When it comes to bridesmaid dresses, pink is always in. But pink brings to mind a different shade to every person, are we talking sweet petal pink? Barbie fuchsia? Or something in-between? Once you get that ideal shade in mind, how do you know what it’s called or where to find it? And then there’s what shades are good for which season. For fall there are two main ways to swing on pink. On the brighter end of the spectrum are shades with names like watermelon or azalea. These are really peppy bright shades that totally pop. On the pale side of things are colors like rose or antique pink. Either way you go you want a shade that has warmer undertones unlike the cooler shades of summer (fuchsia) and spring (baby pink). So now you have two problems what pink and what style of dress? Fortunately the answer is easier than it seems.
First the easiest option for bridal dresses is David’s Bridal, select bridal party and search by color and select the pink that feels right for you. I like their watermelon, azalea or rose petal pink for fall. David’s Bridal is mainstream so that bridal parties who are coming in from out of town can go to their local store and try on dresses easily. They carry most dresses in ranges from 2 – 20+ which is awesome. Also they are a decent value and have a good online selection.
In the softer shade, rose petal pink, my favorite style is a full length empire waist spaghetti strap option. The empire waist flatters most figures and the detailing at the bust is really quite stunning. I like the soft lines that this dress offers and think they are accented in such a rich shade. The dress is $155 and includes a wrap. The length makes it suitable for evening ceremonies, the color makes it work for day time as well and the wrap covers you for churches that oppose to bare shoulders.
Perfect for the lunch or morning wedding is this adorable tea length dress in azalea. A simple A-line cut with a high waist works for most figures. To make it even more tempting it is a lovely $79.99.
For the most popping color, watermelon, this elegant strapless style is killer. I love the side drape and the little broach detail. This dress is not the easiest to wear for the busty gals, but most figures will find the smooth lines flattering. It is priced at $129 and is best for evening affairs.
This dress is absolutely stunning. In a lovely dusty rose with a crossover bust and graceful lines it should flatter many figures. Priced at $115 and in sizes 2-26 it is a pretty awesome find. I love the accent at the bust line. It works for day or night weddings with its length, and soft material.
If you want something different this asymmetrical hemline with a peek of tulle is just too awesome to pass up. pair that with the broach at the bust and it’s just killer. A little Barbie and those who aren’t girlie girls may hate you but this dress is totally fun. A steal at $68 and in sizes XS-4X why not style things up day or night?
