When I was planning my wedding, I remember bridesmaid dress decisions being some of the hardest to pull the trigger on. There’s just something about asking your loved ones to spend a good chunk of money on a piece of clothing they’re not picking out that makes me swallow hard! Thankfully, there are a surplus of beautiful bridesmaid dress options these days, making it easy to find something they’ll love (but on the other hand, the variety makes narrowing finalists down even more difficult!). We love highlighting our favorites for y’all to make the search easier, and today, we’re talking shantung by Donna Morgan.

Most of y’all already know why we love Donna Morgan – their designs are fashion forward, come in tons of colors, and (best of all) ship immediately! Their line started with chiffon designs, and they still carry tons of those beauties, but we were so excited to see that they’ve branched out into shantung, too!

Shantung is a more structured fabric than chiffon, and it creates a beautiful, tailored silhouette. Donna Morgan’s shantung line includes six designs with a variety of bodice and skirt styles. My personal favorites are the Ruby and the Olive!

While the colored shantung collection is perfect for a preppy and modern brides, Donna Morgan’s gray shantung line-up is a great fit for those looking for a twist on black tie. Bridesmaids no longer need to wear long dresses for a formal feel – these beauties will fancy up whatever bridal party they’ve invited to! Think: elegant and sophisticated, a throwback to Grace Kelly.

To see the full Donna Morgan line-up, including their beautiful floral print bridesmaid dresses, be sure to check out their site!

A few weeks ago, we shared a feminine and floral inspiration board and shopping guide, inspired by one of Donna Morgan’s newest prints, and today, I’m excited to introduce y’all to another–Taffy! Watercolor details are always beautiful additions to a wedding, and this dress is such a unique option that would be a perfect fit for a late spring or summer celebration.

Inspired by the bright and bold, but still sweet, Taffy print, this inspiration board is fit for a Southern early summer wedding, perhaps in the backyard or on a farm. It’s charming, colorful, and strikes just the right balance between elegant and playful!

It never fails – one of our most frequently asked questions is, “what should I gift my bridesmaids?” We understand, because with all your gals mean to you, it feels like a lot of pressure to gift them something that’s personal, meaningful, sweet, matches their aesthetic, and that they will keep, use, and/or treasure. And, with the size of bridal parties in the South, it can’t, of course, be too expensive! We’re so happy to introduce you today to The Bride’s Maid Shop, a one-stop shop for beautiful bridesmaid gifts and carefully curated gift packages.

Most of the gifts on The Bride’s Maid Shop are handmade, and all are truly high quality. Many of their items are also designed exclusively for their site, which we love! We also love how they’ve sorted their picks into packages, making it simple for brides to personalize with easy.

Every package includes complimentary gift wrapping and a thank you note card – a huge time saver that makes it easy for you to pen a heartfelt note to each gal before handing her goodies over. Because truly, letting your best ladies know how much they mean to you (in writing!) is one of the best gifts you can give!

Ready to check this “to do” off your list? The lovely ladies at The Bride’s Maids Shop are offering SW readers 15% off their entire order with code SOWED2015!
