As a bride, you want your girls looking just a stunning as you want to look on your big day. You should give enough thought to the dresses you choose for the bridesmaids so they look their best and remain comfortable and confident all day long. While it is not advisable to leave all the decisions in the hands of your girl friends, you still want to hear their thoughts and try fitting your idea into theirs so everybody is happy in the end. Is it rustic chic, classic, or vintage glam? The wedding style can actually ease up things when looking at the dress options. Ensure you match the dresses with the theme. It is a good start to having a bridal party that is bright enough for the day. Check out the following bridesmaids dresses by colour and theme that could work for different wedding motifs.
Blush / Pink : The light and soft pink is also an ideal choice for many bridesmaids. You know that its shades represent sweetness and love. It can explain why Valentines Day cards have a generous touch of pink, and why wedding cakes have hear-shaped toppings in pink. When a bridesmaid is wearing pink dress, she will not steal bride’ s thunder but still can be very sweet and charming.

Ombre Dresses : Ombre is a very trendy concept nowadays – but it normally applies to hair colour rather than bridesmaid dresses! However, it’s a great way to get creative with your wedding party theme. Bkue ombre bridesmaids via Pinterest , Black ombre via pinterest
Don’t be afraid to consider a seemingly over-the-top idea like this, because you can always opt to tone it down a little. For instance, instead of making your attendants wear a dress with such a striking gradient colour effect, you could opt for each girl to wear a different shade of hue that corresponds to your overall decor instead. Carefully chosen styles in complementary colours will create a lovely, muted ombre effect, especially in photos, and will allow the bride to stand out in flawless and immaculate white. The ombre effect also looks great for the procession down the aisle. But apart from the aesthetic benefit, this kind of theme will also provide you with more options when picking out a colour for the party.

Roaring Twenties Dresses : Vintage will never go out of style and it’s never a bad idea as a wedding theme! There are multiple benefits to choosing vintage for your bridesmaid dresses. For starters, you can easily scout for authentic vintage finds in thrift shops as a cheaper alternative, and you don’t have to worry about everyone wearing the same style as long as they stick to the theme. Furthermore, there is an appeal in having your attendants wear dresses belonging to a specific era; it creates a more relaxed ambience, while still maintaining the coherence of your wedding theme.
