In continuing with our 2013 trend report predictions, we have the bridesmaid. 2013 is going to be jam-packed with standout bridesmaid looks. They are going to be a tad fancier, a wee bit bolder and overall simply fabulous. We are confident that mix n' matching is still going to be quite popular along with allowing your bridesmaid to pick out her own gown. Pastels will still be big, like the sweet and romantic gowns above from Donna Morgan. Our prediction for 2013 bridesmaids is that they are going to be utterly fabulous.
Flapper Style Dresses
Great Gatsby will be coming out in theaters this Christmas, but we will see the roaring 20's fashions way before the film's release. Especially in weddings! We predict to see brides and bridesmaids in updated versions of the iconic flapper dresses like the little number above from French Connection. We look forward to seeing lots of tassels and flapper girl dresses this wedding season.
Fancy Bridesmaid Dresses-
We predict to see more formal looks this season on bridesmaids. Still super stylish, but a little bit more elegant. We plan on seeing lots of sequins and dresses adorned with embellishments. The bridesmaids above are a perfect example of the sparkly elegant numbers we plan on seeing. Beautifully captured by Jemma Keech.
Bold Prints and Lace Bridesmaid Dresses-
We predict that this wedding season we going to see a ton of bold patterns and pretty textures on all the bridesmaids . We cannot wait to see bridesmaids in bold and beautiful prints like the dresses above from Joesph and Chelsea's wedding photographed by Ryan Ray.
Plan on seeing a lot of lace this season, in both wedding decor and the the main attraction. Lace will be spotted on the bride and the bridesmaids. A great example is the super cute crochet lace dress below from Dessy, which by the way comes in an array of colors that will match any palette.

With all the main stream designers showcasing stripes this 2013 season, it will be incredibly easy to throw a few stripes on your bridesmaids. Thick or skinny, horizontal or vertical and of course the beloved chevron. Your bridesmaid would love this new take on the bridesmaid dress. Look for striped dresses featuring the 2013 Pantone color of the year, emerald green, and striped patterns made from material variations - think sparkles, sequins and ruffles of chiffon.

Shimmery Gold Bridesmaid Dresses-

The metallic hue looks utterly fabulous on everyone. Well ... at least we think it does. There are so many shimmering gold dresses out there this season, we can already see your girls lined up sparkling in the sunshine.
