The first picture that pops up in our head when we hear "bridesmaid dresses" is a group of happy women in coordinated outfits standing right next to the bride. It could be colour coordinated or of the same silhouettes. That is a beautiful picture that the conventional bridesmaids have gorgeously carried over the years, but why not stand out?
Instead of coordinated outfits of bridesmaids who walk beside the bride as she walks down the aisle to the mandap for Saath Phere, the beautiful ladies can opt for unique bridesmaids dresses to make some heads turn and some hearts burn.
