Pale Pink Bridemaid Dress Ideas with Bouquets and Shoes
Taking our inspiration for this article about Pale Pink Bridesmaid dresses right from nature…
so romantic, this traditional wedding flower… Pale Pink Peony…
This adorable Betsy Johnson dress keeps it simple, pattern on patterned fabric with muted icy blue peep-toe heels is a fun way to introduce blue to your wedding palette. Keeping the bridesmaid bouquet in similar pinks allows for the introduction of the additional color (blue) in this bridesmaid look without making it look disconnected.
We kept the same bouquet of mixed pinks and corals to go with this next look ~ Rustic-Country is easy with a simple soft pink dress and cute cowboy boots. Loving country-rustic doesn’t mean you can’t have a “girlie” look for your bridesmaids. Choose a traditional hue like a soft, pale pink to keep the look feminine (even with the cowboy boots!) and romantic.
We’re going to start going a little darker in the pink as we move through this article… ever so slightly. Add a little depth in texture and design to your bridesmaid dress design along with a contemporary dress design will give your bridesmaids’ look some edge. Pairing them with strappy sandals in turbulence gray works beautifully. Even though there is movement in both the dress & shoe designs with fabric detail and straps and buckles, the simplicity of the dress design keeps the look anchored. This also allows for a little more texture in the choice of bridesmaid bouquet for this look.
Back to country-rustic bridesmaid ideas! How cute is this dress?! Choose a lighter colored cowboy boot to keep the look romantic. Adding beautiful peonies in pink and white accentuates the pink gingham fabric in the bridesmaid dress.
Contemporary brides can still be romantic in their look! It’s all in the fabric – color and texture. Choosing a bridesmaid dress in soft fabric and a pretty pink automatically makes the look feel romantic. Add a contemporary metallic strappy sandal to give the look a little more edge. Choosing a traditional bridesmaid bouquet in peonies mirrors the soft texture and design of this bridesmaid dress and ties the whole look together.
Contemporary-romance-elegant. This waterfall dress is lovely and makes a statement immediately with it’s soft flowing fabric and dress design. To add contrast to the look add a pair of gladiator-style, muted metallic strappy sandals. This keeps the look trendy, and still ultra-romantic. We chose a bouquet in all pink peonies for this look to mirror the fabric and design of the dress. Any peony or larger soft-petaled floral bouquet would work beautifully with this bridesmaid dress choice.
Love pale pink but afraid it’s too “cutesy”? Choose your dress in an elegant fabric like damask, bridal satin, or silk duponi with a lace overlay and in an elegant design. Add a metallic shoe in a traditional style, and choose an understated floral bouquet to not make the look too busy.
Love this look! Your bridesmaids will love you if you choose a shift dress for them!
Talk about comfortable dress to wear. And the A-line works for all body-types. Remember to allow your bridesmaids the option of alterations so they feel comfortable in the dress you choose for them. Real Planner Advice: Think about the length of the skirt when you give your bridesmaid their alteration guidelines. Using this dress for example, be clear about how much they can come in on the waist and how short (or long) they can have their dress hemmed. There is nothing worse than a too short bridesmaid skirt stealing the show in your bridal party wedding photos (or wedding for that matter!) And yes, we’ve seen it in real life, it’s not pretty… and on the day of… it’s too late to do anything about it, so be clear about your alteration guidelines with your bridesmaids.
How about pink gingham? This would work perfectly for a Vintage-styled wedding. Your bridesmaids would immediately set the tone (and theme!) of your Country-Vintage wedding with this pink gingham dress. Simple, traditional pumps give the look anchor and keep it “vintage” and in white they off-set the white bib-neck on the dress. Keeping it country we added a mixed pink floral bouquet. Real Wedding Planner Advice: It’s okay to chose mixed colors in your bouquet with a patterned dress, but keep them all in the same kind of of flower to keep the texture to a minimum. Remember to give your florist (or wedding planner) a swatch of your bridesmaids’ dress fabric so they can coordinate the bouquets’ flowers’ hue to the dress.
Love lace? Love the trendy Mint Green? Combine them all in your pretty pink bridesmaid dress ensembles! Real Wedding Planner Advice: Remember to keep your florals simple and in all one color with this look. There’s a lot of movement in the dress with the pretty lace, and adding the pop of mint in the shoe is great!
But! If you add more color in your bridesmaid bouquet it might over power the look as a whole. We chose a simple (and inexpensive) all white hydrangea bouquet for this look … the texture of the hydrangea mirrors the lace in the pretty pink lace bridesmaid dress.
