Rewritten Bridesmaid Dresses - Florence

Rewritten – Dresses for Damn Cool Bridesmaids

Rewritten bridesmaid dresses are designed for all those damn cool bridesmaids who are searching for a dress that breaks tradition slightly, and I’m excited to share their collection with you.

Based in London, friends Katie Arnott and Frances Cookson launched Rewritten in 2016. Frustrated by the current offering of bridesmaid dresses for their own bridesmaids, they decided to design their own.

Rewritten Bridesmaid Dresses - Florence

Rewritten takes an entirely modern approach to bridal wear, creating beautiful bridesmaids dresses which are chic, sophisticated and a little bit bohemian. They work alongside some of the world’s best suppliers to offer flattering, simple designs in the most beautiful fabric and colour combinations.

Dress Style and Colour Options

Rewritten bridesmaid dresses are available in seven signature styles and eight unique colours…

  • Concrete – Grey
  • Forest – Dark Rreen
  • Ink – Navy
  • Marine – Light Green
  • Oyster – Pale Pink
  • Bluebell – Blue
  • Chianti – Burgundy
  • Peachy – Peach

I especially love the soft pinky purple shade ‘Oyster’ and the mint green shade ‘Marine’.

Hen Party Accessories

The Unspoken Duties of Being a Bridesmaid

Congratulations, you’ve been selected as a bridesmaid – but now comes the hard part. It’s not all drinking bubbly and pouring over wedding magazines (well, it kind of is, but there’s some planning to be done in between). As a hen party aficionado, Lauren of Last Night of Freedom rounds up the unspoken duties of being a bridesmaid. Basically, plan an unforgettable hen party, and you’re halfway there…

Locations

As one of the chosen ones, it falls on you to plan the most unforgettable hen weekend. Ever. And, the location is the most important part of the celebrations.

Beach in Marbella

There are a variety of gorgeous cities to choose from – marvellous Marbs to notorious Newcastle, picturesque Poznan to bustling Barcelona – so make sure you pick the absolute right one for the hen (it is her last night of freedom, after all), and book early to avoid disappointment.

Activities

In between all the celebrating, sipping bubbly and, just generally, causing carnage in your wake, there’s a huge selection of hen activities to while away the days.

Forbidden Nights hen party activity

Indulge your inner Robin Hood on the archery field, bomb about the countryside in a huge 4×4, or get creative in a boozy cocktail class and catch the gorgeous boys of Forbidden Nights in action. There are endless possibilities for her cheeky send-off into married life.

Costumes

Hilarious and group-themed costumes are, most definitely, the best way to celebrate the hen weekend (and embarrass the blushing bride-to-be at the same time).
