Last week my workday at a wedding location ended with me bumping into a wedding photographer, after struggling to get past a white limo that was blocking my way. It was that moment I realized that the wedding season had begun. The blushing bride wore a pearly white gown and dreamily gazed into her partners eyes, while the wedding photographer clicked away like a paparazzo. Romance filled the air and I started visualizing my own wedding (like every hopeless romantic does every now and then). I wondered…what would my bridesmaids be wearing on my big day? I know there is a code that says ‘a bridesmaid should never look more beautiful than the bride’, which some brides tend to take a little too serious. You want your bridesmaids to compliment your bridal look, not have them surround you in a pile of petticoat! Fashion brand Virgos Lounge has set a positive new wedding trend. Move over plain, pastel evening gowns…HELLO fashion forward maxi/mini dresses!
Virgos Lounge: Vintage inspired clothing with a modern edge
‘The Bridesmaid Edit’ is a beautiful bridal themed shoot, which features (bridesmaids) dresses by Virgos Lounge. If only Katherine Heigl’s brides would have thought of this, Katherine would have had a wardrobe filled with fashionable items instead of one filled with 27 fashion disasters (referring to the film 27 Dresses). I’ve chosen 5 of my favorite gowns to feature in the gallery. Gowns you can select for your beautiful bridesmaids or wear to any fancy event. My favorite is image nr. 5 from the gallery which is a cute cocktail dress with silver sequins. The cowl back gives it a sexy edge, it reminds me of a 20’s style gown. This one is a bridesmaid must have! Another favorite is the Jayne maxi-dress in purple. This dress is a great option when you want to wear a maxi dress AND show off your high heels at the same time, because it has a sexy thigh high split. A romantic option is the Kelly mini dress that comes in a beautiful peachy/coral color, decorated with gold embroidery. Make sure you visit virgoslounge.com to see the full bridesmaid edit and to shop these affordable items (tip: don’t forget to check out the sale items).
