Even after you’ve picked your own gown… it’s still all about the dresses and these bridesmaid dress trends will make you happy to have one more dress decision to make. From bold statements to demure looks, we are totally crushing on these four trends that will make your bridal party stand out.


Pastels

For procrastinating brides planning summer weddings, you’ll be happy to know that pastels aren’t just for spring this year. Think long and flowing, think Easter… all year long.

Mismatch

Bridesmaids will go gaga for this idea because it means that they don’t have to be stuffed into the same dress as their bridesmaid counterparts. Gowns that contrast and still “go together” are wildly popular right now. Even gowns in varying shades of the same hue give your wedding party tons of options… and leave you looking trendy.

One Shoulder

One shoulder gowns are always in style but they are particularly popular this year. We especially love chic styles with clean lines and statement bows that grace the shoulder and give a bold pop of personality.

Whites and Greys

Pippa Middleton may have gotten the glory but sister Kate was the reason Pippa was placed in that white gown in the first place. While it’s long been a faux pas to put anyone else in white besides the bride, times are changing leaving bridal parties to take bold steps towards change. If you don’t want to share the spotlight, go grey – another trending color for 2014.
