While I’ve never seen a definitive description, here’s what Grecian-style dresses call to mind, at least for me: lush, folded draping; a fluid fabric, like the arabesque chiffon; the possibility of one-shoulder or strapless silhouette; and a stately presence coupled with a general lightness of being that is a Grecian hallmark. We chose 10 options for your maids, none over $400, but all overflowing with body-skimming, figure-flattering style. From left to right:
1 :: Donna Morgan Ruched One Shoulder Chiffon Gown — the empire waist allows pregnant maids to breathe
2 :: BCBG Abee Pleated Maxi Dress — for a July wedding, the pleats bring the air conditioning
3 :: Amsale Gathered Silk Chiffon Gown — a universally flattering color, which could be mixed with other shades of blush
4 :: Notte by Marchesa Silver Grecian Drape Sleeveless Gown — this is a Marchesa. Any questions?
5 :: J Crew Taryn Long Dress in Silk Chiffon — this blue (oh, this blue) is pretty perfect, but also available in 8 other shades
6 :: BHLDN Thalia Maxi Dress — we love the shoulder flip and the deep green for a September wedding
7 :: Donna Morgan Rhea One Shoulder Chiffon Dress — the shortest and most casual of the bunch
8 :: Endless Summer Gold Octopus Convertible Wrap Dress — only $80, and wrappable in 9834 different ways
9 :: Eliza J Embellished Tiered Chiffon Halter Gown — already accessorized with a bejeweled neckline = money saver
10 :: Indigo One Shoulder A-Line Chiffon Grecian Bridesmaid Dress — in sizes up to a 26W, so everyone is covered
Anna says: our roundups are intended to be both inspirational and aspirational. Some objects are cheap and accessible, while others are dreamier in both price and scope. We try to curate choices from smaller, less well-known shops and larger retailers alike. We suggest you cherrypick the things that appeal to you, ignore the ones that don’t, and share them in equal measure with our already Pinterested style boards.
