Bridesmaids Style Goes Beyond the Wedding Day

More than ever before, bridesmaid dresses mirror the best trends from the fashion runways and red carpets. The dress, in fact, is one of the season's most appealing fashion statements, and both the bride and her attendants will delight in the selection. Whether sleeveless, off-the-shoulder, slip dress or two-piece dress, there's a look to suit every taste and to highlight the best features of each member of the bridal party.

Bridesmaids are very much in style. While the bride, naturally, takes center stage and is the star of that special day, elegant bridesmaids dresses complement the bride's gown, as well as enhance the unique wedding décor.

Post-wedding perfect. "The key for bridesmaids is to keep it simple and easy to wear," says Vivian Diamond, designer of the Dessy Collection. Today's bridesmaid's dresses are a modern wear-again part of a wardrobe and have a post-wedding life perfect for a number of future dressed-up events.

Long chiffon dresses are one of the season's most graceful looks, featured prominently in the Dessy collection in soft, fluid chiffon, georgette, crepe, lace and satin. Also alluring are the Dessy dresses with circle skirts and form fitting trumpet skirts, which bring a certain charm to the aisle and to the dance floor.

Strapless is no longer the most popular option. Plunging V necklines, off the shoulder and halter styles take the lead in all the Dessy Group collections in a variety of flattering lengths, rich fabrics and stunning tones. And Lela Rose Bridesmaid focuses on clean modern lines that translate well to wearing again and again...

Mix and match styles. Versatility and individuality are major considerations. Many brides are opting to have their attendants wear styles in the same fabrics, colors or various shades of a certain color flattering to each person. The Dessy Collection features separates that are a popular alternative to the dress. This allows each maid to mix and match tops and skirts and purchase each in appropriate sizes.

Infinite color options. Color is another standout fashion message, with the palette ranging from luscious pales to vibrant hues. Dessy's Vivian Diamond explains, "We're seeing lots of pink, pale and vivid, pink is a definite choice." Chiffon, the most popular fabric, shows color beautifully, especially the neutral colors like blush, cameo, palomino, oyster and ivory. Burgundy, ruby, bordeaux are now taking lead for the fall and winter months.

There are no set rules for bridesmaid's dresses - just a great variety of choices and styles that really can be worn again and again! Read less

BEWARE. INCREDIBLY AWFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE. DO NOT BUY FROM HERE. If I could give Dessy 0 stars I would. I purchased 9 Jenny Yoo bridesmaid dresses from Dessy (as my bridesmaids live in all different spots and I thought this was a great solution). This totaled a little under $2,000 dollars. I had each of my maids get professionally measured, and I sent the measurements to the Dessy "size consultant" and had her tell me which sizes to purchase. So far, six of my bridesmaids have tried on their dresses CANNOT EVEN ZIP THEIR DRESSES BY SEVERAL INCHES. I have been trying to contact Dessy support for several days, as this is very clearly an issue with their sizing chart. They have been despicably unhelpful for the amount of money my girls and I spent at Dessy. They asked me to have each girl get remeasured, take photos of the dresses (individually), and send the dresses back for "inspection." Ok - so I spend >$200 per dress, pay to have my girls ship their dresses back, and then MAYBE I'll get a refund or bigger sizes? Who knows how long that will take? I have repeatedly asked to speak to someone directly on the phone to get decisive action for this issue and I have received very confused responses (emailing me back one question at a time, emailing my bridesmaid directly thinking that she was the bride). I am so disappointed. My wedding is in 4 months and these dresses took 3 months to ship, so I am running out of time to fix, which Dessy has been completely unsensitive to. I am telling everyone I know to never use Dessy.

Brides, please do not use Dessy! I'm a bridesmaid and the bride chose Dessy custom dresses for us and had us order online. Several of the bridesmaids' dresses came in several sizes too big (even though they are "custom order" and you submit measurements when ordering). Mine came in about 4-5 sizes too big and was literally falling off of me. I even had measurements made by a professional and spoke with a Dessy representative to confirm my size prior to ordering. I've spent well over $100 in alterations to try to get it to fit at all. Dessy refuses to return or exchange custom dresses, and when I told them what I had to spend in extensive alterations to fix the dress, their response was that they wouldn't help me at all because the dress had been altered. What else was I supposed to do? I couldn't return or exchange the dress, and I couldn't wear it unaltered because it was falling off of my body. Also the dress feels extremely cheap and low quality.
This was a very disappointing experience and it was unexpected. I was in a wedding just a few months ago and the bride got Dessy bridesmaid dresses through a bridal salon. That Dessy dress only needed minor alterations and was much better quality.

I have had one of the worst experiences from several Dessy stockists in NSW. One shop lady in particular was incredibly rude and I would deter any bride from using this site and would ask they actively tell others not to. Be very careful of sizing and returns. One thing I could have done without leading up to my wedding day.

Think twice if you want excellent customer service. I paid rush delivery and the dress arrived sewn incorrectly. It was as if Dessy had sewn a label into the bust of the dress, which resulted in a square looking bosom. When I emailed them, they offered to repair the dress. I'm extremely disappointed that I paid full price for a repaired dress.. Not to mention that I had to send it back with the wedding less than a month away. When I tried to ask for a new dress or compensation, they ignored the request several times. Will recommend to future brides not to use.

I would not recommend Dessy for bridesmaid dresses. As a bridesmaid I ordered a dress from Dessy. The dress was not inexpensive, but you would not know it from the quality I received. This was consistent with all of the bridesmaids. First, it took more than 10 weeks to receive the dress. At first, this did not bother me as that it typical with some bridesmaid dress manufacturers. Upon receiving the dress and further contemplation, this time frame did not make sense. I ordered a generic size 6, not custom measurements, and the dress is very low quality. For the price I paid, the dress was not worth it. The dress help up fine, but the material felt cheap. Finally, the dress I purchased was a light blush color. For some unknown reason, the manufacturer included white cups in the top that could be seen from the outside due to the shear nature of the outermost layer of fabric. The cups were easily removed, but I do not know why they would have even been included in the first place given how easily the cups could be seen from the outside.

Originally picked Dessy dresses through weddington way, they cancelled half of the orders and offered different dresses because Weddington way was dropping them at as a designer. Fortunately we were able to order the others straight from Dessy....all 6 of the dresses my bridesmaids ordered were grossly ill fit. One paid for extra length which ended up being incredibly long, and now she is paying to have the extra length cut off. While the dresses were reasonably priced, the price for excessive alterations overrides those savings. Overall, I've been overly unimpressed and feel awful for subjecting my bridesmaids to dealing with Dessy

Please save yourself!! Do not use Dessy!! Total rip off!! Our bride picked a few dresses for the bridesmaids to choose from. All of us are extremely disappointed! The quality is absolutely terrible, so cheap looking and feeling. Really odd fit. Worst part is, they took so long to ship that we cannot return them. I wrote to Dessy and told them how disappointed I am and asked them for a partial refund because the product was not as advertised. The dress looks nothing like the quality dress pictured on their site. They wrote me some canned answer back/obviously didn't even read what I wrote and offered me a chance to return the dress for a $60 restocking fee. Total BS! I've been in a ton of weddings lately, this dress is by far the worst quality. Don't fall into their overpriced trap. Total junk and worst customer service. My dress was Alfred Sung D440 and the other girls were equally disappointed with their styles.

This was one of the worst experiences I have ever had regarding dresses. There are no returns, extra fees for everything, and if anything goes wrong they are not willing to do what it takes to fix the problem. At this rate I am sure one of the girls will not be able to have a dress. I am one of 6 bridesmaids and the bride decided to use this vendor so we could all order different styles that fit our body shapes but still have a uniform look which was a great idea but has been nothing but a disaster for many of us. First off the bride decided on a dress color which was apricot and sent us a link that was supposed to automatically choose that color when we decided on a style. Unfortunately there is a special color, apricot gold which was an extra fee, and if the dress was able to be made it that apricot gold it would default to that option which was unknown to the bride. Three girls ordered that fabric color before it was discovered. When we contacted the company within a week of ordering (it takes 3 months for the dresses to be done) to ask if they could switch the fabric to the correct color they said yes if you are willing to pay an $80 fee per dress. The bride decided it would be unfair to make them switch so would do an even split between the two colors. All of us ordered the dresses 5 full months before the wedding as they say it takes about 9 weeks for the dresses to come in. Fast forward 13 weeks (not 9) and the first of the dresses are starting to arrive. Multiple people had fit issues and one girl had an issue where the dress was too small even though she ordered to her measurements. Anytime the company was contacted the story was the same... "Well this is a special order so there are no returns, it was done to your requirements so is not our issue and you will need to order a new dress."

Horrible quality and way overpriced. All of the dresses I tried on were not flattering in the slightest made of 100% polyester and over $250. You can find a $20 dress from forever 21 made better than a $250 Dessy dress.
