The Wedding Planner - Bridesmaid dresses trends for 2014

───   13:30 Tue, 25 Feb 2014

Here are the latest trends when it comes to making sure your bridesmaids look their best! Which colours are in, what accessories should you have and even what shoes work well? I spoke to Gaby Frescura from southboundbride.com – she runs an online wedding portal that specialize in a variety of aspects for your big day but with South African flavour.


-         First I spoke to Gaby about their lovely bridesmaid dress ideas from 2013 – and wanted to know what trends did she see last year? And what nice ideas have they seen so far for 2014?  

Gaby reveals that neutrals are as popular as last year  but this year will see more dark colours appear in accessories such as shoes and flowers. These colours include berries and dark blues. Also popular is peach, mint and coral. But the trend of the year is orchid and off whites.

    Does the rule still apply that your bridesmaids should not wear white if the bride is wearing white? And what about black bridesmaid dresses?


     Are neutral colours still a trend this year? Gaby reveals that although neutrals are still very popular, don't forget the colour blocking trend. White and blue or a skirt and lovely shirt - even that will work as bridesmaid dress.


-         How many bridesmaids should you have? Gaby has the answers below. I also wanted to know more about something that gets all girls excited - shoes!!! Gaby tells us about the current shoe craze where everyone mixes and matches their shoes.


What about your flower girls, what should they wear?
