we heart these bridesmaids dresses from Boden. x

I know that I might be ever so slightly biased, but I'm so excited about the latest range of Boden party dresses.  They're perfect wedding attire whether you're a guest or a bridesmaid and priced pretty reasonably for the quality and detail..

This beautiful cream broderie shift dress is my 'on-a-budget' bridal option.  I would definitely consider this at a registry ceremony.

I think the whole world has had a slight Zooey Deschanel obsession of late, me included (I've had a Zooey-inspired fringe cut in!) and the below dress reminds me of the one she wore in 500 Days Of Summer, right down to the pale blue shade.

Do you agree?  It also comes in this rose colour:

If you're a fan of the ruched front detailing but minus the sleeves, then I think this below dress is perfect:
I actually spotted an extremely similar version in D&G on Bond Street which had a cream grosgrain sash.  This would be my personal choice for summer wedding bridesmaids- it can be worn with straps or without...

and it comes in orchid pink and this fresh leaf green:

My absolute favourite is this 50s floral print prom dress...
I don't have any weddings to go to this year (sadly- can someone I know please sort that out?!) otherwise this would have been perfect!  I also think it's a very pretty option for bridesmaids in an English country wedding...

And for an evening 'do' this navy sequin dress could be great to dance the night away in...
It's not so over the top that you would upstage the bride, but there's just enough dazzling 'wow' about it that you'd turn heads!  It's a little on the expensive side but I think that this is a wardrobe staple.  It could work now with tights, on a summers evening and later in the year for those Christmas parties- costs per wear means that it's actually pretty reasonable!  And as it's from Boden's Limited range you'll be less likely to find anyone else wearing the same!
