This TH&TH bridesmaid gown ticks all boxes for understated glamour – part of a trend for more pared back and contemporary bridesmaid style

Bridesmaid glamour is guaranteed with these lovely gown choices, offering the perfect way for your crew to shine on the day

Bridesmaid style is moving on, with a distinct shift towards sleeker and more understated styles with contemporary cut. This is good news for brides and their crew, helping to avoid the potential arguments that can break out when a style doesn’t flatter or fit one of your bridesmaids. The other good news is the extended colour choice – traditional ‘feminine’ pinks and blushes are being diluted with a whole host of other options, from rich reds and blues to on-trend greens. And if you are considering a monochrome bridal look, ivories and creams are also firmly in the mix. Here are eight bridesmaid gowns to try.

1. Pronovias – Sea shades

Pronovias’ halterneck gown is in a flattering and on trend soft green

We’re huge fans of the Pronovias Fiesta collection for offering a wide choice of colours and styles to flatter bridesmaids (and it also offers a full range of sizes). The Jaira gown is a lovely choice for a destination wedding. In a two-tone marine green, it has a halter neck and floaty flared skirt.

2. Maids to Measure – Red glamour
