by Jasmine Wang, Sponsored Post

Everything about your wedding day should be perfect – from your wedding dress to the suits to your bridesmaid dresses. A perfect wedding will allow you to get perfect photos to freeze the moment in time forever, to look back on in years to come.

Why have we mentioned the Tyndall effect in our title, you may ask? Well, the Tyndall effect is where the light gets scattered where there are particles in its way, creating bright beams of light that everyone notices – think of light beams in a forest. We want your bridesmaids to stand out like beams of light – shining throughout your day. To do this, they need some bold shades to catch people’s attention. Let’s take a look at some of our favorites that will make your bridesmaids stand out:

Coral Color Bridesmaid Dresses

The shade at the very top of our list is a beautiful coral. Coral is a bright orangy pink shade that grabs the attention of those who see it. It is colorful, arresting, and difficult to miss. One of the most popular wedding colors for the spring and summertime is coral, which has maintained this position for a while – with brides pairing this with bright florals.

From floral garden weddings to destination beach nuptials, this vibrant and vivid color is ideal for a variety of wedding venues. Due to its bright nature, coral often is linked to happiness and can boost the mood of all the wedding guests when they see it.

In recent years, coral has increased in popularity due to it gaining the award of Pantone’s Color of the Year 2019. After this, coral bridesmaid dresses hit the pages of bridal magazines, Pinterest pages, and influencer weddings.

The trend of using coral tones in your wedding has not slowed down since. One recent popular combination is a bright coral paired with a striking turquoise for beach weddings. If you are looking for a more muted color scheme, why not try and pair the shade with a blush pink or ivory?

Royal Blue Color Bridesmaid Dresses

Another shade that is bright and catches people’s attention is vibrant royal blue. Blue looks perfect in every season whether it is under sunny blue summer skies or clear winter moonlight. A royal blue is a tone that is both rich and regal and often makes us think of royal weddings – think Kate Middleton’s Sapphire engagement ring.

Royal blue looks perfect against the crisp white shade of your wedding dress and bridesmaids can carry white roses and flowers to blend the two tones. Not to mention the fact that it ticks the ‘something blue’ off your list.

When it comes to accents, a popular combination is a royal blue and gold – again, staying with the regal theme. These shades are complimentary on the shade wheel, meaning that they are the perfect combination as the bright gold stands out against the royal blue. Consider pairing royal blue bridesmaid dresses with gold shoes, or delicate gold jewelry.

One of the best-selling plus-size royal blue satin bridesmaid dresses on the Cetims website is the Celestine dress. The dress is well-made with precise stitching and clean lines, and the thick satin fabric stunningly reflects the light. The waist ruching on this dress is a particular highlight since it draws the waist in just the right amount without hugging it. The mermaid-style skirt cinches at the hips and then flows gracefully out to the floor, showcasing the body's contours. This dress is a truly timeless design for a truly timeless shade.

Burgundy Bridesmaid Dresses

A deeper color that still catches the attention at weddings is burgundy. The berry-hued, wine-inspired jewel tone works nicely with any fall or winter wedding, but it can also be used within some bold spring and summer color schemes.

Red shades are hard to get right – with some looking too bright and garish for an elegant and classy wedding day. Burgundy, however, strikes the balance between vibrancy and class. Whether the shade is created from heavy plush velvet, smooth satin, or airy chiffon, its rich, jewel tone appears wealthy and opulent.

Because they were expensive to produce, intense crimson and purple tones were initially reserved for royalty – and this is the quality shade that your bridesmaids deserve. Our favorite pairings with burgundy shades are pale blush pinks or a classic formal black – both of which would look stunning in wedding décor.

The Take-Away

Several different shades can make your bridesmaids shine on your special day. If you are concerned about them outshining you, do not worry as the bride and groom are always the center of attention. Your bridesmaids and groomsmen should look their best so that you can look back on amazing photos for years to come.
