All weddings are not created equal. On top of your choice in venue, flowers, and wedding decorations, the color you want your bridesmaids to wear is, in fact, one of the most important factors to consider for the big day. Since your bridesmaids will be by your side for a majority of pictures, we’re positive you’ll want your bridesmaids to be picture perfect. Here, you can find six wedding color combinations that stand out from the traditional wedding colors to make your special day a memorable one.
The Gradient Gals
This colorful gradient makes the bride-to-be’s beautiful white gown pop in pictures. Each individual bridesmaid wears a contrasting color, allowing your bridesmaids to showcase their own individual style all the while matching cohesively with the rest of the girls.
Little Mrs. Sunshine

All White, All Right
Once considered taboo, it’s now more acceptable to have bridesmaids wear white as they walk down the aisle alongside the bride. The key here, is for the bride to stand out from the bridesmaids. The best way is to wear an eye-catching veil or a wedding dress with a long train. Or, some brides have even worn a neutral colored wedding dress like Ivory or Champagne while their bridesmaids wear white.

If you can’t decide on a specific color for your bridesmaid dresses, you don’t have to! Spring and summer serve as the perfect seasons to hold a pastel-themed wedding. As long as each bridesmaid wears a different shade of pastel, your bridal party will look effortlessly chic.
