Bridesmaid dresses have evolved over the years, and they’re still changing. Here are some of this year's fun and fresh Bridesmaid dress trends!

Same Color, Different Styles

All bridesmaids have different preferences, and feel good in different dresses. Not everyone feels comfortable in a strapless or backless dress. That’s why it’s great to offer your Bridesmaids different styles of dresses! There are different sites that have also noticed this trend. On these sites, brides can choose the color and different styles of dresses or jumpsuits that their Bridesmaids can then go look at. These sites allow your girls to pick the dress that they feel most comfortable in, which makes the day even better for everyone!

Mixed Textures

Another trend we’ve seen this year is mixing different textures, whether it be with bouquets or bridesmaid dresses. Different textures add a unique and boho feel to any bridal party. This also allows for the individuality of your bridesmaids to shine through. Different textures to add include floral prints, velvet, satin, lace, and beading. Let your bridesmaids play with ideas, and then have some fun putting together different textures with them!

Bridesmaids in Jumpsuits

Not everyone loves wearing dresses, so why not offer your bridesmaids another option? Jumpsuits have made an appearance this year in the wedding scene due to more casual weddings. They are a great addition, and they come in all different textures and styles! They’re perfect if you want to add an unconventional option for your bridesmaids. Jumpsuits can also be dressed up or down depending on the overall dress code for your big day.

Cowl Necklines

Cowl necklines have come back in every area of the fashion industry, and bridal-wear is no exception. Cowl necked dresses come in all different styles that suit any bridesmaid. Like any other dress, they are offered with capped sleeves, spaghetti straps, mid length, or full length. They also come in many different colors and textures. Stay on trend this year by incorporating cowl necklines into your bridesmaid dress lineup!

Satin Dresses

Satin has become the fabric of 2021. It’s almost impossible to look for dresses without seeing satin on your screen! It has a more formal look and feel, which adds elegance to your bridal party. This fabric can be a bit daunting because it is known for being unforgiving, but there are new stretch satin fabrics that are more flattering on all body types. Stretch satin also allows for freer movement, which means that everyone will be able to bust a move on the dance floor!

Black Dresses

More and more brides are choosing to incorporate black into their color palettes. Black is a classic, sleek, and elegant color that can be found in just about any department store your girls may be shopping at for dresses. It’s an easy color to find, which is great if you’re wanting to mix textures, styles, and accessories!

Don’t be afraid to incorporate more than one of these trends into your bridal party’s dress lineup!
