When it comes to bridesmaids, the first thing that comes to mind is their clothes. I’m sure you want to choose a nice outfit for them too. Let’s start with this question: “How should a bridesmaid dress be like?” Bridesmaid dresses must be the same color and model as each other. Bridesmaid dresses vary in size and color. You can make your choice based on this distinction when choosing an outfit for your bridesmaids. Also, in this article, I will specifically talk about velvet bridesmaid dresses. So, let’s explore these topics!
Velvet Bridesmaid Dress Types
I think the most logical way is to start by choosing the size of the bridesmaid dresses. First of all, there are a few criteria that you should pay attention to. So, do you know what to watch out for? When making this choice, I suggest you consider the wedding theme, the characteristics of the wedding venue, and the body types of the bridesmaids.
Velvet bridesmaid dresses are divided into three as mini, midi, and long.
Mini Velvet Bridesmaid Dress
First, I want to start with the mini velvet bridesmaid dresses. If I proceed based on the criteria that I mentioned, mini bridesmaid dresses may be suitable for weddings with a bohemian wedding theme. The beach or country garden will be suitable for the wedding venue because mini dresses have a sweeter look than long dresses. I think you can achieve this balance with a beach or country wedding.
Also, if there are short bridesmaids among your friends, you can choose mini velvet bridesmaid dresses. These types of dresses may make your friends look taller than they are. I especially love the light pink mini velvet bridesmaid dress in the first photo.
You can see the bride and her bridesmaids in the photo below. The bridesmaid’s dress on the far left can be an example of a classic short velvet bridesmaid dress.
Midi Velvet Bridesmaid Dress
Another velvet bridesmaid dress idea can be midi length dresses. Neither long nor short, these bridesmaid dresses can be suitable for many wedding types. If you choose a midi-length dress when you have a wedding in the ballroom, besides the glory of the venue, the bridesmaids’ outfits can add glory to your wedding.
If you are going to decide on the bridesmaid dresses according to the wedding theme, I am sure that the midi length velvet bridesmaid dresses will not let you down. I think midi length velvet bridesmaid dresses can accompany almost any wedding theme. I especially love the gray midi velvet bridesmaid dress. Since it can be used easily in daily life, it seems very logical to prefer it.
You can choose a classic, plain velvet dress, as you can see in the photos above. On the other hand, if you want to go beyond the classic and add some fun, you should check out the two models below! My favorite midi velvet bridesmaid dresses are already clear. I think you already understand. Yes, the following two dress models!
Long Velvet Bridesmaid Dresses
Long evening dresses with skirts reaching to the floor are among the most preferred wedding bridesmaid dresses. When choosing a long bridesmaid dress, you can start from the wedding venue. If you’re thinking of getting married in the ballroom or country garden, I suggest you take a look at the long velvet bridesmaid dresses.
When choosing dresses, you should also consider the body types of your bridesmaids. For example, if you have bridesmaids with wide hips, you can choose an A-cut bridesmaid dress that fits all body types instead of fish-cut models. The V-neck dresses in the first and second photos look very similar. One is a flatter model, while the other is a more shirred model.
Besides the classic models, I want to show a few different models. You can see different neckline velvet bridesmaid dresses in the photos below. I especially love the light pink dress in the second photo!
Another suggestion that came to my mind when I saw the photo below was to choose dresses with different necklines. You can follow a path in this way according to the dress preferences of your bridesmaids. If it were me, I would prefer the velvet bridesmaid dress with straps and shirring.
Also, velvet dresses with asymmetrical cutout one-shoulder neckline look very cool. However, I did not like the sleeve detail of the yellow dress. On the other hand, I LOVE the pink dress! It can be a very beautiful velvet bridesmaid dress with its sleeve detail, slit detail and simplicity.
Different Colors of Velvet Bridesmaid Dress
Velvet bridesmaid dresses can also be classified according to their color. Among the most preferred colors are green, burgundy, brown, and pink. So how can color choices be made? This is entirely up to you! But if you need a suggestion, I have an idea too. I’ve outlined my ideas for each color below.
Green Velvet Dress for Bridesmaids
First, let’s take a look at the green velvet bridesmaid dresses. As I mentioned in the first paragraph of the title, I have a suggestion about color preference. I think you can make changes in dress colors according to the wedding season and wedding venue.
For example, green and dark green velvet dresses will be very suitable for couples who want to have a country wedding. Especially in the spring months, when everywhere is covered with lush and colorful flowers, your bridesmaids can harmonize with their green dresses.
Blue Velvet Bridesmaid Dress
Secondly, blue velvet bridesmaid dresses are among the most preferred colors too. Mini, midi, long, whatever you choose, this color can look very cool and elegant. Also, since it is a dark color, it will be easy for the bride to stand out.
Let’s get to the main question. How can you decide the blue color according to the wedding theme, wedding season, or wedding venue? I think since blue is a color with a cooler undertone, it can be a suitable color option for winter weddings.
If your wedding theme is predominantly blue, you can choose blue for bridesmaid dresses to achieve a beautiful harmony. I especially love the two dresses in the first photo. If I was going to be a bridesmaid, I would definitely want to wear these dresses.
Burgundy Velvet Bridesmaid Dress
Another most preferred color is burgundy. I think that the combination of burgundy and velvet can create a very elegant and stylish result. If you’re going to have your wedding in winter and you like Christmas themes, I have an idea for you. If you prefer your wedding theme as Christmas, you can choose burgundy velvet bridesmaid dresses for your bridesmaids.
Also, burgundy velvet bridesmaid dresses bring your wedding dress to the fore. I am sure that your wedding dress, with its perfect whiteness, will dazzle by drawing attention among the burgundy colors.
Brick Color Velvet Dress for Bridesmaids
Brick color is very preferred especially in weddings held in autumn months. I think it can be a suitable color for autumn-themed, outdoor weddings.
In your bride bouquet, you should definitely use a brick-colored detail.
Pink Velvet Dress for Bridesmaids
Of course, one of the first colors that come to mind when talking about bridesmaid dresses is pink! Pink velvet bridesmaid dresses can be the choice of brides with their sweet and eye-catching look. Also, if you want to have a basic wedding, that’s the color you search for.
The two photos below feature two different pink velvet bridesmaid dresses. I love the strapless, low-cut dress in the first photo. In the second photo, there are two different dresses in satin and velvet. You can create a harmonious contrast by choosing bridesmaid dresses in different fabric types.
Yellow Velvet Bridesmaid Dress
When you see the headline, you might think that a yellow velvet bridesmaid dress might not be the best choice. There are some facts that I would like to point out in response to this thought. Yes, yellow velvet bridesmaid dresses are also an eye-catching and preferable option.
You can choose one of many different shades of yellow. It can also be a suitable dress color for autumn and spring weddings.
How to Style a Velvet Bridesmaid Dress
The question “How to wear velvet bridesmaid dresses?” is frequently asked in internet nowadays. So, this headline would be beneficial for the bride-to-be and her bridesmaids. After the suggestions of velvet bridesmaid dresses according to their style and color, I have some outfit ideas for you. Shoes and hairstyles also contain important details.
Another important issue after choosing a dress is shoes. It may be a good idea to leave the choice of shoes to the bridesmaids’ own choice in terms of adding a detail from themselves. But if you want to make the choice of shoes, I have a few outfit ideas.
First, I chose a velvet bridesmaid dress with a blue floral print. The fact that the velvet fabric type is self-patterned gave me a vintage feel. Since the dress is already very flashy, it is useful to choose the shoes quite simply. As for the color, I thought the gold color would be compatible with a dark blue velvet dress.
Secondly, I chose a green midi velvet dress. In addition to this, I preferred a more modern and currently fashionable model in the selection of shoes. Thinking that green and orange tones would be compatible, I chose an orange shoe. Maybe a gold or tan shoe can be chosen. It would be a good idea to create a contrast between the vintage feel of velvet and the modern look of the shoe.
Black color is always the savior, but I think it’s a risky choice for a bridesmaid dress. But if you have decided on black, there are two different ways to choose shoes. You can choose to add color first, but this can spoil the elegance. The second choice is to choose one of the silver and gold colors that classic complement the outfit.
My last dress suggestion is a pink midi velvet dress. As for my shoe preference, I used a black-gold color shoe. Actually, I was wondering if black would make this pink or even tan dress look bad. But I really like the shoes.
Now that you’ve chosen your bridesmaid dresses and shoes, it’s time for the hairstyle. Maybe you have decided on your own hairstyle after a lot of research. If you are still undecided or are still open to new suggestions, I suggest you take a look at the articles on Wedding Hairstyles for Short Hair and Wedding Hairstyles for Long Hair.
After you decide on your own hair, it’s time for the bridesmaids’ hairstyles. I don’t think there are any rules about hairstyles. But there are still a few things bridesmaids can watch out for. Since bridesmaids have a lot of duties and have to be with the same hair all day, it may be a good idea to choose a model that will not fall apart easily.
You can also ask your bridesmaids to add personalized detail to their outfits. They can add this to their hairstyles. They can get a stylish personalization with a hairpin that they can add to their hair.
Finally, in the video below, the bride-to-be shows us the velvet bridesmaid dresses of the bridesmaids. The dresses in 4 different models and in different shades of pink look very stylish. She also shows us the bridesmaids trying on the dresses at the end of the video.
