Are you a bride looking for the latest bridesmaid dresses? We have the latest styles in wedding dresses and more.
1. Off-the-Shoulder Bridesmaid Dresses:
First, it was strapless bridesmaid gowns, which is still a favourite in Nigeria, and now we are seeing Nigerian brides offering their best ladies modern and romantic takes of the open, off-shoulder bridesmaid dress style. These neckline dress styles are chic and they can come in different colours and designs.
2. Cowl necklines:
The ’90s are alive and thriving. Cowl necklines are making their return in full force, appearing in both wedding dress and bridesmaid dress trends. You’ll love this bridesmaid look if you’re envisioning a chic minimalist aesthetic for your big day, or if you want your ‘maids to wear lightweight, effortless dresses.
3. Mid-length hemlines:
If neither maxi nor mini dresses are really your thing, there’s a third option we think you’ll love. It’s midi dresses, a.k.a styles that hit mid-calf or just below the knee. This in-between hemline is a demure choice that feels a little bit retro (in a good way!), especially when accompanied by a bustier-style bodice.
4. Halter Necks:
With sleeves and straps still trending for 2020 bridesmaid dresses, we’re also predicting a spike in traditional halter necklines and sleeveless mock-neck styles. This option is ideal for creating a statuesque, formal look. For example, if you’re having a black-tie wedding. The halter neckline complements a range of dress fabrics, from flowy chiffon to curve-hugging crepe and even lace. Have your bridesmaids complete the sleek look with straight hair parted down the centre or an elegant updo.
5. Structured silhouettes:
If you prefer a clean, streamlined look for your wedding party’s attire, you’re going to love this latest bridesmaid dress trend. Structured silhouettes and minimal embellishments are on track to be major themes for bridesmaid dresses in 2020 — call it the Meghan Markle effect if you will.
6. Satin and Silk:
You won’t find any glitter, beading, or sequins here: shiny satin and silk will be the latest ways for your bridesmaids to rock a bit of shimmer in 2020. This slinky fabric is making a comeback, and we are totally on board with its minimalist-inspired look. If you’ve ever heard that satin is a tricky or unflattering fabric to wear, don’t write it off just yet.
7. Romantic Lace:
Lace is one of those wedding elements that surely stand the test of time. And while there are so many traditional ways to bring this feminine fabric into your nuptials, we would like to see you incorporate lace in an unexpected way. How you may ask? Through your bridal party, of course! Featuring the intricate and delicate beauty of lace, Hadassah Bridals has some gorgeous designs perfect for your favourite girls to don on your big day.
8. Architectural Chic:
This season’s bridesmaid dresses combine minimalist with architectural to make an artful statement. Structured gowns work with every body type and present a look that’s both simple and dramatic. Perfect for the stylish bride with modern sensibilities and an appreciation for structure. Your bridal squad is sure to look perfect standing by your side in these one-of-a-kind bridal party dresses.
9. One Shoulder:
First came strapless necklines, followed by cold-shoulder styles, then spaghetti straps, and now one-shoulder gowns. We’re loving the one-shoulder looks in the new 2020 Hadassah bridal party collection. Consider this neckline if you have a lot of bridesmaids since it’s flattering for all body types and bust sizes.
10. Ruffled Bridesmaid Dresses:
We’re not talking layers of frothy tulle, but instead elegantly draped folds, cascading down from the waist, creating a super flattering silhouette. A thigh split adds an extra sultry element, bringing this pretty pink bridesmaid dress style bang up to date.
COLOURS / THEMES
1. Navy Blue or Black Bridesmaid Dresses:
Navy is the new ‘it colours’ in Nigerian bridesmaid fashion, or rather navy blue is the new black. We see some brides shifting away from the usual warmer pastels and soft colours we all associate with bridesmaids to dresses. For brides who love to break the rules, first, it was black, and now navy is where the trend is at.
It is a gold affair. Gold bridesmaid styles to wow you.
3. Dusty Blue:
Blue bridesmaid dresses are a consistently popular choice but 2019 and 2020 find a particularly fetching shade taking centre stage – dusty blue.
