Being a bridesmaid should be a lovely experience – a chance to share a happy moment in a close friend’s life. However, the dread of ‘matchy’ dresses fill most prospective bridesmaids with fear. Whether the bride is determined to look good in comparison, or she has surrendered to a love of poufs; the results are often less than pretty… (I think we have all been to these weddings!).
Women of different shapes and sizes all in the same dress should never have become a standard – and thanks to twobirds Bridesmaid, those days are gone. Inspired by a 1970’s Norma Kamali ‘Infinity’ dress, New Yorker Ariane Goldman came up with a rather ingenius ‘convertible’ dress.

Seen at celeb weddings (such as Alyssa Milano’s), twobirds Bridesmaid is the go-to dress designer for stylish brides. The dresses are timeless and luxurious, but most importantly; they are flattering for every figure. Each bridesmaid can express their own sense of style, as every dress within the collection to be worn in 15 different ways! Bodice straps can be twisted, tied, knotted and folded to create a range of flattering neckline and sleeve options for those of us who are a little self- conscious of our arms. For a larger busted lady, or just for additional coverage, bandeaus are available in the same colour and fabric as the dresses, and will appear seamless regardless of how the dress is styled.
twobirds Bridesmaid offer three different collections – Classic, Two-Toned, and the most flamboyant being the Rosette collection that features beautiful chiffon rosettes hand-sewn on to the gowns. Each collection comes in four lengths – Short Straight, Butterfly, Flutter and Ballgown, and an array of catwalk inspired colours will spoil you for choice! Right now there are also two limited edition colours, Blush and Champagne, which are ideal for the summer wedding season, and are available until September 1st 2012.
For the little ones, there is a selection of flowergirl dresses with matching sashes, and for the more unconventional bride who has men in her entourage, there are also colour match ties! twobirds have certainly covered all bases to make sure that there is a cohesive look for the bridal party.
So, brides-to-be, please take note: there is no longer any excuse for putting your bridesmaids into ‘one-size-fits-no-one’ creations…
