Mixed Bridesmaid Dresses: Neutral, Blush, Black – Part 1
Here’s the second part of our “How to” on Mixed Bridesmaid Dresses for your bridesmaids.
We thought it would be fun to focus on 3 color groups to show you how you can mix and match either color, styles, fabric, or pattern with your bridesmaid dresses. For part 1 of this article, we’ve chosen Blush, Neutral, & Black Bridesmaid dresses for the “how to” examples.
Mixing the colors is easy, just make sure you keep the accessories the same to anchor your bridal parties look when choosing mixed bridesmaid dresses for your wedding.
If you have an eclectic kind of style, having mixed dress styles as your “mix” is easy if you keep them all in the same color/hue. Using this mix of bridesmaid dresses, you can see how it really sets the tone of the wedding just with your bridesmaid dresses.
Even with using all the same “color” for your mixed bridesmaid dresses, we advise still having your bridesmaids wear all the same shoe and carry the same bouquet so your bridal party “look” doesn’t overwhelm the eye.
Using neutral bridesmaid dresses as an example for this mixed bridesmaid dress idea, we changed it up a bit and used several neutral tones, fabrics and dress styles. What to remember with this bridal party look is to keep all the hems at the same length, and keep the skirts in a similar design (in this case flowing or soft pleats) This look would be fantastic for a country-rustic wedding paired with some cowboy boots.
Same idea as always, keep the same shoe choice and bouquet for all your bridesmaids.
How about Black & Tan for your bridesmaids? Easy to do, remember, length of hem. With this mixed bridesmaid dress grouping, the dress designs are varied. So the advice with this bridal party look was to make sure the bodices were similar in design.
And again, a reminder to keep the same shoe and bouquet for all your bridesmaids to anchor the bridal party look.
Here is the Black and Tan Bridesmaid dress idea again, hems all at the same length, similar skirt design, but we threw in a strapless bodice to mix it up a little. Adding a belt in black ties the strapless dress into the rest of the group. It’s as easy as just adding a simple accessory to tie it all together.
Even if you have black in your mixed bridesmaid dress bridal party, using a neutral shoe is a beautiful choice so you can still give your bridal party ensemble anchor as a whole.
