Bridal Party Fashion of 2014 | Youngstown Wedding Photography

Continuing on with our 2014 FAVORITES series, we’re excited to share some awesome bridal party fashion with you from our 2014 weddings today! You can make such a statement with your bridesmaids’ dresses, shoes, and jewelry and you can definitely tie it all together with the groomsmen’s look. Bridesmaid dresses have come a long way recently, in my opinion. They’re no longer hideously gaudy gowns made of taffeta that NO ONE would ever want to wear again. Brides are now getting creative with where they purchase bridesmaids’ dresses & are oftentimes going for a look that their best friends would WANT to wear rather than something they’d rather burn in a bonfire. It’s a win-win!

One of my favorite trends from 2014 weddings was mismatched bridesmaids’ dresses in varying shades of a hue. I really loved the look of Jamie’s bridesmaids!

She had her Maid of Honor (her sister) in yellow & the rest of the lovely bridesmaids in gray to coordinate with her wedding day color scheme. It was really pretty and yellow makes everything cheery!gray and yellow bridesmaid dressesCarissa_Josh_Stambaugh-Auditorium_Youngstown-OH-Wedding-Photography_0024Brielle & Josh enjoyed a casual wedding day at Snodes Restored Country Barn.

The deep plum with the dusty rose and the pale pink worked so well in late Fall! And the beautiful vibrant flowers were simply stunning.
