What are the most in-demand bridesmaid dress colours?
The lovely Esther & Co team shared their thoughts on the most popular colours for bridesmaid dresses. We are happy to share our insights.
“We are seeing more brides and maids who prefer soft champagne tones and earthier mauves and rust tones. We also see navy as a timeless colour more often for mother-of-the-bride looks.
Which colour is most flattering for bridesmaids?
Esther & Co recommend darker-toned gowns such as navy and dark mauve if you aren’t keen on black bridesmaids’ dresses. They are flattering to all skin tones.
The fabrication of bridesmaid gowns can significantly impact the choice of colours. The waterfall/knife pleating looks great on many shapes, the relaxed fit is more flattering for the bridesmaids, and it is easy to photograph in rich tones like terracotta, mustard, copper, mustard and taupe. The earthy colours are great for various themes, including rustic and rural weddings or luxe bohemian ceremonies.
Green is a great choice for spring weddings or whimsical garden events. Recent years have seen emerald, forest, and sage green become very popular. They are perfect for fresh colour palettes that include pops of white to contrast the green tones.
Blush pink, another timeless colour for bridesmaid dresses, is perfect for romantic garden weddings during the warmer months. This shade is particularly beautiful in satin, and we love its subtlety. It’s easy to find blush-coloured dresses for your bridal party, as it is the most widely used colour in bridesmaid dresses.
Soft peach, a similar colour to blush but with a more modern take, is a versatile colour for bridesmaid dresses that can be paired with pastel flowers and romantic pastels. Soft peach, a timeless and fun colour, is great for spring and summer weddings. It also works well in garden, beach, and winery settings.
