As you have more than likely noticed while sitting in the pews of your friends’ weddings, it has become very much the thing over the past few years to dress one’s bridesmaids in varying yet complimentary dresses, instead of the exact same one. Whether you give them a color palette and tell them to knock themselves out or give them a handful of different colors and styles to choose from that you’ve selected, we wholeheartedly encourage you to go for this look with your ladies—it’s just so pretty and visually interesting, especially in photos. Plus, it totally ups the chances that each of your friends will actually really love the dress they end up wearing that day.
Philly-based BHLDN‘s bridesmaids dresses have always worked really well for this concept—it’s probably especially the first brand that comes to my mind now that J.Crew’s bridesmaids offerings have left us for good—and to help brides navigate their selection and visualize different options for their parties’ frocks, they’ve recently shot a “mix-and-match” guide with what they say are spring’s five biggest hues of the moment. Check out their suggestions below—then round up your girls and start making selections over here.
So, which look is right for your wedding?
