Last weekend, we witnessed a man propose to his then-girlfriend, now-fiancé on the Queensboro Bridge. And that's when we realized that romance comes in many different ways, just like weddings. And bridesmaid dresses. Why let your happily engaged friend convince you to buy a brown tea-length dress you will never wear again? Or something baby-blue with sashes? There are other options out there! That's why we searched the stores of New York to find 120 of the loveliest options for bridesmaid dresses — which can double as outfits to other parties — for our latest Shop-A-Matic. Our selection is just one part of the latest New York Weddings issue, which also includes the top 130 wedding dresses and 100 wedding accessories. Check out our top five picks for bridesmaid dresses below. And even if you're not in a wedding, you're sure to find a party dress worth wearing. Because, in the end, we will never divorce our love for shopping.
Asymmetrical Chiffon Dress by Vera Wang
Why we like it: The asymmetrical cut is really on trend but it isn't too severe, and vibrant aqua blue would look great in pictures.
A-Line Dress by Jim Hjelm Occasions
Why we like it: Though the color and cut are conservative, this is feminine and classy overall. It's a likely pick for an evening wedding.
Tucked Dress by London Times
Why we like it: The multiple layers show off the shimmer of the gray color.
Sweetheart Dress by Miss Me
Why we like it: Black and strapless — this is simple, to the point, and definitely re-wearable.
Rossettes-and-Ruffles Dress by Yoana Baraschi
Why we like it: With the right footwear and accessories, this can go for day or evening affairs.
