Velvet seems to be an unexpected choice for bridesmaids, but for all of its benefits, it’s no wonder why the fabric is rising in popularity. Velvet bridesmaid dresses are lightweight, soft, and have great elasticity, making them easy to fit, and very figure flattering. The texture of the fabric is extremely forgiving and looks great on all body types. We love to play with colors in velvet: looking incredibly rich in deeper colors, it makes a perfect choice for a fall, winter, or even early spring wedding.
Velvet has a wonderful sheen, depth of color and drapes beautifully. And if the bridesmaids are planning a winter wedding or a wedding during the cooler months, it’s the perfect fabric. Alfabridal has created a number of bridesmaid dresses in velvet, in different styles, to suit different girls and different wedding moods.
This blue V-neck velvet bridesmaid dress comes in a floral print that is fresh and special.

As a texture, velvet really lends itself to luxe, jewel tones. As velvet can look heavy in a full line-up of bridesmaids (particularly for spring and summer weddings), it works really well styled in a mix and match selection of bridesmaids dresses. Tie it in tonally for a cohesive look.
There is more than one way bridesmaids can add some velvet bridesmaid dresses into the bridal party mix. Alfabridal carries a few different styles of velvet dresses. Similar to the mix-and-match styles that are trending right now – different tops, same fabrics – except, this mix-and-match brings texture to your bride tribe. Chiffon is safe, but velvet bridesmaid dresses are more edgy. Because the velvet fabrics are more saturated and plush, it gives a gorgeous contrast with light and flowy chiffon skirts.
