To expand on my last post, I’ve juxtaposed some bridesmaid dress pictures based on colour. All the shots are of groups with the bride, so you can get the over-all look, and I tried to find similar poses. All the pictures are great, and it’s hard to pick which looks better; one or many shades of colour?
At first I though it might depend on how formal the event is. The many-shades seem to be more casual affairs. The two glaring exceptions here would be the pinks, and to a slightly lesser extent the grays. The many-shade pink girls all look absolutely stunning and very formal. And I love how the many-shade gray ladies are all different body types and skin tones, one is pregnant(!), but they all look fantastic.
My vote is for the many-shades. They all still look like bridesmaids, dresses can be as formal or casual as you want, each girl feels comfortable and confident, and I think it adds personality to the shots. The one-shade dresses are all very nice, but when placed next to dresses that were probably not purchased from a bridal collection, I find they lack modernity and style. No matter how nice a bridesmaids dress you pick out, it will always scream “bridesmaid dress”. It’s a bridal joke that every bride thinks “my maid can shorten their dresses and wear them again”, but I can’t see myself wearing any of the one-shade dresses unless I had to. Okay, maybe the gray, that one is cute. But I can totally see myself in some of the many-shade reds, greens, and blues.
It definitely comes down to personal preference, there is no right answer, only opinions -so lets share! It’s election time Canada, who get’s your vote?
