Where to Find Unique Bridesmaid Dresses

Sydne Style - Los Angeles Fashion writer and People StyleWatch contributor Sydne Summer talks about where to find unique and lovely bridesmaid dresses.A huge wedding trend right now for bridesmaids dresses is for everyone to wear a different dress in the same color palette. There are a bunch of lines that make different styles in the same color: J. Crew, Ann Taylor and an assortment of designers carried at Nordstrom. But my best friend, who got married the other weekend, wanted each bridesmaid dress to be completely unique. As her maid-of-honor, I helped her bring her vision to life.

We had to find six completely different bridesmaid dresses (linked above) in a silver and gray color palette. The first few, we found at more traditional bridesmaid stores online.Β I got mine at an Australian company, Fame & Partners, who creates customizable dresses (they’re having a sitewide 20% off sale today!). You might remember this white maxi dress I wore from the label over the summer.

Sydne Style gives tips on where to buy bridesmaid dresses onlineSince my friend was getting married in Malibu, I wanted something flowy. I fell in love with the Valerie dress, which reminded me of the Gucci gown Blake Lively wore at Cannes last year. I ordered it as is. But there are a ton of colors to choose from, and you can make the dress your own by changing the style and altering the design with different straps and lengths. The dress arrived super quickly and I didn’t even have to alter it! And itΒ made such a statement on it’s own that I wasn’t even stressed when I arrived in MalibuΒ and realized I forgot my jewelry at home!

My friend got married at Malibu Rocky Oaks, which is a vineyard overlooking the hills of Los Angeles. The ceremony took place on a helipad! It was such a unique venue in Southern California and the bridesmaid dresses worked perfectly. You can see more pics of the wedding over on my Instagram {@sydnesummer}.
