Why and How to Choose Orchid Color Bridesmaid Dresses

The Orchid Color

Orchid is a purple color of orchidaceae flower. Choosing this color can be a great pick because of its symbolic meaning. Did you know that in the Victorian Era it was custom to present the person that you love with exotic and rare flowers? The more unusual the flower was, the deeper your love was. And orchid was a very exotic flower and was used to present true love. Therefore, the orchid color becomes a symbol of love and affection. This color has many different shades and many different meanings. The pink shades represents innocence, femininity and grace, the purple shades represents respect and admiration, and the red shades represent courage and strength. And there is no better color to describe your bridesmaids: they are graceful, they respect and admire you, and they are the ones that give you strength.

The Silhouttle

Now that you’re sold on the orchid color, lets help you find the perfect orchid color bridesmaid dresses. It is a very big wedding fashion trend these days to have the bridesmaids wear different silhouettes and shades of one color. This is an amazing trend because it allows you to highlight each and every single bridesmaid's personality and style in a way that everyone feels comfortable. However, if you don’t get it right you can end up with a very inharmonious group of bridesmaids. So remember these tips below.

  • So don’t forget to choose one color and they can pick different shades of this color that blend well together. 

  • Do not forget to see if the styles match with your dress, you don’t want to be wearing something vintage and classic and your bridesmaid wear something really modern, it won’t look good together.

  • To have a cohesive look, have your bridesmaids get dresses in the same length, it looks very confuse when your bridesmaids wear different length dresses. 

  • You can change one to two things on the dresses, like they can have different necklines and colors, or different fabric and necklines and other options.
