Maids, And Mothers, And Tux Trends–Oh My!
As if dressing yourself for your wedding day wasn’t enough work, you also have to style everyone else in your bridal party! But, fear not, we’re here and we’re going to break down all of the latest wedding trends for mothers, maids, and menswear.
Before we get into the latest fashions for mothers and maids, let’s talk color. Weddings have finally broken free of the neutrals that had such a hold on us for what feels like forever and we’re seeing a big return to color and no one is more excited than us! The big colors for the coming wedding season are dusty blue, sage green, a deep wine, and muted shades of terracotta. The best part about these colors is that ALL of them work for multiple seasons and they look good on every skin tone!
Bridesmaid Dress Trends
We are seeing polar extremes as far as wedding styles from restrained minimalism to weddings that would make Marie Antoinette jealous. So as far as your bridesmaids’ dresses go, the sky is the limit, but choose something that complements the style of the rest of your wedding. Whether the dress is simple or ornate, these days, floor-length is the way to go, but feel free to go with a dress that shows a little leg. Square necklines are having a moment and it’s easy to see why, they’re super flattering!
Trends For The Moms In Your Life
As far as mother-child photo ops go, it doesn’t get better than your wedding day. So, you're going to want to make sure mom’s look is on-point too! Right now, our favorite trend for moms is an off-the-shoulder neckline. It gives mom a little coverage without being too buttoned up. If your mom is looking for something a little more traditional, you really can’t go wrong with a long-sleeve lace bodice–they’re timeless. For the adventurous mom, one-shoulder dresses are very now and there are plenty of fun options.
Fabrics To Look For
When it comes to selecting the fabric for your bridal party’s ensemble, make sure to consider the season and the weather at your destination. Satin and chiffon are popular for the spring and summer months and crepe and velvet are still going strong for winter.

While selecting menswear for your wedding may seem like a no-brainer, there are actually a surprising amount of options to choose from. Trust us, we know! If you’re looking for something classic, you can’t go wrong with a black tux. To keep it modern, we suggest opting for one with a shawl lapel. Two-tone or patterned tuxedo jackets are becoming more and more popular and are fun for the fashion-forward groom. Velvet jackets are also a great way to add a little spice to a winter wedding look. For styling, velvet loafers and no-show socks are very on-trend, but if that’s not you, feel free to go with the classic tuxedo shoe and dress socks.
