Yellow is one of those colors that can easily intimidate a lot of people, as it can often be thought of as a bit too bold. But even though it’s considered a little challenging to pull off, the right shade of yellow can truly be quite flattering on every skin tone.
If you’re thinking of selecting yellow bridesmaid dresses, we’re definitely here for it. Yellow can be incorporated in a number of ways, blending sorbet shades with highly pigmented hues. Of course, the brightest neon versions might be alarming (especially for a wedding), but shades like pineapple, canary, and dandelion are all gorgeous options for bridesmaids.
Yellow is beyond stunning as a warm-weather option, whether for a wedding in the spring or summer. But the trick for pulling off yellow with ease is selecting the right shade for each individual bridesmaid’s complexion. For fair complexion, a pastel-like cream, banana, or daffodil is a lovely, soft complement. Medium or olive skin tones look gorgeous in warmer tones like honey, mustard, or butterscotch, while dark complexions appear radiant in a vibrant lemon or chartreuse. And whether you pick printed or solid dresses (a mix of both looks amazing in a bridal lineup, too!), your bridesmaids will find they can wear their yellow dress again for a myriad of occasions: as a wedding guest, for date night, or at a summer soiree.
With so many choices in shades, there are just as many options for silhouettes. From one-shoulder necklines to strapless in a range of lengths, you’re sure to find a yellow bridesmaid dress you and your bridesmaids will love. Read on for eight yellow bridesmaid dresses to inspire your cheerful wedding palette.
