We recently published a post about the perfect wedding dresses for popular venues and thought a great follow up would be a post detailing a few of our favorite bridesmaids' dresses to fit a variety of venues.
Just as your venue will guide you in finding your dream wedding dress, it will also help you pick out your bridesmaids' dresses. Not only will you want the dresses to harmonize with the venue, but with your style as well. Look at patterns and prints, fabrics and colors to find gowns that express your wedding vibe.
Find your venue below and get the details on what kind of bridesmaid dresses fit the bill.
Think light, airy, soft, and romantic for a seaside celebration. Strapless designs with flowing skirts, eyelet lace, open backs, and soft colors like pastels, ocean blues, and shades of white are all great things to look for in a bridesmaid dress meant for a beach wedding.
Long gowns that are modest, but elegant are perfect for a church wedding. Look for designs that cover the shoulders, like cap and flutter sleeves, or pair the dresses with lace shrugs and boleros.
A city bridesmaid's dress should be chic and sleek. Think modern silhouettes, dramatic colors, and sophisticated fabrics like satin and silk. Sequins and beading add glamour.
It won't matter whether your maids wear boots or heels - they'll look lovely in neutral-toned dresses in any silhouette. When choosing fabric and length, consider where in the country your wedding will take place. A barn with wooden floors is acceptable for a long chiffon gown, but if your maids will be standing in a field of wildflowers, you might want to dress them in short tulle.
Forests are the perfect venue for dreamlike fairy tale style. Vintage lace, pretty pastels, and floral embellishments are just some of the elements to look for in a bridesmaid dress fit for the forest.
The garden is a glorious place to show off your bridesmaids dressed in botanical prints, whimsical lace, and floral embellishments. Any color found in the garden will look beautiful, from bold jewel tones to more modest neutrals.
