15 Gorgeous Bridesmaid Dresses (that aren’t from a bridal store!)

Are you stressing out over choosing a bridesmaid dress that all of your besties will love? You are not alone. Shopping with so many ladies is a tricky situation that involves different personal styles, body issues, budgets and the hierarchy of friends. It is really tough for brides to find a dress that they love and that their bridesmaids will be happy and confident in. We’ve provided you with tips on coordinating mismatched dresses, but today we want to show you dresses that are not traditional bridesmaid dresses – but will perform beautifully (and they may even wear them again!)

The designer whose dresses we are looking at today is available in most department stores. She has designed a gorgeous line of dresses that fit most personal styles, body types, and more importantly budgets. The brand is Adrianna Papell. Described as “sophisticated, alluring, and chic,” these dresses will live up to your high standards for bridesmaid apparel.

Summer brides often choose short and flirty dresses to keep their bridesmaid cool and cute under the sunshine. These dresses are perfect for a lush, garden wedding that is full of color and sweet romance. Lace is a great choice for spring weddings with silhouettes ranging from sheaths to fit and flares.

Brides who are looking for something a bit more glamorous, also have plenty of choices. Adrianne Papell has a complete line of floor length gowns dripping in beads and sequins. Your bridesmaids will accent the luxurious, decadence of your theme. To keep yourself in the spotlight and to have your bridesmaids looking elegant rather than prom-ready, choose a beaded gown that is neutral or subdued in color.
