A bridesmaid dress doesn’t have to be dull and boring. New trends are constantly inspired by catwalk shows from all around the world and include everything from sparkly embellishments to floral prints, so be inspired by the trends we saw on the catwalks from the 2016 autumn/winter ready-to-wear collections…
Deep purple is a such beautiful colour and it is one of our favourite shades for autumn and winter weddings. It is romantic and moody and the perfect colour for a more formal wedding. We love the combination of white, dark green and wood textures with a pop of deep purple. Jenny Packham, Naeem Khan and Carolina Herrera included deep purple in their ready-to-wear collections this season and they definitely stood out on the catwalk!
Your bridesmaids will love wearing floral print dresses and they are so hip right now! You can pick long or short styles in a huge range of colours that will complement your wedding theme. We love the idea of floral for an autumn or winter wedding because blooms just scream wedding! Opt for a floral print in darker and deeper shades like blues, purples, maroons etc. We love the tea length styles seen at Oscar de la Renta and Lela Rose shows!
Red is a festive and passionate colour, so why not include it in your wedding colour palette! Dress your bridesmaids in a colour that matches the shade of your vibrant bouquet of red roses (they symbolise love and passion)! We adore Jenny Packham’s short lace red dress, Naeem Khan’s dramatic gown with cut-outs and a cape train, as well as Reem Acra’s Art Déco inspired lace and silk frock.
Yellow doesn't have to be reserved for summer or spring weddings, why not opt for a deeper shade of yellow for your bridesmaids. Vintage shades are popular at the moment, and your bridesmaids will create a fun contrast against your wedding gown. This is the perfect shade for a wintry destination wedding and combine it with bouquets in deep reds and maroons. We love these yellow gowns by Jenny Packham, Marissa Webb and Reem Acra.
Or if you want your bridesmaids to be your ‘something blue’, then be inspired by these beautiful looks from Jenny Packham, Marchesa and Reem Acra! Soft pastel blue doesnt have to just be for spring, we love it for autumn and winter weddings teamed with a dark maroon lip and bold brows.
