Formal Dress Stylist, Born & Based In MK

It is the perspective that counts when choosing the right bridal dress for my valued clients, from flower girl and junior dresses to the selected bridesmaids.
I am used to my patrons challenging me with things like “that is not really my style” and “I would not choose that colour” — but in the end, once the bridal dress is fitted and they stand in front of the mirror — “you were right!” is what I hear the most often.

No matter who the prospective client is, we identify the best look. We have yet to see a body type or dress preference that is too hard!
We can accommodate the most challenging looks, we never say no!


Tips to consider:  Key factors such as your skin tone and hairstyle are often overlooked by some lesser Prom Dress shops.  

At MK Bride, we also take into consideration the style of the wedding you are attending, when narrowing down your bridesmaid and junior dress choices.

Bridesmaid Dress Trends

Bridesmaid dress trends change with each season as new styles hit the runway and make their way into the social scene, but the classic styles are timeless. If you are wondering which bridesmaid dress style comes out on top, there isn’t one answer.

Bridesmaid dresses are very diverse, and each design is unique. You can use this to your advantage by choosing a bridesmaid dress that incorporates current and classic prom trends.

Simplicity is a classic bridesmaid dress staple. Minimal decoration, floor-length hemlines, and solid colours are timeless elements, offering a blank canvas for you to be the artist.

Simple bridesmaid dresses tend to elicit an air of elegance with just one fabric choice and subtle, modest details.

Lace is the perfect example of a classic bridesmaid trend used in totally contemporary ways.

Not only has this soft, feminine fabric withstood the test of time, it’s back. A far cry from the traditional neck-to-hem lace looks, lace bridesmaid dresses now blend materials and design components for a truly exciting fashion statement. Today, lace adorns sheer mesh bodices, frames attention-grabbing cut outs, and lines daring racerbacks.

A two-piece bridesmaid dress might have an elegant lace bodice with a satin skirt that offers an a touch of charm to the wedding party.

Sleeves are just as classic, but rather than extending to the wrist, some current prom dresses get their flair from cute cap sleeves, romantic flutter sleeves, or seriously sultry off-the-shoulder sleeves.

Cold-shoulder sleeves highlight the arms with a little extra support and lend a distinct quality that makes a bridesmaid dress feel like one-of-a-kind.

Prints are just as relevant for flower girl and junior bridesmaid dresses, for they put individuality on the forefront. Floral patterns stun in bright shades that match the theme of the bridal party, for a lovely contrast. Ombre is another on-point use of colours, putting the focus on certain sections of a flower girl dress with a modern twist.

When it comes to current bridesmaid dresses though, it’s also important to address the cut. 

Weddings are an elegant affair, and open-backs and cut outs are striking elements that bring a bit of flair to the wedding party without upstaging the bride.

Current, classic, or somewhere in-between, the best bridesmaid dress depends upon the person donning it.

Everyone’s a little different, and of course juniors, flowergirls, and bridesmaid dress styles aren’t stationary, so the perfect dress might incorporate a range of features. No matter what, choosing a bridal dress should be fun, so feel free to get creative exploring all these trends at MK Bride today!
