A Posy of Pastels

Thursday, January 6, 2011

If you're wearing a dainty pink hat and carrying a bouquet of delicate garden roses and ranunculus, why not dress your bridesmaids in pastel shades of pink and blue, too? I love the variety of shades this bride and her girls picked, from icy blues to gunmetal grays for blondes and pinks and peaches for freckled friends.

What do you think of this mix and match trend? Is it creative and contemporary, or will matching bridesmaids ultimately reign?

  4. I like mismatched. But I think eventually it will go back to matching. Classics never die.

    I'm drawn to the grey dress naturally. I don't know what my color issues are.

  6. ooo I love the mix and match. I have so many friends getting married and they have us in the same color.. which is fine and still looks beautiful. But I love the idea of having more of a "look" then specific colors

  7. If I could redo my wedding, I might be tempted to choose pastel dresses for my girls. In different shades of course. I love it!

  16. This is a very beautiful photo and design concept and it isn't an accident that it looks lovely all together. Very controlled choices. Color pallet, fabrication and styling. Deliberate and beautiful.

  24. I like this trend, i thing it gives bridesmaids the possibility to show a bit more about themselves (and i don't mean skin ;), their personality and personal style!
    Hope this trend is here to stay!

  27. You know, this must be by innate Type A-ness talking, but I think it's too much for me. The pics are gorgeous, of course, but if I were getting married again, I think I would choose a variety of shades from one color palette rather than a variety of pastels. And there you have it. The limit to my coolness. ;)
