While many brides choose to dress their best girlfriends in bridesmaid dresses featuring pastel shades, blush tones, and even all-white ensembles, there's something mesmerizing about a metallic bridesmaid gown. Sparkling sequin dresses are popular for New Year's Eve weddings and they've also become quite common for a wide range of other celebration styles – from indoor fall fêtes to summer destination weddings.
If you want to add a bit of sparkle to your wedding day without incorporating sequined linens, this is a simple way to add shimmer to the décor – without it actually being a part of your design motif. Style 'maids in matching gold or silver sequin frocks or let your favorite ladies choose their own glistening gowns in a similar color palette to create a cohesive mismatched look. If you don't want bridesmaids to sparkle too much, choose dresses featuring a metallic bodice and solid skirt or select a style showcasing beaded embroidery.
