In a recent poll on the Weddingbee boards that asked, “What color were your bridesmaid dresses?” the color blue took a majority of the votes, second only to purple with 18%. And we’re not exactly surprised. A peaceful, calming color, blue is found in a myriad of shades, each one more beautiful than the next. In fact, as reported by Netscape News, three global marketing firms conducted a worldwide survey and found blue to be the most popular color in the world. With that kind of title, how could we not shine the spotlight on this universally loved color?
When it comes to bridesmaid dresses, blue is an appealing color because of its versatility. While a deep midnight blue gown fits in with an elegant, formal wedding, a baby blue shade can achieve the opposite effect, fitting in nicely with a springtime or casual ceremony. These photos from Wedding Bridesmaid Blog, W Wedding Gowns, Weddingbee , and Bridesmaid Dresses Style & Fashion Guide showcase some of the many ways shades of blues can be utilized in a bridal party.
