Without a doubt, choosing a bridesmaid dress was one my hardest wedding planning decisions. Why? My bridesmaids (a.k.a my sisters) are some of the dearest people to me, and I wanted them to wear something they loved on my wedding day — and that came at an affordable price point. They’re all stylish and savvy ladies with high standards, and I didn’t want to let them down.
If that sounds like the predicament you’re in, I give you Joanna August’s newest collection. We’ve used her dresses for many projects over the years, including in the most recent issue of our magazine. JA is a trailblazer in the movement to “modernize” the bridesmaid, specializing in chic, fashion forward options for the style-conscious bride and her friends.
The new Joanna August collection features jumpsuits, separates, and lace options in addition to beautiful short and long dresses. I’ve actually worn many of my bridesmaid dresses after their wedding day debuts, and I know I’d pull these Joanna August looks from my closet for special occasions, too — and so will your gals!
Blending bohemian ease and timeless sophistication, JA dresses are both comfortable and glamorous – a hard to find combination! Their modern approach encourages the mixing and matching of colors, styles, and hem lengths so that you can piece together a look that is completely your own and perfectly tailored to your wedding aesthetic.
