Now Trending: Embroidered Bridesmaid Dresses

by Kennedy Blue September 15, 2017 58 Comments

If you haven’t already seen it all over popular shopping sites, runways, and in wedding apparel, it’s about time you hop on board because embroidery is the new it-thing! It’s recently become a hot wedding trend in bridal gowns, but Kennedy Blue wanted to be one of the first designers to give you a collection of mix-and-match embroidered bridesmaid dresses that your girls will love!

For centuries, embroidery has been associated with romance, delicacy, and beauty – and now it’s back in fashion with all its freshness and prominence. In fact, we’ve even seen it worn by A-listers such as Taylor Swift, Naomi Watts, and Rose Byrne on the red carpet! 

Our Spring Collection has 5 great designs with embroidered tops and luxe chiffon bottoms. From traditional and modest designs, to low-cut necklines and sexy slits, you are bound to find a style you’ll love. To check out the new collection of embroidered bridesmaid dresses, keep reading! We promise that you’ll love what you see!

5 Embroidered Bridesmaid Dresses

Embroidery is all the rage in ready-to-wear apparel, so Kennedy Blue decided to add the on-trend fabric into the mix. Similar to our lace-top styles, these 5 new embroidered-top dresses are for the bride looking for something unique and romantic. Think of those Jim Hjelm and BHLDN brides – this look is totally for them!  

Our embroidered designs are priced at $185. Check them out!

Morgan has a gorgeous embroidered top with a V-neckline and V-back with scalloped edging along the straps. The V-neckline favors every woman's shape, as it elongates the neck and creates a balanced look that just slightly sits off the shoulders. This style also has a complimentary A-line chiffon skirt, belt at the waist and pockets.

Iris is a beautiful bridesmaid dress that uses --to any wearer's advantage-- a long, A-line chiffon skirt that finishes with a chiffon belt and pockets. The A-line cut is great to create an hourglass figure and helps to elongate the overall appearance. But let's talk about the main feature of Iris: an embroidered top with a V-neckline, narrow illusion straps, and an illusion racer back that will surely be complimented on the wedding day.

Iris is so gorgeous!

Madeline is the perfect combo of trendy and romantic. It shows off the bridesmaid's shoulders with an embroidered top that offers a high, illusion neckline and straps that can be adjusted to go straight down or crisscross in the back. The A-line chiffon skirt of this design is also finished with a chiffon belt at the waist and pockets.

Jade seriously could not be more stunning (can we say it's even a bit magical?). Its embroidered top presents an off-shoulder illusion bateau neckline and V-back. This gorgeous top has an A-line, luxe chiffon skirt finished with a chiffon belt at the waist & pockets.

Wren is a style for daring bridesmaids. Its embroidered top with a deep v-neckline, low v-back, and illusion straps are super feminine and romantic. You can pick from our 15 available colors. And yes, this style features the always-fresh A-line chiffon skirt -- with its chiffon belt and pockets.

Colors, colors, colors!

All the embroidered dresses from our Spring 2017 collection are available in more than 15+ colors, so you're sure to find a hue that you'll love!

This is a quick list of all the available colors: Navy, Royal, Slate Blue, Cornflower, Mint, Sage, Eggplant, Grape, Violet, Blush, Peach, Berry, Bordeaux, Claret, White, Ivory, Champagne, Buttercup, Latte, Black, Charcoal, and Silver.

I love elegance of the embroidered tops and soft flowy bottom of these dresses. I chose to go with the slate blue color, my maid of honor will be in the Iris, and my bridesmaids will be going for a mix and match look. I cannot wait to see how they look on the girls in person!!

I love the detail of the chiffon with the embroidery. It is so classy, but relevant! I love the look of the embroidery, how it looks like lace. As a girl from SC, I adore lace and the southern vibes I get from these gorgeous dresses!

Measurement Guide - How to Measure for Your Size

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.

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.

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. Stand up straight and do not “suck in” when taking this measurment.

Hip size

Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.

Depending on the fabric, a dress can be altered down up to 2 full sizes, but can be very difficult to let out as there is only about .5 inch of fabric to do so at the seams.

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.
