Lately brides have been experimenting with what their bridesmaids are wearing in their wedding instead of the traditional solid color matching dresses, and we love it! With all the new trends though it can definitely be hard to decide what your favorite girls should wear. I wanted to take a close look at one my favorite new trends, printed bridesmaid dresses! I absolutely love the idea of adding patterns to bridesmaid dresses. If you are going with a more subdued color scheme for your big day, printed bridesmaid dresses can be a fun way to add a pop of color or an eye catching look. Hopefully looking closer at this new trend will help you decide what your ladies should wear.
Once you have picked out some awesome patterned dresses for your bridesmaids it can be tough to decide exactly how to accessorize. What I would recommend when picking accessory colors is to find ones that complement yet contrast your girls dresses. For example, if they wear really bright floral dresses than I would recommend picking a nude or pastel color that can be found in their dress. If your girls are wearing two toned stripes or polka dots with more subdued coloring I would suggest picking a fun bold and bright color for accessories. Whatever you chose be sure to have fun with it and I am sure your girls will look gorgeous on your wedding day.
FLORALS are a fun choice for a printed bridesmaid dress! With all of the flowers in the wedding it would be fun to pair your florals with your favorite ladies dresses.
MISTMATCHED printed bridesmaid dresses are a good way to go if you can't decide what your ladies should wear. This way they could pick between florals, dots, or stripes to add a fun pop to your wedding! You could always pick the same print, and then let them wear mismatched styles if you want!
