I’ve seen my fair share of weddings, either as a member of the bridal party or a guest. Some of the bridesmaids dresses were beautiful, and some…well, let’s just leave it at that! I know that, as a bride myself, trying to find a dress that I felt flattered all of my bridesmaids was a tough task, and I ended up picking out a color and letting them pick the style that suited them best. It’s always nice to have options…and with Etsy store hollyxholly, you have plenty of gorgeous options! Based in the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, Canada, hollyxholly specializes in custom made dresses and accessories.

A lot of hollyxholly’s dresses would be great for prom or homecoming, too! Here’s a few of their items that caught my eye:
