Posted • December 19 • Dress for a Night • Designer Dress Hire

Is your wedding coming up and amongst all the planning, you need to figure out what dresses your bridesmaids will be wearing? Deciding on a bridesmaid dress can be difficult, as you need to take into consideration different styles, colours, and the opinions of the bridesmaids themselves. To make your planning less stressful, this guide will show you our favourite and most popular bridesmaid dresses that you cannot go wrong with.

Bridesmaid Dresses in Different Styles

Bridesmaid Dress colours

It is your wedding, you have every say in the colour scheme and what you would like your bridesmaid dresses to wear. There is no right or wrong in choosing a colour, as long as everyone is happy. We recommend choosing colours that complement most skin tones for your bridesmaids, such as sage, blues, teals, or charcoals and blacks.

How to Choose a Bridesmaid Dress Colour

There are a few things to consider before you determine your bridesmaid dress colour. These things include, the colour of your bridal gown, the season of when the wedding takes place, skin tones, your venue and decoration colour scheme. It is best to choose a colour that complements all the elements above to ensure a seamless visual representation.

Are Black Bridesmaid Dresses Appropriate?

There is no rule on what colours should and should not be worn to a wedding. It is traditional that no one but the bride wears white, but there are no restrictions on other colours. Wearing black to a wedding may have been frowned upon, but in modern times it has become perfectly normal. Having your bridesmaids wear black dresses will create a beautiful contrast with your bridal gown - it is all about your vision and what you would like your colour scheme to be.

Do Bridesmaid Dresses have to Match?

No, your bridesmaids do not have to wear the exact same style of dress. Bridesmaid dresses in different styles is very common, as long as they have the same colour scheme or palette to create a seamless look.
