The beauty of planning a wedding is selecting the look of the whole occasion. Brides and sometimes grooms collaborate in deciding the overall theme of the wedding and that includes the colors of the garments worn by the wedding party: the dresses worn by the bridesmaids and suits worn by the groomsmen. Most brides prefer a color coordinated look, while some actually like contrasting colors. Those who are seeking a vintage look might consider using one of two colors, olive and peach.
These not so new colors are rising in popularity. Bridesmaids’ dresses in these colors look stupendous when paired with groomsmen in tan, grey or brown. With the wide variety of materials to choose from, the color is only the first aspect of selecting a dress for the bridesmaids. Depending upon the fabrication, the look changes drastically. Satin dresses project a sexy, taunting image while chiffon projects an air of innocence. So depending on the time of day, whether it is an indoor or outdoor wedding, selecting the color and the fabrication can do wonders in setting the theme for the wedding.
Chiffon is appropriate for a daytime summer weddings, indoors or outdoors and beach weddings. Satin, taffeta and tissue faille are appropriate for night-time weddings. Organza is such a statement fabric and looks most appropriate when worn at night. Of the two colors, you may prefer peach for daytime, but olive can easily be worn during the day as well. Both colors peach and of course olive are beautiful traditional colors that are making a resurgence onto the fashion scene. They were always great colors and it’s about time for them regain popularity once again.
