7 Bridesmaid Dress Trends for 2017
When it comes to weddings, Southerners have a keen eye for both adopting and creating the latest trends and fashions. We already know that Southern wedding parties are some of the most fun in the country, and that Southern brides are some of the most beautiful. But in our opinion, we also have the best bridesmaids dresses. From short bridesmaids dresses to long bridesmaids dresses, we’ve compiled 2017’s trendiest silhouettes that we predict will be making their way down to a wedding near you.
Tea length dresses (dresses with hemlines falling from above the ankle to below the knee) are having a major matrimonial moment in both bridal gowns and bridesmaids’ dresses. We love them because they can be both modest and trendy at the same time.

Universally flattering and ultra-feminine, flutter sleeved gowns are popping up all over Pinterest for a reason.

Lace and weddings go together like cake and icing, but textured cotton lace brings a fresh feel. A short lace dress is fitting for a summer wedding in the sweltering South.
Dressed up lace gowns in deeper shades and longer silhouettes work for winter weddings, too.
For a more non-traditional wedding party, two-piece outfits are a trendy way to change up classic silhouettes, and give bridesmaids the ability to customize their separate pieces.
This clean-cut crop top and pleated high-waisted skirt show that the trend can be crisp and classy.
Bold and Bright
Perhaps as a direct result of the abundance of pastel shades like mauve, blush, and mint that we’ve seen over the past year, bolder colors are coming back in style.
Bold, Bright Red
Our favorite bold shade to resurface? Cherry red.
As prevalent as ombré-dyed hair has been, the transfer of the fad over to the wedding world comes as no surprise. Done right, the color variation is tasteful and modern.
The whimsical trend is the next step in the choose-your-own-dress trend, which first caught on when brides began having bridesmaids choose different styles in the same color.
Before you gasp, there’s a huge difference between an all-white wedding party and breaking the rule about never wearing white to a wedding. Mainly, the bride approves. An all-white party exponentially elevates a wedding’s elegance.
With celebrities like Solange Knowles showing us how it’s done, we’re tempted to white-out all weddings.
