Since when has it become salonable to dress the bridesmaids in white? Is it not unwritten law that only the bride may be dressed in white? We take a closer look at this with the blanco question and give you styling tips; Real ideas that we have seen and inspired us as wedding photographers.
A bride in white, four, five bridesmaids in lilac, coral, delicate yellow, or dark blue – perfectly clear that the lady of the day stands out and her “court state” has a different dress colour. BUT, ladies: It may surprise you, but the custom of coloured bridesmaid dresses is relatively new and – American.
Earlier, the bridesmaids were dressed in white. Why? Legends say that the bridesmaids traditionally wore white, so that any evil spirits who sabotaged the wedding and were most likely to seek young brides as victims were confused. Because everyone was dressed in white, they did not know who the bride was.
It’s long ago. But what do we find? Cara Delevigne appeared ‘en blanc’ and duchess Kate dressed sister Pippa also in white – is it a trend, which must be considered for your own wedding?
It is of course a matter of taste. BUT: In 2017, it is no longer taboo to appear colourless. A touch boho, lace, minimal chic or timeless elegance: White bridesmaid dresses are the hit when they match your style of wedding. Any doubts? Look at these photos and convince yourself that the white bridesmaids are beautiful – and their brides are even more beautiful, not to mention their Highlight of wedding photos.
Styling tips for bridesmaids – general tips
It may happen that the styling of the bridesmaids (and haunted ones, oha!) Somewhat goes down, after all, it is about the bride and groom, no question. However, we find: For the harmonious overall look, it is a must to give the styling of the maid of honour and bridesmaids. Plus: A wedding will only be organized and helped by the people who are celebrating. The more beautiful and happier your girls are in your day, the more beautiful you look as a bride and not at last of all the most beautiful wedding photos.
So before deciding how your bridesmaids should look like, you should know what your dress looks like and how the wedding is celebrated. Then you can choose a look for the ladies that highlights your style.
• What is the colour palette? Let the colours go into the dresses of the bridesmaids
• barn or industrial chic? Pass your clothes selection to the location
If it is possible, enter your maids into the clothes selection. Our flavours are different, and none of the girls should be dissatisfied with their dress.
Color of the dress: Colorful or monochrome
If you choose uni, it looks nice when it
• A main colour from your wedding table is often found in the decoration, or
• The dress has the same colour as the groom ‘s neck tie
It can also look really nice, if you cut cuts, colours and length. Not all people stand the same clothes. In order for a unit to be created, you can play with the same accessories or clothing instead of the same clothes:
• (Statement) chains / jewellery
• Flowery hair decoration
Clothing pieces / colours
• crop tops
• Colour palettes: nude, taupe, Gray, off-white, or another colour spectrum.
• Different materials in the same colour: pallets, tip, dots…
Styling ideas – something more unusual
You do not have to decide for the traditional dress – you can also give your wedding a unique touch by combining different dresses – such as maxi skirts and blouses, jumpsuits with flowers or tulle skirts in different lengths and solid colour tops – You all have more options and choices.
Another plus, if you deviate from the traditional dress: Your bridesmaids can still wear their wedding outfit on other days. And when you choose Mix & Match, you can choose pieces of clothing that fit any figure. So every bridesmaid gets their money’s worth and will feel good and beautiful. And a last extra point: You have the possibility to add more of your wedding colours to the outfits – for example with stripes, prints or colour combinations.
So that you can imagine a little better what we mean, we have selected as inspiration some outfits at Instagram.
- 1.Skirt & Blouse
Because the girls have decided to make their own hair, the same style of the same colour, and skirts in harmonious colours, they are optically one, although they are all dressed differently.
- 2.Same colour, different Style
This bride has dressed her bridesmaids in mint green dresses – but they were allowed to choose the style that best suits them.
- 3.Top and Maxi skirt
In a way traditional, yet refreshingly different: the same garments and flowers for all girls. Maxi-skirts are ideal in the summer months and look great on almost every Figure-type.
- 4.Same colour, different materials
These girls wear only partially the same dresses, but are an absolute eyecatcher because they combine different materials of the same colour.
- 5.The colour-palette
These girls wear different clothes styles AND colours, and yet are building a unit. This is because the nude tones harmonize with each other and come from the same family. The bride ordered her bridesmaids to choose not only their dress colour, but also the materials:
- 6.One Style, many looks: Boho-chic
Very great: The Bridesmaids in tops in Gray tones and complementary-coloured skirts. At these bridesmaids the style is the same, everything else is completely different. We are a fan of it!
- 7.Patterns and Flower colours combined
Clever, clever – flowers and dresses form a unity of colour, although different lengths, styles and patterns have been combined.
- 8.Jumpsuit alarm
Oh lala … quite cheeky.
- 9.Fashionista Style
Why not combine a tulle skirt with shorts? THAT screams “fashion”.
- 10.Cool & Warm – with complementary colours
The clothes are all different! Why does it still work? Because all clothes are “cool” ground tones.
