Get The Bridesmaid’s Scoop
Tradition is one thing that has certainly been creeping down to a second place position when it comes to what a bride wants for her special day – and bridesmaids dresses are no exception to this rule! Brides have been encouraging their bridesmaids to hold more reigns in choosing their looks. With all of the different bridesmaids trends popping up, here are our top 5 picks.
1. Mismatched Yet Stylish
Cohesive and elegant has been the mantra for most bridesmaids dresses in the past. While there are still plenty of ways to mix tradition with uniqueness, these bridesmaids have taken the cake for diversity. They’ve definitely put together the perfect “mismatched” spin we all love. As long as you have a group of girls who can appreciate fashion, think outside of the box, and understand the importance of matching the theme, you are set. Who said your bridesmaids have to all wear the same thing? This is 2018 and bridesmaids are bringing the HEAT!
2. Black Is Chic
Black is BACK! Weddings have never looked as elegant and chic as they do with all black bridesmaid dresses. The color black is a great way to bring your wedding party together in a unique and effortless way without downplaying the beauty your bridesmaids. Black brings out the mystery of a woman and will definitely have your wedding guests ooo-ing and ahhh-ing at the originality in your decision.
3. Romantic Lace
The bride and groom aren’t the only ones who get to bring the romance to the party! Bridesmaids are reworking the wedding day with lace and floral embroidery. This trend is timeless, and yet again, we are wondering why we’ve never seen this done before – its genius. Unique and fitting, the tone is certainly set for a romantic evening. Well done, ladies!
4. Cultural Traditions
Whether it be from the groom’s side or the bride’s side, more and more couples are embracing their cultural backgrounds and weaving them into their special day. This doesn’t exclude bridesmaids and their dresses either. In fact, the traditions of the past look stunning on all bridesmaids and gives your bridal party a taste of who you and your family are. Traditional weddings of all ethnicities have never looked so good on bridesmaids.
5. Wearing WHITE?!
Yes, we said it! Bridesmaids are wearing white like they’ve never worn white before – and brides are loving it! To put it simply, brides are saying goodbye to traditional “do’s and don’ts” especially when it comes to their bridesmaid’s dresses. Women are embracing their friends and including them on their special day more than ever. This bold statement solidifies that when it’s YOUR special day, feel free to do whatever you want!
At the end of the day, your happiness on your special day is all that matters. So even if your choice for your bridesmaid dresses seems non-traditional to others, follow your heart. Need more tips for your special day? Check out our Engagement Checklist!
