Bridesmaid Dress Trends for 2020
Although wrap dresses have been the epitome of comfort, class, and work-to-play functionality for years, they’re just now making their way into the bridesmaid scene. Wrap dresses look laidback but put together, and bridesmaids can actually wear them again.

Southern girls have always loved ruffles, so we have good news. Tiered dresses are a modern way to incorporate ruffles into your wedding without getting too ’80s. These flowy, romantic looks are perfect for spring and summer weddings.

Mauves and Purples
Lavender beat out Millennial Pink as the popular color in 2018, and in 2019, mauves are the coolest upgrade. These shades can range from almost-grey to deep purples, but they’re sure to look beautiful for a fall or winter wedding. Be sure all the bridesmaids try on their shade, though, as some purples and greys can wash certain skin tones out.

Off-the-Shoulder and Cold Shoulder
Off-the-shoulder and cold shoulder dresses bring a gorgeous boho vibe to outdoor weddings. These styles are flattering and easy to wear again since they’re popular outside of the wedding sphere, too.

Dusty blue is the perfect rustic shade for any time of year. Like mauves, these shades can get into the grey range, which is on-trend for modern brides. A great neutral that still has that baby-blue wedding whimsy, dusty blue is definitely here to stay.

Like we said earlier, Southern girls love some ruffles. Bridesmaid dresses are still featuring ruffles but in understated and simple ways. Ruffles can make a dress look preppy and feminine or boho and laidback, depending on the style.

Tea-length or midi-length dresses, like the ones seen here from Show Me Your Mumu, are everywhere in style right now anyway, so it makes sense that they’ve floated over to the wedding sphere. We thought we’d never say this, but these are bridesmaid dresses you can ACTUALLY wear again. Tea-length is a fun diversion from full-length gowns, but it’s still classy enough for Maw Maw's approval. Plus, midi-length dresses can be worn for any ceremony time or wedding season.

Flutter sleeves, like the style seen here from Show Me Your Mumu, are the most delicate trend that we hope doesn’t go anywhere. The flutter sleeve is the perfect happy medium between sleeveless and longer sleeves. It has just enough coverage to make everyone feel comfortable not being bare-armed in all the photos, but flowy, soft fabric keeps them from being too heavy. Plus, they can be worn any and all seasons. Win, win, win! See more on @mumuweddings Instagram page.
