Wedding ideas by colour: Metallic Bridesmaid Dresses

To ensure your bridesmaids stand out from the crowd, why not consider metallic gowns? Here we take a look at the best metallic colour trends and styles.

Metallics are on trend for 2016 – whether you choose to brave a shimmering wedding dress, adorn your venue in silver or gold or use subtle but shiny accessories. To ensure your bridesmaids stand out from the crowd, why not consider metallic gowns? Here we take a look at the best metallic colour trends and styles.

1. Rose Gold

If you’re aiming for the pinnacle of metallic trends… rose gold is it. It offers a romantic hint of pink, and looks oh-so-romantic.

We love these sequined dresses, glamorous for both winter and summer weddings. The length is important – a floor-length dress oozes style and elegance while a shorter dress would be more appropriate for an informal celebration or a beach wedding.

Add ivory and pink to your rose gold colour palette for an exquisite combination. While rose gold is perfectly suited to your adult bridesmaids, younger flower girls might prefer to wear pink.

For city style, opt for a two-piece outfit and take the skirt just above the knee.

There are various shades of rose gold. If you prefer, why not lean slightly more towards the ‘rose’ and away from the ‘gold’.

2. Copper

Copper is a dreamy choice for an autumn wedding, and looks wonderful in the great outdoors. These bridesmaids are stunning in their individual outfits, bringing the look together with identical bouquets.

3. Silver

If you’re a fan of the Great Gatsby style, silver is your friend. Look for silver sequins and Art Deco designs for the perfect dress.

Don’t forget, while you may have chosen metallics, you can still add in another colour. Silver looks pretty with pastels, and striking with black and white.

4. Mismatching

Who says you have to choose at all? ‘Mismatching’ is en vogue, so blend your metallics. If you’re opting for different colours, choose the same dress style and fabric to bring the look together.

These dresses co-ordinate with Art Deco style but introduce a range of patterns.

5. Gold

Forget about the copper and rose, and just go for it with glamorous gold, which is truly gorgeous in every way. Accessorise with brightly coloured posies for a summer wedding.
