Having a late afternoon wedding that's moving on until evening? Want your maids to look fabulous both day and night?
Then how about dressing them in oyster and black shades?
Oyster is sophisticated, elegant and slightly less strident than a pure monochrome of black and white. It's a stunning dress colour that works well in all seasons - from winter through to summer wedding days.
Choose a plain oyster dress for your maids from Dessy in either a short or long style or mix it up with a black bodice, sash or lace detail. (The beauty of Dessy dresses is that you get to choose the colourways YOU want.)
These frocks all work beautifully for bridesmaids and yet ... they don't scream 'bridesmaid' in the way that a pink ruffled dress would. Meaning that your maids will want to wear them over and over again at posh events in the future.
Choose a style to suit each girl (you'll find some tips here) and be prepared for the compliments to flow in ...
