Gone are the days when Brides objected to anyone else in white, okay more like the Bridesmaids. Now we see more brides freely letting their bridesmaids enjoy the white angelic look especially when the color compliments the wedding color vision. Today’s post is all about the gorgeous bridesmaids in White dresses.

When choosing your bridesmaids to wear white just like you, a few things need to be kept in mind. Here are 5 stylying tips I have thought to share with you to be able to pull of the “Bridesmaids in White” look flawlessly.

1. Bridesmaids Dresses NOT Wedding Dresses

Let’s be honest, as a bride, you do not want any of those distant uncles confusing a bridesmaids for you, because they haven’t seen you since you were 10 and mummy sent them an invite. You want your bridesmaids to look amazing in a bridesmaids dress but not a wedding dress.

Because your bridesmaids would most likely be busy calming you down and making things run smoothly, an ideal bridesmaids dress is to be lighter, not overwhelmed with detailing and easier to work around with than what we commonly call a wedding dress.

2. Only Bridesmaids in White

Another way to pull of the white bridesmaids look flawlessly is for the bride to confidently wear a non white wedding dress herself leaving the white look just for the bridesmaids. We’ve talked about brides wearing non-white dresses in the past and seen how much this allows for a bride’s character and personality, here the addition is to switch things up by having the bridesmaids in white.

3. Mismatching Fun

Thirdly, when styling your bridesmaids in white, feel free to play around with the mismatching idea. Mismatching your bridesmaids dresses is one way to bring character to your wedding look especially when done right. My personal favorite way of mismatching is using the same length but different fabric, styles (strapless, halter tops, one strap, V-necks, etc) or even shoes.

4. Color Shading

The fourth tip we have is all about switching things up in regards to the color. You can consider playing with shades of white, such as off-white or champagne. This styling can easily give the “all white bridesmaids” look a more chic and modern look.

5. Re-wearable Little White Dresses

Lastly, if you are a lover of a good bargain, then you would want to make your bridesmaids happy by choosing a white dress that they could totally wear after your wedding. Nothing sucks more for your bridesmaids than spending a lot of money on a dress that they would most likely never wear again.

Little black dresses have always been a thing but I think Little White dresses are making their own waves now. If your wedding theme fits, you might want to explore the Little White Dresses idea for your ladies.
