After a year of cancellations, postponed weddings and the occasional 15-30 guest ceremony, to say we are all looking forward to the next wedding season is an understatement. Whether you are planning a lavish blow-out celebration or an intimate affair, you will want to have your best girls by your side, dressed in their finest of course. So without further ado, here is our roundup of the best bridesmaids trends for 2021 (they will totally work for 2022, too).

1. A riot of colour


There is no disputing that bright, bold colours are the most fun to wear! And we all deserve a bit of riotous colour in our lives, not least of all now. Be a bit daring and mix your favourite colours – your bridesmaids will love it, too.

2. It’s a nice day for a white wedding


The ivory bridesmaids trend has been gaining in popularity and there are plenty of reasons why. Not only does all white make for brilliant photographs but your girls will feel extra special AND it’s an excellent talking point for guests. Our tip when picking ivory bridesmaids dresses: opt for classic, elegant silhouettes with no frills or fuss so that the brides dress shines.

3.Mix it up


Satin is having a real moment, and since launching our rust satin styles we can’t keep them in stock! Try mixing a couple of satin dresses with crepe for a thoroughly modern look, modelled here perfectly by Grace’s best girls. Also look out for an exciting forest green satin launch coming soon…

4. Switch up the seasons


Sure, it’s traditional to wear dark colours in winter and pastels in summer, but at Rewritten we are anything but traditional! Throw the rule book out of the window and switch up the seasons, opting for Inky dark blue or deep forest green at the height of summer. Perfect if you know your colour scheme but can’t set a date yet.

Book an in-store appointment at our East London showroom for later in the year here.


Rewritten started back in 2016 when two friends (Katie and Frances), frustrated by the choice of contemporary bridesmaid dresses out there, decided to create our own. We design for us, for our mates, our sisters and for the modern day bridesmaid. We believe that no bridesmaids dress should be worn only once and that is at the heart of everything we do. Find out more About Us.

Phew, what a crazy year it’s been. With big wedding plans made nigh-on impossible due to limited guest numbers, there is a new wave of lovebirds opting to tie the knot with a very intimate, very romantic, micro-wedding. And although it may not have been the original plan, there is no reason why it can’t be just as beautiful, and most importantly, just as special. Not only does a smaller wedding allow you to cherish the time with your nearest and dearest, but it really does focus on what you are all ultimately there for – each other.

Here are our top tips on how to throw the perfect micro-wedding…


1. Don’t let numbers get in the way of a smashing colour line-up


There is no reason why a small wedding should mean a less impactful wedding. Some of our favourite bridesmaids colour combo’s have appeared recently and we would encourage you to go bold with your choices – it’s your wedding day after all! Grace and her bridesmaids certainly didn’t disappoint with their inspirational colour palette of rust satin, chianti, forest and blackcurrant crepe.

2. Simplicity is key


Why not opt for a chic, elegant and understated bridal look that is a little easier on the purse-strings? Enter, our Ivory collection. Or just say hell to the rule book and wear a coloured wedding dress!

3. It’s all about the food and wine 


If you are planning a smaller wedding then you can make much more of a big deal over the food and wine, including more courses and spending longer at the wedding breakfast. Maybe it’s time you took the opportunity to book that fabulous tasting menu for you and your guests, of course, paired with matching wines.





4. Go BIG on the flowers


Just because there are fewer guests than originally planned, it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your vision of how the day was going to look. Floral arches, big bouquets and added touches go along way to making the day.

5. Get his and hers masks


Poke a bit of fun at COVID and get some shots wearing his and hers masks, you can look back and remember the difficult time that you survived through together.

7. Include your loved-ones


Having recently attended a micro-wedding that was live streamed via Facebook to 100 absent guests, Rewritten can vouch for the success of this personally. Not only did it mean that everyone felt super involved in such an awesome day, but it also meant that the bride and groom had a video of their ceremony to watch the following day. Oh and it’s great fun to ask your guests to dress up at home and send you pictures of them watching.

With the current situation and social distancing seeming to be going nowhere anytime soon, throwing a hen party in the normal way is basically impossible, which totally sucks. We have teamed up with our pals over at uber cool hen planning service CLUCK to explain that fun can still be had- whether having a full on virtual hen party or if you are just planning something to mark what would have been the special day (we like to call it it the un-hen party!) Over to the team at CLUCK….


Hey there! We’re CLUCK, an alternative hen party planning company run by three best pals. Normally we spend our days creating & organising bespoke hen party packages and experiences for cool, modern women….but that’s been a bit tricky of late. You don’t need us to tell you that the last month has been an utter s**t-show, no more than for brides that have had to reschedule their 2020 hen parties & weddings.


For that reason we’ve put together some tips on holding a virtual hen party for the bride-to-be, on what would have been her hen party date! It’s a great way to connect in lockdown, have some fun together ahead of the “real” hen party later down the line, and most importantly, put a much needed smile on the face of the bride-to-be.


Here’s CLUCK’s expert tips on how to hold the virtual (un) hen party from heaven….




Yes we are in the midst of a global pandemic….but it’s 2020 and that means we can all still create, make and learn together virtually, whilst having a laugh AND supporting small businesses during a testing time! Here are a few of our faves…


MAKE YOUR OWN FLOWER CROWNS OR BOUQUETS – channel your inner Frida Kahlo with a floral crown workshop, or create a gorgeous hand tied bouquet to appreciate and enjoy during lockdown. Hosted by the lovely Amy, a small independent planner, stylist and florist who will hand deliver your kits the day of the party (within M25), and will ensure you have a lot of fun whilst learning on your Zoom workshop. Then you can either have a group  shot in your gorgeous new crowns, or you can pop your bouquet in a vase and admired!


AT-HOME SCENTED CANDLE WORKSHOP – could there be a better skill to learn during lockdown than how to make a scented candle?! During this online class you will join one of our expert candle makers, as a team you will be guided through our candle making process. Prior to your workshop you will receive a candle kit containing all the core materials and equipment you’ll need to make your scented soy wax candle. You will also be able to choose your own botanical oil scent profile and custom candle label. Via Zoom, they’ll share hints and tips on creating candles from the comfort and safety of your home.



VOGA – we’ve all seen the plethora of online yoga classes but this isn’t yoga….this is VOGA. Fusing wellbeing with party vibes, VOGA is the perfect at-home hen experience. Set to an iconic soundtrack of 80s diva classics, it combines the movement of yoga with the expressive moves of a dance class. The idea is to dress to express, so don your most fabulous gear and we’ll see you in the living room.



LIFE DRAWING– yep that’s right…see a naked hunk in all his glory AND learn how to draw without leaving your living room. Arm yourselves with a drawing pad and (plenty of) prosecco, and prepare to unleash your hen’s inner artist. Through a series of fun exercises & effective tips from a professional artist you’ll learn a new skill centred around observing – and recreating – the human body in all its beauty (aubergine emoji).



THEMED DANCE CLASS – what better way to let loose and have a much needed laugh than some living room choreography with your pals?! Whether it’s Beyonce, Dirty Dancing, Disney or 90’s Pop, the list of themes is endless (as is the fun to be had).

Ahead of the virtual party, why not send a little care package so the bride is stocked up with treats for the event. You can either send a surprise supermarket shop, or if you want something a little more “aesthetically pleasing” how about one of these…


ISOBEL BAKES CAKE POSTAL SERVICE– Isobel is offering a “Cake Postal Service” so you can send gorgeously presented cakes with a personalised card. Options include Biscoff brownie & salted caramel, banana & caramel cake, and sticky toffee pudding cake. And no, we won’t judge if you order one for yourself whilst you’re at it.



JIMMY’S SELF ISOLATON HAMPERS – Jimmy & his team have curated “isolation hampers” to suit all lockdown treat needs. Their “Night-In (Again)” hamper features mixed charcuterie, sourdough baguette, homemade pickles, olive oil and balsamic, homemade chutney, rosemary and garlic stuffed Camembert and the all important bottle of wine.



CUTTER & SQUIDGE’S “AFTERNOON TEA AT HOME”  – if your bride-to-be is a sophisticated lady, Cutter & Squidge are offering a boxed up version of their favourite afternoon tea treats delivered to your door. The box includes brownies, mini dreamcakes, scones, clotted cream, fruity jam & a tin of fine loose leaf tea.



BETROVAL BOX  – our pals at Team Hen have curated a beautiful box for brides-to-be, brimming with at least 7 must-have wedding products. Some will help plan and prepare for the big day, while others are designed to pamper and delight. They can be bought as a subscription or one-off purchase, plus delivery is free and get 15% off with code SPRING2020.






There’s plenty of options that still work virtually….why not do a game of bingo or pub quiz themed around the bride, and of course Mr & Mrs will go down a treat, and is a great way to get the groom involved. And if he’s game, for ultimate LOLS you could have him do a “surprise” (semi) strip tease for the bride.





Just because you’re not physically together, doesn’t mean you can’t go all out with a dress code. All out glam with full make-up/hair is a nice way to make the event feel special (and it’s good for the soul to spend a few hours out of pyjama’s). Alternatively a fancy dress theme suited to the bride is also a great idea for guaranteed LOLS.

Make sure the whole squad get involved with these lovely hen party goody bags from Team Hen that can be sent to each guests house. Frosted zip pouches contains everything you need for your virtual hen party. And of course, they have quite a selection of headbands so even a virtual hen party is Instagram-worthy.

The Boho Bride. Well aren’t you just a laidback little bundle of fun? Brightly coloured, mix and match bridesmaids outfits will look just perfect at your festival themed bohemian wedding.

Look to the floaty sleeves of the Mykonos and Florence dresses in colours like Coral, Bluebell, Marine and Heather.

The Traditionalist. Dreaming of that beautiful country house wedding with the white flowing dress and veil since you were a little girl? What could be more fitting for your day than pale oyster pink, blush rose, soft grey or minty marine green dresses. The high neck Vienna and classic Ibiza will strike the balance between demure and contemporary and will look just bloody fabulous on that marquee dancefloor.

The Cosmopolitan City Bride. Oh hey there city slicker. More bothered by the quality of the wine than the flowers, we have got you covered with our uber cool Soho jumpsuit, high neck Vienna and square neck Berlin dress in Chianti (red wine friendly HELLO) or Concrete.

The Fairytale Bride. The event of the century, your grand English cathedral or French chateau wedding is going to be talked about for years to come. Look to our Seville dress with sweeping train and dramatic shoulder ties or our slinky Brooklyn dress with low back and spaghetti straps in rich jewel tones such as Blackcurrant, Ink, Chianti or Forest.

The biggest and boldest of the bridesmaids trends, mismatched is here to stay. Done right it makes for the coolest of looks but it can be a tricky one to nail. From clashing prints to tonal gradation and contrasting textures, we bring to you the cardinal rules of mixing and matching.


1. One style DOESN’T suit all 

Long gone are the days when free thinking adult women are expected to dress in the same outfit, now it is entirely possible to let your bridesmaids show off their own sense of style and identity whilst achieving a uniform look. Opt for different styles in the same colour for a modern take on the traditional bridal party. Oh and your bridesmaids will love you for it, we promise.

2. Don’t be afraid to be BOLD

We specially designed all of our colours to be worn together. Bright Coral with red-wine friendly Chianti and pale Oyster pink – why the hell not? Turquoise marine green with deep forest and brilliant bluebell? Abso-bloody-lutely. Embrace the colour pop and go BOLD.

3. Play with TEXTURE

The subtle sheen of a satin when teamed with a matt crepe and a pretty printed chiffon dress will win serious style points and looks glorious in photographs – different fabrics will capture a kaleidoscope of colours in sunlight.

4. Throw in a TROUSER

Call us biased but we LOVE a strong trouser leg and think every bridal party should feature at least one jumpsuit. Look for a flowing palazzo silhouette that will blend seamlessly with any dress or skirt.

Long gone are the days when the invitation to be your best friend’s bridesmaid came with a sense of impending doom at the monstrosity of a non-flattering dress you might have been expected to wear. The modern day bridesmaid has so many more choices and will no longer have to down a few pre-ceremony proseccos just to brave the congregation. So, what exactly is the coolest way to do bridesmaids dressing, I hear you ask? Read on, for having dressed thousands of beautiful bridesmaids, we are the experts…

Do you really believe that all of your adult bridesmaids (women who have spent the last few decades of their lives forming their individual sense of identity and style) are going to even entertain the thought of wearing a matching dress with five other women? And a dress that they (probably) didn’t choose? No, they aren’t. The answer? Mix and match your bridesmaids styles and let your best girls choose which silhouette and colour is going to make them feel most awesome. Not only will this make for way more exciting wedding photos, but your bridesmaids will actually like you, no sorry, love you for it.

Yes – we know we said the coolest way to wear bridesmaids dresses but we happen to be massive fans of a bridesmaid jumpsuit. Does it take longer to go to the toilet in? Yes. Is it worth the extra undressing time? Absolutely. Will your best girl feel like a proper rock-star wearing one on your big day? 100%.

Like a beautifully sweet sounding harmony, there is nothing more satisfying than a group of dresses in tonal hues of the same colour. Whether a blend of dusky grey, pale pink and antique rose or rich forest green and minty marine we couldn’t sing the praises for tonal dressing more enthusiastically.

Not only is a bridesmaids dress or jumpsuit you can imagine wearing again clearly a winner already, but it’s way more sustainable too (no-one likes throwaway attire.) Look for great quality, contemporary pieces that could be transformed by shortening into a great midi-length party dress post-wedding.You will probably have put a heel through the bottom of the dress anyway.

Welcome to Hackney Wick – home to the Rewritten flagship store and packed with some of the most excellent bars, restaurants and cafes that London has to offer. We are well aware of how difficult it can be to get all of your bridesmaids in one place, so whether you are looking for the perfect pre-appointment brunch spot, post-appointment beer and pizza or a light lunch bite – we have the lowdown on where to go in the area.




Located next to Hackney Wick station Crate Brewery serves the most delicious stone-baked pizzas alongside a fantastic beer selection (and wine too if beer isn’t your thing) everyday from 12pm. In summer there is no greater spot than on one of their benches by the River Lea or if you are feeling adventurous jump aboard the Alfred Le Roy cocktail boat for espresso martini’s and charcuterie. Try the truffle and sage pizza, trust us, it is epic.




A stones throw from the Rewritten showroom, Barge East is an 114 year old Dutch barge serving locally sourced small plate dishes in the warm and cosy inside dining space (there is a log fire, how cute is that) or overlooking the Olympic village from the outdoor deck. The barge is also draped in fairy lights come evening so it looks pretty damn magical on a winters evening. Open for brunch on Saturdays and dinner and drinks throughout the week.




This canal-side bar and kitchen has an excellent cocktail list and flies the flag for local artists with a small in-house arts space and revolving roster of guest DJs. Located close to Hackney Wick, team Rewritten are big fans of Number 90, we even celebrated Ana’s (our Head of CS) 30th birthday there. It was raucous. Serving food daily between 12pm and 9.30pm.




Stour Space Café & Bar is located opposite the Rewritten showroom and has the loveliest indoor cafe and outdoor terrace overlooking the River Lea canal, opposite the Olympic Stadium. The brunch is excellent (try the bacon sarnie) and they do great coffee, wine, beer and cocktails. A non-profit, socially minded organisation, Stour Space is also a revolving exhibition space with all cafe and bar profits reinvested into the running of the venue.





Next door to Crate Brewery, the tank bar at Howling Hops is exceptionally cool – rows of beer tanks are displayed behind the bar and you can dine out on whatever restaurant pop-up is in residence (currently excellent Colombian food – the gluten-free Arepas are to die for) while sitting on long benches. Known to be a bit of a party spot, this late-night venue gets pretty wild later at night with guest DJs and even some table top dancing. They also serve wine and spirits for those non beer drinkers out there.




A ten minute walk from Rewritten, London’s famous Breakfast Club has multiple locations but our favourite has to be the canal-side Hackney eatery. Forming part of the innovative Here East campus (there are oodles of restaurants and bars here including a great Vegan place called Mother so check them out), the Breakfast Club is famous for its breakfast burritos, salted margaritas and bold decor. Call us crazy but we think it is entirely appropriate to eat breakfast at any time of the day, why not do so while sitting on the Hackney Riviera?




This award-winning sustainable seafood restaurant by super talented chef Tom Brown serves up simple but sophisticated sharing plates that change daily. An open kitchen, marble-topped bar and Michelin star quality food make Cornerstone a must for all fancy food lovers and would be a great place for a slap up meal post appointment.


We have literally just scratched the surface of how much this exciting and eclectic borough has to offer but hope we have given you a taste for more. Now what are you waiting for? Book an appointment to come and see us!! Quite frankly, it would be rude not to.
