What do we love most about Alfred Sung’s bridesmaids’ dresses? They’re structured without being too structured. They’ll create beautiful silhouettes without making your bridesmaids feel like they’re being held together with boning and straps.
If you feel like some of Alfred Sung’s dresses have a very Mad Men feel, you’re right. They take their inspiration from glamorous evening gowns from the 1950s and ’60s.
Some of the dresses in this collection have a little bit less structure and a little bit more flow. Our favorites of these are the Greek-inspired goddess dresses. We love the short and long versions.
Whether you’re having an afternoon garden wedding or a formal affair in the evening, these are perfect for your bridesmaids, if you want a classic, yet somewhat free-form, style for your wedding.
When you’re choosing your bridesmaids’ dresses, we always recommend that you think about what you would want to wear, if you were in their shoes. After all, you might be in their shoes one day soon.
Don’t pick dresses that you think will make you stand out in your wedding dress. Trust us, everyone will already be looking at you. Instead, pick something that you would absolutely love to wear and that you’d want to wear again. When you do this, it’s like you’re giving your friends a second bridesmaid gift, the gift of dresses that they can wear over and over again and feel totally flirty, gorgeous, and glamorous.
Of all of the Alfred Sung bridesmaids’ dresses, this strapless, structured, 1950s cocktail inspiration is probably our favorite. We love that it dances between being playful and formal. It’s young without being too young, sexy without being too revealing, and it’s metallic fabric will look amazing on any skin tone.
Remember, you chose your closest friends carefully. Now choose their dresses carefully, too. You can’t go wrong with Alfred Sung.
