Trend Edit: Green bridesmaid dresses
Bridesmaids' dresses in all the colours of the rainbow will always be popular but, this year, green bridesmaid dresses are edging out dusky pink as the stylish bride’s top choice. And we’re not just talking about one shade of green, there will be everything from the softest sage to deep dark green at this year’s most fashionable weddings.
Green is such a versatile colour we’re not surprised it’s proving so popular. For example, light pastel sage is ideal for springtime and reflects the soft light and the blossoming plants and flowers. Then there’s vibrant mint, which is a dream for the summer, while the rich jewel tones of dark green are a chic alternative to black for a smart city wedding or an ideal look for a winter celebration.
Find the perfect shape and shade...
All of our green bridesmaid dresses come in six different flattering silhouettes, which include classic spaghetti straps, angel sleeves, halter necks, cowl backs and more, all in the softest chiffon. So you should be able to find a design that suits the figure of every single one of your maids.
Not sure which green to go for? Take a look at our handy style guide below to find ‘The One’ or, alternatively, mix and match them to find your perfect combination…
Glorious dark green
Let’s start with beautiful dark green, one of our most popular shades. It makes a bold statement and is an ideal choice for a contemporary wedding. Why not try splashes of dark green mixed with elegant gold, bright ivory and pretty white flowers overflowing with green foliage?
Bella is a great choice in dark green and features a dainty blouson top with a stylish A-line skirt that’s flattering and easy to wear. At the back, the elegant slim straps lead to a neat row of covered buttons.
Eden is a cool one-shouldered style that has a chic contemporary feel. It’s a modern look that works beautifully with this luxurious deep shade.
All your maids will love Grecian-inspired Haven. The soft chiffon skirt is super comfortable and flows prettily to the floor, while the delicately draped straps flatter the arms.
Laila is a true classic and a great choice for a variety of different figures. The pleated bodice draws in the waist, creating a gorgeous silhouette, while at the back there’s a striking cowl design.
Rosa is one of our most popular dresses, as it offers both coverage and contemporary style. The floaty angel sleeves look beautiful and flatter both the arms and the shoulders. Then there’s the attractively dipped back and an easy to wear skirt that will keep your maids feeling comfortable and confident all day long.
Stunning Thea is a classic option, with its simple silhouette and understated beauty. The slim straps are a stylish and elegant look, while the clever ruching at the waist creates a great shape.
Mint green is a really versatile choice that can be styled in so many different ways. As part of your colour theme you can mix it in with an array of pretty pastel colours, think dusky pinks, peaches, lilacs and light yellows. Alternatively, try it with a hot pink accent colour or keep it simple with just shades of white and a dash of gold here and there.
This soft green is also great for a spring or summer wedding, as it’s such a bright joyful colour. Paired with small unstructured bouquets, with that ‘just picked from a meadow’ feel, it will look truly magical.
Don’t forget we also have plenty of stunning accessories for both you and your maids. For example, Eden looks great with a dainty crystal belt, which adds a lovely touch of sparkle at the waistline.
Haven’s soft, boho look is a great match for our sweet halo of delicate organza flowers.
To match Laila’s more classic feel you might like to treat each maid to an elegant sparkling hair comb instead.
While Rosa’s more boho vibe is perfect styled with soft tumbling locks and a few pretty scattered hairpins.
Thea’s simple classic look doesn’t need much adornment. A chic hair clip and barely-there make up will create a timeless traditional look that your maids will adore.
Oh-so delicate sage...
Lastly, we have soft sage green, a beautifully subtle choice. This shade’s muted tones look amazing mixed with pale peaches, pinks and whites for a colour theme that has a contemporary but classic feel.
It’s also a brilliant colour for mixing and matching. All our Infinite Collection colours have been carefully chosen to work together, and sage green looks stunning with our silver grey and blush pink shades.
Alternatively, combine it with mint and lavender for a warmer palette with a lively spring feel.
