The Top Bridesmaid Dress Colours of 2022
Choosing a bridesmaid dress colour can be overwhelming. You want to pick the perfect shade that will compliment you and make your bridesmaids happy! Once you have your overall wedding colour palette chosen, it will help narrow down your choices! But here are some great options from trending dress colours we expect to see in 2022:
Emerald Bridesmaid Dresses
Emerald is one of those colours that seems to be nearly universally flattering! It’s a more “neutral” shade but its deep jewel-toned hue makes it feel extremely luxurious and sophisticated. Just picture how stunning the Claudia V Neck Bridesmaid Dress in Emerald Green would look at a ski lodge or an outdoor estate wedding!
Sage Bridesmaid Dresses
Sage is definitely coming back on to the wedding scene in 2021 and while often used for summer weddings, different shades of sage can be used for weddings of any season! From rustic barn weddings to nautical seaside affairs, your bridesmaids will love wearing this colour. While your maids where the Classic Multiway Infinity Dress in Light Sage you can also include pops of sage throughout your reception decor as well to really make it stand out!
Dusty Rose Bridesmaid Dresses
We absolutely love how Dusty Rose looks on bridesmaids in the Spring and Summer! The colour can be used for all types of wedding styles: modern, classic, romantic, whimsical, etc. It really is the perfect way to add a pop of colour to a fresh green and white palette. The Stephanie Off Shoulder Split Bridesmaids Dress in Dusty Rose is the perfect look for a garden party affair!
Black Bridesmaid Bridesmaid Dresses
We never met a black dress we didn’t love, and choosing black for your bridesmaid dresses is no exception! Black always looks posh and stylish, especially when you’re girls are standing next to you in your white wedding dress. Our Alice One Shoulder Bridesmaid Dress in Black is perfect for your girls if you’re hosting a black-tie formal wedding in a ballroom or art museum.
Choose Your Favourite Bridesmaid Dress Fabric
Let’s talk about dress fabric! At Model Chic Australia, we have several different fabric options to choose from. But what is the difference? How do I choose a fabric colour. Don’t worry, we want bridesmaid dress planning to be as simple as possible, so we’ve broken down our three popular fabric options:
Chiffon Bridesmaid Dresses
Chiffon is a classic and well-loved fabric for long formal dresses for bridesmaids. The fabric itself is very soft, typically only neds one layer, and looks amazing and cohesive in wedding photos. The Evelyn Chiffon Short Sleeved Bridesmaid Dress in Navy for instance, is one of our most popular chiffon dresses that can easily be worn by all of your bridesmaids!
Tulle Bridesmaid Dresses
Tulle is a very popular wedding and bridesmaid dress fabric! Tulle is considered to be extremely sheer so there are usually multiple layers on the dress. It’s considered to be very whimsical, flowy, and romantic! TheBailey Tulle Bridesmaid Dress in Plum is one of our favourites because the A-line skirt drapes the body in th emost beautiful way (and did we mention the Plum colour is gorgeous?!)
Velvet Bridesmaid Dresses
Velvet is a luxurious fabric that looks gorgeous on midi and long formal gowns. It is also typically worn during the colder months due to the heaviness of the fabric. A velvet bridesmaid dress like the Karla Velvet V Neck Formal Dress in Copper is perfect for a fall rustic wedding or formal indoor wedding where you want to keep everyone stylishly warm!
Find the Perfect Style or Mix and Match
There are so many styles to choose from when selecting your bridesmaid dresses, especially when it comes to necklines. You can choose a one shoulder, halter, v-neck, off-the-shoulder, etc. For the most cohesive and uniformed bridesmaid style, be sure that all of your bridesmaids have the same dress, colour, and neckline. However, if you’re looking to do something a little more unique, the multiway dress may just be the way to go!
Why the Multiway Dress May Be the Go-To Dress for 2022
Model Chic Australia’s multiway dresses, also known as infinity dresses, are convertible evening dresses for bridesmaids that can be tied in an infinite number of ways to create different neckline, making it a great way to make sure everyone i sin the same style and colour, while giving your bridesmaids the freedom to choose a necklien that makes them feel confortambe, confident, and beautiful! If one bridesmaid loves an asymmetrical style while another is more comfortable with sleeves and having their shoulders covered, everyone is happy!
