The beautiful new Nicki Macfarlane dresses for flower girls and young bridesmaids feature vibrant colours and modern prints. The spring/summer catwalks have already seen striking prints making a return, and the meticulously chosen patterns in Nicki Macfarlane’s 2017 dresses will add extra colour and cheer to any wedding.

I love the Clementine dress. This striking dress with orange floral print organza skirt has a silk bodice and piped arm frills. It comes with an integral petticoat, contrast silk sash in willow or orange, and silk covered buttons.

Floral Bridesmaid Dresses 2016/17

Floral patterned dresses are everywhere right now, and floral bridesmaid dresses are a fabulous trend set to continue for 2016/17 weddings.

Floral patterns are exquisitely pretty, romantic and feminine. The great thing about florals is that they go with pretty much every style of wedding. Of course they ooze vintage, country garden, rustic and boho charm, but they will also be fabulous for a modern chic wedding too. There are many different styles of floral pattern, from small, ditsy patterns to large, elegant blooms.

The great thing about floral bridesmaid dresses is that you can choose to have all your maids in the same design, or mismatch dresses or patterns. As long as you stick to complementing styles and colours your maids will look and feel fabulous.

We have found these beautiful floral dresses that are perfect for bridesmaid dresses.

We asked Twobirds Bridesmaid stockist Ellie Sanderson why she loves the collections…

“At Ellie Sanderson we are totally smitten with the Twobirds Bridesmaid dress collections. The dresses come in the most terrific range of colours, from soft blush pink to wonderful Heather and Platinum, and are incredibly versatile, so your bridesmaids can wear the same dress whilst maintaining their individuality.

“Twobirds Bridesmaid dresses are so flattering on fuller figures when worn with the magic Bandeau, and equally as flattering on slim girls. We have also had many a pregnant bridesmaid wear them, with the empire line cut of the dress allowing for comfort and space.

“British made with good lead times make Twobirds Bridesmaid dresses huge favourites at Ellie Sanderson, and we know the fabulous new tulle collection will become the latest ‘must have’ for stylish bridesmaids…”

White Bridesmaid Dresses – Moody Monday

We are sure you will all agree that Catherine Middleton’s sister Pippa looked absolutely stunning in her white bridesmaid dress. There has been much debate following the Royal Wedding as to whether it is ‘right’ for anyone other than the bride to wear white at a wedding. We think it was a brilliant choice and we are sure that white bridesmaid dresses will now be very popular for 2012 weddings (and beyond!).

Here are some of our favourite white bridesmaid dresses.
