Choosing Colors for Your Bridesmaids

When choosing your bridesmaids dresses, there are a lot of things to consider. Of course, choosing a beautiful color for the dress is one of the biggest decisions. Not all of your bridesmaids are the same, and it is important to remember that some colors may not suit one of your bridesmaids as well as the other. We are excited to share these helpful tips to guide your color choices from CEO and Founder of Vow to be Chic, Kelsey Doorey.

For your bridesmaids dresses, make sure to choose a color that is universally flattering and looks great on a variety of skin tones, such as charcoal, beige, champagne, or blush. These beautiful, neutral colors are a safe way to suit all of your bridesmaids’s skin tones and are perfectly on-trend.


When choosing colors for your bridesmaids’ skin tones, keep in mind that warm colors, like red and gold, compliment darker skin tones whereas cooler tones, like sage, indigo, and deep purple, are gorgeous on a fair complexion.


Many brides are mixing different colors and styles into their bridal party. If your bridesmaids are all going to wear different colors, make sure to choose a general color, like blue, and let your bridesmaids choose their favorite shades for a trendy mix and match look. This looks beautiful and modern, and creates great photos!


Embellished dresses are on-trend this season, especially floral dresses, but sometimes less is more. Consider dressing only your maid-of-honor in a floral print and the rest of your maids in a matching solid shade. Sequin gowns are also gorgeous. Mixing a rose gold sequin gown with a solid blush is the perfect way to add a little sparkle to your wedding.


We hope these helpful tips from Vow to be Chic will guide you and your bridesmaids along your wedding planning journey. Choosing a gorgeous neutral color and mixing in different styles will make your girls look and feel absolutely gorgeous and confident!
