ethereal bridesmaids dresses

When Nordstrom opened here in Honolulu a couple of years ago it was BIG NEWS! They have an exceptional bridal department and these islands were in desperate need of that. Not only does Nordstrom carry an amazing range of bridal gowns, their options for bridesmaids dresses are endless. Two of my favorite looks for bridesmaids are what I like to call ‘Blushing Beauties’ and ‘Ethereal Elegance.’


For a blushing beauties themed wedding inspired by Nordstrom Weddings’ gorgeously long and feminine bridesmaids dresses – a spring floral, shabby-chic and vintage-inspired wedding is perfect. With a textural bridal bouquet, flower topped cake, and sweet bow details it’s hard to go wrong with this look! Plus your bridesmaids will feel elegant and beautiful in floor length dresses, mismatched to be on right on trend.

Nordstrom Weddings has a wide variety of bridesmaids dresses in ‘sister’ styles (aka: you can mix and match in similar shades), plus their 24/7 online (or in-store) stylists can help you and your ladies pick them out!

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of an ethereal wedding is one with lots of tulle and one that is definitely ballet themed. Nothing says elegant like shades of black and grey at your wedding and these three bridesmaids dresses from Nordstrom Weddings are so über chic and sophisticated! The entire look is 100% romantic glam.

For a wedding centered on the words ‘ethereal elegance’ add a tulle overlay to your reception tables and lots of silk, streaming ribbons from your bridal bouquet. A hand-painted cake is another showstopper that your guests will be talking about for years to come.
