Who says you can’t have a “best woman” or a “bridesman?” “We’re seeing more brides including males in their bridal party and grooms adding a few ladies to their group as well,” says Khalil. Whether your bridal party includes both sexes or not, many brides are offering their attendants more flexibility with attire. Rather than have each woman in the exact same style, bridesmaids are selecting their own dresses to match a swatch of fabric picked by the bride, says celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss. “Mixing long and short dresses is also very popular right now,” she says. No matter the style, expect to see a lot of blush, cobalt, and marsala (the Pantone color of the year) gowns, says Khalil. As for the men? Navy suits, hand-tied bow ties, and fabric floral boutonnieres are all on trend for 2015, says Weiss.
