As Bride and Groom reviews the year that was journalists Jessica and Alana take a look at the best bridesmaid ensembles.
Bridesmaid trends are ever-changing and in 2017 Goulburn Valley brides have thrown out the rule book.
Stepping away from traditional bridesmaid gowns and pastels, brides have opted to make a statement with separates and a range of bold and contemporary hues.
Jessica’s top bridesmaid looks
For something out of the ordinary, Valley Bride Bridget Curtis chose whimsical, peach tulle skirts for her bridesmaids matched with crop tops to suit their individual styles.
Valley Bride Breeanna Hicks’ maids made a statement in daring red sequined midi-length dresses, the perfect pairing for the wedding’s vintage vibes.
White bridesmaid dresses are here to stay.
The lace detailed, below-the-knee dress Valley Bride Kara’s bridesmaid wore was a delicate and romantic touch to the garden nuptials.
Alana’s top bridesmaid looks
A striking rose gold Zimmermann dress for Valley Bride Melissa Thom’s bridesmaid was a beautiful compliment to Melissa and her husband Jason Ibbotson’s classic country wedding.
Valley Bride Lauren Masters well and truly did away with the rules in her wedding to Tobian Thoolen, with her bridesmaids opting for different dresses in a similar navy hue.
When it comes to comfort, it’s hard to look past the latest bridesmaids’ dress trend – jumpsuits.
These vibrant wine coloured jumpsuits from Sheike were a fan favourite and tied in beautifully with Valley Bride Teigan Bathman’s luscious bouquet.
