12 Unique Bridesmaids Dress Ideas
So, you did it! You finally found your perfect wedding dress. You love the look, the way it makes you feel, and it was worth every penny. Congrats to you on securing one of the most important elements of your wedding day.
But, alas, there is still work to be done.
What should your bridesmaids wear that will compliment your perfect dress? You are probably thinking that you don’t want the old standard, run-of-the-mill type dresses. You are special and unique and your bridesmaid dresses should be too!
If you want to stay on trend, bright and bold colours are in right now with hues such as purple, orange, or pink. In addition, dresses with multiple layers or tiers and fit and flare skirts are also on point. But if you want to go truly unique, you may want to consider the mix-and-match bridesmaid dresses! Mixing and matching allows you to cater to your bridesmaid’s individual styles and bodies while creating a stunning and unique look for your wedding party. The following are some of our favorite unique bridesmaid dress ideas:
- Different hues:
Enhance your colour palette theme by having your ladies wear different hues of your wedding colours. We especially like shades of grey for the upcoming year!
- Go ombre:
Create an ombre look, but make sure each dress is a full shade apart. Consider a mint ombre for a modern look.
- Utilize texture:
Don’t be afraid to use different textures such as sequins, lace, or ruffles to create a fun and unique look.
Go for the gold and go metallic! Metallics are also a great way to introduce those textures we were just talking about.
- Popping Colours:
Use bright, bold colours or go with bright color themes such as mixed berries or rainbow.
You can find some gorgeous retro dresses. Channel your inner 50’s, 60’s, or 70’s child to go with a cool vintage look.
The nautical theme isn’t just for the beach anymore. Incorporate navy or patterns such as anchors to create this sea-worthy look.
- Alternate black and neutral:
A really eye-popping look is having alternating black and neutral dresses. Think black and beige or black and blush.
- Funky patterns:
Give a common colour, but let each bridesmaid choose a different, eclectic pattern.
This is a classic. With the bride generally wearing white, it’s natural to want to contrast that with the exact opposite shade so you can shine even brighter. Plus, everyone looks good in a little black dress!
- Varied necklines:
You can all rock the same colour or go with different hues, but have each bridesmaid have a different neckline for a unique look.
- Free for all:
If you want to go truly unique, throw away all the rules and have your bridesmaids wear whatever they want! Let their own styles shine through giving you a truly unique look.
Choosing the right bridesmaid dresses can be fun and fresh if you go with the unique mix and match look. Choose wisely and remember: This should be fun, not stressful! Ensure that you’re keeping your mood in high spirits while shopping for your bridesmaids dress and you’ll ensure that everyone will have a great experience.
