Bridesmaids dresses have developed a bit of an infamy over the years, which puffy peach meringues being the favourite choice by brides all throughout the 80s and then rather unflattering shiny taffeta gowns taking the cake in the 90s. Luckily for us, 2020 has brought about a revamp, with brides and bridesmaids working together to find dresses that make everyone happy.
Here we run through the colours we’ll see on bridal parties across the globe in the coming year, and our top picks of dresses in those shades available to shop in Australia.
You may have seen some sand, shell or nude tones walking down aisles in 2019, but we can confirm this trend is going absolutely nowhere. Famously flattering and known to gel well with neutral wedding colour palettes, Sand hues are an easy fit for your easy breezy big day.
Nothing says romance like a hot shade of red, but 2020 is moving away from rose red and leaning into a fruitier alternative: Sangria. Paired with nude or black heels, this hue will have everyone falling in love.
Last year was the year of the olive green bridesmaids dress, but with a new decade brings a brand new (and much more flattering) shade. World, meet Eucalyptus.
Trading out fuchsias and bubblegum bright pinks, the new, grown-up pink set to be seen on bridesmaids in 2020 features soft pastel tiers and berry highlights.
If you’re still on the hunt for your bridesmaids dresses, be sure to get yourself (and your Bride Tribe) tickets to the One Fine Day Wedding Fair where you can watch beautiful bridesmaids dresses walking down the runway.
