As important as it is to keep up-to-date with what’s on-trend for the bride herself, we know how vital it is to make sure the bridal party are as happy with what they will be wearing when they walk down the aisle. With such a vast choice of styles, lengths and colours around, it can be quite daunting for you all when you begin. We’ve seen the worry etched on the faces of bridal parties for ourselves when they enter our shop, and we do everything we can to remove the stress and make the experience fun and simple.

Why not get together before you start shopping and talk through some ideas? Have a look at what is on-trend and decide what you like and don’t like. By cutting down your options, the task won’t seem so daunting! So, here we go, the bridesmaid trends of 2018:

Halter Neck
Whether you’re looking for a dress to help create the illusion of curves or flaunt the curves you have, a halter-neck bridesmaid dress is a universally flattering style that all your party will love.

Flowy Tiers
A sheath dress with a layered bodice adds visual interest to a simpler silhouette; while being the perfect solution for those of your bridesmaids who want a standout dress without a lot of add-ons.

High Slits
Floor-length gowns give a sexier look with a thigh-high slit this year, and a side slit shows just the right amount of skin for your wedding.

Lace Details
If too much glitter isn’t your thing, consider bridesmaid dresses that have lace embellishments instead; and for a mismatched look, have your party choose dresses with different lace details.

One Shoulder
Take a cue from ready-to-wear trends and go for a one-shoulder dress for your bridesmaids; it works for every wedding style and dress code.

Painterly botanicals are perfect for a spring or summer wedding and are a beautiful choice if you want to add a bit of colour and flair to your big day, while working well against your white dress.

If you have chosen the princess look for yourself, choose a dress for your bridesmaids in ornate beaded designs that suit full-length and shorter designs.
