Bridesmaid dresses often get a bad rap but one of the easiest ways to combat bridesmaid dress fatigue and achieve a modern aesthetic is looking to the latest bridesmaid dress trends for inspiration. Yes, there are always simple and classic dresses you can lean on for a timeless look, but if you’re craving something that feels “now," what could be better than a trending color, unique silhouette, or fresh fabric?

Whether your bridal party is small with two or three bridesmaids or includes nearly every friend and family member you’ve known since childhood (the more, the merrier, right?!), it can be difficult to land on a bridesmaid dress that works for everyone. But when looking to the latest bridesmaid dress trends, there’s a lot of opportunity to experiment with silhouettes, colors, and fabrics that make everyone in your bridal party happy and comfortable but that also feels in line with your taste and wedding theme.

And while regular fashion trends are a category unto themselves, the latest crazes certainly translate to the bridal world, especially at one of the go-to retailers for all things wedding: BHLDN. Known for curating the freshest styles from leading bridal designers, we went straight to the source and spoke with the BHLDN styling team to find out what the most popular bridesmaid dress trends are for 2019 and 2020.
