Bridesmaid Colour Trend: Ocean Hues

The tones at the top of our bridesmaid trend list right now? Ocean Hues. Think inky blues, deep emeral greens, sun-bleached pastels and alluring greys to embody the mysterious appeal of the ocean.

We’re drawing inspiration from this gorgeous Gold Coast bride tribe, snapped by Lucas & Co. We loved the contrast of subtle pastels and midnight tones and the mix of dress styles to suit each bridesmaid’s individual style.

The versatility of the ocean’s shades opens up a range of colours to try. Whether you’re taking advantage of a waterfront venue or an open property, your bridesmaids can choose from the broad spectrum (with your guidance of course!) Besties love pastels? Embrace the ivories and baby blues. Main maid loves a darker shade? Welcome the contrast against the faded tones. Best part of it all? Your bride tribe has a dress they can wear again, and again, and again!

We’ve rounded up an assortment of bridesmaid dresses in every style to inspire you and your girls…
