Choosing one dress for all of your bridesmaids is not an easy task. Since your bridesmaids are likely to have different body shapes, therefore wear different sizes, selecting one type of dress that will flatter all of them is nearly impossible.
This, combined with a ton of other obligations related to your wedding, can make the whole wedding-planning extremely overwhelming. So, we decided to offer a helping hand in the process of choosing the bridesmaid dresses, by showcasing a variety of dress options that will tick at least some of the most important boxes such as style, comfort and of course, color.
In 2020, bridesmaid dresses are more fashion-forward than ever, therefore you should aim for something really special for your girl gang.
These are the five no-fail bridesmaid dress trends that will look breathtakingly beautiful on every single one of bridesmaids on your big day.
#1 Satin & Silk
In order for your brides to rock a bit of shimmer in 2020, silk and shiny satin is the way to go. These slinky fabrics are making a comeback and we are completely on board with such minimalist-inspired but sophisticated look.
The truth is - satin can be quite tricky but do not rush to write it off just yet. Unlike in the past, today, there are versatile types of satin such as stretch satin that makes the material perfect for nearly any type of dress. For instance, if all of your bridesmaids wear a different dress size, consider going for a stylish wrap satin dress that will perfectly fit all of them. When it comes to the color, you can opt for gray, mint, beige or another light color since these are going to be the colors of the season.
In case you want to somehow match your bridal look to the look of your bridesmaids, you can pick a bouquet in the color of the bridesmaid dresses' or you can purchase a same-colored wedding necklace and earring sets. If all of this seems a bit too much, choose bridal hair accessories in the color of your bridesmaid dresses.
Believe us when we say - everybody will notice the effort to make a connection between you and your bridesmaids, no matter how small or big it is, so we encourage you to go for it!
#2 Mid-Length Hemlines
If neither mini or maxi dresses are really your thing, there is a third option - mid-length dresses, that we think you are going to absolutely love. These dresses, also known as mid-calf dresses, have a length that is right below the knee. Such in-between hemline feels and looks retro but in all the good ways, especially if your bridesmaids choose to combine it with pearls.
The mid-length hemlines, not only look incredibly beautiful and classy, but they are also super practical, meaning that your bridesmaids will not have to worry about revealing too much skin or tripping over the dress while on the dance floor.
Just like the silk dresses, this type of dress looks amazing no matter the size and the color you go for. In case you are striving for the most fashionable take possible, select a midi skirt that shows a little bit of leg in a neutral color, giving all of your bridesmaids the freedom to choose their own accessories.
Another option for the color of your bridesmaid dresses is to have them match the wedding theme or some items of your bridal jewelry. Either way, you cannot go wrong with choosing this type of dress.
#3 Cowl Necklines
As you probably figured out by now, the '90s trends are coming back and we are not angry at all! Among the trends that are alive and thriving, there are the cowl necklines that make a full-force return.
This year, the cowl-neckline dresses are appearing as both, a bridesmaid dress as well as a wedding dress trend. Therefore, if you are envisioning your bridesmaids in a minimalist but chic, flirty dress for your big day, you will want to consider choosing such a dress for them. Because this dress revolves around its neckline, it allows you and your bridesmaids to design the bottom according to everyone's wishes.
The whole point of selecting such a dress is to keep the neckline as sophisticated as it is and to make the dress in a classy color that will divide your bridesmaids from the rest of the guests. The bottom, depending on the style and wish of the bridesmaid, can be a full-length or mid-length dress.
Regardless of its length, such a dress trend cannot go unnoticed so best believe everyone will be able to pinpoint your girls for their distinctive stylish dresses.
#4 Long Fitted Gown
Long gowns never really go out of fashion. From weddings to grand openings and gala dinners, these dresses are perfect for every special occasion.
Although long fitted dresses are beautiful and elegant, it is true that they are not really everyone's first choice. Since this dress type does not equally flatter all body shapes, there are women who avoid wearing any sort of fitted dress at all costs. So, it is needless to say - before choosing your bridesmaids' dresses, first, talk to them about whether or not you should even consider this dress type.
Once you have approval from your bridesmaids, the next thing you should pay attention to is the color. Generally, long dresses, regardless of whether they are fitted or not, are highly noticeable, which means you should really think hard about the color.
In case you are having a vibrant spring wedding with lots of colors, opt for a color that is already a part of your wedding theme. Opposite than this, if you are having a subtle, neutral-colored wedding, then pick Earthy tones such as light gray, pastel peach, blush pink, or sky blue. To make sure your look matches your bridesmaids' look add a piece of wedding jewelry that is in the same color as your girls' dresses.
#5 Flutter Sleeve Dress
Last on the list are the flutter sleeve dresses.
Considering the fact you are having a spring wedding, these dresses are perfect for the season. The flutter sleeves definitely scream 'springy' vibes and making the dresses a pastel color will be just an icing on the cake, effortlessly assembling your wedding theme. This dress type is also great if you are having trouble picking the right fit for all of your bridesmaids.
By going with a flutter sleeves dress, you will give your bridesmaids the freedom to choose the length and the overall design of the dress, therefore everyone will feel as pretty and confident wearing such an outfit.
