Hudson Valley Wedding – 5 of The Hottest Bridesmaids Trends of 2014

Being asked to be a bridesmaid is almost as exciting as being the bride. It is such an honor for the person and you want to make sure your bridesmaids look as fabulous as you do on the big day. Picking bridesmaid dresses isn’t an easy feat! And to help you have a trendy Hudson Valley wedding this year, we compiled a list of the five hottest bridesmaid trends of the year.

1. One-Shoulder Dresses

One-shoulder dresses are a popular choice at the moment. This is a chic look that suits different body types very well. It is also an elegant look that works well for both short and long dresses.

When it comes to color, one-shoulder dresses look the best as a single color dress. At the moment, black and purple one-shoulder dresses would be an especially trendy choice for bridesmaid dresses.

2. Bold Floral Prints

Floral trends are among the hottest wedding trends in 2014. And one great way to incorporate floral design into your wedding is by selecting floral bridesmaid dresses. Additionally, you want to go for amazingly bold and big prints. This creates a feminine look for your bridesmaids and adds a lot of elegance for the look.


Remember that if you go with a colorful floral print, you might want to keep the bridesmaids bouquets simple. A single color bouquet will guarantee the look isn’t too colorful and messy.

3. Mixed Patterns And Colors

One of the best bridesmaid trends of 2014 is the popularity to mix and match different patterns and colors. This makes picking just the right dress for each woman a lot easier. No more worrying about different body types and color preferences.

The best way to utilize this trend is by noticing the following rules. First, if you want to get different dresses for each bridesmaid, it is best to agree on a color and the length. If you mix different lengths the look might be a bit too muddled.


Second, if you want to pick the same dress you can add a bit more flair by selecting different hues with the color. For instance, you can have the same dress and let your bridesmaid pick the different shades of the same color.

4. Subtle Shimmer

Metallic shine is another big trend for this year. If you want to keep your bridesmaid look elegant and dramatic, then a subtle shimmer in the dress is the perfect option. You can even incorporate the shimmer with embroidery along the dress. This is an astonishingly chic look right now.


When it comes to color, different metallic tones of grey and gold are trendy right now. Gold especially is an elegant option for bridesmaids. You could also go with a shimmering black.  

5. Brightness With Accessories

Although single color dresses are trendy right now, you can play a bit with the colors with the accessories. You can even go with a black bridesmaid dress and add brightness with bold shoes. Pink and lime green work extraordinarily well in accessories in 2014 and can be a playful addition for a more toned-down dress.
