There's a new bridesmaid dress trend for the maid of honour

Well, this is different.

Traditionally, bridesmaids dress the same but that could all be set to change as there's a new trend on the horizon.


The maid of honour is usually top dog and as the chief bridesmaid, she tends to take on the main organisational duties with the other bridesmaids helping out.

Usually, in a bridal party, you can't tell the difference between bridesmaids and the maid of honour but some brides have decided to mix it up a little bit.


Caitlin Pope is a stylist and co-founder of The Bridesmaid Studio, a luxury bridesmaid dress store in Melbourne Australia.

In conversation with Who What Wear recently, she explained that some brides are now dressing their bridesmaids and maid of honour in completely different looks.

Caitlin says that a common theme is to choose a statement dress for the maid of honour, think sequins, print etc and then decide on dresses in similar colours for the other bridesmaids.


Caitlyn said:

"Often people have chosen a sequin or a printed dress for the maid of honour and then a complimentary tone such as blush or burgundy for the rest of the bridesmaids. It works really nicely".

It's also become more popular to introduce a number of colours for the bridesmaid dresses rather than having everyone dress in the same shade.


It isn't something we've noticed a huge amount of in Ireland yet but if you have a look on Pinterest and Instagram, it's clear this trend is getting bigger and bigger.
