London Fashion Week 2015 takes to the stage in the big smoke today and whilst the fashion pack focus on the upcoming autumn trends, this week’s Friday Five is all about this year’s top bridesmaid dress trends…


Marsala bridesmaid dresses


First up is of course Pantone’s colour of the year ‘Marsala’. Rich, earthy and vino-inspired, the rusty red wine colour is a fast becoming a firm favourite with brides the world over. Not only for winter weddings, Marsala works perfectly for a chic city soiree or rustic countryside knees up and creates a beyond-pretty palette when teamed with pastels.

Sequinned bridesmaid dresses


Add some glitz and glamour to your day with sparkling sequin styles for your best maids. They’ll certainly dazzle your wedding guests as they shimmer and sparkle their way down the altar, but don’t worry they still won’t outshine the bride!

Bohemian bridesmaids


Boho is certainly not something new, however this season is all about 70s chic and with that comes a retro twist to our beloved bohemian bridal trend. Bridesmaids can really add impact to your overall wedding look, so embrace flowing maxis, go oversized with your florals and add some haute hippie accessories.

 Bright bridesmaid dresses


Pale and interesting pastels will always be a pretty and popular wedding choice, however over the last few years there’s been a real colour explosion on the wedding scene, with more and more brides opting for bold, bright bridesmaids and wow-factor wedding themes.


Cheerful, vibrant hues certainly create impact and they are ideal if you’re getting married abroad as they will pop against the sunshiny backdrop of your destination day and look even more gorgeous in your wedding photographs.
