5 best bridesmaid dress ideas for 2018

It isn’t quite wedding season yet, but it is definitely wedding planning season. So, now is the time to check out what trends and colours are in fashion for 2018. Once upon a time, bridesmaids dresses were well… awful. Thankfully, now there are plenty of beautiful options that set the tone for your day, without upstaging the beautiful bride.

There are certain trends that have cropped up in recent years that are set to continue through 2018, but there are also some outlying options that, while popular, will provide you with a unique fashion statement and look amazing in those wedding photos.

  1. Back To Black

At one time, having bridesmaids dressed in black would have been seriously frowned upon. Luckily, this classic look is being welcomed back into the fold of romance. What it does it create an amazing backdrop for the pops of colour that you choose. Whether it’s red, purple, gold or even chartreuse – it’s going to work well with those black dresses. It sets the tone for a truly romantic affair.

On the other side of the aisle, there’s a good chance there will be a lot of black, so why not lean into the look and use it to your advantage. It means the white of your dress (if that’s the direction you’re going in) is going to stand out even more. Perfect.

  1. The Gown Mismatch

This is something that has been gaining popularity over the last couple of years and it’s set to grow throughout 2018. It’s fairly simple – you can choose a colour and then allow each bridesmaid to choose a dress in a varying shade of that colour or you can choose different colours altogether. What makes this idea great is that it allows each bridesmaid to wear a different style of dress, too. This means each bridesmaid will feel comfortable in what they’re wearing and it can match their personal style and personality, too.

While you can go with different colours, keeping it in shades is probably the better idea, it makes planning your wedding accessories a little bit easier. Which is important if you’re someone who loves colour coordination.

  1. The Hot Colour Trend

Cosmo has spoken and according to the wedding experts, there is just one colour that is on the lips of every wedding planner for 2018. Goodbye blush and hello, Nostalgia Rose. It’s still a shade of pink, but this pink has hints and tones of purple which make it a far more pleasing colour. Which means it is going to date much better than the traditional pink colours we are often attracted to. Of course, you may want to steer clear of this one if you’re looking to plan a unique wedding – either way, now you know.

  1. Velvet

If you are looking to create texture on your big day, then there is no better way to do so than with velvet. The great thing about velvet is that it adds a touch of luxury to any day, so it’s the perfect look for an autumn or winter wedding. If you are having a summer wedding, you can still opt for velvet – especially if you’re having an evening wedding. It comes in a variety of styles and colours, too, so you can capture the perfect look.

For winter, look at deep reds and purples. Going for velvet in spring? Think yellow. An evening affair? Well, any colour will do, no matter the time of year. Just make sure you get the cut of the dress just right.

  1. Pantsuits of Sequins

It makes sense when you think about it – two of 2017’s major fashion trends were pantsuits and sequins. It’s only natural to combine them into one ultimate outfit and launch it at your wedding, right? Exactly right. Your bridesmaids will love you for providing them with a comfortable outfit to wear all day and dance the night away in and your guests will be wowed by your bold and unique fashion choices. Of course, you could push the boat out even further and opt for a wedding pantsuit, too.

If you’re looking for classy bridesmaid dresses for your big day then you must visit Laura Ashley and take advantage of the incredible discount codes on offer. Get in quick, before they expire. This is just a small taste of what is more than likely set to be popular throughout 2018, but not so popular that can’t make these choices with confidence and pride.

Wedding planning is stressful enough, don’t get too caught up panicking about what your bridesmaids are wearing when the decision doesn’t need to be all that bad. Now all you need to do is find your own wedding dress (and make sure your partner is dressed for success, too).
