Trends in Bridesmaid Dresses

Perhaps women as a whole are more confident than they once were, so brides no longer feel the need to make their bridesmaids look hideous so they look good by comparison. Or maybe brides have realised that ugly bridesmaids’ dresses make ugly wedding pictures, and nobody wants that. Whatever the reason, gone are the days of fuchsia bridesmaids’ dresses with puffy sleeves. These days brides want their bridesmaids to look sleek, svelte and subtle. Here are a few of our favourite bridesmaids’ dress trends at the moment. 

Pastels

Weddings and pastels go together like, well, a horse and carriage, and as long as folks are saying, “I do”, pastels will be on trend. This is the perfect choice for a couple that wants their wedding to have a timeless look. Of course your wedding will have a colour scheme, so make sure your bridesmaids’ dresses are in keeping with it, and try to pick a colour that all the girls look good in. Blues and greens will be your safest options, as warmer tones tend to make people with paler skin look washed out. 

Jewel colours

If you are keen to bring your wedding into now, then you will want to look at some jewel coloured options. Think ruby red, emerald green and sapphire blue. To make the dresses look even more dramatic, have them made up in a shiny fabric, such as satin, to really set off the jewel theme. If you are going for the jewel option though, it’s important that you keep the designs very simple. Ruffles, pleats and bows will only throwback to a time that was cringe worthy for bridesmaids. 

Mismatched

When you think of bridesmaids’ dresses, many people picture identical frocks. But it doesn’t have to be that way. As long as the dresses complement each other, as well as the bride’s own dress, the bridesmaids can look quite different. You can either have all the dresses made out of the same fabric but in different styles – each one to suit the body shape of each bridesmaid. Or you can go a step further and have them in different colours too – as long as they are within the wedding’s colour scheme. 

Vintage

If it is a vintage themed wedding with mismatched antique crockery, a variety of table settings, and the bride is wearing her grandmother’s dress, it might be nice to go down the retro-chic route when it comes to the bridesmaids’ dresses. This choice is a step further from the mismatched option as each dress will be completely different, but if the tones are similar and they are from the same time, it could create a charming, eclectic feel. 

Surprise

With the economy being what it is these days, many brides are relying on the bridesmaids paying for their own dresses. One of the drawbacks of this for the bridesmaids is that they will have to spend a pretty penny on a bunch of dresses they will never wear again. So if the bride is not a bridezilla, why not leave the choice up to the bridesmaids themselves? The bride can tell them about the colour scheme and whether they would prefer something long or short, then allow the rest to be at the discretion of the bridesmaids. That way they get to spend their hard earned money on a dress they actually like.
