You've counted down the days, minutes and seconds and the moment has finally arrived: your BFF is finally getting married! And, you cannot wait for all the festivities to begin, with unending sips of champagne and snapping pictures with your gang of mischief-makers. You've waited patiently for this day and it is super-duper important that you look spot-on for her wedding, where your outfit needs to be perfect too.
While, many opt to wear a black bridesmaids outfit, there are many who seek out a more offbeat and vivacious colour, like bottle green. As the bestie of the bride, you deserve to be dressed in a colour that can make heads turn - bottle green, or emerald-green, is a colour that can look both luxurious or laid back, and can fit everything, from a grandiose destination wedding to a more intimate traditional affair. So here's a compilation of our favourite bottle green outfits for bridesmaids to rock this wedding season like a boss!
