As you can imagine, we see a lot of different short formal dress styles and short bridal party dress styles leave our doors here at the Shoppe, and we do try to remain impartial, but there are always a few we love a little more than others. Our VP of Retail Operations, Carolyn Taylor, is going to share her favorite Alfred Angelo bridesmaid dresses to kick off our month-long series of Friday Favorites!
Finding your favorite short formal dress is easy!
There are so many cute and flattering dresses to choose from when you’re planning your wedding. Aside from selecting your wedding dress, you have to find cute bridal party dresses too! One dress we’ve seen going out our door a lot is the above dress, Alfred Angelo 8600
. It has some of our favorite features: sweetheart neckline, straps, decorative waist detail, and soft chiffon draping. It’s available in a rainbow of colors and sizes 0-30W. Plus, it’s one of our new spring 2013 styles, which means no one has seen it in a wedding yet! You've seen our favorite. Now it's time to find yours!>>
Go a little more formal with a satin short bridal party dress.
We love chiffon here at the Shoppe. It’s flattering, breezy, and soft, but that doesn’t mean satin short bridal party dress styles are off our radar. In fact, two of our favorite Alfred Angelo bridesmaid dresses are satin. One of our top sellers is Alfred Angelo 7127
. From the ruffled bodice to the fitted skirt, this dress gives the illusion of a two-piece dress and offers your ‘maids the ability to customize their skirt color to match your wedding colors. Shown below in a classic black and white combination, this dress translates to any affair.
Why are short formal dress styles so popular?
If you’ve ever been a bridesmaid, you’ve probably heard the saying about long bridal party dresses: “You can just shorten it and wear it again.” Short formal dress styles take the additional tailoring out of the equation and just give your ‘maids a really flattering, chic style that, given the right occasion and color, can truly be worn again. Our top selling knee length dress is Alfred Angelo 7123
. We can easily see why: flattering ruching, modest neckline, waist sash, great color palette, and a full range of sizes make this a favorite by far! Check out our full collection of Alfred Angelo bridesmaid dresses today!
