Peacock Bridesmaid’s Looks!

Creating the perfect peacock ensemble for a bridal party has never been so fun!  As modern brides start pulling away from traditions like all-matching bridesmaid’s dresses and black simple suits, it allows a newer market of young and fun bridal party attire to make it’s debut!  Modern brides love using different styles for each bridesmaid dress.  Finally, brides are considering their bridesmaids and letting them select a figure flattering dress that is as unique as they are!  When done right, this idea of mismatched dresses coming together can create a beautiful wedding party.  Using one of our favorite bridal attire designers, Jim Hjelm, we put together some unique bridesmaid looks inspired by this month’s theme: peacocks!

When you are creating a collage of gorgeous dresses there are many ways to do it!  One simple way to make sure all your dresses look great together is by sticking to one length and one fabric!  This dress combination is inspired by peacock feathers and the metallic hue they have.  Also, the common trait of a black accent on each ties the whole look together.   By having two dresses in the same color and two dresses in accent colors all with different necklines, it really emphasizes a fashionable approach to dressing your bridesmaids!

Bolder peacock hues and a burst of volume make these mismatching bridesmaid dresses strike a cord together.   What makes these dresses mesh?  Each dress is above the knee with a similar shine and fabric in different jeweled tones.  Also, each dress has a different section of volume to give your girls that extra pop!  These dresses are sure to give your wedding a unique yet fashionable twist.

Two colors, four amazing Jim Hjelm dresses.  This is a simpler color palette for a peacock wedding but what it pulls from the theme is drama.  Each dress is distinctive and dramatic ensuring you to have four stunning bridesmaids!  The length lends a sense of formality.  Not to mention, the length would help keep your girls warm during the cold winter month of January!  Since these dresses are so dramatic, sticking to two necklines and simple up-dos will really let the dress speak for itself.

Don’t forget that here at Trends to Traditions, we are available to order any of the Jim Hjelm Occasion dresses! Mention this blog post to receive 10% off your order. If you are interested in ordering one of his dresses, call us at 412-267-2108.
