If “bridesmaid dress grievances” were a Family Feud question, the top five survey responses would include cashing out only to never wear the dress again, an unflattering fit, and having no say in the matter. It’s safe to say that everyone has finally received the memo that one-size-fits-all bridesmaid dresses do not need to be the norm and that our friends simply deserve more.
To get the lowdown on better options for brides and their best friends, I spoke with Bhldn’s general merchandising manager, Lori Conley, to get her expert opinion on the bridesmaid dress trends that we’re actually excited to wear in 2022. The continuous thread running through all the trends is more consideration for bridesmaids’ budgets and individual styles on the big day. We all want to still be friends after this!
