Every entourage wouldn’t be complete without the bridesmaids. Having her girl squad with her on her big day simply matters to every bride. They’re her ride-or-die besties who’ll always have her back—especially on her wedding day!
It’s only right for brides to spruce up their bridesmaids on such a special occasion. Here, we share seven ways they can style their bridal entourage in the chicest, most elegant way. Of course, they shouldn’t have to break the bank!
Planning a wedding? Here are 7 ways you can style your bridal entourage in the chicest, most elegant way.
Opt for One Color, Different Styles
One can never go wrong with a uniform entourage. Having one color for all the bridesmaid dresses is always a classic. It looks neat and put-together, but there’s always room for some creativity. To break the monotone, same-colored bridesmaid dresses can go in different styles. It’s a fresh styling take that catches any eye.
When styling their bride squad, brides should consider each individual’s body frame and type, and of course, their preference. Some may not be comfortable with an off-shoulder dress. Others may prefer an A-line silhouette. The best thing to do is to ask them directly for ideas.
Experiment with Different Hues
For those that want variety in their entourage style, they can opt to get their bridesmaids’ dresses of a single color but in different shades.
This is a common bridal entourage theme that doesn’t go out of style. It makes the entourage look unique but still meshed in a coordinated ambiance. Plus, it looks great in photos!
Some of the most popular hues we’ve seen lately are dusty rose, pastel blues, and rustic oranges. Each color may look bland and boring in the same shades. But in different hues, they just bring life to the bridal party.
Go Quirky Yet Feminine with Mismatched Florals
Still treading on the mismatched route, why not add prints this time? Florals on the bridal entourage are such a fresh and unique styling technique that brides should try. Try to avoid having uniform prints as these may look awkward in photos. Mismatched floral patterns are the way to go.
Brides may want to take note of the size of the florals and the patterns on them. Some flower prints may be associated with tropical themes. Unless you want a luau-themed wedding, you may want to skip those. Go for soft, small florals if you want to achieve a spring tea party wedding feel.
Get Satin Bridesmaid Robes
Don’t forget about the pre-ceremony outfits! The behind the scenes are always fun to memorialize, so brides should make sure to still dress their bridesmaids comfortably yet in style.
For their getting-ready look, bridesmaids can stay cozy in their elegant satin bridesmaid robes. Stick to the theme by going for the same color but in different hues. This will add dimension to the group, especially when they’re lining up beside each other in the photos.
Kimono-style bridal robes remain a fail-safe choice, but brides can also choose ones in a different style, depending on the wedding theme.
Get Cozy with Matching Lounge Sets
If robes are too cliché, bridesmaids may dress in matching lounge sets. Loungewear is all the rage these days, so why not take it to a wedding?
There are so many styles to choose from. Brides can opt for a satin-cami-and-shorts combo or a satin PJ set. Whatever they choose, either style can bring a fun and cheeky vibe to the bridal entourage in an instant.
Want something sexier? Bridesmaids can choose to wear an oversized button-down shirt and leave it at that. Take a cue from Peter Lindberg’s iconic Vogue photo from October 1988.
Add Unique Accents to Their Bouquets
The bouquet adds a ton of character to a bridal entourage’s look. With the right delicate touches, it can elevate a bridesmaid’s outfit with little effort.
For the minimalist bridal party, adding unique accents to their bouquets will do the trick. The possibilities are endless!
Brides can either lace their flowers with huge ribbons or flowing laces. For a mystical-themed wedding, brides can have them adorned with glitter or pearly accents to make them sparkle. They can even consider going for “hoop bouquets” for a unique industrial touch.
Use Wicker Bags as Bouquets
Still on the topic of bouquets, here’s a hack that every bridesmaid will love. Consider having wicker bags as bouquets! These are perfect for those who are throwing a beach or tropical-themed wedding. The trick is to add floral accents to the bags so they still serve their purpose.
Having bouquets as bags are super convenient for bridesmaids who need to bring some essentials during the ceremony. They can just forget about their clutches and carry their bouquet bags instead.
Although there are a lot of preferences to consider, brides don’t need to feel pressured to follow each one of their bridesmaid’s wishes.
Have Fun Styling!
Although there are a lot of preferences to consider, brides don’t need to feel pressured to follow each one of their bridesmaid’s wishes. After all, they’re the one who’s going to walk down the aisle. Their ride-or-die bride squad will accept whatever choice they’ll make. And if they know each other well enough, a bride will know what best suits her girlfriends spot-on.
