an amazing take on your 'something blue'. This gorgeous bride is wearing Darcie in Rose Gold- unfortunately this is a discontinued style but you can pair this gown with Mimosa Nude with accents of rose gold for a modern style.
'The TH&TH brand takes inspiration from timeless style of bygone eras and fuses it with modern bridal fashion, to create effortless and wearable modern gowns.'
So however you style your bridesmaids make sure they are comfy and fabulous in the ultimate versatile Rachel Simpson shoes... oh and they might just want to wear them again after your big day.. and again.. oh and again.. You can check out even more occasionwear shoes here.
