There's something so undeniably elegant about a long, floor-sweeping dress. That's probably why so many brides-to-be are choosing long bridesmaid dresses for their wedding party. Next to that very special white dress, a wall of billowing color creates a lovely vignette — and great photographs.
We know not every bride can splurge on her wedding. Some will pay for the bridesmaid dresses for their chosen party, while others request their 'maids purchase the dress themselves. Either way, everyone wins when the dresses are affordable.
We recommend skipping bridal shops and traditional dresses altogether. Try searching for maxi and evening dresses from your favorite online retailers like Shopbop, ASOS, Nordstrom and Bloomingdale's. One idea is to select a color or color family that you would like your long bridesmaid dresses to be, and then allowing each woman in your bridal party to find a dress that flatters her figure. That way you almost guarantee that she will like the dress as much as you do.
