When choosing dresses that all your bridesmaids are happy with, there’s a lot to think about. Should you go long sleeve or short? Opt for floor-length gowns or knee skimming hems? Keep it simple or up the glitz and glamour? Have everyone matching or go for differing styles? Another factor to think about is the colour of those bridesmaid dresses.
Your bridesmaid dresses have the power to complement your wider wedding theme and to add a splash of colour to the bridal party while you’re all dressed in white.
Each year brings a flurry of new bridal trends, and whilst bridesmaid fashion isn’t as fast-moving, some colours have been more popular than others during 2020.
White bridesmaid dresses may seem like an odd colour choice. But with more and more brides choosing coloured wedding gowns, white bridesmaid dresses and jumpsuits are certainly becoming more popular.
A classic tone that looks fabulous on everyone, white bridesmaid dresses are a great way to add sophistication to proceedings.
Ivory, cream, blush, and champagne bridesmaid dresses are other popular hues and are perfect for those wanting to be traditional and trendy all at the same time.
Another understated tone that can make a big impact at weddings big and small is mint. Here Who What Wear explains more about the use of mint on the wedding scene this year:
“This tone has taken a bit of a backseat on the wedding circuit over the last few years, but now, mint hues—the type that’s reminiscent of candied almonds—are back in a big way for bridesmaids in 2020.
The key to making this throwback hue look modern is to look for pared-back silhouettes and avoid froth at all costs.”
We’re taking you from classic and subtle tones to the other end of the scale. Bright and bold colour choices aren’t for the faint-hearted but those wanting to go vibrant will love this year’s hot pink trend.
This vivacious pop of colour looks great on bridesmaids and can be complemented further by incorporating hot pink roses, orchids, and hydrangeas into floral arrangements at the ceremony and reception.
Hot pink is not only feminine, it’s a playful touch that adds fun and romance to your wedding day.
With winter wedding season just around the corner, it’ll come as no surprise that forest green is very much on trend this season. This dark and moody hue will add glamour to your bridesmaid attire.
Team your forest green bridesmaid dresses with dark red lips to add more edge to this stunning wedding look.
Copper is another interesting shade that’s made for autumn and winter weddings. It offers an altogether different way to add glamour to your wedding day without all the bling.
Copper bridesmaid dresses look even more show-stopping in slinky, silk designs. Silk slip bridesmaid dresses were particularly popular during spring and summer 2020.
If you’re marrying during the cooler months, however, kit your bridesmaids out with faux fur cover-ups to keep the seasonal chills at bay and increase the old Hollywood glam further.
