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.
