As traditions fall by the wayside, this wedding season is set to blossom like we’ve never seen it before. There’s joy to be had, crowds to be invited and best friends to walk each other down the aisle in bridesmaid dresses that one day they may just wear again (and again and again). Lately, bridal parties have been ditching the matching dresses, instead offering a colour palette for their ladies in the wing to choose cuts unique to their style. Model Caroline Brasch Nielsen really pioneered this craze back at her 2018 wedding when her girl gang floated across the canal in a fun mix of white, sky blue and limoncello — showcasing dresses that were all equally romantic and puffy yet individually quirky. After the pandemic, formalities are officially dissolved and so bridesmaid dresses are leaning more into the modern and stylish note rather than screaming classic wedding parties only.
So what are the biggest bridal trends right now?
Gentle ruffles, dramatic bows and subtle floral prints are tapped to be chicest options for upcoming special occasions. Never underestimate the power of a simple slip dress, especially when multiplied with a striking cut or delicate strap detailing. Strapless dresses are also a popular option for summer weddings, while midi dresses prove to be an everlasting favourite. Keep an eye on the key womenswear designers like Bec + Bridge, CAMILLA AND MARC and Shona Joy who have made a reputation for designing a bride’s perfect match.
How do you style bridesmaid dresses?
Accessorising the bride tribe with playful jewellery, like necklaces, bracelets and hoop earrings help add a sentimental touch to their wedding outfit. Adding glitzy clutches and statement shoes can take the look to a new level and add personality to any dress for the special day.
