Tampa Bay weddings are all about fashion: the bride’s dress, the groom’s tux and the bridal party attire. When it comes to choosing your bridesmaids dresses, you’ll want to find something that not only flatters the ladies who will be wearing them, but also complement your overall look.
We’ve asked Tampa Bay bridal fashion experts at Bella Bridesmaids to share their top picks for trending bridesmaid dresses. Not only can you find their shop in South Tampa, but Bella Bridesmaids has stores around the nation, so regardless of where your bridesmaids live, there’s most likely a Bella store near them.
“Separates” is a big trend that is being done well by many designers and perhaps none better than Jenny Yoo. Jenny Yoo cardigans and tank tops, paired with their tulle and chiffon skirts, will have even the most modern brides tapping into their hippie, bohemian chic natures to create a soft beautiful floral look that wouldn’t be out of place in the Queen’s rose garden, or a music festival.

Romantic watercolor print dresses are perfect for fall or spring weddings alike, because they evoke a romantic garden and a European castle at the same time!

The best part about Jenny Yoo prints: they can come in a convertible style!
One of the most popular styles for a show-stopping bride is the Jules dress from Jenny Yoo. Bold sparkling sequins steal our hearts every time, whether you’re choosing beading, luminescent chiffon or floating tulle.

A Touch of Lace
For the bride seeking a soft, romantic and flowery dress with a touch of elegance, you will love the Hayley Paige lace and chiffon dresses. These dresses come in floaty chiffon with delicate lace detailing. For an especially unique look, layer burgundy or navy lace over an accent color.
This collection is delicate and romantic, adding a touch of whimsy and an elegant twist to any venue. You don’t want to miss the beautiful rich jewel tones, like a classic navy and burgundy. The bride who selects Hayley Paige knows sophistication and style when she sees it.
