Top Bridesmaid Fashion Trends Right Now

The bridal fashion industry is always circulating through hot new styles and colours. If you are due to get married and shortly turning your attention to what your maids will be wearing, you will want to take a few minutes to check out what Zara Wakefield, Bridesmaid Specialist at London based bridesmaid boutique, Confetti Bridesmaid has to share with us on top bridesmaid fashion trends. 

Here are the top trends for bridesmaids that you will want to be checking out: 

First things first know what type of look you’re going for before you start making appointments. Every style of bridesmaid dress can be seen online, so research is easy (and fun!) to do and will save time later. 

Bridesmaid style has come a long way. Gone are the days of everyone wearing the same dress. Today, brides are mixing it up with mismatched bridesmaid dresses, creating truly unique ensembles featuring gorgeous dresses with different styles, fabrics, hemlines, and colours. The trend allows you to highlight each individual woman and ensure she’s wearing a dress that makes her feel great.

If you’re going to commit to using different bridesmaid dresses, you might just want to go all out. For a really stunning look incorporate both different designs and colours into your bridal party ensemble. Just be certain that once all dresses are selected, you have the time to see them together—a bit of cohesiveness is key here.

If you want your bridal party to have a more uniform look, try choosing dresses from one designer. Most designers have a variety of dresses within the same colour family in different fabrics and silhouettes for you and your bridesmaids to choose from.

Choose one design aspect

While alternating colours, styles, silhouettes, or all of the above, it’s important to have one design component that ties all the looks together for a cohesive aesthetic. Perhaps a rhinestone belt or hairpiece can do the trick. If you’re alternating dress colours, represent each colour in the bridesmaid bouquet for stunning photos

Seasonal colours

Season, look to seasonal flowers for wedding colour inspiration. Be open to the option of having a selection of colours from the same spectrum… Variations of berry and purples for example would create a gorgeous picture-perfect palette. As well as the time of year, ensure your dress colour and style reflects the time of day you’ll be marrying.

If you are planning a seaside ceremony or light and fun summer nuptials, we recommend short bridesmaid dresses as they are just as bridal as long bridesmaid dresses but without the fuss of all that fabric. Flirty, easy-to-wear and perfect for any girl in your party, short bridesmaid dresses can complement any wedding party. Whether you want a short chiffon dress, something with sequins, or even a tea-length bridesmaid dress.

Glamourous silouettes

Sleek silhouettes and all over, iridescent shimmer bring a throwback glamour we love. Statement-making matte sequin is never too much in a bridal party that was made for standing out. Whether you love the all-over look or prefer the Art-Deco-inspired pattern of Nouveau Sequin, these sequin bridesmaid dresses can’t be ignored. Perfect for an enchanting New Years Eve wedding but stylish enough for a captivating Hamptons ceremony, you truly cannot go wrong with this bridesmaid look.

Our last piece of advice and what we consider to be the most important take your friends’ various body shapes into consideration before selecting bridesmaid dress silhouettes.
