You want your bridesmaids to look beautiful, comfortable, and trendy in the summer. Whether you have just started browsing or are looking to refine your options, we have compiled a comprehensive guide to help you choose the best bridesmaids’ dresses for your summer wedding!
Best Colors for a Summer Bridesmaid Dress
Summer is the perfect season to be playful when it comes to colors. Don’t assume that bridesmaid attire is synonymous with dark colors and rich fabrics. For your summer wedding, you can opt for bright colors like purple, pink, yellow, or blue to add a pop of color.
Summer weddings often embrace soft and delicate hues that reflect the season's natural beauty. Pastel-colored bridesmaid dresses are a popular choice for their romantic and dreamy appeal. Colors like blush, sage green, or lavender will complement the sunny weather and make your besties look amazing in group photographs.
In the summer, neutral colors like champagne, ivory, and cream are starting to trend for bridesmaid dresses as well. Having a monochromatic look for your bridal party is another way to make a unique statement on your wedding day.
The Asher Lane offers five bridesmaid dresses in a champagne, neutral tone color.
Best Fabrics for a Summer Bridesmaid Dress
When it comes to summer bridesmaid dresses, you want to avoid heavy fabrics that will make your bridesmaids feel hot and uncomfortable. Instead, use breathable fabrics such as chiffon, crepe, or lace. These lightweight and airy fabrics will allow your bridesmaids to dance the night away without feeling weighed down.
Your bridesmaids can also feel more comfortable on the dance floor during your bridal party if you choose sheer fabrics such as organza, georgette, printed silk charmeuse, jersey, crepe, and viscose or polyesters that resemble a satin look.
The best example of an ideal summer bridesmaid dress would be our Zoe Satin Flutter Sleeve Bridesmaid Dress. This dress will keep your bridesmaids fresh and comfortable with its v-neck, fluttering sleeves, and luxe satin fabric.
Best Styles for a Summer Bridesmaid Dress
The maxi dress is a popular style for summer bridesmaid dresses and for a good reason. Maxi dresses are elegant and flowy and provide excellent coverage, making your bridesmaids feel comfortable and elegant. They also work well on any body type and come in different styles, colors, and patterns.
Another trend in summer bridesmaid dresses is the midi dress, which falls between the knee and ankle. This style is good for a casual wedding or an outdoor ceremony. Midi dresses can be paired with sandals, statement jewelry, and dainty hair accessories for a bohemian and carefree vibe.
