Velvet bridesmaid dresses are stylish, elegant, and gorgeous, but how do they fit into your vision for your wedding? Consider a color scheme that compliments your velvet bridesmaid dress color, instead of looking for exact matches. Velvet bridesmaid dresses make a great backdrop for your wedding colors because they provide texture and depth. Consider some inspiration from real weddings for how to incorporate velvet into your wedding.

Nothing says luxury like a black tie wedding with vintage flare. Take notes from old Hollywood glamor for your wedding decor and the opulent feel of black velvet for your bridesmaid dresses. Keep your tables simple with clean white linens and dishes then add pops of black, gold accents, and antiques.

Choose Your Favorite Bridesmaid Dress Fabric

We highly recommend velvet if you are looking for dresses that will stand out, that your bridesmaids will want to wear again, and that can keep them warm during a fall or winter wedding. When you’re considering your bridesmaid dress fabric options you should think about the season, weather, venue, and theme of your wedding. Most bridesmaid dresses are made from chiffon but there are several other gorgeous options to choose from.

I don’t know how I feel about these. The velvet actually looks really nice with some of the dress cuts, but in others, I think it looks cheap.
