How to choose your bridesmaids dresses
When it comes to choosing bridesmaids dresses, we understand that it’s not an easy decision. So we have collected some of the on-trend ways to make the decision a little easier. #mixandmatchmaids
Top tip – view the fabrics and their colour in the daylight, rather than relying on artificial lights in shops…
Same colour, same style
Probably the most popular way of styling all of your bridesmaids, is by having exactly the same dress in the same colour. After all, you can’t please everyone, so you may as well choose something that you love!
Same colour, different styles
If you’re having more than one bridesmaid, you might need to consider lots of different shapes and style preferences. So in order to keep all bridesmaids happy, have you thought about having a range of dresses in the same colour, but all different styles – e.g. some which are long, some midi dress, or some with cross backs, and some strapless.
This might even be a nice idea to have a slightly different dress style for your Maid of Honour – a special dress for a special lady!
Different colours, same colour palette
Have a look at Pantone’s 2018 hot trends this year for lots of inspiration on colour palettes and colours which work well together. For a spring wedding, pastel colours such as pale pinks and duck egg blue tie nicely together, while deep reds and blues are perfect for a winter wedding. Having the same colour palette would tie nicely into the whole theme and style of the wedding whilst giving all your bridesmaids a unique touch.
Same style, different colours
Florals and lace are both popular bridesmaid dress choices, so if you aren’t worried about each of your bridesmaids having the same colour, opt for a range of dresses which comply to the same style. The style could be long lace dresses, or a long sleeved skater dress styles.
Different colours, different styles
And probably the easiest way to keep all of your friends and bridesmaids happy is by allowing them to choose their own bridesmaid dress. Why not eh!
