Purple Bridesmaid Dresses
A great color to mix and match.
Brides love the color purple for a number of reasons: It's a versatile shade that comes in a rainbow of its own hues, it's romantic, and it works for every season. So it's no wonder that purple bridesmaid dresses are a natural choice for the most important ladies in your life.
Let's first talk about how many different shades of purple bridesmaid dresses you can choose from. There's the brighter magenta and violets, which punch up a fall wedding or fit right with the summer sun. Then there's the pastels of lilac and lavender, whose soft and cooler tones fit are a match for spring or summer. And we of course can't forget the deeper plum and eggplant hues, that are a natural fit for colder-weather weddings in the fall or wintertime.
Of course, the wide array of purple shades isn't all you'll get to choose from: There are plenty of silhouettes and styles to choose from when it comes to purple bridesmaid dresses, too! Paper Crown by Lauren Conrad offers a romantic lace short-sleeve concoction, while designers like Donna Morgan and Monique Lhuillier offer more free-flowing details like a draped one-shoulder neckline and tiered asymmetrical hem.
Like other easy-to-match tones, purple bridesmaid dresses make it easy for your girls to choose their own dress. If you really want to have fun with this color, let them each choose a different shade of purple, for a fashion-forward ombré effect.
