Blush is in – it’s time to get on board! There are very few things that we adore more than a soft and subtle wedding day palette. The simplicity and elegance of blush tones has always been a personal favorite, but sometimes those delicate colors make me crave just a touch of something more! Kennedy Blue’s blush colored bridesmaid dresses are perfect for a soft palette, but for a fun and glitzy twist, we love the idea of adding peach and gold-toned accents to create a chic look that’s easy to fall for!
Your bridal party attire is the easiest way to showcase your palette and Kennedy Blue’s blush colored bridesmaid dresses are the perfect shade for that sweet, romantic feel! Not only is the color spot-on, but the soft chiffon fabric creates an airy and elegant feel that only adds to the romance. To compliment your ‘maids, Kennedy Blue’s collection of men’s ties are also available in blush so that you can coordinate your party for a look that’s perfectly pink!

When deciding on colors, the biggest challenge is determining how much of each is appropriate. Consider the 60/30/10 rule: 60% of a primary color (blush), 30% of a secondary color (peach), and 10% of an accent color (gold). It’s that simple! As girls, we totally understand the importance of accents (why is it so hard for guys to understand this concept?), but incorporating them isn’t always so easy. As weird as it sounds, consider a color’s personality. What comes to mind when you think of specific hues?
When I think of peach, I think of delicate items such as soft flowers and fabrics. For gold, shiny metals such as tableware, vases, and jewelry come to mind. With that in mind, peach can easily be added into blush and white bouquets or used to accent your tables with pretty peach napkins, table runners, or even backdrops and paper garlands. Adding gold is as simple as a bridesmaid’s necklace, gold silverware, and metallic jars and votives used as table centerpieces.
Blush and peach may not be your traditional combination, but there’s something so stunning and classic about the pinky-pair. It’s girly, stylish, and extremely chic, and because of that is why we are in love!

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 dress alterations.
Hollow-to-Hem: Hold the measuring tape vertically starting at the indent in your neck area between your collarbones and below your throat. Then, keeping the tape taught, bring the tape to the floor to meet your toes. This is your hollow-to-hem, or hollow-to-floor, measurement. The motion is similar to taking your height measurement.
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. Stand up straight and do not suck in when taking this measurement.
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. Depending on the fabric, a dress can be altered down up to 2 full sizes, but can be very difficult to let out as there is only about .5 inch of fabric to do so at the seams. Please note: Our bridal gown size chart is different than the bridesmaids sizing and is listed below.
