Hi, loves! Emma here. I am so in love with navy bridesmaid dresses — and not just because they look chic and pulled together, and pretty much rock in wedding photos.

Read on to find out more, along with a few beautiful (and insanely affordable) bridesmaid dresses I know you’ll love. Enjoy!

When we talked about these getting ready rules recently, we had no idea how many awesome Ask Emmaline questions we’d receive! Today we’re tackling a question from Rachel, who asks,

Dear Emmaline, I know there are robes, shirts, and other apparel for bridesmaids getting ready. Do you have any suggestions for shorts or sweatpants? I want something my bridesmaids can lounge in around the house that will keep them warm after the wedding. Thanks!


Great question, Rachel! Even if you love button-down shirts or beautiful robes, we know that sweatpants are also a girl’s best friend. If you think your bridesmaids would be more comfortable in a pair of tried-and-true sweats, then these bridesmaid sweatpants from Sister9Designs are a perfect choice! You can even have them personalized with each bridesmaid’s name on the front. Take a look…

Now *This* is the Ultimate Bridesmaid Gift Box

Now *This* is the Ultimate Bridesmaid Gift Box | by Deighan Design |

I was emailing with a bride the other day (for anonymity purposes, we’ll just call her M) about bridesmaid gifts. “There are too many options,” she said, “how am I supposed to pick just one?” It’s honestly a common problem! But there’s an easy way to put things in perspective. First, remember why you’re giving a gift in the first place: to show your sincere appreciation. Don’t over-think the gift: as long as you give something you know she will enjoy and will be happy to receive, you’ve done your job.

If you’re wondering how to pick just one, you’ll love this new option: the Bridesmaid Gift Box from Deighan Design. You won’t have to stress over what to pick, since they take the guesswork out of it all! Each gift box comes beautifully packaged (ready to be given) so you don’t even have to wrap it all. It even comes with a cute tag. And you can use this as a way to ask Will You Be My Bridesmaid when asking them, if you like! Find out what’s in the box…
