Guys, when did bridesmaid dresses get soooo stylish? Isn’t it the bride who’s supposed to slay on her special day? Well, thanks to a newcomer to the maid game, Birdy Grey, that school of thought is quickly getting thrown out. They sponsored this post to spotlight their newest summer 2018 collection; get ready for bridesmaids dresses that are JUST as pretty as the guest of honor’s gown, play nicely as a group, and can be worn a buuuuunchh of times after the wedding. Oh, and they sell for a pretty amaze price point, too. $99, we were never so excited to wave goodbye 💸💸💸 - this time, we’re coming out on top!
If you haven’t heard of Birdy Grey yet, it’s okay. The direct-to-consumer bridesmaid brand has only been around since Fall 2017, but it’s already spreading its wings in the wedding world. In a big way. The brand’s founder, Grace Lee, and her team recognize how huge an honor it is to be asked to be a bridesmaid, and at the same time understand that that honor comes with a sickeningly heavy price tag (on average, $165 for just the dress and it’s one-wear self). So, after processing the crushing cost-per-wear reality of modern bridal party ensems - and experiencing it firsthand (Grace has been a bridesmaid six times, NBD) - BG decided to flip the switch and deliver fresh, flattering gowns in colors that 🍾 in pictures and cost the crew a modest $99 per dress to look major.
Well, their first few seasonal launches brought us dozens of drop-dead-gorgeous dresses, in an expertly-edited variety of fabrics and colors. But their nearly-here dose of summer 2018 styling is coming with 30+ brand-spanking-new gowns, including a couple super-cute convertible choices that go wayyyy beyond the dated jersey convertibles that the industry has cranked out over the years. Think tulle, mesh AND chiffon multi-wearables that can seriously outfit the whole group in one shot. If your MOH likes a simple strapless sitch, then let her have it! If your bestie from college likes a halter to make her boobs look nice and perky👌, then so be it! And if your cousin just a babe and she’s not exactly living her best life in her new mama bod ((YET)), then help her out with a floaty-flowy frock (and we mean nothing by using that word!) and let her play with some sleeves.
Each dress comes with a complimentary pack of safety pins, bobby pins and double-sided fashion tape, too, so those wedding day-of disasters don’t have to be a total hot mess 🙌
Let’s talk about that perfect palette - because the Birdy Grey girls have said this collection is their prettiest yet….
Brides and their tribes have a trendy AF range of hues to select from, and everything is mix and matchable. The dresses legit come in complementary color combos to ensure the lineup looks cohesive - so whether your shade story is flushed by cosmetic neutrals: blushes, mauves, creams, taupes, and champagnes, or a little more wine-spired (pinot noir, cabernet, and other grape/purple pops of color), you can feel confident knowing that your group will be looking SO GOOD as they stride down the aisle.
And the part about Birdy Grey that makes us all want to tap this nest for our nuptials?
