You want to keep your bridesmaids happy, so choosing the right bridesmaid dresses for them is super important! Keep your best girls happy with their bridesmaid dresses.
1. Considering the color. Don’t expect everyone to cast a bronze glow. “Blush pink bridesmaid dress and champagne bridesmaid dress are hot bridesmaid dress colors right now, but they don’t suit every skin tone. They can wash some people out,” says Weppner. If you’ve got a range of fair, olive, and dark skin tones, make sure the dress color flatters all. (Keep hair color in mind, too, if you’re choosing something unique that could clash with a redhead, for example.) You can work in a two-color palette, says Weppner, to please everyone (think pink and a darker coral).
2. Take a look at your own dress. Think about your gown and overall wedding style. Is it classic, modern, or maybe vintage? Your bridesmaids’ dresses should fit the vibe. If you’re wearing a flowy, bohemian lace wedding dress, your maids might look out of place in formal taffeta bridesmaid dresses.
