The bride may be the leading lady, but her bridesmaids are her supporting cast. Color plays a big role in making sure the whole look comes together and highlights the bride, but how do you pick the perfect color for your bridesmaid dresses? Just because a color is trending, doesn’t mean it’s the right color for your bridesmaids. Here are some considerations when choosing your bridesmaid dress colors.

choosing bridesmaid dress colors

1. Season

Whether it’s dark plums and metallics during the winter, springtime brights or summery pastels, they are endless color combinations to suit the time of year you’re tying the know. Seasons can also dictate what type of material and length of dress would be appropriate, no matter what color you choose.

2. Wedding Theme/Details

The theme you choose for your wedding also can help in choosing your bridesmaid dress color.  For example if you are throwing a rustic/vintage wedding, softer, more muted colors would work, where as if you are having a more modern wedding, black and white would make more sense. Your color should reflect the theme of the wedding and complement your wedding dress, whether it’s diamond white, eggshell, or blush. 

3. Bridesmaids’ Complexions

Brides, these are the VIPs of your world. Bridesmaids looking amazing will only make you look better! Make sure they aren’t going to disappear in that bright hue or feel like they need a spray tan to pull off that muted color. An easy way to let them shine is by following the ever popular mix + match trend. Whether it’s different shades in the same color or multiple colors, make sure they know you want them to look and feel great too!

We can’t wait to be stunned by your beautiful bridesmaids.
