True Bride M7217. Tea Length

Gone are the flowing bridesmaid gowns of 2018, introducing the more practical tea length dress.

Designers have certainly not compensated on style or beauty when focussing on this trend! Instead they’ve indulged in lace trimmings, satin bows, and delicate tulle skirts. Heavenly!

One shoulder bridesmaid dress10. One Shoulder

A timeless design, the one shoulder dress is set to dominate bridal parties in 2019.

Nostalgia Rose, True Bride Kiki dress11. Nostalgia Rose [2019’s Colour Of Choice]

Nostalgia rose slowly made its way onto the wedding scene in 2018, but has now secured its place as our colour of choice for 2019.

Essentially, this tone sees dusky pink lose its brown undertones and adopt lilac and light berry shades instead. And the results are beautiful!
