Blue has been a popular bridesmaid dress color choice for a while – but with so many shades to choose from, how do you decide? Of course, you could have your ‘maids each pick a dress in a different shade of blue to create a pretty palette, but if you just want to pick one shade, think about your venue. Lighter blue shades look best in the warmer months, at less formal weddings in outdoor settings like the beach or garden. Darker shades are ideal in colder months (though navy looks great year-round!) for more formal weddings at country clubs or ballrooms.

We’re loving all of the new bridesmaid dress options out there – so many new fabrics, necklines, and colors to choose from! While some bridal parties wear the exact same dress, we’re also noticing more and more groups of bridesmaids wearing dresses with differing necklines, or perhaps choosing their own dresses within the same color palette (we thought the three brand-new dresses above would make a pretty combination). That got us wondering about what your bridesmaids are doing. Take the poll below, and if you’re doing something completely different, let us know in the comments!

Posted by Jeffra on Nov 04, 2011

While we may have expected a slew of Pippa Middleton look-a-like designs for bridesmaid dresses, designers surprised us with a range of looks from short party dresses to floor-length gowns.  Even the selection of colors on the runway — muted, neutral tones (grey, brown) to bright eye-catching hues (neon green, sunny yellow) – were more fashion-forward than in years past.

Here’s a selection of some of our favorite looks, yes we do love one-shoulder necklines, that we think brides will love and bridesmaids will want to wear again.
