A beautiful gray maxi dress for a wedding for your bridesmaids or to wear as a wedding guest.
Gray Maxi Dress
One of the tips I share frequently for finding a bridesmaid dress that will be worn again, is to begin with the end in mind. That means it’s a good idea to pick a dress that you’d wear ordinarily, and consider its potential for your bridal party. This dress by Joanna August, is just that sort of dress, and while, technically, it is designed to be a bridesmaid dress, I know it’s a dress I’d love to have in my closet any time for any occasion.

Gray is such a wonderful color for weddings, it’s sophisticated, neutral, but also has a bit more substance than some barely-there shades, but offers less severity than black. If you pick a modern easy-to-wear style like this wrap dress, the look just emanates a sophisticated vibe. This is the sort of dress a woman who always has effortless style would pick for her bridal party, or to wear herself for a night out.
To accessorize, I decided to bring in some edgy lavender accessories to play up the faint purplish hue that I see in the gray in this dress, and to make the look decidedly modern with a bit of an edge, but still bridal party-friendly. One can also choose a pretty dove gray dress in this style, or more of a dark slate or charcoal. This dress also works for wedding guests too – just as long as the bridesmaids aren’t wearing this shade. Not matter what, this dress will be a closet staple, and smash hit with your wedding party!
