Who said bridesmaids were limited to dresses when there’s the fashion-forward jumpsuit? It’s a versatile piece that fits for any kind of wedding, be it a garden wedding, beach wedding, or a traditional church wedding. In fact, it is also appropriate for other occasions, like work or an evening at the bar. Furthermore, the jumpsuit is very easy to style. Choose any color, or a multitude of colors, or even prints, and the piece would still look elegant and chic. If you want your bridesmaids to feel comfortable and classy at the same time, consider the jumpsuit.

Tea Length

More emphasis will be placed on practicality in 2019, as designers are going for tea length dresses instead of the usual flowing gowns. Tea length refers to hems that reach mid-calf. According to Love to Know’s detailed guide to tea length dresses, the style is reminiscent of the retro glamour of Hollywood’s golden age. Current tea length designs feature satin bows, tulle skirts, and lace trimmings.

Velvet Party

Velvet dresses are looking to make a comeback in 2019. The fabric may not be as light as chiffon, but it does add a striking element to the dress. A velvet dress would look stunning in wedding photos, because of the way the fabric creates shadows and illuminating sections. That’s why it fits for bridesmaids of all body types. Just imagine a group of bridesmaids in velvet standing next to a bride in a white gown, and you’ll realize how complementary velvet is.

Mismatched Entourage

It’s the 21st century, and bridesmaids are no longer obligated to wear matching gowns. That’s a trend that will remain for the next years to come. As to why it’s a popular choice, one only need to look back on a certain scene in the 2011 film Bridesmaids. The group of ladies enters a bridal shop, and each tries on different bridesmaid’s dresses. All of them looked great, and yet the staff advised to choose only one dress for all.

Bridesmaids is an iconic movie, and many brides and wedding planners reference it from time to time. There is even a Bridesmaids-themed browser game on Slot Source to remind fans of the movie’s legacy. The game shows the cast’s dress styles, which were intentionally designed to be tacky. In hindsight, the film produced some valuable lessons on weddings. Perhaps that scene alone helped people realize that matching bridesmaids gowns aren’t necessary anymore.

Each of your bridesmaids can stand out with a different dress style and colour. The goal is not for the bridesmaids to upstage the bride’s look, but rather, to find a dress that is fitting and flattering for them.

2019 is nearing, so let’s hope this list helps you decide your bridesmaids’ looks. For a fun reference, you can check out Bridal Fantasy’s 2015 bridesmaids trends, and see how the styles have evolved.
