Tips for Styling Metallic Bridesmaid Dresses

Metallic dresses are all the rage these days, from the dance floor to bridal parties. This is a classy and stylish look that will make all your bridesmaids shine Worried about going too untraditional? Check out our tips below to master the metallic trend.




Set the Budget

Intricate beading and sequins can mean a little higher budget for bridesmaid dresses. The good news is that these dresses can stand on their own and you likely won’t need anything but a pair of stud earrings to complete the look.Talk to your bridesmaids about their budgets and consider helping out with hair and makeup instead of gifting them jewelry.

Really go Bold

Usually, when brides choose metallic bridesmaid dresses, they choose one of two colors: silver or gold. However, there are many different metallic colors to select. Don’t limit yourself or your bridal party to this basics After all, the point of going metallic is to stand out and shine. Consider your other color options like rose gold, dark steel, copper, navy or even black.

Different Necklines

Matching necklines will look coordinated and luxurious. However, if you are set on the mismatched look for your bridesmaids, choose dresses with different necklines. A variety of necklines with similar silhouettes, will still look chic but complimentary.

Mix it Up

Just like any other bridesmaid dress, you can use metallic dresses to mix and match. Pair a rose gold, sequin style with some blush dresses in chiffon and crepe. Not sure about all of the sparkle? Keep the metallic for your Maid of Honor and let her stand out .


With metallic dresses, accessories can make or break the outfit. The real star of the show is the sparkly dress, so you should keep the accessorizing to a minimum. Choose simple and understated jewelry, purses, and hairstyles, so they do not detract from the elegance of the dress.
