Our Guide to Choosing the Best Bridesmaid Dress Colour
As a bride-to-be, your wedding dress should portray your style. Bridesmaid dresses, on the other hand, should support it as well as inspire the entire look and feel of your wedding’s theme. With that in mind, choosing a colour palette that represents your taste while making everyone happy.
Those going the traditional route may want a colour scheme that is in sync with each bridesmaid and the theme of the day, but some may want to be more adventurous by opting for trendy, mismatched pieces. Either way each dress will need to have a cohesive look.
Making sure the dresses tie together seamlessly can be tricky, which is why we’re here to make your decision-making easier. We hope these tried and true tips will help you pinpoint the ideal color for your big day.
Tip #1: Experiment with Different Styles using One Color Scheme
Blushing brides who want to stay traditional may add an artistic and personal flair to their bridesmaids’ dresses by experimenting with different styles all under one color palette. This allows each bridesmaid to express themselves without straying far from your theme, allowing cohesive yet mismatched dresses to elevate the look of your bridal party.
Tip #2: Experiment with Different Colors using One Color Palette
Those who want to inject a sense of adventure in their wedding theme can do so by playing around with colour variations of a single colour palette. This allows the bridal party to experiment with styles and hues that match their skin tone, all while staying true to your chosen theme. Different shades of colour can make for an aesthetically pleasing look too, especially if it’s painted over with soft hues like powder blue, pastel pink, nude, and other feminine colours.
Tip #3: Experiment with Multiple Colors in Different Styles of Dresses
Brides who want to break the mold entirely by fully committing to the mismatched style can play around with dresses of different colors, designs, and fabrics. This means experimenting with different sequins; florals topped on solid fabrics or even chiffon.
It can be can challenge to stay cohesive when you go for this route, so be sure to pick certain elements that connect all the members of the bridal party, either through a consistent colour palette or aesthetic. You can also tie the group’s look together by using identical accessories like a rhinestone belt, hairpiece, or even the same style of flowers for the bridesmaids’ bouquets.
Tip #4: Use Samples to Examine Color, Not Just Swatches
Picking a colour for your wedding is challenging enough as it is, and it can even be more daunting when choosing one for your bridal party. There’s a lot you need to think about when doing so. You need to take into consideration certain factors, like if it complements your own gown down and the skin tone of your bridesmaids.
On that note, the best way to visualize how it will look together is by examining color on full-sized samples in daylight rather than swatches. This allows you to choose the color that will highlight your bridesmaids without clashing with your own gown or wedding theme.
