6 Colours Bridesmaids Are Wearing This Season

By  | 

This winter season is the perfect time to introduce that little bit extra to your bridesmaid dresses. With the dark nights and twinkling lights, a flash of colour with a splash of embellishment is essential. Winter weddings are fabulous for a range of colours, with pastels appearing frosty and bold colours appearing rich.

Here is our essential guide to the 5 colours bridesmaids are wearing this season:


Purple is a wonderful colour and works well with all skin tones. With many variants, you will find the perfect shade for your bridesmaids. Rich, bold, chocolate box purples are very popular this season, and with the contrast of sparkle accessorised alongside, it is one of the perfect winter wedding colours. We love this beautiful dress with embellishment from Beautiful Day Brides in Derry/Londonderry.

Pastel Pink

Pastel pinks are so pretty all year but in winter they come into their own. Set against the harsh views of winter, whether it be an old stone church, falling leaves and bare trees or just a dull day, pastel pinks brighten, pop and flow in the most delicate and beautiful way. We adore this delicate pink dress from Amore Bridal in Derry/Londonderry.



A steel grey/blue is fabulous for your wintery big day. An exquisite colour that is rich and expensive to the eye, this shade will work on all skin tones and when dressed with a little bit of sparkle, becomes luxurious and regal, perfect for that special, elegant day. We love this beautiful dress from Ultimate Dresses in Dungiven.


Navy is one of the understated colours but one of the most elegant. Easily dressed up or left in simple elegance, navy and silk are a wonderful combination. Navy is also one of the most flattering colours which will suit all shapes and sizes. We love this stunning navy dress from Dream Weddings in Coleraine.


Vibrant, rich raspberry is an fun, bright flattering shade which will bring that splash of colour to your wedding. Not as harsh on some skin tones as red and wine, raspberry is that perfect in-between , especially for a Christmas wedding. We fell in love with this raspberry bridesmaid dress from She’s Fabulous in Coleraine.


Cool, yet warm and demure, greens are perfect bridesmaid attire. Whether you want rich forest greens or sage greens, this colour is the epitome of class and elegance for your special day. Set against a rose bouquet with ivy trailings, this is a perfect wedding party season colour. We fell in love with this dress from Monsoon, available online and on the High Street.
