Wherever you choose to get married, the location and venue likely has an influence on the style of wedding dress you choose. The same should go for the bridesmaid dresses—you want your girls to look their best alongside you and not only harmonize with your style, but the venue, too.
Outdoor settings like the mountains, a garden or a vineyard are great occasions to play with floral prints and fresh colors like sage, lilac or turmeric. Beachy locales call for softer hues like sea-foam green, powder blue and pink or white. Big cities like New York, London and Paris make the strongest case for black and opulent fabrics like satin and chiffon. A tropical setting is the ultimate occasion to go bright whether with cheerful tropical motifs or perky tangerine, fuchsia, and purple tones. For a ranch or lake, turquoise or warm colors like rust or marigold are beautiful.
Choosing a bridesmaid dress to suit the scene of your wedding will not only appear picture perfect in photos but is a fun way to get your maids in the spirit of your nuptials.
