Hosting a wedding later this year? Lucky for you (and your bridesmaids) pastels are back in a big way! Sorbet hues showed up on countless Spring/Summer 2014 runways meaning there will be no shortage of gorgeous pastel gowns for your friends to try on when it comes time to pick their bridesmaid dresses.
Pastel colours can make for gorgeous, ultra-feminine bridal party dresses. One great thing about them is the fact that pastels come in such a huge variety of hues and shades. With all these options, you’re sure to find the perfect shade to flatter the skin tone of each lovely lady in your bridal party. The countless hues also make pastels a great option if you’ve decided to go with mismatched dresses for your bridesmaids.
These colours are known for being super sweet and girly, but don’t limit them based on their prim rep! Robin’s egg blue and peach-coloured gowns would perfectly accentuate the scenery in a tropical setting while pale pinks, lilacs and creams could be worn alongside bolder violets, rich burgundy, and even black to fit a more elegant, Victorian-era-inspired wedding theme.
If you decide to go with this unique palette for your bridesmaids, remember the trick is balancing out these sugary shades with the right amount of neutral tones and even some shimmery, metallic accessories.
