One of the glittery wedding elements that is making a big impact on the wedding world today are sequence bridesmaids dresses. Metallic colors offer the perfect color palette for every season. Pick shades of light pink, beautiful rose gold or nudes if you are looking to keep the look less formal.
Fitted mermaid styles:
Another expected trend on the internet right now is this sophisticated sexy look. Mermaid style dresses give your girls the opportunity to show off their hourglass figure and can actually be a very flattering silhouette depending on the fabric. Although most bridesmaids’ lines may not offer this silhouette brides are opting to choose social occasion pieces to get this look.
Lace and weddings go together like cake and icing. Lace is nothing new when it comes to wedding attire. Pastel shades like blush and lavender complement this romantic fabric. For a more formal look, brides are choosing long dresses versus short dress.
You don't have to create a huge floral crown and search Etsy for hours looking for "boho accessories" to nail the look. Flutter sleeves, textures and prints can turn a classic bridesmaid dress into a boho-chic look with ease.
Black dresses are purely chic but do try pops of color on your bouquet to make a bold statement. If you are going for a formal classic look this is a timeless style.
Same color different fabrics:
While some designers may say this is a fashion no-no because different fabrics present different shades, this nontraditional approach is the definition of a win-win. The bride can easily pick the colors she wants and the bridesmaids get to pick the style that fits them best.
