Bridesmaid Dress Trends
There are so many beautiful bridesmaid dresses out there, it can be hard to find the one style that you and your bridal party are going to love! If you’re swimming in a sea of different styles and you’re looking for some direction, then you’ve come to the right spot. These are the top and most beautiful bridesmaid dress trends that you can expect to see this coming year. These styles are all flattering, feminine and perfectly complementary to any bridal dress.
Ruffles are back, and in a big way! Gorgeous romantic ruffles are gracing all of the classic gown cuts this season, making for a delicate and bohemian style no matter what material, colour or pattern the dress might be. Ruffled shoulders and plunging necklines are perfect for beachy or boho weddings whilst dainty ruffled skirts are going to be amazing for the more classic ceremonies. Keep the material simple with crepe, poplin or satin to avoid overpowering the main event, your wedding dress.
The Prairie Cut
Prairie cut dresses have been the choice for some time now, and thankfully this gorgeously graceful trend has made its way into the bridal world! Look for puff sleeves, sweetheart necklines, buttons and waist accentuation in A-line cut styles to nail this trend absolutely perfectly. Lean into the dreamy, girly vibe of this aesthetic and choice delicate floral patterns or soft pastel tones. This will complement any wedding theme amazingly.
Mixing and Matching
Mixing and matching bridesmaid dresses is so much fun and absolutely ideal if you’ve got a beautiful bridal party made up of all shapes and sizes. Choose one colour and pick different cuts, mix up midi, maxi and mini hemlines or go for one dress style in different colours – whatever feels most right for your big day! This one is really fun and great for the creative, colourful bride.
Sumptuous fabrics are having a big moment in 2021. Think luxurious velvet, shining satin and plenty of lace. This is going to be especially amazing for winter weddings! Look for richer, jewel tones or warm toned neutrals to amplify the effect of your chosen luxe fabric. Just be sure that your bridal dress is warm tone or more intricately embellished to fit with your opulent theme.
Ruching is amazing for drawing the eye to flattering elements of your silhouette whilst still sticking to a clean, crisp and contemporary feel. Look for ruching at the waist or hips for a cool modern take on contemporary bridesmaid dresses.
Dreamy Blues and Muted Greens
Muted and misty shades straight from the deep blue sea are storming the fashion world right now. Look for muted greens, soft pastel mints, shady sea foams and touches of duck egg for a bridal party that’s just about as on trend as you can get! Keep the cuts classic and structured to ensure that your wedding photos are all gorgeously graceful and timeless, you’ll be marvelling at them for the rest of your life, after all!
One Shoulder Necklines
The asymmetric neckline never really went anywhere, but the bold and beautiful one shoulder is definitely having a big moment in 2021. Look for column or sheath styles to support the strength of the one shoulder strap. These frocks photograph particularly well.
Lastly, nude shades are classic but their spicy, deep and nuanced iterations are getting a lot of love this year, so why not lean into the classic yet trendy movement? Look for warm toasty cinnamon and chestnut tones for perfectly on trend and timeless bridesmaid dresses.
