Give your bridesmaids some sparkle this season

Once you filter through a series of wedding gowns and find the perfect one for your big day, it's time to locate the ideal bridesmaid gowns to ensure your girls look just as fabulous. That being said, it might be worth looking into trends to get everything just right.

The Huffington Post recently reported that sequins are in, specifically when it comes to bridesmaid gowns. Think sparkly and glamorous - sequins and beads can help light bounce off of any ensemble and give any woman a glowing look. As you narrow down your options, try to stay within the realm of gold and silver. This can help you make sure that the dresses have a regal appearance rather than a tacky one.

Another trend that might be worth taking into consideration is the simple, elegant look and the illusion neckline. Since spring, this style has been growing in popularity, according to Wedding Wire. Just remember, you don't all have to be matching in neutral colors - solid dresses give you more room to play with hues and add some pop.

By taking these key tips into account, you can be sure that your bridesmaids are just as happy as you on your wedding day.
