There is something other than strapless available in bridesmaid dresses! The top necklines for this summer are neither strapless nor spaghetti strap, but bold halter and one shoulder necklines. Asymmetry is very popular, as are fluid fabrics like chiffon, organza, and charmeuse. If there is one clear trend for bridesmaid dresses for the summer of 2012 it is fresh modernity. These are bridesmaid dresses for the stylish contemporary woman who just happens to be in a wedding party.
If the style of your wedding is city chic, then a one shoulder silhouette will be ideal for your bridal party. This design is now being offered by most of the bridesmaid dress designers, in every price point. For a formal evening wedding, opt for a floor length one-shoulder prom dress in gathered chiffon. In the daytime, a knee length style will be more summery and light, especially in a popular color for 2012 like periwinkle blue. The elegance of the one shoulder gown also looks lovely when interpreted in glamorous silk charmeuse, but only for indoor weddings. Since the neckline does not allow for a necklace, look for sets of bridesmaid jewelry with a dangly pair of earrings and a couple of bracelets to stack.
Ruffles are very romantic, and are a big trend in dresses across the fashion spectrum this season. Bridesmaid dresses with ruffled necklines are available in all of the different necklines, from V-neck to strapless to spaghetti strap to one shoulder. This is a romantic style which would suit almost any wedding. For a daytime wedding, dare to choose a yellow bridesmaid dress with a chiffon ruffle at the neckline. Or select a more subtle color like pale shell pink and give it pizazz with a more dramatically ruffled bodice. The charming nature of ruffled dresses is enhanced by sets of bridesmaid jewelry with a romantic or vintage flavor, such as pearl and crystal pendant and earring sets.
The halter neckline is a fairly versatile one. It is being shown in bridesmaid dresses which run the gamut from tailored shantung styles to sexier flowing silks. One of the more intriguing designs is tailored shantung in a two-tone design. The bodice of the halter dress is one color, and the skirt portion a contrasting color. This is an interesting option, as it would allow for a lot of customization within the dress, and also adds a graphic punch to your attendants' attire.
All these stunning bridesmaid dresses are available on China wholesale online stores. The prices are so reasonable and you are unnecessary to worry about the quality.
