2020 brides, assemble! If you're still putting together the details of your wedding, your bridesmaids dresses are probably still on the list of things you need to sort out.
While gorgeous blush pinks have reigned supreme over the last number of years for bridesmaids, brides have also been getting a little more adventurous in their choices. In 2020, we're expecting to see that continue, and we're excited to see what you all come up with.
We're predicting these five bridesmaid dress trends will be among the biggest for 2020...
1. Terracotta shades
While usually a pastel shade or jewel tone takes the top billing for bridesmaid dress colour of the year, this year we're looking at something a little different.
Building on the popularity of yellows and oranges last year, this year we're seeing terracotta tones surging. A surprising shade that's almost universally flattering and super versatile, you can wear these rusty-esque hues any time of the year, though they are particularly perfect for summer and autumn weddings.
2. Mismatched tonal bridesmaids
We've been enjoying the amount of brides allowing their bridesmaids choose different shaped dresses in the same shade, which is so perfect if your bridesmaids are all different shapes and sizes.
Mismatched tonal bridesmaids dresses are the next level of this trend. It's a little harder to plan and pull together, but it'll all be worth it when you get your pictures back in the end. This trend actually works really well around those sunset-y shades and autumnal shades that work well around a terracotta shade bridesmaid dress - two trends in one!
3. Bridesmaids in jumpsuits
Brides in jumpsuits have been a longtime favourite of ours, but we're loving the step away from bridesmaid dresses and into jumpsuits (and even tailored suits). It brings a super modern edge to your party's look, and god knows one-piece suits are a dancefloor friendly pick.
For winter weddings, take the trend a step further and opt for a velvet jumpsuit, as velvet bridesmaid outfits are a sneaky sixth trend coming up the back for weddings later in the year.
4. Cowl neckline bridesmaid dresses
Bring a little 90s vibe to your big day with bridesmaid dressed with cowl necklines. The flirty neckline is often found on another big trend for 2020, the slip dress.
This is a trend that is perfect if you're planning a chic, minimalist look for your big day - your bridal brigade are bound to look effortlessly sleek and elegant in this classic neckline.
5. Mixed gender bridal parties
The mistmatched 'maids trend also allowed a little bit more freedom in how we're choosing our bridal parties. Many brides are now including their best male pals in their parties, which has pushed a few colours to the forefront, as we're seeing gorgeous suits in these hues too.
Blush pink is, of course, a favourite, as well as forest greens, navy, pale blues and maroons, which look fab in both bridesmaid dresses and bridesman suits alike.
