It’s no news that white bridesmaid dresses are back in the forefront and that we may just have Kate Middleton’s sister Pippa to thank for it! Ever since the royal wedding, there have been several ‘Catherine’ dress replicas showing up everywhere as many brides looked to dress like the Duchess of Cambridge. But one dress that is steadily catching on with bridal trends is the Duchess’s socialite sister’s dress which she wore at the Duchess’s April, 2011 nuptial. Pippa’s white Alexander McQueen gown, designed by Sarah Burton, caused worldwide hysteria and continues to catch on with many brides and bridesmaids alike. Sarah Burton’s team at Alexander McQueen finished off the figure flattering dress with a line of silk-covered buttons that went right down Pippa’s spine. Do brides now like this dress so much that they have turned it from taboo to a trend? Here are just a few tips on how to go with this trend without losing your identity as the bride on your big day.
White dresses in different styles give each bridesmaid a unique look while the color and elements of lace join each to the bride.
White bridesmaids dresses that are the same style keep with the modern tradition but remain simple enough not to outshine the bride. Different shades of white and ivory add a more modern touch to bridesmaids dresses.
