Watch Out, Brides -- Bridesmaids Are Stealing The Show in 2013

While attending Bridal Market this weekend, our weddings editor noticed a recurring trend on the runways. No, it wasn’t a bold gown trend or something Vera Wang did (like black wedding dresses) — but instead, a recurring theme in bridesmaid dresses. And that theme is that your maids are about to steal the show. Sorry, brides! Gone are the days of ill-fitting pastel dresses and where-does-this-go satin sashes; bridesmaids are about to shine.

From high slits to “skirt drama,” trends that are typically reserved for wedding gowns are now popping up for the ladies in waiting. Designers are no longer catering solely to the women in white — and the bridesmaids are busting loose. Thanks to Monique Lhuillier Bridesmaid and Alfred Angelo, the oft-overlooked bridesmaid is finally having her day.
