If you are all set to be a bridesmaid this year, there is a lot to look forward to in bridesmaids dress trends. Whether the bride is a fan of classics or prefers current dress styles, there are sensational options to choose from this year. Take a look at this round-up by the fashion experts at Canada’s premier bridal destination, Best for Bride, of what is hot and happening in bridesmaids fashion in 2017.
Stylish single-shoulder dresses
Sexy and glamorous, the one-shoulder neckline detail is a favorite in the wedding world. It is a dress style that allows you to show off your shoulders without baring too much skin. Single-shoulder dresses are best with a defined waistline, though they are available in column and dropped waist designs too. This practical dress style looks flattering on almost everyone, making it a great choice when the bridal party has women with different body types.

Floral patterns on dresses
Floral prints are a popular trend for 2017, as noted in the trend report on the Fashionisers website. This year, the popular print takes on dimensions at either end of the scale, appearing as big and bold prints or as a scattering of miniscule floral motifs. Spring and summer will see many brides opting for floral patterns to liven up their bridal party outfits. This print is a winner at garden weddings. Florals look good in tea-length dresses and full-length gowns.
From make your own mimosa, to signature cocktails, to wine tastings, DIY bars are the hottest here-to-stay trend at bridal showers and bachelorette parties. The best part is, you can be as simple or elaborate as you want when deciding your decor for the bar setup. Our personal favorite is this gold foil print, “pour one more” from StaceyHolbrookDesign.
That’s why we’re so excited to announce an amazing giveaway of two of her gold foil prints! Before we give you all the details on how to win, check out what she had to say during our Q&A.
Nobody ever said a wedding day was without a few imperfect moments. Sometimes these moments are stressful, and other times they are just down right hysterical. As professional as wedding photographers are, they have their small moments of insanity on wedding day.
Trying to gather groups of people in order to check off all the bride’s “must have shots” can be a challenge. That is why it’s easy for us to laugh at the absurd things they sometimes say to get that perfect shot.
When talking to the couple….
If you want the bride and groom to walk away from you while holding hands that’s fine. Directing them into that pose by saying “I want to get you from behind” is just a little creepy.
In most cases, long gone are the days where the bride asks her bridesmaids to match her shoe color to her dress, and we sure are thankful for that!
A popular trend is for bridesmaids to wear sparkly, sequin, or metallic shoes. These shoe colors match many bridesmaid dresses and are easy to find. Here are a list of our favorite picks.
