Your bridal party needs to look just as fabulous in their own right, as you will on your wedding day. Eyes will be watching as your Maid of Honour and bridesmaids attend to you throughout the ceremony and reception. So be sure to make a statement with your ‘Bride Tribe’ by considering the trending 2021 bridesmaid dress styles.
Big and Bow-tiful:
Bows are beautiful and this year, the bigger the better! Oversized bows that bring drama to the back of the dress or even on the front will give some ‘oomph’ to what otherwise may be a very simple fit and style. Whether organza, satin or even a contrasting colour consider how your girls will look with a bountiful bow!
Shouldering the task:
Whilst your bridal gown makes waves with statement sleeves, your bridesmaids can be shouldering a style of their own. Structured, shaped shoulders on their dresses give way to strapless dresses and make for a memorable style ensemble. Don’t think you need to go down an 80’s shoulder-padded revival – Just think pleats, puffs and texture.
Red Carpet Glamour:
Luxury fabrics are also featuring heavily amongst bridesmaid dresses in 2021. Think crushed velvets, embroidered panelling, bejewelled bodices cascading into glamorous skirts. After a year trapped indoors with dressing gowns being the only gown, go all out and evoke an A-List event with your bridesmaids. Your bridesmaid dresses don’t even have to be the same style – just united through their fabrics.
Love and Flowers:
Bohemian vibes are making a strong comeback this year. Floating loose-fit garments, with fringing and floral accents are a must-have for any bohemian bridesmaid. Soft chiffon, antique lace and embroidery make for an aesthetic that brings an understated natural beauty to your bridesmaid’s dresses. Finish the look with a floral hairpiece and you girls are good to go!
Flapping Good Girls:
The roaring 20’s may be but a century ago, when flapper girls and Jay Gatsby burst onto the scene. Although a callback to one of the most carefree and glamourous ages of partying, extravagance and gin drinking would not go amiss this year. Beaded fringing, geometric sequin detailing, and glittering headpieces that look straight out of Tiffany’s will dress your bridesmaids head to toe in timeless, vintage glamour.
