While many classic dress styles are stunning when worn by bridesmaids, modern bridesmaid dress styles continue to emerge. It’s easy to stick to what is established but it could also mean you’re missing out on a new style of bridesmaid dress that’s utterly perfect. This post features our top picks for modern dresses so you know what’s out there. 

Modern trends in bridesmaid dresses

Every year there are new fashion trends that bleed into the world of bridesmaid dresses and outfits for wedding guests. In 2024, some of the prominent trends include: 

  • Mismatched bridesmaid dresses – bridal parties who have agreed to wear different dress style with potential for slight variations in colour tones. 
  • More colour – gone are the days of neutrals being the go-to option for bridesmaids. Nowadays, groups are embracing the freedom to choose vibrant and bold colour combinations. Recent examples at the time of writing include lilac bridesmaid dresses and green bridesmaid dresses 
  • Texture and accessories – building on the increased individuality in modern bridesmaid styles, many modern looks include highly textured fabrics and textural features. Of course, there’s also beauty in simplicity for those who wanted to accessorise in more subtle ways. 


Our picks for modern bridesmaid dress styles

There are so many kinds of bridesmaid dresses to choose from and the range of options only promises to increase over time. This isn’t even including colour combinations, accessories, and bridesmaid dress alterations. Nevertheless, there are a few modern dress styles that have stood out from the crowd. 


The Daphne dress is almost a take on a classic fairytale princess look. Its mid-calf pleated skirt is held by a wrap-around, above which is a gorgeous ruched bust. The neckline is soft and square, further adding to the playfulness of this style. The fabric is intentionally more generous in certain areas to help accentuate an hourglass figure. It’s a dress that is cute as it is practical, our Daphne Satin V Neck also features a full button-down front with a central split.

The Elle is designed to be comfortable and flattering. Strapless bras are perfect for this bridesmaid dress as the fabric hugs the under the armpits. It features a stand-out back complete with frill detailing that extends along the entire edge of the sleeve. This finishes in a tie-drawstring at the neckline that can be used to secure the dress to your figure. Although full-length, the Elle is playful and flirty thanks to its buttoning detail and a side slit.

Enya dresses are minimalist but achieve stunning results if you’re aiming for a chic look. The wide straps follow down to a slim fitting dress that accentuates slight figures. The straps are fully adjustable so you can make the length work for you. Plus, the bias cut and scoop neck combination allow the Enya dress to exude fun and elegance in equal measure. The style can work wonderfully with blush bridesmaid dresses and other uplifting colours.
