Ideas & Advice
Not a fan of a uniform look for your bridal party? Try these gorgeous colour combinations.
Having a coastal wedding celebration? A wash of sea greens, mint and blues will reflect your theme and venue beautifully. For a glamorous resort wedding, consider beaded or embellished designs. For a striking contrast, include dark red blooms in your bridesmaids' posies.

This is a colour combination that will never go out of style, especially if yours is in an elegant and sophisticated setting, like these colonial-style Singapore venues. Gold accents, like delicate earrings or matching bracelets, would complement this colour combination perfectly. This muted hue is a graceful and sophisticated option for your bridal party. To keep it from looking montonous, go for an ombre palette. For a more romantic, girlier touch, lean towards greys with a touch of warmth - like blush or almond.

Various textures also add visual interest. Opt for designs that don't scream "bridesmaid" and your girlfriends can wear them after the wedding, too.

For your maid of honour, you can also go with a lighter and matching cream or beige hue. Images: @jennypackham/Instagram and @jennyyoonyc/Instagram
