Powder fresh shades to lighten up in

Pastel bridesmaid dresses for an April, May, or June wedding aren’t exactly novel, but we love them just the same for a perfectly springy palette. While some view these sweet, candy-colored shades as an expected choice for your bridesmaids (or worse, overly saccharine), powdery hues are truly timeless for a spring wedding and not at all boring thanks to their soft, feminine, and romantic feel.

Colorful without being bold, pastel hues have a serenity to them and are the perfect way to transition from cooler winter tones to splashy summer shades. While light pink, sky blue, mint green, lilac, and banana yellow err on the side of precious, they’re positively refreshing for a wedding despite being a little tricky to pull off with everyday pieces like a blazer, trousers, or jeans—especially if your bridesmaids are not accustomed to wearing color whatsoever. If you’re at all worried that your bridesmaids will look like Easter eggs in these cheerfully pallid tones, they most certainly won’t if you choose modern silhouettes with ultra-chic details.

For a minimalist look, pared-back slip dresses, sleek column gowns, and unadorned wrap dresses will feel fresh without being overly fanciful. Or, you can take your bridesmaids in a feminine direction with delicate flutter sleeves, soft ruffles, and lace trims—these accents are decidedly fresh and romantic. For a charming touch, seek out bow-tie straps, corset detailing, or floral prints in pastel hues. If you’re considering a floral print, you can go for a fully printed lineup of maids or embrace the mix-and-match trend and select a print or two as a sweet offset to solids.

When accessorizing pastel bridesmaid dresses, keep it simple and have your gals stick to skin-toned heels or flats. If you’re in the mood for something a bit more festive, have them swap for a metallic or glitter-flecked shoe, but be sure they stick to a minimal silhouette to keep the overall effect sophisticated.

If a pastel bridesmaid palette is for you, ahead, we’ve rounded up 27 options you and your bridesmaids will love.
