  • Inspirations and Ideas for Styling your Bridesmaids Dresses


    Yes, you and your fiancé ARE the stars of the show, but often the entire bridal party entourage makes for the beautiful picture. In it you will find your bridesmaids, flanking the beautiful bride, YOU!  If you have started putting your wedding theme and style together, you may find these styles for bridesmaids dresses inspiring! Keep reading for great ideas for styling your bridesmaids

     

    The Traditional Bridesmaid

    Bridal Party Wedding Traditional Bridesmaids

     

    The traditional rule of thumb was to style and dress your bridesmaids the same as if to blend into the background, but that’s not the case anymore though it’s recommended they should look somewhat cohesive and within your wedding theme/style. Usually, the bridesmaid will be a sister or a friend and the attire usually involves A-line dresses. These dresses are often in the same bright and cheery colour but in different shades and tone. The necklines can either be the same or different, but it should look alike.

     

    The Infinity Bridesmaids Dress

    Wedding Bridesmaids Infinity Dress Styles

     

    Recently, the Infinity Dress was an ever-popular choice for Bridesmaid dresses that allowed the bride to choose a particular colour and have the bridesmaids wear it in different styles, based on their body type and preference. This Convertible Dress is a great investment considering the fact you can wear it again and again with the choice of mixing up necklines, sleeves and lengths too. It’s also available in a myriad of colours that makes it great for the modern bride who may not want to stick to one colour for all the bridesmaids.

     

    The Bridesmaid Dresses and Choice of Colours

    Pastel Bridesmaids Dress Theme

     

    There are many ways you can style your bridesmaids looks, but colour coordination is one way to go about it. While the traditional way would be to stick to one colour shade and identical dresses, that doesn’t mean you have to – there are more fun alternatives nowadays. Speaking of which, you can choose the very trendy “One Colour Many Shades” style, which is fabulous with any of the core colours.  Let’s not stop there, how about a pastel colour theme, where you assign one bridesmaid one pastel colour each and letting them own it – you can present the colours to them and have them pick which one they want for a very democratic process of colour choice that will ultimately make your life easier.
