Not everybody is a pastel kind of a bride who daydreams of soft pinks, lilacs and blues – if you thrive on vibrant shades and you’re planning a colourful bright wedding, then these bridesmaid dresses from Dessy are perfect for you!
My darling clementine
First off we have the colour clementine, a warm orange that we think would look fabulous at a destination wedding or a wedding held in the height of summer. Bright shades are often shown off best under strong sunlight.
Think about azure blue skies, white sand and green palm trees as your backdrop. Wrist corsages look fabulous with a strapless dress, so accessorise your maids with tropical flowers like orchids. Decorate aisle-side chairs with the same flowers and have tropical petals sprinkled along the sand on the way leading to the celebrant.
With the scene set, your bridesmaids walk behind you dressed in a delicate georgette dress with a high-low hem detail. A flattering strapless ruched bodice is perfect for scorching days and the beauty of this dress is that it comes in two different styles, depending whether your maids want to wear cocktail length or something longer.
Fuchsia for a red carpet look
Give your bridesmaids a style like this to wear and they’ll love you forever! This glamorous gown can be worn to formal events over and over again. and in hot pink it’s going to suit both blondes, brunettes and those with a darker complexion.
This dress is perfect for a glitzy, sophisticated wedding theme. Match your décor to the dresses with mirrored table centres, decorative crystals and old-style candelabras providing romantic and atmospheric lighting.
If you’re making dress code black tie, this fuchsia dress will fit in perfectly. You want your maids to stand out as part of the bridal party and they will, for all the right reasons!
Retro glamour in emerald green
If you’ve chosen a retro theme for your wedding day and want a dress that’s a bit quirky with a nod to the 1960s, then this Alfred Sung cocktail dress Style D660 wouldn’t look out of place at a Mad Men-themed wedding day. Flattering and fitted, there’s a surprise when your bridesmaid turns around to show off a beautiful back finished with a bow. Plus, emerald green is a great colour at any time of year in any season.
Having a summer wedding? This Dessy Collection dress Style 6647 in Tahiti purple would work fabulously with other rainbow colours. Ring the changes by putting your maids in reds, yellows, greens, oranges in the same style of frock – it comes in over 80 different shades so it’s a cinch!
Have fun with your wedding décor too by adding sashes in the same rainbow colours to chairbacks. Maybe colour co-ordinate your bridesmaids’ bouquets – give one sunflowers to hold, another cornflowers, another green gerberas … you get the picture!
For a spring wedding you can’t really beat yellow. It brings all the promise of the warm and sunshine of the months to come. Of course, if you’re having a wedding in brights you can be as dazzling as you wish, but this Alfred Sung Style D574 dress in Daisy is bright without being overpowering.
Give your maids a bunch of spring flowers to carry and they’re all set. Carry through your theme with your table décor with napkins and table centres, and use a yellow ribbon to tie your favours.
Day to night turquoise
Want a bridesmaid dress that is going to take your girls through from day to night? Then Style D604 and D605 from Alfred Sung in this stunning Fusion turquoise will do just that. If you’re having an afternoon summer wedding in a marquee this blue would dazzle alongside country garden themed flowers in pinks, yellows and purples. Choose the cocktail style or the longer length or let your maids make up their minds.
