Embrace the bridesmaid trends of 2023, and select some dresses your girls might actually like!
Gone are the days of every bridesmaid needing to wear the same dress. In 2023 & beyond, brides are mixing it up with mismatched bridesmaid dresses, creating truly unique ensembles featuring gorgeous gowns with different styles, fabrics, hemlines, and colours. This long-lasting trend allows you to highlight each individual woman, and ensure she’s wearing a dress that makes her feel great.
Feeling great in bridesmaid dresses will certainly rule in 2023! Being your best mate’s bridesmaid will no longer come with such a sense of impending doom. That overwhelming fear of the non-flattering monstrosity you’ll be expected to wear.
The modern-day bridesmaid, will, and has, so many more choices on the rack. And will no longer have to glug a few pre-ceremony proseccos just to brave that walk down the aisle.
So, what exactly is the chicest way to do bridesmaid dresses in 2023, we hear you ask? Read on because we believe we have the answer.
1. MIX AND MATCH BRIDESMAIDS
Your bridesmaids are (on average) adults. Grown-ups who have been allowed to pick their clothes each day themselves, with very little help or instruction. They’ve even formed a sense of style and identity! So why in 2023 do you think your bridesmaid will be happy about wearing a look that matches 5 other dresses in your group? A dress that they didn’t choose either.
The solution? Mix and match those bridesmaids! This way, your best girls can pick and choose the right silhouette and colour for them. Not only will they actually be excited to wear their dress on the big day, but they’ll bloody love you that little bit more too! Best bride ever!
2. LOOK AMAZING IN A BIG DAY JUMPSUIT
The title of this post may be the chicest ways to do Bridesmaid Dresses in 2023, and the jumpsuit technically isn’t a dress… but when it comes to fashion, who cares about semantics!
Jumpsuits are chic, flattering and look totally rock star. They may be a faff when visiting the loo, but those 60 plus seconds of sitting in a cubicle in nothing but your underwear (or less), will be entirely worth it. Especially when you consider how good you’ll feel flouncing around the reception like Stevie Nicks (Google it kids)!
Whether you want to maintain a traditional wedding vibe or go a bit more out of the box, there’s a bridesmaid jumpsuit to fit your overall wedding style.
3. EMBRACE TONAL
There is nothing more satisfying than a group of bridesmaid dresses in tonal hues of the same colour, it’s like the sweetest sounding harmony. Be it a blend of pinks with tones of dusky, pale and antique. Or blues in a wave of pastels. Tonal bridesmaid dresses are so 2023, and we’re all for it.
4. SELECT BRIDESMAID DRESSES YOUR GIRLS MIGHT ACTUALLY WANT TO WEAR AGAIN
If you see your bridesmaid turning up to a summer party wearing the dress she wore on your big day, how happy are you going to be! She loved that dress, and she’s wearing it again, by choice. Besides that warm gooey feeling you’ll have inside, a dress worn again, is a dress not thrown away. Which is so much better for the environment.
By choosing a dress your girls actually want to wear, and keep in their wardrobe. You’ll be stopping their need to run out to the shops every time there’s a party. Because they’ve got that bridesmaid dress!
In 2023, and beyond, consider paying that little bit more for quality bridesmaid dresses, and you’ll see how they last. Also, if possible, look for a gown that can be transformed with a snip and a stitch. That way, your girls could have a whole new dress for summer with just a few hemline alterations.
