Deciding on your bridesmaid gowns is no easy task, especially when you have picky friends in your bridal party… Between finding a gown that everyone feels comfortable in, to choosing a color that flatters the color scheme of the wedding, there are many factors to consider in this decision. We’ve put together the top 5 bridesmaid dress themes that are overall extremely flattering, classy, and currently trendy for 2022-2023.
At number one, I have to admit that black bridesmaids dresses look phenomenal next to the bride and groom, and do not typically clash with much. Whether you’re getting married in a church or a forest, both sceneries will complement black bridesmaids dresses. We have seen in recent trends a shift toward more neutral weddings and have found that greenery and certain florals look amazing with black and white.
2. Color Palette
For color lovers, don’t worry we have something for you too. I think going non-traditional and choosing a palette of colors is a unique and fun take for your bridesmaids gowns. Rather than picking just one color, choose a palette of 3-4 colors that go well together and your bridesmaids can choose between them. This is a great alternative to choosing just one so that your bridal party can go with the color that best suits their skin tone.
Though not a color, satin is such a stunning accent fabric that will really make your wedding party feel and look elevated. Satin dresses can be done in any color, or a variety if you want to do a satin color pallet. Choosing a fabric that differs from the rest of the fabrics will add an eye-catching element in photos, and overall look very elegant.
And for my personal favorite, we have neutral dresses. Neutral colors, brown, cream, beige, taupe, and gray, are the most flattering shades on the widest variety of people. Any of these varieties will complement greenery, florals, and the bride and groom. When in doubt, go neutral.
5. Green or Blue
If neutrals just aren’t for you, or you just want a little extra something in your bridal party, the next best choice would be green or blue bridesmaid dresses. A warm mint or sage green is very complimentary to outdoor weddings in the spring and summer. An added bonus to going with blue gowns is incorporating that ‘something blue’ without having to actually wear it yourself.
Go with the color that you truly want, because it’s your special day. These are merely our suggestions, and popular trends that we’ve seen within recent wedding seasons. Happy wedding planning!
