Wedding Planning

Customize Your Bridal Party Looks

Gone are the days when your bridal party has to where the exact same thing—from headpieces down to pedicure shades. And while mix-and-match dresses have been a hot wedding trend for a while now, we loved seeing
Girls actress Lena Dunham wear a personalized sequined skirt as a bridesmaid in her friend’s recent wedding. Working with Jenna Lyons, creative director and president of J.Crew, this bridal party wore stylish nude dresses with three-quarter-sleeve turtleneck tops and customized sequined pencil skirts—each embroidered with meaningful phrases, colorful shapes and faux flowers. The result was nothing short of gorgeous.

What happens when @jcrew goddess Jenna Lyons lets a bunch of crazy bitches customize their skirts… here we go #gomezandmorticia

While we can’t all have access to a fashion maven like Lyons, your bridal party can steal this idea and individualize their wedding outfits. Check out a few looks here.

Bespoke isn’t just for brides anymore! If it’s within your wedding budget, consider custom gowns for your bridal party for dresses that fit their style and shape perfectly.

Have each bridesmaid wear a monogrammed necklace—their jewelry will look uniform from afar, but feel special close up.

Your bridesmaids can get creative with their wedding manis for subtle personalization.

Hats and fascinators aren’t just for derby days and royal weddings. Have each bridesmaid wear a fun topper for a flirtatious hint of whimsy.

You probably wouldn’t ask your brunette friend to go blonde for your day, so the same should hold true for any friends with colorful locks. It’s part of why you love them! Let their personality shine.
