Are you a bride or groom-to-be set to say ‘I do’ in 2020?

As you might imagine, here at HOORAY!, we’re lucky enough to feast our eyes on a lot of nuptials (…and when we say a lot, we mean a lot!). So, it’s safe to say we know a thing or two about wedding trends.

Just call us fortune tellers – because we’ve put together a list of our top six bridesmaid trend predictions for 2020 weddings. Think: 90s silhouettes, fresh colourways, and barely-there make-up …just to name a few!

And before we get stuck in, remember: don’t feel like you need to follow a trend, just because it’s what everyone else is doing! We’re for the trend-buckers, as much as we’re for the latest-fashion lovers. Whether you’re a fashion follower or a rebel-hearted babe, there’s a bridesmaid look to suit every kind of rendezvous.

Now, settle in as we spill our top six predictions for bridesmaid trends for 2020.

1. Sage and Gold Colour Palettes

We forecast sage and gold as two major colours we’ll be seeing throughout weddings in 2020 and beyond. These luxe hues are versatile, fresh and totally unexpected, making them the perfect hues for a killer bridesmaid look.

2. Barely-there makeup

We predict we’ll continue to see barely-there makeup and undone, relaxed hair into 2020 and beyond. This minimalistic approach focuses on enhancing your natural beauty, rather than competing with it.

Try this stripped-down look for a youthful, effortlessly chic vibe.

3. Individual Bridesmaids

Say farewell to the days of bridesmaids marching down the aisle as clones in identical dresses. In 2020, we expect to see maids in a range of gowns suited to their individual sense of style, ensuring everyone within the bridal party feels amazing in a shape that flatters their figure.

Consider bridesmaids donning a range of silhouettes in the same colourway—or alternatively, opt for a mix of unique silhouettes within a specific colour palette.

4. Glossy Slip Dresses

Slip dress fans rejoice—because there’s no sign of this 90-inspired silhouette going anywhere!

Rather, we expect to see bridesmaids rocking slip dresses in a range of different lengths—from midi right through to floor-skimming full-length frocks.

One of our favourite things about this dress is its versatility—so you can bet your bouquet that your bridesmaids will be rocking this gown around town, long after your nuptials are over!

5. Statement Accessories

Statement accessories have been making waves towards the end of this year, so it’s no surprise that we see this trend following us into 2020 (…and we’re not mad about it!).

We foresee brides opting for individual statement pieces for each bridesmaid, rather than going down the traditional path of adorning each of their gal pals the exact same piece.


6. Voluminous Sleeves

All hail voluminous sleeves! Ever-flattering and oh-so-fun, we seriously can’t get enough of statement sleeves and their subtle nod to 70s fashion.

We’re sure we will be seeing many a bridesmaid flaunting this carefree style in 2020.
