Bridesmaids dresses are a pretty important aspect of a wedding. Your bridesmaids will be standing beside you throughout the ceremony and their apparel will project your wedding style. From the colors of their bridesmaid dresses to their style of the dress, your vision can shine through their dresses.
When it comes to bridesmaid dresses, nothing is more important than the color.
Top 5 Bridesmaid Dress Colors for 2016
Finding bridesmaids dresses though, is a challenging aspect of your wedding. With multiple ladies who have different body types, skin tones and preferences, keeping your vision and their wishes cohesive can seem like a nightmare.
Mix and Match
Brides love to mix and match colors and styles for their bridesmaids. You can mix and match in a couple different ways:
- same dress style in different colors
- different colors and styles for everyone
Mixing and matching different dress styles but keeping them all in the same color is a great choice for brides whose bridesmaids have very different body types. This approach keeps bridesmaids very happy as they get more of a say in what style of dress will make them feel comfortable and will accent their body type.
Mixing and matching different dress colors in the same style of dress is a great choice for brides whose bridesmaids have different skin tones and heights. Having the same style of dress keeps your vision for the wedding more united. With a one style of dress, there are less details for people to analyze during the wedding, keeping more eyes on you and your groom.
Most Popular Style of Dress
This year the trend has been to keep bridesmaid dresses long and airy. Long chiffon and flowy styles are most popular and primarily what is designed across the board.
The Impact of Florals
It's not a wedding without flowers, and as most bridesmaids will be carrying beautiful bouquets down the aisle, it's important to pair your florals with your dresses. The trend this year has been soft blush, peach and ivory florals paired with soft greens like peonies, ranunculus, and garden roses.
Vintage & Romance
For a more vintage or romantic style, pair delicate florals with blush, champagne, and sequin bridesmaid dresses.
Drama & Elegance
If you are looking to make more of a statement, pair your florals with darker navy and grey tones.
