I’ll never grow tired of blush bridesmaid dresses, and according to the number of weddings we see with bridesmaids wearing them, neither will many of you! I personally think it’s the perfect shade for brides who are going for a sweet, romantic aesthetic, and it looks beautiful with every skin tone and hair color. We were so excited to learn about the new Wonder by Jenny Packham collection from David’s Bridal, because not only do they offer a gorgeous new assortment of styles for blush-loving gals, they also fit the high quality at an affordable price point standard that David’s Bridal is known and loved for. We asked a few sweet Florida readers to model some of our favorite styles for us, and our Blue Ribbon Vendor Elaine Palladino captured them to perfection so we could show you how lovely they are in today’s post!
There are really no “cons” to a mismatched bridal party look–every girl gets a dress she loves and that works with her body type, and it creates an interesting, layered look in your bridal party photos. There are a few ways to pull it off seamlessly:
1. Same color, fabrics, and length, different styles
2. Same color and fabrics, different lengths and styles
3. Same color, different fabrics, lengths, and styles
4. Same color and length, different fabrics and styles
As you can see in these photos, we went with option four, choosing all long dresses from the Wonder by Jenny Packham collection in “Petal.” The dresses come in 10 different colors, and are made of a variety of fabrics, including Chantilly lace and chiffon, so you can mix and match as much or as little as you’d like!
The Wonder by Jenny Packham collection is brand new–it just launched this season, and is available exclusively at David’s Bridal stores and on DavidsBridal.com. Along with six bridesmaid styles (that we pulled from for this shoot), the collection also includes nine bridal gowns, four mother of the bride dresses, two flower girl dresses, and accessories.
One of the best things about choosing David’s Bridal bridesmaid dresses is that with over 300 stores nationwide, it’s practically a guarantee that each and every one of your best gals will be able to visit a location and try on her dress in person to make sure it’ll be a perfect fit, no matter where she lives. Can’t figure out where to start your search? Use David’s Bridal’s Bridesmaid Dress Style Finder Tool to pull up all of the options that will be the best fit for your venue, color palette, and preferences, and then email the winning looks to your bridesmaids to weigh in on!
We’d love to know, which of these dresses is your favorite? I’m torn between those delicate lace sleeves and jeweled neckline!
