A great palette sets the tone for your whole day, so if you haven't started thinking about your wedding colors for spring, it's time you do! Luckily, the Pantone Fashion Color Report was just recently released for spring 2015 and we are in love with the soft, cool hues they're featuring. From a soothing Lucite Green to a subtle Custard, the shades are refreshingly natural versus last spring's modern and vibrant selection. So the question is, how can you incorporate these lovely, light hues into your big day? We've created palettes inspired by these spring shades to gorgeously coordinate with our Kennedy Blue bridesmaid dresses for a look you'll absolutely love!
The Pantone Fashion Color Report really emphasizes the beauty of spring. From blossoming flowers, rainy days, and everything in-between, you can see that the inspiration of this spring collection comes from the organic, neutral hues that perfectly remind us of the season's natural elements.
We love the look of a deep blue with earthy accents. Consider pairing a Kennedy Blue bridesmaid dress in navy with floral and decorative accents of Pantone's Woodbine green. Keep the rest of the palette subtle by adding in rustic, muted shades of teal and mauve.
A deep purple is a color that will never go out of style and as we see lighter shades of it (lilac and lavender) hit the wedding scene, we can't help but love the pair. Dress your party in eggplant Kennedy Blue bridesmaid dresses, and accent their bouquets with touches of Pantone's Lavender Herb and even a muted pop of teal. The palette is classic, vibrant, and will definitely get people talking.
Perfect for an outdoor venue or intimate space, these rosy hues create a sweet, romantic palette. The soft shade of Kennedy Blue's blush with the warmth of Pantone's Marsala will look breathtaking when paired with natural ivory and green hues. Consider baby's breath and foliage in the bouquets, along with weathered, metallic accents in the silverware and centerpieces.
Your spring palette should feel lively and welcoming, so what better way to do that than with comforting shades of blue. Kennedy Blue's mint and Pantone's Lucite Green create a cool and refreshing mix that look stunning when accented with a deeper hue, such as Pantone's Classic Blue.
It's bright, it's vibrant--this combination perfectly reminds of us the warm summer days to come! Choose a classic and flattering color, like Kennedy Blue's claret, to outfit your girls and then add in pops of Pantone's Tangerine and Custard in your decor for a fun and eye-catching contrast.
We know how hard it is to choose just one, but we'd love to hear some of your favorites from the list! Do you prefer the earthy tones or the more eclectic? Leave us a comment below and let us know what you think!

As a soon-to-be bride, choosing my wedding flowers has been one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make – and honestly, I still haven’t decided!

To make the decision a bit easier on you, I’ve gathered some of my absolute favorite bridesmaid bouquets from some of our Kennedy Blue weddings that I know you’re going to love!
Styling your besties in mismatched bridesmaid dresses has been a huge trend for the past few years. And as popular as it still is, we’re slowly starting to see brides revert to having all of their girls dressed in the same style. So how do you decide what’s best for your own wedding? Here are some points to get you thinking about whether you should go the route of mismatched bridesmaid dresses or styling your girls in all the same look.
Romantic, elegant, and totally on-trend; we’re currently obsessing over Bordeaux bridesmaid dresses! Inspired by Marsala, Pantone’s 2016 color of the year, our newest color was created out of the need for a deep red with a romantic pink undertone. Literally, you guys, this color is everything we’ve ever dreamt of! Flattering on literally every skin tone, we think this is a color that your bridesmaids are easily going to fall in love with!
Taking Your Measurements
For the most accurate measurements, do not measure over your clothing. Your measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress. The measuring tape shouldn't be pulled too tight or have too much slack, and should always be parallel with the floor.
**Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so keep in mind that it's not uncommon to find yourself requiring alterations.
Bust size: Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).
Waist size: While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. Take the measurement where the natural crease happens in your side. This should be a few inches above your belly button.
Hip size: Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.
Choosing your correct size
Compare these three measurements to the Kennedy Blue size chart above. It is very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements. For example, if your bust measures 40.5" (size 12), your waist measures 31" (size 10) and your hips measure 41.5" (size 8), we advise that you order a size 12, and get your dress altered down to custom fit your body. Ordering anything smaller than a size 12 would not fit in the bust area. Please note: Our bridal gown size chart is different than the bridesmaids sizing and is listed below.
