But what often surprises us more is when a beloved brand that we’ve known for decades launches collection after collection that tops the last! A designer we can always rely on for ‘wow’ moments like this is After Six! I’ve decided it was time to dive into this hard-to-beat designer and shows off my 10 favorite After Six bridesmaid dresses. Ready to be blown away?
6646 Georgette is one of those fabrics that holds it shape without being heavy, and we love how After Six has designed and detailed this sheath silhouette. The one shoulder neckline adds a sense of glamour, while the gathered bodice adds just the right amount of texture. Simply stunning!
6712 If you’re looking for a gown that will flatter every petite ‘maid and curvy girl in your bridal party, this is it. Pleated accents in chiffon lend a bit of vintage-inspired class, while wide tank straps let you wear it with your favorite bra. A gathered band at the natural waistline makes this design perfect for women of all shapes and sizes.
6678 Perfectly pleated and finished with a sash at the waist, this strapless gown works for virtually any wedding. A destination wedding on the beach…a lavish affair in a grand hotel…a boho-chic garden celebration…the effortless ease of this design allows every ‘maid to walk, party, and pose with grace.
6673 Perfect for a traditional wedding or a black tie event, this satin gown is one of our absolute favorites. Simply styled with a sweetheart neckline and a straight back, this design features seamed detailing at the hips that follows and flatters the natural curves of a woman’s body. It’s nearly impossible not to feel gorgeous and glamorous in this look!
6716 As with most of our favorite designs, it’s the subtle details that draw us in and capture our heart. This gown, in nu-georgette fabric with a flattering A-line skirt, features a high neckline with a halter-inspired twist at the neck, a pleated bodice, and a cut-out back that exudes contemporary charm. This style can easily be hemmed to the knee and worn again when the wedding is over—dare we say we think we’ve found our favorite new little black dress?
6666 There are some attendant dresses you say you’ll wear again, and then there are the ones—like this—that you actually do. In soft chiffon with a cowl neck and a blouson bodice, this is the style we’re taking to the tailor as soon as the wedding is over. Hem it to the knee and all of a sudden the dress you never planned to wear again is going to find itself in heavy rotation in your wardrobe.
6727 We can’t say enough how much we appreciate a bra-friendly design, and this gown proves that you’ll never have to sacrifice style for comfort. In lux chiffon fabric, this A-line design is beautifully detailed with wide tank straps, pleated accents, and a V-back that makes it look simply gorgeous from every angle.
