After all, every woman has her own opinion and it’s nearly impossible to please all your bridesmaids. Make sure that you have the “emergency” sweet fund for you and your girls – this is a must have in the overwhelmed moments fulfilled with the emotions.
Fortunately, here’s a list of the latest bridesmaids dress shades that will work and look gorgeous on all your bridesmaids. These colors not only compliment all hair colors and skin tones; they will also bring out the best of your bridal crew. However, before digging into the latest shades this year, it is important you know what it takes to choose the best.
Selecting Your Bridesmaids’ Dress Color
Choosing the perfect color for your bridal crew is easy to do. One of the things you need to take into consideration is the color schemes of the day and the season. For example, if the ceremony will take place in a rustic vineyard featuring burgundy décor, you can play with rich colors like emerald and marsala in the fall and winter months. Lighter shades like lavender and mint are perfect for spring and summer seasons.
However, if you are still at a loss for the best hue to choose, you should go for a general color that works well with any theme and season. For example, champagne is an elegant color. If you want to push the envelope even further, go for floral-prints, which are also hot now.
Your bridesmaid dresses should compliment your main color scheme and look great in photos. To help you get started, here are a few ideas.
