If you’ve been a bridesmaid, you know how it goes: you buy the bridesmaid dress, wear it once, hang it up, and there it sits. This is your opportunity to be Superbride and unleash some dress-savvy style superpowers. Instead of scoping out the usual bridal shop hot spots, find handmade bridesmaid dresses you’ll love as much as they do (you’ll get double points for supporting independent artisans, too – win, win!). We spotted this mustard bridesmaid dress by Amanda Archer to use as a visual inspiration. In your quest for the dress, keep an eye out for fun, feminine details like ruffles, pleats, and textures. This dress in particular offers tons of details such as a scoop neck, tuxedo front pleats, buttons, an A-line pleated skirt, side seam pockets (OH YEAHHH) with a racerback and shoulder pleats. Need we say more?
We love it in mustard (shown) but it comes in pretty much any color you could dream of…
