..some of the best in bridesmaid dresses for 2010


Bridesmaid dresses in black will be very popular for 2010. The advantages of wearing black is that

  • it suits most skin types and is the most flattering of colours regardless of body shape.
  • Since the economic downturn, black has become a popular colour mainly because it can be worn time and again making it a perfect colour choice for brides that want to give their girls something that won't end up at the back of the closet.
  • If black is too severe for you, other monotone shades like grey and brown are very "in" too.

Cocktail dresses

Short dresses are in style for bridesmaids in 2010. For reasons pertaining again to the economy, short styles are usually less expensive and they offer the bridesmaid more opportunities to wear the dress again.

Just as asymmetrical bridal gowns are very popular in 2010, so are their bridesmaid counterparts. Off the shoulder dresses offer a sleek modern look with a hint of sex appeal. If the bride is also wearing a one shoulder design the continuity will look smashing!

Sleeveless dresses paired with a shawl will continue to dominate bridesmaid dresses for yet another year. If it fits, why change it?

Mismatched Dresses

(like in the top photo, above, at the beginning of the article) This is a fairly new trend for 2010 but it is one that has captured lots of brides' attention. Basically, the bride chooses the bridesmaid dress colour but allows each bridesmaid to choose her own style dress. This ensures that everyone has a dress that matches their body, personality, and taste. No unhappy bridesmaids here.
