Our favorite blogshops with the best bridesmaid dresses

For many ladies out there, online fashion boutiques have become a staple source of retail therapy nowadays. And it’s not just limited to casual wear or office attire, many blogshops now cater to the need for exquisite bridesmaid wear that go easy on the wallet.

For those who are looking beyond the usual offering of the highly versatile multi-way dress – that may not be flattering for all shapes and sizes (we know cos we’ve been through it!) – be assured to know that there will definitely be one that suits your liking here in our selection.

Love Bonito
The fashion site that may well be Singapore’s most established online boutique rolled out its latest bridesmaid collection earlier this month. Inspired by some of the world’s finest and most iconic cities, these stylish pieces can be worn for both the wedding and still be appropriate for an after-party!

Our picks: The Grecian-inspired “Tatiane Maxi” retailing at $38 is a darling piece for the wedding banquet. For those who prefer shorter lengths, there’s the knee-length version featuring the same design at the top.

We also love the “Covet Juliette Dress” with elaborate embroidery design in 5 different colors.

Chaceylove
Its bridesmaid collection may be new but Chaceylove is no doubt nailing the sweet girlish look with near perfection. If flowy dresses in dreamy hues are your style, then look no further. An additional plus point: this site also sells gorgeous floral pins and crowns!

Our pick: There’s perhaps a reason why this “Elsa Dress” had to be restocked. In a simple yet classic flowy design matched with a detachable duo-tone sash, this chiffon piece is a piece that won’t go wrong at weddings.

For the bride looking for an ethereal look, this “Floral crown” may just be your best accessory.

Klarra, Love & Bravery
Apart from the above two with specialized bridesmaid collections, it’s always great to widen your search to include other sites which may not have customized bridesmaid wear as of yet but still offer dresses that will fit weddings to a T.

Our picks: The “Crochet Dress” by Klarra.

As well as this sweet lace number by Love & Bravery which was recently worn as a bridesmaid piece at the wedding of one of the boutique’s co-founder.

In many ways, French designer Elise Hameau’s creations are every bit what you would have envisioned about the City of Romance — beautiful, whimsical, and absolutely dreamy; browsing through the designer’s 2014 collection was just so much love.

A graduate from Studio Berçot, Elise Hameau started her career in fashion journalism. It was only in 2011 when she helped her friend make her wedding dress that she began to look into designing again. Listing the 1920s and 1970s as two big sources of her inspiration, Elise Hameau’s pieces are resplendent in their old world charm, what with flowing silhouettes and delicate fabrics. We love how each dress is gorgeous, but at the same time, extremely wearable for the bride. In Elise Hameau’s words, “The essence of the bride’s personality must shine through; everything else is merely detail.”

Apart from her bridal collection, Elise Hameau also has a stunning accessories collection consisting of hair combs, flower crowns, and so on. If you just have a couple of minutes to spare, browsing through the label’s beautiful lookbook is a visual treat in itself.

Kim Kardashian played it elegant and classy with a Givenchy haute couture creation by good friend Riccardo Tisci. While the dress is covered up in general, it cleverly highlights Kim’s fabulous curves through triangular cut-outs and a belt at the waist. The sexy back which emphasises the reality star’s voluptuous booty, paired with a cathedral veil also adds drama to the dress!

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West spared no expenses in hosting their guests — 600 of their closest friends attended the rehearsal dinner, which was held at the Palace of Versailles in Paris, complete with a carriage tour of the grounds, serenade by Lana del Ray, and magic tricks by David Blaine in the Hall of Mirrors. For the main event, the couple flew guests to Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy where they exchanged vows!

Steal the look of… Kelly Rowland

On our blog, we often share inspirations about how to make your big day closer to perfection. We also absolutely love sharing happy news about celebrities and/or famous personalities who have tied the knot and moved on to the next stage in life.

And on the list of famous newlyweds this month is Kelly Rowland, one-third of American girl group Destiny’s Child. (If you missed our entry on that, click here!)

The look: Pictures of the low-key wedding are limited and all we know is that Rowland went with an all-white gown with a V-neck design.

Make it yours: An all-white gown may be the safest bet for brides who wish to go with traditions but to those who say the pristine shade is boring, let us prove you wrong.
