Red Carpet Takeaways

Awards season is sadly over, but there were a lot of exciting and beautiful dresses to keep us satisfied until next year. Here are some key trends we noticed that easily translate into bridesmaid fashion.

1. Sexy halters

The halter is quite the chameleon neckline with so many different looks to choose from! It can be conservative, a little daring, or just plain sweet. Check out our entire halter collection here.

2. Classic Two-tone

Black and white will always be the most popular choice, but don't be afraid to try some other combos!

3. Subtle Nudes

The nude and blush color palette is still going strong. Luckily our designers love it too! Playing with the texture of the fabric or adding embellishments will keep it eye-catching if you want to add a little flair.

4. Plunging (or soft) V-necks.

Strapless will always be a traditional cut, but it's nice knowing it's not the norm anymore. There are plenty of other ways to show some skin or just feel comfortable knowing that you don't have to constantly pull your dress up to stay decent!

Have fun incorporating these looks into your bridal party!

Real Weddings: Amanda & Jiaan

Amanda and Jiaan's dreamy photos are the perfect springboard into Valentine's Day weekend! Taking place at Los Altos History Museum, their wedding had a touch of bohemian, rustic backyard, and enchanted fairytale all rolled into a perfect celebration.

Amanda's favorite part of planning was attending the dinner and cake tastings. On the wedding day, she loved sitting back, seeing all of our guests enjoying themselves and feeling that all of their hard work and planning had paid off.

The bridesmaids wore light purple dresses by Landa Designs and Flounce.

What I loved about the Joielle experience was that I could find dresses for bridesmaids of all different body types that were flattering. Using a different style by the same designer made it easy for them to personalize their dresses.

Thank you Amanda and Jiaan for sharing your special day with us. Best wishes to a bright and magical marriage ahead!
