Popular Bridesmaid Dresses: Styles And Colors
by: Lucinda Jones
You are getting married, and could not be more excited. The hardest part may be over since you have already found the man of your dreams, but that is not to say that all of the tough wedding day decisions are behind you. Second in difficulty to finding the perfect bridal gown is the selection of attire for the bridal party. Your bridesmaids mean the world to you and you want them to look and feel as beautiful as you do on your special day. To assist you as you begin your quest for the perfect dresses, below are some of the most popular colors and styles for bridesmaid dresses today.
A chief concern of many brides is finding a dress color that will look good on all their bridesmaids. Style, on the other hand, has become less of a concern in recent years as coordinating dress styles in the same color has become a trend of increasing popularity. One way to get around the color dilemma is to choose two colors for your bridal party and intersperse them among the ladies to maximize everyone’s appeal.
When you think of the hottest colors of the season, let your mind imagine all of the colors that make you think of heat and fire. Persimmon, which is the fiery cross between orange and salmon, will look great on all of your bridesmaids whether they have fair skin or an amazing tan fresh from a day at the beach. This color is sure to brighten up any bridal party regardless of the style, cut, length or neckline of the gown.
Saffron is another color that is popular this season. Its bold hues are sure to make a statement on your big day. While the pastel and daisy yellows are beautiful shades, saffron has that little something extra that trendsetters crave. This shade will look amazing on all of your bridesmaids whether they have brunette, blonde, or red hair.
Some of the colors that have traditionally been thought of as taboo are becoming increasingly popular with the modern bride. In fact, the only rule when it comes to dressing your wedding that should be recognized is that there are no rules. Feel free to break any and all of them, but remember that the following colors are not for the faint of heart.
The days of only the bride walking down the aisle in white are a thing of the past. Actually, sometimes the bride chooses to forego this tradition herself. If you happen to be one of the trail-blazing brides opting to wear her favorite color in lieu of the traditional white, then nothing will make your daring choice stand out more quite like you against a backdrop of bridesmaids in white in your gorgeous wedding photos.
Another color often overlooked by brides is black. This color may once have been a definite no for bridesmaids, but weddings of today are featuring this more and more often. While no one is suggesting that you walk down the aisle in a black bridal gown, consider the striking contrast between your white gown and jet black bridesmaid dresses. While the men of your wedding party are already looking handsome in their black tuxedos, your bridesmaids can coordinate perfectly with them in their gorgeous little black dresses, enabling you to be the center of attention in pure white, like an angel.
As far as style goes, the “goddess” look for bridesmaids is definitely in fashion this season, as it has been for many years. This one shoulder dress with its long flowing skirt and cascade back will evoke images of Gladiators and Coliseums in the minds of all of your guests in attendance. Add a tasteful garland of small flowers to your bridesmaids’ ensembles to complete the look with grace.
Strapless is another style that never goes out of style. If your bridesmaids are able to pull off this bold neckline then consider a chiffon skirt that hits at the knees with a satin bodice and gorgeous metallic embroidery and beading. Pairing this dress with a bright an airy color such as cornflower blue, or watermelon, will ensure your bridesmaids look as fun and fancy as they feel.
If neither of those styles works just right with your bridal party, then do not forget about the v-neck short-sleeved dress in satin. Long or short, any style of skirt will look perfect with this flattering neckline. Selecting a dress with a ruched organza sash will provide all of the ladies of your bridal party with that little something extra to accentuate or create their curves.
