Newest Alfred Sung Bridesmaid Dresses
Here is an up close and personal look at a few of our favorite dresses from Dessy’s new collection.
For brides who like florals, this classic A-line bridesmaid dress is ideal. Style D699FP has so many unique things to boast about. It steals the show with its tapered high low hem, and whimsical print options. Topped with a strapless sweetheart neckline, with removable spaghetti straps included for those who prefer a little extra security and support.
Princess seams create flattering lines, while an inset waistband defines the midsection. The long skirt falls tapers to tea-length in the front, providing a peek at the shoes. Made from soft, sateen twill, it is available in three different floral prints: bold flowers on a blush background, a blue porcelain style print with blue flowers on a white china background, and a breathtaking black, white, and gray floral version that looks like a study in black and white. The bottom of the skirt appearing dip-dyed in black. The print on all versions is visible on both sides, making it a visual delight. The back fastens in the center with an invisible zip closure.
The Alfred Sung D722FP bridesmaid dress is the sister style to the one above, which is also offered in a whimsical floral print. It features princess seams, self belt waistline and tapered high-low hem.
The difference here is it is topped with a wide scoop neckline that meets the top of the shoulder with a short cap sleeve. Pockets are hidden in the side seams offering the perfect place to stash a few essentials. Both gowns would look gorgeous on two different girls, while still keeping the overall silhouette uniform.
The Alfred Sung D726 bridesmaid dress is a gorgeous option for those who prefer something a bit more subdued. It flows in airy chiffon knit. The bodice is gathered towards the center of a sloped sweetheart neckline and is fitted through the waist.
Compared to a classic sweetheart bodice, the subtle sweetheart neckline is more modest and modern in silhouette. A folded waistband meets a traditional A-line circle skirt that falls to just below the knee. You have the option of adding extra length for a longer gown. It falls nicely, skimming over the hips, with a soft movement. A center back zipper is hidden discreetly into the seam to fasten it all up.
This lustrous sateen twill Alfred Sung D723 bridesmaid dress can be made in single color or two color options. It features matching V-neck and V-backlines that coordinate beautifully with one another. The bodice is fitted through the natural waistline, where it meets the skirt with an inset waistband.
The skirt tapers from tea length in the front to ankle-length in the back. That creates a “window” to view the shoes. Pick a contrasting color of footwear similar to what the model is wearing. This dress has hidden pockets on the side seams and an invisible center back zipper.
The Alfred Sung D719 dress features a V-neckline bodice with vertical ruching and a horizontally ruched wide inset waistband. The sleeveless silhouette features wide-set shoulders that frame the torso ideally, so that the arms look long and lean. The V-neckline dips low, but not to plunging depths, keeping everything modest and also lengthening the neck and flattering the face.
The slim, A-line silhouette is popular among bridesmaids because it is one of the easiest to wear. Skimming the hips and creating a smooth shape, it isn’t too revealing. The skirt is gathered with tiny tucks at the waistline, allowing the fabric to flow with a light, airy movement. The chiffon fabric is virtually silent and won’t make a peep during the walk down the aisle.
One of our favorite chiffon gowns this season is the Alfred Sung D718 dress. When you want to create an ethereal, angelic, look for your wedding, there is nothing like the look of flowing chiffon. Soft, wispy, and barely-there, chiffon bridesmaid dresses give you the feeling of floating in on a cloud. Simple and unadorned, it’s directional ruching gives it a unique angular look on the bodice, and a soft crinkle texture that makes it especially easy to wear. Chic and sleeveless, the whole look gives off Grecian overtones, and would be gorgeous for a destination or beachside wedding.
This enchanting Alfred Sung D627 full-length bridesmaid dress features a sleeveless bodice with a v-back and a boat neckline. The boat, or bateau (French) neckline is also known as a Sabrina neckline. It was originally created for sailor shirts, hence the name ‘boat’. The D627 has a bow perched on both shoulders, adding a touch of detail to this ultra clean looking, princess-seamed design. The dress is made from rich Dupioni silk. The pleated, full-length skirt has hidden pockets along the side seams.
Elegance emanates from the classic A-line silhouette of this Alfred Sung D698 bridesmaid dress. The boat, or bateau neckline compliments strong shoulders, accentuating the sleeveless bodice. This is only half of a boat neckline, as the back of the dress opens to a modest scoop. The bodice features princess seams. The D698 silhouette creates an almost perfect hourglass shape, with a cinched-in natural waist leading onto the full circle, high-low skirt.
This one-shoulder Alfred Sung D691 dress will stun in wispy, 100% poly-chiffon knit. For destination or outdoor weddings, there’s nothing like seeing your row of bridesmaids wearing draped, single shoulder dresses, that dance in the breeze. Light and airy, long and layered, this dress is one the girls will actually enjoy wearing. They may even thank you later, when it comes out again for a second appearance. Give your wedding that oceanside, Grecian-inspired look.
A popular design for ladies-in-waiting, fit for a wedding of any theme, is the Alfred Sung D542 bridesmaid dress. This strapless dress begins with a simple, yet stunning, A-line silhouette. This style does wonders when it comes to slimming a woman’s figure. It also provides a truly romantic setting that is a must for any wedding. Upscale side pockets gracefully sit upon the side seams that are just as functional and useful as they are fashionable.
The Alfred Sung D583 bridesmaid dress is another magnificent design with an amazing sense of class and elegance. It uses modest details such as a modest straight strapless neckline. The bodice is made with princess seams to smooth out the design, and long hemline with a matchless tapered high-low hem. The faultless combination of these design elements, together with its magnificent colors, creates one beautiful dress. It is ideal for any special occasion. The two pleats at the front of the skirt makes it slightly full. That contrasts nicely with the clean, smooth sweep in the back.

It breezes down to the floor with ripples of textured luxury. The entire D651 gown is designed in a chiffon, knit material, which is the epitome of quality. It is both fashionable and extremely satisfying.
Solid or two-toned is among the unique qualities of the Alfred Sung D699 dress, all done in rich sateen twill. Princess seams sculpt the strapless bodice, tapering it from the sweetheart neckline towards the cinched-in natural waist. From there, the skirt takes off with front and back pleats, billowing towards the floor with a hi-low hemline stretching from tea to full-length. It is perfect for showing off your favorite heels, as well as adding some much needed variety to the bridesmaid’s line-up.
