Even though the bride’s dress is the most important, every bridesmaid deserves a special dress that will flatter their skin tone, figure, and personality. This year, bridesmaids dresses are all about bright, rich colors with traditional silhouettes. Each of the year’s top colors will work into a bride’s color scheme perfectly and can complement the bride and contribute to the overall energy and vibe of the wedding.
Color 1: Blue
Blue is such a great color because its shades range from light, Tiffany blue to deep royal and navy. They can be whimsical and romantic, working well with more casual and relaxed ceremonies or be highly formal, traditional, and classy, supporting the overall of a more formal, serious ceremony. Blue is also a great color to use in your wedding if you want the maids to pick out dresses on their own and be unmatching. Each girl is almost guaranteed to find her perfect, flattering shade and all the colors will still coordinate together. Designers that showed blue bridesmaids dresses: Jenny Yoo, Jim Hjelm Occasions, and Amsale.
Color 2: Pink
Pink lends itself easily to more girly brides that are hoping their wedding will be nothing less than romantic and pretty. It is called “pretty in pink” for a reason, right? Dresses are available in so many shades of pink, each conveying a certain level of romance. For example, ballet and baby pinks are more ethereal, darling, and undeniably pretty. The deeper and darker the pink, the more they portray romance, passion, and love. Designers that showed pink bridesmaids dresses: Wtoo Maids, Bari Jay, Alvina Valenta, and Monique Lhuillier.
As mention in an earlier post, Emerald Green has been deemed the Pantone Color of the Year. The popularity of the color green has skyrocketed this year. Mint hues have a huge presence in Spring and Summer collections and are perfect for weddings that are lighthearted, casual, and refreshing. Emerald translates well into all seasons and makes for a really universal shade of green because it can be used in casual or formal weddings. Also, the color is generally flattering on all skin tones. Designers that showed green bridesmaid dresses: Jenny Yoo, Jordan Fashions, and Ann Taylor
Color 4: Gray/ Black
Grays and Blacks are ideal for brides that want to keep their wedding color scheme simple and elegant. By choosing neutral dresses, the accent colors in the wedding will truly stand out, whether they are in the bouquets or decorations. Also, these colors are universally flattering and will leave your maids feeling confident and secure about their appearance on your wedding day. After all, they will be in several photos too! It is also very easy to find black and neutral dresses, making this one less stress on you while planning your wedding. Designers that showed black bridesmaids dresses: Alfred Angelo, Love by Enzoani, and Belsoie.
Whatever color you decide for your bridesmaids dresses will be perfect for you and will express your taste and style as a person and a bride. The girls wearing the dresses will be thankful that you invited them to be a large part of your special day and will adore whatever dress you pick out for them.
