If you’re struggling to choose the aesthetic you want for your wedding VIPs, consider a mix & match bridal party. And one step better…a blush bridal party. This pale, soft and romantic shade of pink looks stunning in every setting. If you start with blush as your signature color, you can use it as a guide to mix and match your bridal party outfits.
Read on for our tips for choosing blush bridesmaid dresses.
Choose a universally-flattering shade
While blush is a beautiful shade, it’s not always the most flattering on certain skin tones. Very pale or fair skin tones can sometimes prove a little washed out when matched with blush. However, this is completely avoidable if you find the right shade. Go for blush tones which are a little deeper, with a little more pink as opposed to very nude or white-based. The more depth of color there is, the brighter your paler bridesmaids’ complexions will be.
Play with different styles
Once you’ve chosen your perfect shade of blush to flatter all of your girls, you can start to add a point of different for each bridesmaid. Mix and match wedding parties are great because they give each bridesmaid the chance to show her own style while still fitting the aesthetic. One could wear a mini with longer sleeves, one could wear a midi with a halterneck, and one could wear a simple shift with an off-the-shoulder neckline. These are just a few suggestions to get your mind thinking over the many possibilities. If all of your bridesmaids are wearing the same shade of blush, the same makeup story and similar hair styles, your bridal party will be cohesive no matter how contrasting the dress styles are.
Add brightness with makeup
The great part about subtler colors for bridesmaid dresses is that it leaves a lot of room for more color elsewhere. To add a fresh pop of brightness, you can choose bolder makeup shades. Keep the cheeks flushed, blushed and bronzed, and go for a pop of color on the lips such as a fuschia or coral. Blush is such a feminine, soft and romantic dress color, you can really play it up by choosing feminine makeup shades and glowing skin to match.
Play up the romance with soft accessories
Hair and makeup aren’t the only ways to add your own flair and special touch to your blush bridesmaid dresses. Think about what kind of jewelry, shoes and hair accessories you could add to the overall look. The softness of blush goes stunningly well with other soft shades and textures. You could find white or cream-colored flowers to create hair accessories for your bridesmaids, tucked into their hair for a feminine accent.
Blush is an absolutely beautiful color choice for your bridal party. Start by finding a shade to flatter all of your bridesmaids, bringing out the beauty of each complexion. Bring a unique touch to your wedding party by having a mix and match collection of bridesmaid dresses, with each bridesmaid wearing her own individual style. Your wedding will not only be soft, romantic, feminine and photo-friendly, but it will be memorable and unique.
