New fashion trends are really mixing things up for bridesmaids; the stiff unflattering matching dresses are out and gorgeous mix match gowns are in. Here are some tips on making sure your bridal party looks and feels beautiful in their dresses.
Same color, different styles
Bridesmaids don’t have to all be identically-attired. If your ladies all have different body shapes, you might want to dress them in different styles, but create a sense of continuity by having them all in the same color. Each bridesmaid can pick out a dress that SHE feels confident in and flatters her body type.
Different colors, Same style
Create a beautiful array of blues or purples or whatever color you want while still using the same silhouette of dress. You will get a mix matched look that will stun your guests.
The minimalist/clean look is also popular right now, and newest trend is all white bridesmaids dresses. It is understandable why some couples would not like this, mainly being that it would divert the spot light from the bride. However, there are ways to get that clean all white look without doing that. Options are keeping the bridesmaid dresses extremely simple, using short dresses instead of long flowy gowns like your own, use different fabric, or go for different necklines and silhouettes.
The 1920’s Art deco look is making a comeback and its more beautiful and elegant than ever. Sequins and glitter- especially in gold- create a stunning and classy look when paired with autumn and winter tones.
And finally, the hottest trend of the season for all your ladies are tuxes… 🙂
