You know the joke about the friend who has a closet full of bridesmaid dresses in hideous colors? Don’t be the bride that contributes yet another dress to the collection. If you like your bridesmaids – and if they’re standing up with you at your wedding, we bet you do – choose a bridesmaid dress that they’ll fall in love with. This starts with picking the perfect color.
Tips for choosing your wedding colors.
Every savvy bride knows that your bridesmaid dress colors are dependent on your overall wedding colors. To pick the perfect combination, start with two primary colors and one or two accent colors that complement your style and the season in which the wedding will take place. When presented together, these colors should provide contrast and harmony. A great way to choose your palette is with paint color apps, like this one from Behr.
Pantone also is a great resource for popular wedding trend colors. For example, one of the hottest colors for women for Spring/Summer 2015, is PANTONE 14-5714. An airy green with a dreamy feel, this Lucite green color introduces a cool and calming earthy vibe perfect for your bridesmaids.

The next step in selecting a bridesmaid dress that will actually be worn again is to pair a great fabric with that perfect color you’ve selected. One of the most romantic and flattering fabrics for all types of maids is Tulle. With its light, airy feel, and the ability to be layered upon itself to create various shades of the same color, it will be hard for you find a dress style which doesn’t look amazing in Tulle!
