If you want to add glamour to your wedding, consider having your bridesmaids wear dresses with sequins. Your first thought might be that you don’t want your bridesmaids to outshine the bride. And you also might be thinking that sequins could take away from the elegant and tasteful look you want to achieve for your ceremony. Those certainly are legitimate concerns but with a few simple guidelines, you can definitely pull off having your bridesmaids sparkle!
Tips for Sequin Bridesmaids Dresses:
1. Choose a dress with sleeves.
2. Choose a neutral color.
3. Keep the style simple.
4. Consider mixing sequins with fabric, especially if using a color.
With sequins you have to be careful that your bridesmaids don’t look like they are going partying! Having them wear dresses with sleeves will really help in that regard. Sleeves with sequins creates a chic and tasteful overall look for your bridesmaids.
You may want to consider having your bridesmaids mix and match to have sequins only on the top or bottom. The look achieved by the bridesmaids in the first photo below is one that really makes sequins work to perfection. This is also a good choice if your bridesmaids are wearing sequins in a non-neutral color. It will help tone down the whole effect.
As shown in the second photo, pairing sequins with a tailored, short dress achieves instant sophistication. The simple, straight-lined skirt creates an elegant look.
Sequin bridesmaid dresses look best when they are in a neutral color — that is what makes them work so well. Choose beige, rose gold, gold, silver, pewter and other similar neutrals and you can’t go wrong. The bridesmaids below look amazing in their neutral, sequined dresses.
