Bridal Market: Spotlight on Bridesmaid Dresses {Part 2}

More bridesmaid dresses we loved from NYC's latest bridal market:

This sophisticated lace sheath from Legends by Romona Keveza would be a great pick for an intimate wedding in the city. 

We did a wedding this past spring where the maids of honor wore white dresses by Lela Rose with contrasting sashes at the waist. A slightly unusual choice, but it looked beautiful, and didn't take away from the bride's gown at all. Love this one-shouldered frock from Lela.

Let's be honest: this nude dress by Melissa Sweet is a really hard color to pull off (I would look like a cadaver). But it does look super chic with black accessories, and I love the soft fabric and draping in the skirt. Also, I'm coveting the model's kicky ponytail and bangs. 

High drama by Jim Hjelm, with bonus points for the gown's pockets and empire waist line (a much more forgiving silhouette for those of us who like to eat multiple desserts at a wedding!) 

Martha Stewart Weddings claims this Simple Silhouettes dress is electric blue. I'm not getting any electricity from the color, but the cut would be flattering on a variety of body types, and Simple Silhouettes has dozens of colors to choose from anyway. 

Not everybody is a fuchsia fan, but I think the color works well with this cut. Also, the model is one tall drink of water, which is probably because she's duh, a model, but I'm choosing to believe I'd look the same in this Alvina Valenta gown. 

Which bridesmaid dress from market week was your favorite?
