Gone are the days of dressing your bridesmaids in the most hideous dress you can find just to make you look that much better. There are endless options of gorgeous dresses at every price point on the market to suit the most formal of black tie affairs, to fun and casual, easy breezy weddings. Dressing your maids can be tricky—different body types, countless opinions, yes to this color, no to that style… Do you let them pick their own dress? Do you want them to look the same? Dressing your girls can be one of the most daunting tasks.
But take a cue from Aileen and her Maids of Style, who chose a flattering to all body types skirt from the very reasonably priced J Crew and let each girl style it to their personal taste by choosing their own top. Although they all looked different, the look was tied together with their matching coral skirts, coordinating peach tops, and custom designed bird cage bouquets—the ultimate accessory. This look was perfect for the light and airy Wine Country Wedding which Jimmy and Aileen were after.
