Following our last post and theme of everything bold, now is the time for those Bridesmaids dresses to get in on the action. Now is most definitely not the time to shy away: the colour schemes are bold and vivacious. Bridesmaids aren’t normally the ones that are to be looked at, but with this Spring seasons colour schemes it’s the Bridesmaids that are causing the head turning:
Purples are used a lot in weddings but normally the more fail safe lavender options, or the even dusky almost cream purples. This Spring/Summer the purple tone has to be jewel like. Bright and punchy this purple themed bridesmaids dress doesn’t have to overpower. Keep the floral bouquets plain – think plain creams, finish the look with minimal jewellery or accessories.

Green is an obvious choice when it comes to fresh new Spring weddings, but instead for opting safe mint tones, try going for metallic greens and grassy, earthy tones. Greens looks especially good when teamed with other jewel like colours, even purple. Try matching your green to the type of dress – contemporary shapes look better in lighter, fresher greens, whilst classic shapes suit the stronger tones.
This year, choose a punchy blue. One that is almost regal. The intensity of this blue really will make the bridesmaids sparkle – this is one for the more fearless. Try teaming a contrasting colour on the bouquet for a real eye catching twist with fuscia pink.
