Bridesmaid dresses can often look old-fashioned and overly formal, however, there are a number of new trends that are perfect for you if you hate most bridesmaid dresses. From yellow florals to interesting separates, these trends will keep your Whatsapp group happy, and they will be able to wear them long past the ceremony too. Keep scrolling to see the five bridesmaid dress trends that we're most excited about for 2018.
1. Yellow Florals
One of the key dresses trends for 2018 is yellow floral dresses, and this works perfectly for bridesmaids. This Self-Portrait off-the-shoulder maxi is a real wedding winner, and bridesmaids can rewear it after the ceremony too.
When it comes to divisive bridesmaid dresses, pastel shades often cause the most debate within a Whatsapp group. However this season pastels are the key colour, and instead of opting for a sickly, tricky colour opt for a cooler, more neutral shade like this icy blue dress from Ghost.
If you're wanting an outfit that you can tweak for each bridesmaid and will suit different body types, then separates are the way to go. Keep the maxi the same, such as this tulle skirt from Needle and Thread, and then each bridesmaid can play with different tops.
4. Princess Maxis
If you want your bridal party to wear something a little different from the multistrap maxi dress norm, then opt for a red carpet–worthy gown covered in whimsical embellishments.
5. Vintage Tea Dresses
The thing about bridesmaid dresses in 2018, is that you don't have to shop within the bridesmaids' section. One of our favourite dress trends right now is floral tea dresses, which is another dress that your friends can wear long after their bridesmaid duties.
