There are two types of brides: ones who love color, and ones who are intimidated by it. Considering that my tastes change on a monthly basis, I will openly admit my intimidation and envy for a brightly dressed wedding. Choosing a color for your 'maids to wear has got to be hard! (Brides, I feel for you.) Not only will that color set the tone for your entire day, but you'll be looking at these pictures for the rest of your lives--that's a huge commitment! However, by choosing a shade that's elegant and timeless, you can still get a pop of color without the worry of future regret. Navy bridesmaids dresses are the perfect choice. Classic, yet modern (seems a bit contradictory, no?), this shade of blue will leave you feeling confident in your choice and your ladies feeling beautiful.
It's honestly hard to find reasons not to love this color! It's universally flattering on every skin tone and works for any season and wedding style. With Kennedy Blue's collection of navy bridesmaids dresses, every girl is bound to find a style she'll adore. From soft chiffon to elegant lace, outfit your ladies in the same style or mix and match bridesmaid dresses to best suit each 'maid!
Kennedy Blue was perfectly designed for a mismatched look that's unique, elegant, and on-trend. With eight necklines and two different lengths, let each of your 'maids choose a chiffon gown that will best flatter her style and figure! Looking for lace?

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!
In my opinion, choosing your wedding colors is one of the hardest wedding decisions you’ll have to make. If you’re anything like me, you’re indecisive, overwhelmed by the amount of gorgeous color options, and your color preferences change on a weekly basis. How’s a girl to choose!?
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.
