There are a lot of details when it comes to planning a wedding - choosing bridesmaid dresses is just one of many. For Sally's upcoming wedding (in April!), Molly has tried on just a few dresses that would be considered for the 'maids on the big day. What makes the selecting difficult is wanting to choose a style that will flatter each lady in the wedding party. When BHLDN asked us to test drive their Annabelle Dress by Jenny Yoo we of course said yes as we're still determining what the bridesmaids will be wearing and we love that the already gorgeous sweetheart-style gown can be tied and styled in more than eight ways - making it easy for each lovely lady to personalize her gown. We put together a little video of styling the dress so keep reading to check it out!
There’s a BHLDN boutique location in Houston (if you live close by you must go – it’s such an experience!) that we were hoping to visit for the trying on but logistics got in the way so the store sent the Annabelle and all kinds of accessories our way for a intimate try on session. Getting to play with the ties that blend into the skirt was a pretty fun bride + maid-of-honor activity. One thing Sally did know when first starting to look for dresses was that she wants something long…even though the wedding isn’t black tie, long dresses always look so gorgeous in photos and since the hem lines all hit the floor, the look is consistent among the various heights of the girls. So the Annabelle Dress already appealed to us with its long length and layers of luxe but soft and light tulle.
Bridesmaid dresses can get a bad reputation for being “never wear again” pieces but after seeing all that the Annabelle can do – not to mention all the colors it’s available in – we’re convinced that any girl would want to pull this out of her closet for more wearing past the wedding day!
