Majestic in Mauve Bridesmaid Dresses

One of our favorite new trends is mauve bridesmaid dresses! A little bit pink, a little bit purple, these pale hues have a gray undertone. Shades of mauve are a soft and romantic, but they bring a little intrigue at the same time.It’s a great wedding color year-round because it’s both light and cool. Mauve bridesmaid dresses are also complementary with many other colors of the skies. Pair it with navies or grays for a supernova of a look. Or, go stay in the purple family for a sweet and elegant moment.

Seeking the Twilight with Navy Bridesmaid Dresses

Navy blue is a no-fail wedding color. It’s deep, elegant and classic, but never boring. Your bridesmaids will love dancing the night away in navy dresses that complement all the stars in the night sky. It’s also a great formal color that can be re-worn for other events. (Find more advice on how to re-wear a bridesmaid dress here!) Keep the galaxy theme going with sparkling jewelry in gold or silver, or even a sparkly belt — we’ll call it Orion’s Belt.

Go Ultra-Violet in Deep Purple Bridesmaid Dresses 

Visit darkest depths with deep purple shades for your bridesmaid dresses. Dark purples, like plum, aubergine and eggplant bring all the drama. Depending on preference, you can aim for purple shades with a redder undertone, like plum or mulberry, or go for a cooler purple like eggplant or amethyst. Not only can these shades look really pretty together, but they also play well with clusters of navy, mauve or gold. Whatever you choose, pack in all the beauty of the universe with deep mystical purple tones!

Get Golden Glows from Yellow Bridesmaid Dresses

If you look to the center of the Milky Way, the light appears to have a yellowish tinge, which is why gold bridesmaid dresses are a spectacular addition to this celestial color palette. Golden colors demand attention, but they still give off a sense of fun and wonder. We’re loving gold bridesmaid dresses for spring and summer weddings; the bright color makes us look forward to sunny days. But, if you’re diggin’ yellow for fall, check out Aura by Brideside’s ‘Citrine’; it’s the perfect mustard color. Whichever shade you chose, be happy! Yellow bridesmaid dresses are really heating up.

There are lots of ways to wear gray bridesmaid dresses; try velvet for some added sheen or a fitted silhouette for a contemporary feel. If you’re missing bright colors, have fun with your bouquets!
