If you haven't already heard, we've recently added more stunning dress styles to our Kennedy Blue collection of short lace bridesmaid dresses. They're sophisticated, they're sweet, they're everything that every bride could ever want for her 'maids! Not only did we add new styles to our collection, but gorgeous new colors as well. So if you're shopping for your bridal party attire and just haven't quite found what you're looking for, we've created a line that's elegant, chic, and guaranteed to be loveable by all your girls.
Now available in illusion, V-neck, halter, and strapless necklines, we have a dress style for every girl! Our most recent designs, Maddie and Laura, are a fun and spunky addition to our already stunning collection. Maddie, a halter neckline with an open back and A-line skirt is perfect for the charming and girly bridesmaid. Laura, a strapless, sweetheart neckline with a fitted silhouette is great for a sassy and fun personality.
And the best part about these short lace bridesmaid dresses? They're totally wearable long after the event! Whether you're attending a wedding or going out for date-night, these dress styles are great options and completely practical.
We totally get that when choosing your bridal party attire, color is super important. While we LOVE our navy (and always will!), we definitely saw a need for more variety in our colors. That being said, we added six amazing new colors that are flattering to wear and easy to love!
If you're going for a darker palette, try black, navy, eggplant, or charcoal. If you want something more vibrant, consider silver, blush, mint, or coral. And if you're a bride? Wear one of the designs in ivory or white for your rehearsal dinner, bachelorette party, bridal shower, informal wedding, or even honeymoon.
Trust us, your girls will thank you for choosing Kennedy Blue. Find your favorite style by checking out the full collection on our Kennedy Blue bridesmaids page. If you want more inspiration on how we style our lace designs, follow us on Pinterest or Facebook for tons of pretty ideas.

As a soon-to-be bride, choosing my wedding flowers has been one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make – and honestly, I still haven’t decided! There are so many pretty options out there and narrowing all of them down has been nothing short of overwhelming. To make the decision a bit easier on you, I’ve gathered some of my absolute favorite bridesmaid bouquets from some of our Kennedy Blue weddings that I know you’re going to love!
Styling your besties in mismatched bridesmaid dresses has been a huge trend for the past few years. And as popular as it still is, we’re slowly starting to see brides revert to having all of their girls dressed in the same style. So how do you decide what’s best for your own wedding? Here are some points to get you thinking about whether you should go the route of mismatched bridesmaid dresses or styling your girls in all the same look.
Romantic, elegant, and totally on-trend; we’re currently obsessing over Bordeaux bridesmaid dresses! Inspired by Marsala, Pantone’s 2016 color of the year, our newest color was created out of the need for a deep red with a romantic pink undertone. Literally, you guys, this color is everything we’ve ever dreamt of! Flattering on literally every skin tone, we think this is a color that your bridesmaids are easily going to fall in love with!
Taking Your Measurements
For the most accurate measurements, do not measure over your clothing. Your measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress. The measuring tape shouldn't be pulled too tight or have too much slack, and should always be parallel with the floor.
**Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so keep in mind that it's not uncommon to find yourself requiring alterations.
Bust size: Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).
Waist size: While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. Take the measurement where the natural crease happens in your side. This should be a few inches above your belly button.
Hip size: Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.
Choosing your correct size
Compare these three measurements to the Kennedy Blue size chart above. It is very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements. For example, if your bust measures 40.5" (size 12), your waist measures 31" (size 10) and your hips measure 41.5" (size 8), we advise that you order a size 12, and get your dress altered down to custom fit your body. Ordering anything smaller than a size 12 would not fit in the bust area. Please note: Our bridal gown size chart is different than the bridesmaids sizing and is listed below.
