Baby got BACK
Today’s trends no longer put the focus on just the front of the dress. You’ll be seeing everything from plunging back lines, keyhole cutouts, and glamourous criss cross designs!

These dresses allow for a completely open back, the corset style, and criss cross straps! These strappy details are a great way to add some flair to any style.
All About The Sleeves
While sleeves became the “it” trend for brides a few years ago, this look is now making its way into 2019 bridesmaid dresses, and this years designer collections are bringing us the best sleeves we’ve seen yet!
Looking for a pretty alternative to the strapless style? Consider cap sleeves. These barely there sleeves still flatter the shoulders but offer just enough coverage for those wanting to cover their arms, or for brides who want a more formal look for their bridesmaids. A consistently beautiful style for many designers, we will be seeing more cap sleeves for 2019 bridesmaids. Try cap sleeve in delicate lace for a vintage-inspired look.
If you’re looking to add extra style points to your wedding you might want to check out this puffy sleeve trend. Sleeves are getting a Renaissance vibe courtesy of billowy fabrics, volume, and exaggerated trims. The added touch of fabric around the forearm will give your girls a romantic look as they carry their bouquets, and is a fun new take on long-sleeve gowns!
Off the Shoulder
Elegant, sweet, romantic and flirtatious all at once, it’s obvious why the off-shoulder trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Whether you’re looking for gowns for your summer 2019 wedding or planning ahead for your 2020 nuptials, you might want to add the off-the-shoulder look to the list of things you simply can’t ignore. This trendy little sleeve is a great way to give your girls some arm coverage without being to covered up. Try a rich color palette to give your wedding a polished feel or pair with a flowy skirt for a relaxed ceremony.
Universally flattering and ultra-feminine, flutter sleeve gowns are popping up all over Pinterest for a reason. These loose sleeves are perfect for giving your wedding a laid back feel and your bridesmaids will definitely appreciate keeping their full range of motion, but still covering their arms; the best of both worlds really. Whether the dress is simple or embellished, a fun flutter sleeve adds a whimsical twist that will leave boho brides everywhere swooning to get their girls in these gowns!
This truly timeless design is set dominate bridal parties throughout 2019. A strapless dress is perfect for showing off just the right amount of skin, but when it comes to support, they might not be right for all your bridesmaids.

This asymmetrical detail looks amazing paired with chiffon or other flowy fabrics for a comfortable feel!
