Having mastered the choice of the perfect wedding dress, the next exciting but also challenging step is to decide on colour and style of your bridesmaids dresses. The look of your bridesmaids will support the bride’s beauty on the big day and is therefore not to be underestimated. We at A Lavish Affair have put together a list of tips and inspirational colors and styles for you to choose from for your bridesmaid’s look.
It is always a good first step to take a look at your wedding reception’s colors and theme to reflect these in the bridesmaid’s dresses. They do not have to be the exact same colors; however they should complement each other and harmonise with each other. Is your reception venue a rather formal venue or have you chosen a casual venue to enjoy your big day? Attending informal or more casual wedding venues can result in a wider range of colors and styles, whereas formal venues would usually lend themselves better to longer bridesmaid dresses in more subtle colors.
Take into consideration the bridesmaid’s shapes when choosing the style of the dresses as you want your bridesmaids to feel comfortable and beautiful so they can play their role with confidence.
The season and time of day that your wedding takes place is a crucial indication of possible colors and styles for your bridesmaid’s dresses as well. We are currently inspired by the upcoming Spring Season and will give you a selection of beautiful spring wedding ideas.
And most of all, take a look at your own dress. Your bridesmaid’s dresses should fit the vibe; they should complement your style and shades of colors but should not take away the bride’s show. In the end, you want the perfect combination of color, shape and style to make your dress and persona shine.
