Using “Blushes” of any color lends an instant feel of romance and gives a light airy feel to the design base of any wedding. Choosing Blush for your bridesmaid dresses will work in any length and season, adding instant elegance, especially in chiffon, taffeta, and even jersey!
In this segment of our Blush Bridesmaid Dress Inspiration article we’ll be focusing on more pink-y blush hues.
Wedding traditional! This blush-mauve bridesmaid dress from ModCloth.com is simply lovely. Understated, and in just the right blush-tone, paired with a muted-sparkly gold strappy sandal and a soft, creamy-white peony bridemaid bouquet completes the ensemble.
Real Wedding Planner Advice: If you want your bridesmaids to splurge on designer-named shoes for your wedding, keep the dress in the “affordable” price range. Lisa Sammons Events recommends ModCloth for unique bridesmaid dress choices that don’t break the bank. Modcloth.com is our go-to suggestion for unique bridesmaid dress choices for our clients. Not only because Modcloth is a paid site advertiser, but because they are a smart decision for “one-off” dress purchases like bridesmaid dresses.
Here’s another elegant blush chiffon dress from ModCloth! The cross-haltertop neckline and design of this blush bridesmaid dress will flatter all body types. Keeping your bridesmaids’ dresses simplified in design allows for more “pop” in their accessories. We added a pair of Jimmy Choo strappy sandals with a little sparkle to pick up the sheen in the dress’ satin ribbon “belt”. Adding a bridesmaid bouquet with abundant texture gives this bridesmaid ensemble a little more oomph.
Real Wedding Planner Style Tip: With any draped fabric neckline, keep your bridesmaids’ jewelry to a minimum. One bracelet, or earrings are all that you need for this look. The beautiful detail in the dress’ neckline design keeps your bridesmaids’ look understated and elegant.
Here’s another cute dress from Modcloth. We’ve paired this dress with a simple silver strappy sandal from J.Crew. Note how we kept the bouquet choice in all one color and texture to keep the ensemble from looking too busy.
Here’s the same dress from ModCloth using the same principle with the all-white bridesmaid bouquet. To give this bridesmaid’s look a Country-rustic feel we just changed the shoe and simply added a cowboy boot. With this look, there is a lot of movement in the texture of the dress fabric and design and the cowboy boot. To give this country bridesmaid ensemble more of a “wedding-y” feel, we paired the dress with a light colored cowboy boot to give the look more “country-romance” – With the addition of this beautifully designed cowboy boot we chose a soft all white peony bouquet to tie the ensemble together.
Lisa Sammons Events was sourcing bridesmaid dresses recently for a client of our’s and found this Modcloth,com dress to save our bride’s “maids” some money on their ensemble. This bride’s wedding style is country-rustic, with a touch of vintage, so it was easy… add a pair of cowboy boots, chiffon fabric with delicate lace detail in the dress, and a soft lace-y feel to the bridesmaid bouquet.
Are you a traditional-elegant bride with a contemporary style? Don’t be afraid to choose a bridesmaid dress with a patterned fabric or lace overlay. Real Wedding Planner Style Tip: When shopping, look for a bridesmaid dress in a traditional “style”but with patterned fabric. When putting your bridesmaids’ ensemble together, choose a shoe in an accent color that is noted in the dress’ fabric pattern to bring more contemporary “feel” to the look.
For a traditional-elegant wedding... you can’t go wrong with lace… ever. Paired with a soft petaled bridesmaid bouquet in the same hues as your bridesmaids’ dress and silver strappy Jimmy Choos – and you are done!
With this bridesmaid ensemble went a little darker with the dress to show how you can create contrast with several different “styles” in one look. This contemporary dress in crepe works wonderfully spring, summer, winter or fall weddings. Real Wedding Planner Advice: Try introducing your secondary wedding color (illustrated here in the jade peep-toe) in your bridesmaid shoes. Real Wedding Planner Style Tip: Remember to keep your bouquet simplified and in the same “texture” as your dress for this look. Ask your wedding planner to help you with the design notes to keep your details cohesive with your florist.
As always, we saved our favorite look for last! We softened it up a bit for this article’s last bridesmaid dress look, and to lead into introduce our next segment (Part III of Blush Bridesmaid dress ideas!). Adding a Badgley-Mischka peep-toe pump in the same color as this beautiful bridesmaid dress was easy. This choice of shoe allows for the pop in the bridesmaid bouquet, and we were able to add the dark purple our client wanted to introduce as her secondary wedding color to compliment her bridesmaids’ ensemble.
