I know how hungry all you brides are for bridesmaid ideas and inspiration, so today I am satisfying your cravings with a guest post by Lenni Stratton, manager of wedding boutique Lily & Iris in Salt Lake City. Lenni has some good advice for selecting bridesmaid dresses and and gives us the 411 on the hottest bridesmaid dress color trends of the season (three cheers for turquoise, my fave color!). Take it away, Lenni…
For most brides, the second thing on her to-do list (after finding the wedding gown, of course!) is deciding on the bridesmaid ensembles. Not only are the bridesmaid dresses one of the most fun ways to infuse a burst of color and style into your big day–and especially your photos–but they are often a great way to determine the overall look and feel of your day. Once you have the style and color of your dresses selected, you can easily build a day to match. Just about everything is easier to choose once you know what your bridal party will be wearing, from flowers to bow ties to napkins.
One of the most popular color trends we are seeing here at Lily & Iris consists of shades of aqua, teal and turquoise. The bold jewel tones of teal and turquoise are perfect on their own, or paired with softer shades of aqua and Tiffany blue. These colors are especially great if you are wanting to mix colors for your girls.
With these colors, you have plenty of options for your overall look.
Whether you want short and flirty:
Or long and elegant:
There are plenty of options! Here are a few other dresses available at Lily & Iris to satisfy your cravings for all things aqua and teal!
Thank you for the guest post, Lenni!
