Pale and Light Blue Bridesmaid Dresses

Just because you choose light blue bridesmaid dresses it doesn't mean your bridal party will fade into the background. In fact, quite the opposite. Picture, clear blue skies, crisp white bouquets and an outdoor wedding. Sounds like pure bliss doesn't it? It really is, as Maddie and Joel's stunning destination wedding can confirm.

Navy Blue Bridesmaid Dresses

We've said it before, and we'll say it again, Navy has to be the most universally flattering shade. It doesn't wash you out, it complements all colour schemes, and just like black, it has the power to hide a multitude of sins. So whether you are having a cosy winter wedding or a summer shindig. Midnight and Navy blue bridesmaid dresses could be the perfect colour choice for your bridesmaids.

Powder and Dusty Blue

Dusty and powder blue hues are a fresh take on pale blue. And, although the tone is muted, it is still striking. Perfect as a main colour or as an accent colour, looking exquisite with greys, whites, and even fresh greenery. Madeline and her team of bridesmaids absolutely nail this look at her fairytale wedding, and we haven't been able to stop thinking about it since.

Sky and Royal Blue

If you're looking for a vibrant shade of blue, royal blue bridesmaid dresses will definitely tick all your boxes. As the name suggests, it's elegant, sophisticated and will look fit for a princess when teamed with silver accessories. Real bride, Ashley teamed her cobalt blue bridesmaid dresses with colourful bouquets and we can't get enough! Recommended suppliers ReWritten Bridesmaids have also brought out a new shade called bluebell, which is every bit as pretty as the flower it was named after. 


One of the many popular wedding trends that have stood the test of time is following the 'something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue' tradition. What better way to incorporate something blue than with a fabulous array of blue bridesmaid dresses! We're equally onboard with blue wedding shoes, which could also represent your 'something new'. A girl can never have too many shoes, right?! Read our guide to finding the right pair, because, whilst we're all for style, comfort is key!
