White on White

White is not only reserved for the bride. These days, brides are opting for stylish and sexy white dresses for their bridal squad. Not only is it clean and chic, but adds amazing contrast to your photos - especially if your girls have lush and bright bouquets. Try long and flowy dresses with cut out details for a boho chic look or structured and fitted for the ultimate glam look.

Whether you opt for vintage lace or a more contemporary look, your all white bridal look will be sure to turn heads.

Florals

As if we could ever really get enough - we have been (and always will be) crushing on florals. Whether it is dramatic and oversized or in a beautiful pattern, florals just always have a way of leaving a lasting impression. Not only is it a pretty accent, but the devil truly is in the detail. Opt for volume skirts in a moody floral pattern or full gypsy style gowns with dainty floral detail. Accent this look with block heels and tassels to add some drama.

Catsuits

We are loving this trend and would love to see more bridesmaids in this stylish look. Add the ultimate tailored sophistication to your bridal squad and opt to have them in catsuits instead of the traditional dress. Include stylish details such as a low back, pockets, deep v or even capped sleeves. Pair with killer heels and bold jewellery to take this look to bridesmaid heaven.

Colour Play

With the gorgeous colour palettes seen in the 2018 and 2019 season so far, many brides are introducing a lot more colour into their bridesmaid attire. Opt for varied colours or complimentary colours that pickup your wedding colour scheme. For example - if you have chosen to work with a fall colour palette for your big day introduce mustards, marigold, rust, blush pinks and terracota into your bridal look. Not only will colour play make for incredible photo opportunities but your bridesmaids will compliment your stylish reception look perfectly.

Classic & Stylish

Sometimes sticking with the classics has it perks; they are classics after all which means they work. If you opt to have all your bridesmaids look the same, perhaps consider adding something to make the look pop. Try bell sleeves, statement jewellery or even intricate beading and lace overlays. Either way, it will look absolutely breathtaking and your stylish bride tribe will be the talk of the town.
