Having all your bridesmaids wear the same dress has been a longstanding tradition, but it’s challenging to find a color that is loved by and suits all your girls! Here are some tips and tricks that might help you with the search for the perfect colors for bridal party dresses.

Consider the Wedding Theme

The first thing to decide when you’re choosing the bridesmaid dresses is the wedding theme. After all, you can’t wear a rustic outfit at a rooftop wedding! A rustic outfit, or your yellows and browns, are more appropriate when your theme is boho chic. Meanwhile, shades of pink and green will look splendid if your theme is soft and romantic.

However, a single color often doesn’t compliment every skin tone and complexion. One of the ways you can easily combat this problem is by giving your bridesmaids a choice to choose from various shades of the same color. For instance, if your bridal party is going to dress up in red, they can choose from crimson, scarlet, ruby red, maroon, and so on, based on what suits them the best.

The Venue and Season

The venue and the season can play a vital role when it comes to the colors of bridesmaid dresses as well. What suits a winter, snowy backdrop wouldn’t give the same look during a beach wedding. You can always look at the venue to find inspiration for your choice of color. For example, if you’re having a garden wedding, your bridesmaids will look lovely standing next to you in colors that are enhanced by the greenery of the garden, like pinks and yellows!

If you’re still not sure which colors to go for, here are some that are universally loved. A dusty rose is the perfect choice if your bridesmaids are wearing chiffon or organza dresses. It’s apt for boho chic, country style, or a romantic vibe. If you’re a fan of blues, dusty blue is also a great neutral color to choose as it’s suitable for everything from a snowy wonderland to a cool and elegant rooftop wedding. If you’re looking at a fall wedding, burgundy might be the color for you. The deep dark red will truly pop amidst the fall foliage. Lastly, if you’re ever in doubt, black is the perfect color to make a statement in as it’s unusual for a wedding but looks great on everyone.
