Dusk Blue Bridesmaid Dresses: Let’s start with a little inspiration: Dusk Blue is captured perfectly by Claude Monet in his painting below. Looking out the window as I write this at dusk, I never really noticed how there really is a particular “Dusk Blue” right before sunset. It seems only fitting that we take our inspiration from the below Monet piece, and nature, pairing with soft oranges and reds created by during sunset.  The softness of the sky and the vibrance of any striking sunset would make a gorgeous wedding color combination, no matter what the season.
