How to Rock the Printed Bridesmaid Dress Trend

Prints and patterns are all the rage for bridesmaid dresses this year.  They can be bold, flirty, romantic, eccentric, casual, elegant – whatever fits your style!  If you’re not sure to have your girls rock the print trend, here are seven ways we suggest playing with colors and patterns to make a dramatic impression.

Make It Uniform

The easiest way to embrace prints is to have your girls all wear the same dress.  Try not to go too wild with the prints, though, or you could be overshadowed.  The light, muted floral print below accentuates the beauty of the bride’s dress rather than diluting it.

Mix and Match

If you want to go more bold with your print, try mixing and matching the dresses.  Just be sure to give your ladies a color family they should stick with for the best look.

Try a Mid-Length

Especially for destination weddings where the weather can be quite warm, mid-length dresses are an adorable pick.  With these you can go more bold with the print to make your bridesmaids stand out from the other wedding guests.

Same Pattern, Different Colors

We love this look!  It’s so romantic and soft.  Try to keep the colors subtle and in the same tone for a more ethereal feel.  The mix and match styles below are also a great complement.

Experiment with Unique Prints

Florals are incredibly popular, but there are a ton of other patterns you can play with.  Ombre, dotted, or dip-dyed are just a few.  This star pattern is gorgeous and catches the light in this photograph beautifully.

Go for a Printed Skirt

If a full print dress is too much for you, have your girls rock a patterned skirt instead.  Plus if you’re having a tropical wedding, your bridesmaids will thank you!

Embrace the Tropics

We can’t help but think about what works best for a destination wedding.  Tropical prints for your bridesmaids are to die for.  They complement the sun-drenched setting seamlessly.  A light peach hue like this one matches perfectly with any bridal gown as well.
