The fun thing about bridesmaid dresses these days is that they’re actually fun. Right? I mean, they can still be a painful part of the planning process (as evidenced by my own struggles!), but at least there are far more options, and far fewer “rules,” than there used to be, which frees all of us up to find the perfect fit for our wedding and our style. I love how Lauren’s bridesmaids ended up in a dress that was a perfect blend of her aesthetic and background AND her groom’s — and delightfully Southern to boot!

These lovely dresses are the “Zoe” style by LulaKate in royal seersucker! From Lauren:
When pairing an authentic sailor from the north with a self-proclaimed princess from the Deep South, we knew the vibe of our wedding would have to be a compromise. So, we met in the middle. Incorporating the seersucker look for my bridesmaids was a must. The simple, clean print made with cool, airy fabric was the perfect pick for our hot August ceremony. Selecting the subtle stripes was the easy part. Deciding whom and where to purchase the dresses from was going to be the hard part… until I stumbled upon LulaKate, that is. Based in Charleston, SC, LulaKate’s fresh selections provided me with a pleasant and easy shopping experience that I couldn’t have been happier with. Every detail was flawless, from Zoe’s halter bows draping my bridesmaids’ necks to the soft blue and white tones that complemented the nearby sea. Our “traditional meets nautical” vision was brought to life on Jekyll Island, and with LulaKate’s creations, the wind in my hair and the Southern sea serenading us in the background, I couldn’t have dreamt up a more perfect beginning to kick off the rest of my life.
Thank you so much for sending these beauties our way, Sarah!
