Once you’ve decided on a colour scheme for your wedding, it’s time to start thinking about what your bridesmaids (or bridesmen) will wear! The look and style of your bridal party play a major part in tying together the overall theme of your wedding day.
Finding the perfect look for your bride tribe can be a tricky task — one that usually requires lots of discussion and endless inspo pics being shared in the group chat. If you’re not sure where to start, we’ve rounded up the most popular bridesmaid dress colours and styles to inspire your selection.
Whether you’re planning to mix things up with mismatched bridal party looks or going for a more cohesive vibe, you’ll want to make sure the colour and style of the bridesmaid dresses you pick are flattering, comfortable, and match your overall colour theme. If you’re yet to finalise a colour scheme for your wedding, check out this article for trending Bridal Accessories palettes we’re loving.
What are the most popular bridesmaid dress colours at the moment?
According to the lovely team at Bridley, soft champagnes and earthy tones are having a moment — and we are here for it.
“We’re seeing more brides and bridesmaids interested in soft champagne tones and also earthier mauve and rust tones. That being said, navy is also a timeless colour that we are seeing more frequently for mother-of-the-bride looks.”
If you’re not overly keen on the idea of black bridesmaid dresses, Bridley suggest darker-toned dresses such as navy or dark mauve, as they are flattering tones for various skin tones and figures. “The fabrication of bridesmaid dresses can also make a big impact and help by broadening the colours that can be selected. For example, waterfall/knife pleating is flattering on many silhouettes — the pleating elongates the figure, and the relaxed fit is comfy and modest, so your bridesmaids are likely to feel more comfortable.”
Rust, mauve, copper, mustard, taupe, and terracotta are all gorgeous earthy tones for bridesmaids’ dresses, evoking a rich warmth that looks absolutely stunning in photos. From rustic rural soirees to luxe bohemian weddings, the earthy colour palette suits an array of themes and is a great choice if you’re planning to tie the knot in autumn.
Perfect for spring weddings and whimsical garden gatherings, green has fast become a popular bridesmaid dress colour, and it’s here to stay. Sage, forest and emerald green have become particularly popular in recent years, lending themselves perfectly to fresh colour palettes with pops of white contrasting the green tones beautifully.
Another timeless bridesmaid dress colour, blush pink is a dreamy, soft shade perfect for romantic garden weddings in the warmer months. We love the subtlety and femininity of this shade, which looks particularly stunning in satin. And because blush is one of the most popular bridesmaid dress colours of all time, it’ll be easy to find different styles in the same shade to suit all of your bridal party members!
Similar to blush but with a fresher take, soft peach is a versatile bridesmaid dress colour that pairs beautifully with romantic pastel blooms. A beautiful colour for spring or summer weddings, soft peach is a timeless but fun wedding colour and works well in winery, garden and beach settings.
White & Ivory
Once a controversial pick for bridesmaids’ dresses, white and ivory shades are becoming increasingly popular with couples looking to steer away from tradition with a crisp, all-white wedding colour palette. When done right, white bridesmaid dresses will actually complement your dress while looking absolutely breathtaking in photographs. The white and ivory colour palette is also incredibly versatile and will suit pretty much any wedding theme!
For a timeless and chic wedding look, we love black bridesmaids’ dresses. This easy-to-wear shade is incredibly flattering and looks great on everyone, so your bridesmaids are guaranteed to feel comfortable and confident on the day. We’ve seen this bridesmaid dress colour choice becoming super popular for contemporary, inner-city weddings
