Most girls suit blue. And it's a color that actually works for bridesmaids in spring, summer, and winter weddings. (Fall has different hues to provide of course and we'd choose oranges, browns, and reds in those days of the year).
It's like this old wedding rhyme:
"Something old, new things, something borrowed than one blue..." Which just implies that weddings and blue is going together ...
The thing about light blue like a color is that it does whisper elegance and glamor whilst eschewing overt prettiness. And it has a tendency to suit all complexions, that is always considered when choosing bridesmaid gowns.
Take a glance at these one-shouldered we've selected. They're all beautiful - and since they're by Dessy they are available in a variety of shades of blue - from delicate pastels right through to sophisticated midnight blues.
If you're using a destination wedding or your marriage under hot sunshine, you'll be able to choose bright blues - turquoises, azures, along with a jade blue. Bright colors can endure bright light without looking faded, although they'd look more out of place if you're using a country garden-style wedding.
Then again, you might have chosen to possess a more rustic theme; so choose more delicate shades of blue like cornflower - that will look beautiful with wildflowers and less formality.
Maybe you're using a city wedding or a marriage that's been locked in the early evening. Then your choices might veer towards elegant deep blues having a touch of shimmer - maybe such as these gowns from Dessy below.
Choose the best shade of blue for the maids too. Don't believe you have to dress all of them in one color - you are able to graduate the shades of blues to obtain an ombre effect as below. (Check out Dessy's Instagram feed for images of real girls wearing Dessy at real weddings.)
