Wedding ideas by colour: pastel blue bridesmaid dresses

While blue remains a popular wedding colour for 2016, pastel shades are perhaps the most ‘on trend’.

Working well at both summer and winter weddings, powder blue co-ordinates perfectly with other colours – from pastel pinks and deeper hues of blue, to silver and gold. It’s also an excellent choice for bridesmaids, suiting most skin tones. Let’s take a look at some of our favourite pastel blue bridesmaid dresses…

Delicate and Dreamy

These floor-length bridesmaid dresses suit the outdoor, romantic vibe of this wedding perfectly. Pink and peach blooms add interest, as an alternative to carrying white flowers. As well as being a beautiful colour, this bride has chosen a style that flatters all her bridesmaids.

Adding the Brights

Powder blue can be accompanied by a brighter colour, so long as it doesn’t overpower. Here, a hint of vibrant orange in an otherwise soft bouquet looks stunning.

Brides in White

If you’re planning to wear a white gown and would like your bridesmaids to wear a pastel shade of blue, combine the two colours in your bouquet. This pretty arrangement links the bride to her maids, particularly with the addition of a blue ribbon. Ushers and the groom should follow the lead with a hint of blue in their buttonholes.

Power to the Pastels

Powder blue might be just one colour choice amongst a hue of pastel shades. As well as looking lovely, it gives your bridesmaids the opportunity to select the shade that best suits them. The key here is that all dresses co-ordinate, are the same length and made from the same fabric.

Oh for Ombre

Follow the ombre trend by choosing dresses in varying shades of blue, from a royal blue through to powder blue. It’s a fun alternative to choosing individual ombre dresses. Each bridesmaid then carries a simple white posy, while the bride can combine all shades in her bouquet.

The Modern Blues

For a more contemporary wedding, be brave with your blues and venture through the spectrum to green. It’s hard to imagine that these shades will co-ordinate but as there are five bridesmaids, the colour transition is gradual.

A Hint of Yellow

If your bridesmaids are wearing identical dresses, you can afford to be a little more daring with their flowers. Yellow is often introduced to blue and here, delicate daisies and yellow roses lift the prettiest of posies.

Don’t Forget… the Flowergirls

Choosing dresses for younger bridesmaids can be the highlight of your shopping trip! Powder blue is easy to introduce, either with a tulle skirt or perhaps a simple blue ribbon around a white dress.

Alternatively, for understated elegance (and a dress to wear again), we adore the ‘Violet’ dress from Monsoon.
