White Runway South Africa guides us as we highlight four stylish bridesmaid dress trends to look out for in 2016 —from one colour dresses in mismatching styles, to an all white bridal party which lends itself to the runways from recent international bridal shows. So, think a little fashion-forward this year and mimic the gorgeous trends you see coming down the runway.



One Colour & Different Styles

Brides and Bridesmaids are loving the idea of one colour in different styles for their bridal party. This is a huge trend at the moment as it keeps within the bride’s colour style. This is great when you have a bridal party consisting of different sizes and shapes. It’s now more about getting the right ‘party dress’ as opposed to a uniform.







White Bridesmaid Dresses

We will continue seeing a trend towards whiter and lighter bridesmaid dresses which will start to look like bridal gowns. In the most recent bridal shows in New York we saw a huge trend towards pink wedding dresses by designers such as Vera Wang. This will further push the trend towards having bridesmaid dresses whiter and bridal gowns with more colour. Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian have made this trend extremely popular. It adds a sense of serenity and the all white bridal party looks uniformed and pure.




Ombre Tones

There will also be an ombre bridesmaid dress trend. Moving away from the uniform look, bridesmaids will be wearing different tones of the one colour.
Ombre pinks, peaches and purples will be the most popular. Ombre tones are great in photos and again allow bridesmaids to pick and choose the colour that best suits them.




Lace Dresses & Embellished/Sequin Dresses

Dresses with more detail that make each dress a little more special is also a big trend at the moment. Brides are loving lace and sequin dresses to make their bridal party look and feel more elegant and sophisticated. This works particular well for evening weddings as the embellished dresses catch the light beautifully. Lace dresses add a romantic and vintage feel to the wedding.
