That moment your bestie tells you she’s engaged is a time filled with such excitement and, when she asks you to be a bridesmaid and you know you’ll be involved in the big day, then it’s time for even more celebrations!
Before you pop the Champagne, you’ll need to consider your own bridal support style. Whether it’s the hen, the rehearsal dinner or the big day itself, here at Emma Wallace we’ve got the looks to ensure you’re the best dressed for that big moment.
Whether you’re going all out with a week-long vacation in Mykonos or keeping it subtle and chic with a night in London, the hen do is a chance for all the female friends of the bride to come together and show her how much she’s loved. When it comes to the hen, we know white is a no-go as the bride will no doubt be rocking the bridal shade, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still bring that main character energy with a vivid colour. We’d opt for our Lora Jumpsuit in bold green, paired with metallic skyscraper heels and a cute hair clip that reads ‘Bridesmaid’. A look that can take you anywhere – be it a beach bar under the Mediterranean sun, or a disco ball in a buzzing city.
If you’re Maid of Honour, then it will be on you to make sure the rest of the hens are having the best time. We think goodie bags are the perfect way to perk everyone up. Put all the hen do recovery essentials in there - including paracetamol, under eye patches and water but don’t forget to pop in some of our Mixed Mini Scrunchies – the cutest keepsake they can have for years to come to remember the day by.
The night before the wedding is often when brides and groom bring their bridal parties together for one last meal to settle the nerves before the big day. It’s the perfect chance to dial up the glamour and raise a glass of champagne to the couple. We love our Luella Jumpsuit with its asymmetric one shoulder design for just this occasion. Wear with a chunky platform shoe and slick your hair back into a centre parting low ponytail. Wear a chic liner flick on your eye and you’re ready to get the party started.
The big day is finally here and, the morning you all get ready together is one of the most precious moments to celebrate. With photos galore being taken it’s key you look your best. Why not buy the bride, bridesmaids and mother of the bride matching silk gowns to wear whilst you get ready? Our new Rouge print is perfect for the occasion or go for our pastel pretty Cassia print if you want something more understated. Wear with fluffy slippers and get ready to pose for the camera as they capture the transformation process before the wedding gowns go on.
The aisle is set, and the guests have arrived! It’s show time! For the bridesmaid dress - we adore our Carina Gown. In the most beautiful dusky blush shade, it’s glamorous and chic in equal measure. Wear with barely there stilettos and a pink lip with your hair in loose waves to complete the look. Finish with a flower crown for a more boho vibe and you’re ready to catch the bouquet!
We love when our Emma Wallace Women celebrate their love in style. If you’re heading to a wedding, don’t forget to tag us @emmawallacedesigner so we can see your look.
