Since you were a little girl, you’ve most likely fantasized about your wedding dress. Haven’t we all? But, in thinking about your ideal wedding dress, it’s also instrumentally important to consider who will be standing beside you—and I don’t just mean the groom! Your bridesmaids will be by your side before and during the ceremony, and mostly likely throughout the course of the entire reception. So, picking a color palette for your bridesmaids is a major pillar of your wedding aesthetic. Do you want to go the neutral route? Do you want to let your bridesmaids pick their own dress? There are many factors to consider, so feel free to mix and match different colors and textures to create the bridal party look that suits your vision.
And don’t forget, matching robes or sunglasses can make for excellent bridal gifts—and even better photo opportunities.
