Oh how we adore lace bridesmaids dresses.

Watters was one of our first designers to offer gorgeous lace options for bridesmaids, and we cannot get enough. From floor length and classic to short and sassy, Watters definitely does lace right. These gorgeous blush dresses will be arriving in-store over the coming months, so be sure to keep up with our Facebook and Instagram feeds for all the latest!

L&I Girls: Ivory Bridesmaids

We thought it only fitting to share Ashley’s wedding day with you today, just a few days after New Year’s, because that sparkly Jenny Packham wedding dress is just so… sparkly!

To complement her gorgeous (and did we mention sparkly?) wedding gown, Ashley chose soft ivory chiffon for her bridesmaids, and then let them choose the dress. We love the combination of styles that each fit her bridesmaids personalities so perfectly!

L&I Girls: Champagne Bridesmaids at Sundance Resort

Dunja knew exactly what she wanted in bridesmaids dresses for her Sundance, Utah wedding.

And we certainly can’t fault her taste! To complement her stunning Vera Wang wedding dress from Alta Moda Bridal, Dunja chose Amsale bridesmaid dresses in floor length champagne chiffon. We love the way the soft color plays off the ivory of her dress, and the white flowers just pop in comparison!

Aren’t Dunja and her cute new husband just the cutest thing ever?!

This Just In: More Watters Lace Bridesmaids

We’ve been waiting for this gorgeous lace bridesmaids dress to arrive, and now finally she has!

We are suckers for a classic little black dress, of course, but isn’t a little navy dress the next best thing?? The deep V front and open keyhole back give this dress an element of drama that we just cannot get enough of. Whether you’re a bridesmaid, a guest, or a super classy mother of the bride, this dress is pretty much perfect.

L&I Girls: Honeysuckle Stunners at Snowbird

Amy was the cutest little bride. We absolutely adored working with her, and with all her cute bridesmaids!

This cute bride saw a photo of one of our dresses in “honeysuckle” by Aria on our Instagram feed, and instantly fell in love. She knew exactly what she wanted, and all her bridesmaids had to do was decide which style they each wanted. (We just love a bride who knows what she wants!)

And her vision came together perfectly! The bridesmaids each wore a different style from one of our favorite designers, Aria, all in their beautifully rich coral, called “honeysuckle.”

We absolutely love how well all the Aria dresses look together, because it gives bridesmaids the freedom to choose a style that works well for them while still adhering to the overall look the bride wants.

Amy’s beautiful wedding took place at Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort just outside of Salt Lake City, and was photographed by Pier 23 Photography.
