Picking a dress that all of your 'maids will love, looks flattering on an array of body shapes and skin tones, and fits with your wedding aesthetic is a uniquely challenging experience that almost every bride will face. In fact, some brides even say finding a dress that's the perfect fit for all of their attendants is harder than finding their own dress for the big day. Luckily, there's one hue that's making a big splash in the world of bridesmaid dresses, and it's sure to please each and every one of your girls: lavender.
We know what you're thinking, winter brides: "My bridesmaids can't possible wear that pastel to my cold-weather nuptials." But with lavender available in a wide array of shades (everything from grey-toned violets, perfect for a winter wedding, to pink-toned shades ideal for warmer weather ceremonies), you'd be surprised at just how incredible the color is any time of year.
Plus, it's a great choice for just about every skin tone since the color can be warmer or cooler depending on fabrication. If your 'maids need something to warm up fair skin, try a softer fabric like chiffon, while tanner attendants should look at something in the silk or satin family.
