Wondering what the biggest bridesmaid trend of the year is? In short, the answer is whatever you want.

These days, bridesmaid aren't just matching dresses in the same colour. This year is all about the mix and match approach, or as we call it, rainbow bridesmaid season.

Just like the way we encourage our Nola girls to dress, this trend allows your bridesmaids to pick dresses for their individual personality, skin tone, hair colour and overall style preferences. More often than not, bridesmaids will be grateful to have their opinions and voices heard, and this trend gives you the opportunity to give your girls the choice of how they look and feel on your big day.

By allowing your girls to pick whatever dress they want, you’re also doing your bit to increase the chances of your bridesmaid’s wearing their dresses again in the future – a long term and more responsible approach to fashion that we love to see here at Nola.

Bridesmaids are mixing it up, and we’re here for it.

Whether it’s choosing different silhouettes, hem lines, fabrics or colours, the rainbow trend will allow you to create a truly unique and vibrant ensemble of dresses.

Nola Tips for the rainbow trend:

  • This is a pretty new trend, and may be tricky for you or your bridesmaids to visualise at first. Make a moodboard to help guide your girls!
  • If you’re looking for a way to tie all the dresses together in some way, why not ask your girls to wear matching hair accessories or shoes to add a touch of continuity.
  • Consider your bridesmaid flowers with this trend. If you’ve got a rainbow dress code, it may be worth adding a rainbow bouquet to help bring everything together
