It’s no secret that the season you’re choosing to tie the knot in will massively contribute to the colour palette you select for your big day. And while when you think of a colour palette, the decor might immediately come to mind - think flowers, table decor - and so on - your bridesmaid's dresses are the perfect opportunity to bring your vision together. 

If you’re stuck on which colour will be the perfect emblem for your special day, why not turn to trends? Opting for trending colours will help to give your wedding a contemporary and stylish air - if that’s what you’re into, of course. Otherwise, if keeping up with trends isn’t big on your to-do list, going for a popular hue right now will ensure you have an abundance of choices and dresses to choose from accessibly (never underestimate the high street when selecting your dream bridesmaid dresses). 

And, while bridal and wedding fashion is a whole thing in itself - colours trending within the wedding industry are hugely impacted by what we see on runways each season, so let’s turn to Vogue for some insight on trending hues for SS24. 

More specific to weddings, sage green continues to be a huge hit for 2024 weddings, followed by blush pink, champagne, yellow and peach - which can only be described as beautifully pastel and romantic - timeless shades for weddings. Brides are also drawing inspiration from fashion frontrunners with white (yes, white!), reds, blues and lilacs making their way into trends with Vogue naming “Porcelain White”, “Cherry Red”, “Sky Blue” and “Pastel Lilac” as wins this year. With white bridesmaid dresses, dusty blue, lilac and burgundy all popular tones for bridesmaids in 2024, it’s clear that weddings are a fashionable affair! 

We’re here to help you uncover all the latest bridesmaid colour trends for 2024, with our 12 favourites to ensure your best girls look the part on your big day.

Usually, you have an idea of your decor before you begin, but don't worry if not - the perfect dresses may help to define the overall colour palette of your wedding day, providing the inspiration you needed all along!

Sage green bridesmaid dresses

Sage is a stylish take on a classic bridesmaid shade as an inherently ethereal and wonderfully romantic hue. If you're looking to layer the colours of your wedding, sage is perfect to blend in with other tones and works wonderfully with a soft, pastel colour palette - think soft pinks, whites and lots of greenery in your florals to pull the look together. Basically, we can't get enough of sage! It's both elegant and natural, allowing you to tailor the look to your wedding style. Sage green isn't the only shade we're obsessed with for 2024 weddings as emerald green and forest green are also more popular than ever. For all the green inspo you need, check out our green bridesmaid dresses complete round-up.

Blush pink bridesmaid dresses

Blush pink is another classic, feminine colour that you can't go far wrong. You're sure to be able to find a style of dress in this pretty colour to keep every bridesmaid happy. It's a great colour to choose if you're looking to buy from the high street as the shops are always full of stunning dresses in shades of gorgeous pale hues. This beautiful shade is so versatile when pairing with flowers and accessories, from incorporating deep pinks or even a touch of peach to your flowers for a bolder pop - we're completely obsessed!

Champagne bridesmaid dresses

Going back to ss24 colour trends, “Liquid Gold” is taking the fashion industry by storm, but generally speaking, glimmering golds and statement metallics aren’t typically considered bridesmaid-esque for weddings. If you’re after something to make your bridesmaids glow during golden hour that is beautifully timeless and classic for weddings this year, champagne is your answer! Opt for gorgeous high-shine satin slip dresses with laid-back make-up and accessories with loose curls or elegant updos.

Black bridesmaid dresses

When it comes time to pick your bridesmaid colour palette, black is always an obvious choice often overlooked. It’s no secret that black looks incredible on everyone and likely makes them feel comfortable, too! We all know the power of an LBD (little black dress), so why shouldn’t this translate to weddings? Black bridesmaid dresses are perfect for inner-city weddings - think registry office vibe with a classy dinner in the city to follow. Otherwise, we love black bridesmaid dresses for gorgeous and upscale affairs at manor houses or black-tie weddings. To brighten up your bridesmaids, accessories are your best friend here! Splashes of silver will elevate your look entirely.

Dusty blue bridesmaid dresses

Dusty Blue is the bridal sister to the runway’s “Sky Blue” - offering a serene and sophisticated option for your bridal party. This soft, muted shade of blue strikes the perfect balance between elegance and tranquillity, making it a versatile choice for various wedding themes. For a cohesive look, consider mixing and matching different styles of dusty blue dresses, from flowing chiffon gowns to structured satin numbers, allowing each bridesmaid to express her personal style. The best thing about Dusty blue bridesmaid dresses is that they’re the perfect colour choice for weddings all year round! Where the natural light enhances their soft hue in the summer months, it evokes the serene beauty of snowy landscapes in the winter. Explore even more shades of blue bridesmaid dresses for more ideas.

Burnt orange/rust bridesmaid dresses

Burnt orange and rust are the vibrant, earthy tones taking over the bridal scene for 2024. Inspired by autumnal hues and the rich colours of nature, these shades bring warmth and depth to your bridal party's attire. Perfect for rustic, bohemian, or autumn weddings! Pair burnt orange and rust dresses with gold or bronze accessories to complement their warmth. For a harmonious look, opt for neutral or earth-toned floral arrangements.

Lilac bridesmaid dresses

Lilac bridesmaid dresses are making a charming comeback in 2024, in line with SS24 fashion trends. Lilac dresses shine in outdoor settings, where natural light brings out their soft, enchanting hue. While often associated with spring as a reflection of budding flowers and fresh greenery - why limit yourself to just one season? The best thing about lilac is how easy it is to accessorise. Silver or pearl jewellery enhances the cool tones of the dress, while soft, neutral makeup with hints of pink or purple ties the look together. Adding shades of lavender to your floral arrangements is also a must if lilac bridesmaid dresses have caught your eye!

Yellow bridesmaid dresses

Yellow is everywhere right now. Look at any high street store - you'll find them awash with all things sunshiny this season. It is the perfect colour for a summer wedding as it is so bright and fresh - there's something so frivolous and fun about yellow. And the best thing yet? There are so many shades of yellow to choose from! We love a pastel and buttery hue for a soft and romantic feel, but we also can't say no to a standout shade, especially during the summer months. Opt for a vibrant lemon or sunflower yellow - ideal for garden and outdoor weddings! Not fully acquainted with all the various shades of yellow? We've got you covered in our complete edit of the best yellow bridesmaid dresses

Peach bridesmaid dresses

It’s no surprise that peach is as popular as it is for weddings this year if Pantone is anything to go by. The colour experts named “Peach Fuzz” as 2024's colour of the year, and we’ve definitely seen a rise in this warm and inviting hue featuring in wedding colour palettes. Peach bridesmaid dresses are particularly stunning in outdoor settings, where natural light enhances their warm, glowing tones - why we love gold or rose gold jewellery to complement the warm undertones. Peach also pairs wonderfully with a variety of floral arrangements. Think bouquets filled with soft pinks, whites, and greenery to enhance the romantic feel or bolder, contrasting colours like deep burgundy or navy for a more dramatic look. If peach has caught your eye, there’s more where that came from with our complete edit of the best peach bridesmaid dresses

White bridesmaid dresses

White bridesmaid dresses are a stunning trend for 2024, perfectly aligning with the minimalist and chic aesthetic seen in recent fashion trends. And while you may be surprised to hear that - white typically being reserved for brides and only brides - they’re becoming increasingly popular! Because of their unconventionality, white bridesmaid dresses help to bring a fresh and elegant twist to any wedding. Choosing white for your bridesmaid dresses ensures a clean, chic and timeless aesthetic, perfect for brides looking to create a sophisticated and harmonious bridal party. But we totally understand if this one takes some getting used to.

Mismatched bridesmaid dresses

Mismatched bridesmaid dresses are a stylish and contemporary trend for 2024, perfectly aligning with the movement towards individuality and personal expression in bridal fashion. One of the advantages of mismatched bridesmaid dresses is the flexibility they offer. Brides can select a unifying element, such as a specific colour palette, fabric, or dress length, allowing each bridesmaid to choose a dress that flatters her body type and suits her taste. Happy bridal party = happy life! 

When planning mismatched bridesmaid dresses, select a colour family that complements your wedding theme. For example, shades of dusty blue, lilac, peach, and champagne can create a harmonious, soft look perfect for a romantic spring or summer wedding. Jewel tones like emerald, sapphire, and ruby can be a stunning combo for autumn and winter weddings. Beyond colour, also pay attention to texture and fabric. Combining materials like chiffon, satin, lace, and tulle can add depth and interest to the look, and exploring various necklines, sleeve lengths, and silhouettes can further personalise their outfits.

Burgandy bridesmaid dresses

Burgundy bridesmaid dresses are a timeless and sophisticated choice that remains a strong trend for 2024. This rich, deep shade exudes elegance and romance, making it an ideal colour for weddings in any season, though it particularly shines during autumn and winter. Whether you're planning a rustic vineyard wedding, a classic ballroom affair, or a chic urban celebration - burgundy bridesmaid dresses are perfect for creating a luxurious and intimate atmosphere. When accessorising burgundy gowns, soft, neutral makeup with warm undertones works beautifully, and a bold lip in a similar shade can create a striking and cohesive appearance.
