The Top Bridesmaid Trends for 2018.

Congratulations! You’re getting married. But now the hard work begins, planning a wedding! We’ve put together some of what we think will be the biggest bridesmaid trends of 2018 for you, to make the task of figuring out what trend will suit your wedding style best, that little bit easier. We know it can be very challenging to find one trend or dress that will suit everyone in your bridal party but good news is one of the biggest bridesmaids trends of 2018 is small, intimate bridal parties! Keeping your bridal party small will straight away cut the battle of finding a dress that suits everyone in half!

When it comes to your bridesmaids, they will be the first thing your guests will see once the ceremony starts. They will set the tone of the wedding and are representing you as they walk down the aisle. They are an extremely important part of your big day so make sure to put a lot of thought into how they look. They are essentially an extension of you on the day so you want them to look amazing standing beside you and as they walk down the aisle. Plus, you’ll have to look at those wedding photos for years to come!

So, let’s get into the hottest trends in the world of bridesmaids for 2018.



We think the mismatch trend is going to be the biggest trend of 2018. It means allowing each member of your bridal party to choose a different dress style in the same colour palette or fabric to tie the look together. This trend will give your bridal party a bit more freedom to express their own personality and styles while ensuring they will all feel beautiful and confident in what they’re wearing while still complimenting your wedding style.


Alila Navy Cold Shoulder Gown Girl In Mind

This relatively new trend on the fashion scene is most definitely spilling over into the wedding world for 2018. A ultra modern twist on the cap sleeve, this would be the perfect choice for an modern bride.

Halter Neck

This universally flattering style is going to be huge in 2018. We think it would be the perfect trend if you want your wedding to be super glam.


Alila Boutique Blush Dipped Hem Gown

After the Royal Wedding of Harry and Meghan you can be sure that bardot necklines are going to be huge, for both brides and bridesmaids! A bardot neckline is a pretty alternative to strapless, a style we’ve seen over and over again. It adds a little extra coverage while still showing just the right amount of skin. We think this trend would be perfect for a vintage inspired wedding.

High Slits

Add a hint of drama to your bridal party with a thigh-high slit. Super chic and sexy. We think this would be perfect for a super edgy bride wanting to show her personality through her bride tribe. 




.A firm favourite year after year for bridal parties but for a reason. This super versatile silhouette works for every wedding style.


Goddess By Nature Sequins Multiway Bridesmaids

A super glam option for the fashion forward bride! We think this would be perfect for a celeb worthy wedding!
