Every wedding season is full of choices. From saying yes to the proposal to deciding on a venue, there are countless decisions to be made for your big day. While deciding on “the dress” may be the most important fashion-related ruling you make, choosing the color your girls are going to wear as they stand alongside you, comes in as a close second. How does one go about picking their wedding colors and then selecting the bridal party colors that everyone will love? The trend of mismatched dresses for your girls only adds to the decision, as selecting multiple colors that blend well for their girls is also becoming a bigger trend now. Thankfully, Kennedy Blue offers so many breathtaking, bold, and refined shades that there’s no shortage of crowd-pleasing options.
The best thing about our bridesmaid dresses is that they are available in a variety of captivating colors. While we’re still working to expand our color selection, you will still find a wide selection you will love. Your girls can all rock the same style of dress in the same color, the same color in different dresses, or whatever combination of hues you please. Check out our favorite selection of flattering Kennedy Blue hues below:
This rich, extravagant color is absolutely perfect for a fall or winter wedding. Eggplant is a deep purple tone that offers stylish sophistication, so it fits fabulously for a refined ballroom celebration or glamorous garden party wedding. An eggplant bridesmaid dress is ultra-unique, and it looks stunning on every complexion.
Because of the drama the color presents, our floor length Olivia gown looks gorgeous as an eggplant bridesmaid dress. It is the perfect canvas for the color, with its sweetheart bodice with ruching details and a simply gorgeous cascading skirt. Our Olivia gown will make each of your bridesmaids look like she belongs on the red carpet, while you still remain the star of the show, of course.
Crisp and classic, navy is a gorgeous choice for your bridesmaid dresses. The color looks extra sharp contrasted next to you in bright white or ivory, but since it is often treated as a neutral, it goes well with almost any color scheme. Navy is a color your girls will surely want to wear again. Plus, navy dresses look even better if you’re having a sweet seaside celebration.
If you’re looking for a gorgeous dress in navy that your maids will want to wear again and again, look no further than the gorgeous Harper dress. The all-over lace gown is an absolute knockout in navy, with a tasteful knee length and elegant keyhole back. A style your girls will definitely be able to wear again as a guest to a wedding, or any formal event.
Fresh and soft, going with a mint palette for your girls’ dresses is a decision that is sure to please them all. The color mint has really taken off in the wedding industry recently, and we love how feminine the shade is. The pretty pastel shade doesn’t wash out any skin tones and will surely do wonders for every one of your girls.
A favorite style of ours that is available in the sweet mint color is our Ashton dress. The lace illusion neckline and cap sleeves of the chiffon dress are so ladylike. This short chiffon style would be perfect for your ladies to wear during a vintage-inspired summer wedding.
Vibrant yet classy, going with teal bridesmaid dresses is a fun, fresh, and fashionable choice. While teal could work for any season, we love it most for a spring or summer wedding. The brightness of the shade reminds us of the tropics, so it’s especially great if you’re having a destination wedding somewhere like Hawaii.
One of our favorite Kennedy Blue numbers that comes in the beautiful teal shade is the Chloe dress. With a beautiful wrapped bodice and an elegant v-neck, the flowing dress accentuates the waist with a feminine sash. The lightness of the chiffon skirt that hits just above the knee is sure to dazzle in the teal shade.
There’s a reason the color black is the epitome of classic. The darkest of all colors points to old-school Audrey Hepburn, and we love how formal this bridesmaid dress color can be. The best part of the color is that it goes with everything, so your bridesmaids can rock accessories or bouquets in whatever accent color you dream of for your wedding day. The color black can work for any season as well, and it’s especially stunning for an evening wedding.
Sticking with the theme of Breakfast at Tiffany’s timeless beauty, our Stella gown is one of our favorite dresses that comes in black. Because black bridesmaid dresses are fairly formal, it is only fitting that the Stella gown is full-length. The elegant halter cross-over neckline is unique and fashion-forward, while a classic a-line skirt flatters every figure – plus it has pockets!

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.
