Wedding Wednesday: Neutral Bridesmaids Dresses are a Hot Trend

A recent, lovely recurring theme cropping up on wedding blogs across the net is the emergence of bridesmaids in subdued, neutral hues. Whether a bride opts to dress her girls in varying shades or one tone for a monochromatic look, this trend allows the ladies to create a soft, beautiful addition to the altar. Here are some of our favorite looks:

These ladies look lovely in this warm shade of ivory. Varying styles allow each bridesmaid to show off her personality, while the different textures on the dresses add interest both on the big day and in the photographs that will last for decades.

For a sophisticated take, turn to fall’s staple neutral slate gray. These bridesmaids look chic and effortlessly elegant in these flattering long gowns. With each maid in the same dress and tone, everything from hair to jewelry to accessories can be left up to the bridesmaids to select to suit her own tastes.

These ‘maids complement the blushing bride in, what else? Blush! The diaphanous gowns add whimsy while the lilac undertones of the blush add an extra layer of femininity.

These bridesmaids shine in stone colored chiffon, and add pops of color with jewel-toned shoes and colorful bouquets.

Another bunch of bridesmaids in blush, each maid has customized her look to reflect her style while staying in the same color family. The different shades and materials could lack cohesion otherwise, but the careful pairing of neutral shoes is both flattering (hello longer legs!) and unifying. The short length of every dress also helps tie all these different looks together.

Basing your bridesmaids’ dresses off of a neutral color palette is both beautiful and a lifesaver for your maids. Regardless of your love for fuchsia, your bridesmaids are the ones shelling out for a new gown to suit your Big Day desires; they’ll love you (even more than they already do) if you select, or let them pick, a dress in a classic neutral they’ll really wear again. Plus, it gives you the opportunity to gift fun, patterned or bright accessories to your bridesmaids, should you choose. And if your brides will be donning colorful jewelry for your wedding? Well we’ve got a post for that too!

Vintage Lace Maxidress Giveaway by Vintage Space

The beauty of a vintage piece is that it’s usually one of a kind. You have those glorious moments where someone says to you “amazing dress – where is it from?” and you get to disappoint them by saying “oh, it’s vintage” (i.e. you’ll never find one like it)!

The trouble with hunting down great vintage clothing in the age of the Internet though is that there’s actually too much. It’s hard to filter through the junk and find the gems – that’s when you need to seek out those high quality stores that only stock the best time and again, so you know where to head back to for your vintage fix.

Vintage Space is one of those stores.

With the clothing and accessories vivid with vintage nostalgia by Vintage Space, those of us who adore the look of a tiered, long skirt with layers of top lace falling whimsically down our back, chest and shoulders can keep our personal styles well-maintained. For that, Vintage Space, we thank you! 

This one-of-a-kind immaculately cut vintage lace dress will be part of a giveaway, made possible by Fashionising.com and Vintage Space.

Wear it with angelic innocence, or a big floppy hat for 70s hippy appeal.
