We’re back this month with yet another blog packed full of great style tips and ideas to help you create the perfect wedding day of your dreams.
We are always on the lookout for the latest bridal trends. You may have already read our previous blog on Groom styling, which offered great style tips for your groom and groomsmen. This month we focus our attention on bridesmaids.
Long gone are the days, when bridesmaids were coordinated from head to toe in matching attire, matching dresses, matching hairstyles and matching accessories. These days more and more brides are getting creative in terms of choosing the right style for their bridesmaids. As women we all have our own unique sense of style, so wouldn’t it be great if you could find a style that is not only in keeping with your wedding theme but also allows you to showcase the personality and individuality of your bridesmaids?
Three things to take into consideration when styling your bridesmaids:
- Height of your bridesmaids
- Body type and structure
- Hair colour, complexion and skin tone
With that in mind, here is our quick style guide on how to achieve the best individual looks for your bridesmaids.
Colour Blend: Choose a colour and coordinate your bridesmaid’s style using the same family of colours. Work with lighter or darker shades of the same palette to complement individual hair colour, complexion and skin tone.
Contrast Fabric Styling: Finding the right fabric to suit individual body types and structure is essential. The weight of a fabric, its design, pattern or detailing can be used to flatter, contour or complement individual body types. Helping you achieve the perfect style for each of your bridesmaids. Key to achieving this look is staying within your chosen theme and working with the same colour palette throughout.
Pastels: We love this style, pastel colours are perfect for spring weddings but can also be a great choice in terms of ease of styling. Again this goes back to skin tone and complexion. It is always an idea to choose the right colours to complement skin tone. Encourage your bridesmaids to try on shades that work with their natural colouring and complexion.
Silhouette and Structure: Consider the dress length, neckline and the silhouette of each bridesmaid dress. This will also influence other style choices in terms of hair styling and accessories that are used to personalise, complement and achieve each individual look.
Patterns and Prints: Don’t be afraid to experiment and try out patterns and bold prints. Floral prints are a fantastic style choice and can be used to complement any wedding theme, giving that added wow factor!
