Bridesmaid Colors

I have a new favorite saying when I'm working at September's Bride,

"Every woman looks good in purple"

It's true!  Purple has become one of the hottest colors for bridesmaids for 2011, especially in eggplant and bordeaux.  What are the other popular colors for 2011 wedding parties to wear?

1.  Kelly Green
2.  Sunny Yellow
3.  Platinum
4.  Watermelon
5.  Black

We're often asked our advice for the use of color in bridal parties.  Here are my top tips...

1.  If you really want your bridesmaids to consider wearing their dress again, choose black, brown, platinum, red, or light pink.
2.  You can't go wrong with black tuxes for the men in your party.  YES, they definitely need to wear a jacket for the ceremony, and NO, they do not have to have their vests/ties match the bridesmaids.  They are not going to prom :)
