We’re super excited to share today’s shoot with you, put together by the wonderful Amy Nicole Photography and Violet Floral Design. This duo dreamed up a few different bridesmaid looks in monochrome palettes — a pink, a purple, and a green — with makeup, hair, and flowers to complement each one. While these are great ideas for bridesmaids, we also love that they’d work perfectly for a bride who’s open to some fun color for her own wedding look!

From the photographer, Amy Nicole Photography: Tricia Egan of Violet Floral Design and I envisioned a monochromatic shoot with three different color families to inspire some different bridesmaid looks + styles + approaches. We chose the color families Green shades, Purple shades and Peach/Pink shades and then selected a bridesmaid dress, hair and makeup looks, fresh florals, and hand painted canvas backgrounds (by us!) that all kept within each color family. Each model has a different style; Boho, Preppy and Vintage. See below for the details from each color.

Our Preppy Peach bridesmaid wore a Posy by Kirribilla gown in the style “Willa.” Her hair was done in a classic chic french twist with a fresh peony garnish, she wore Stella and Dot jewels, and she had fizzy peach cheeks, bright eye color and a light coral lip.
