There's a picture in the summer issue InStyle Weddings of Bill Rancic and Giuliana dePandi's Italian wedding of her maid of honor and her bridesmaids.
Guliana's maid of honor, her sister, is wearing this stunning canary yellow Oscar de la Renta dress and her bridesmaids are wearing complimentary colored dresses by BCBG.
Now this got me thinking - what a great way to update that staid bridal party look. I love the mix of designer and mid-priced to create the look because everyone looks like a million dollars.
Your Maid of Honor: she's your dearest friend, your beloved sister, your go-to-gal. Honor her by dressing her in something fabulous and having her stand out a little at your wedding.
With so many color options available to brides and her bridal party, and non-traditional wedding designers creating some gorgeous frocks, you'd be hard press not to find something. Happy shopping!
