This is a great place to begin. You may have a colour you want to be the hero of your palette and when it comes to bridesmaid trends, we will often see a few colours per season emerge as favourites. 2016 saw a lot of gold bridesmaid dresses with blush and coral also making a huge impact. Navy bridesmaid dresses are always in style, as the sophisticated colour ties well with the groom’s party and many wedding venues. The biggest bridesmaid trends we have witnessed have been the abandonment of the matching dress and the introduction of beading and bling. 2017 has seen a huge trend of burgundy bridesmaid dresses and masala make-up and flower trends.
With the style of your wedding gown in mind, think about whether you want to match or contrast things like the neckline, hem length and texture with your bridesmaids dresses. If you have a v-neck, perhaps a similar neckline for the bridesmaids will work well. In contrast, if you have a beaded gown, keeping the bridesmaids simple may complement the overall look.
