The important thing to remember is that, it is YOUR day and you have asked these girls to be your bridesmaids for a reason. Whether they are your sisters, best friend or sister-in-law to be, remember they are your nearest and dearest and will help all they can to make your day memorable, no matter what they are wearing!

Now, onto the matter in hand, bridesmaids dresses, what’s in, what’s out and what we are loving!

Blue

The colour of the sky and the sea, blue is big this year. All shades of blue from light azure to darker ultramarine, turquoise, teal and aqua, all feature on bridesmaid dresses for 2012 and 2013.

Asymmetric skirts will add extra interest to a simple dress.

Neutral

Choosing to go for a neutral palette will not only mean you are top of the style stakes, but you have the freedom to accessorise with pretty much whatever colours you want! You can go to town on your flowers, jewellery and even shoes! Neutral is also a great choice if your bridesmaids have very different colourings.
