From baby pink to powder blue and seafoam green… you’ll love these pretty pastel bridesmaid dresses.

Spring and summer weddings almost cry out for soft, delicate pastel shades of baby pink, powder blue, seafoam green and buttery yellow. If you’re looking to introduce these colours, make a start with beautiful blooms and pretty pastel bridesmaid dresses. Today we take a look at some lovely gowns for your maids.

In the Pink

Perhaps the most popular of the pastels, pink is easy to work with. When it comes to flowers, nature offers you just about every shade imaginable and bridesmaids are often happy to wear this flattering colour.

There is nothing prettier than pink! Choose a fabric that is as delicate as the shade.

Add glamour with a little lace. We love this Brigitte lace maxi dress, £139 from Monsoon.

These dresses are in a particularly gorgeous shade of ‘baby’ pink. Each bridesmaid chooses a similar hair style to highlight the elegant strapless design.

The Betty midi dress, £99 from Coast, offers a more contemporary style.

Blues and Greens

Soft shades of blue and green are another lovely choice, perhaps offering a slightly less feminine edge than pink and suiting most skin tones.

These delicate blue gowns are complemented by equally gentle gypsophila posies. Always remember not to overpower your dress colour with heavy flowers.

Green is elegant and stylish and looks great in both a country and city setting.

It can be tricky to set a specific shade of green, moving between a more minty hue and a delicate sage. Once you’ve found your chosen colour, carry a swatch with you wherever you go!

Sunshine Shades

Hues of yellow and peach just make us feel happy and, if you’re not keen on the vibrancy of a brighter yellow, they’re a great option.

Oh so pretty, these dresses look lovely. A white or ivory bodice with yellow skirt is a more gentle alternative to an ‘all yellow’ dress.

Of course, you can always introduce a brighter shade through flowers.

We love the Classsic Ballgown by Twobirds bridesmaid, available in an array of colours. The delicate peach is a definite favourite.

In the Mix

The beauty of pastel is that they co-ordinate so well together. If you want to add interest to your pastel wedding theme, consider choosing two shades… or more.

Why not stick to one colour but vary the depth of the shade? Here we see a mix of blues, each chosen to suit the skin tone and hair colour of the bridesmaid.

Green and pink are a lovely combination, particularly when the two shades meet so naturally in flowers.

Peach and blue are a match made in wedding heaven.

You might decide to introduce the whole pastel spectrum. The key is to ensure you choose the same depth of shade throughout.

If you’re mixing up the dresses, mix up the posies too! We love these identical blooms tied with different coloured ribbons.

Carry the theme throughout your wedding, using every shade in your cake. Macarons are a great idea here.
