How to dress bridesmaids drawing inspiration from Pantone colours of 2017

As if taking care of your own wedding dress, hairstyle and reception wasn’t enough, the bride can’t afford to not give the green light to the look of those who will be her bridesmaids on her wedding day. Of course, a lot of bridesmaids means a lot of work, but maybe this little “how to dress bridesmaids” vademecum will make your life easier.

How to dress bridesmaids? If your friends’ temper is hard to control, the one thing you must decide by yourself  is the colour of their bridesmaids dresses.

Banished black and white too (there is already one dress of that colour) the way is clear for every colour palettes inspired by the season the wedding is celebrated in.

The colour of your choice can be unique, but it’s better if it’s applied on different styles of dresses, in order to fit the body shape of all your bridesmaids. It could also be multiplied in different hues to create a very pretty “degrade bridesmaids” effect.

Another option is to choose different colours altogether, but don’t forget to keep an overall balance: a rose hardly gets along well with brown undertones.

The other leitmotiv which will unite all your bridesmaids will be made of flowers: the second most precious bouquet will be theirs, perfectly matched with the colour of their dresses and, of course, recalling the bride’s flowers.


Your bridesmaids will be beautiful and brightly lit by shiny colours, but never overdone.
Remember: the star of the day is only one, and she must be the brightest of them all!
