What are traditional colours for bridesmaids’ dresses?

Tradition isn’t for everyone and as its your big day you should also go with what you and your partner feel suits your celebration and how you want the overall days theme to appear in precious memorial pictures when looking back on the day in future years to come.

 

What colour pallet is best for my bridesmaids?

Finding a colour pallet, which is fitting for your bridesmaids all boils, down to what colour suits them all and you so that you as one look like a team and the wedding party is easily recognisable to your guests. The best way to do this to do lots of colour research, what flowers do you like? Also what flowers are in season around your wedding date? There is no point in having your heart set on peony’s for a winter wedding as they are only in season late Spring, vice versa sunflowers if part of your desired theme dictate the date you can wed. Making friends with your chosen florist is a great idea so that they can advise what flowers are available to you on your chosen date You may find that the dress you love doesn’t look as great as you thought in the colour to match your theme so its all a case of trial and error to see which beautiful Goddiva bridesmaid gown suits your flowers and venue.

What are unique colours that my bridesmaids can wear?

Unusual colours that brides have been choosing for their bridal team are cerise pinks, mint greens, tropical oranges or even vibrant limes. These colours are more fitting to summer weddings, but will also give a bright touch to a winter wedding. Winter weddings are increasingly popular and Disney Frozen’s Ice queen Elsa has led the way for our powder blue shade to be very popular. These ladies look fantastic in their powder blue Goddiva dresses in different styles but the colour palette unites them in use as bridesmaid dresses.

Do my bridesmaids all have to wear the same colour?

Traditionally, bridesmaids are all in the same colour, that way it is easier to pick them out from the crowd so they don’t look like a guest. But, what a lot of brides are doing nowadays is having the same colour dresses but different styles of bridesmaid dress to flatter each ladies figure. Another popular approach brides are having in recent years are picking a contrast of two colours and having bridesmaids standing in alternate colours for professional photography this can be a nice modern affect to a traditional group shot. Another thing that some brides do is have their bridesmaids in one colour and have their maid of honour in another i.e. bridesmaids in a blush while the maid of honour may wear cerise pink. There are no rules when it comes to modern marriages yourself and your partner writes those, as it’s your day!
