Is it just us, or are we seeing the prettiest bridesmaid palettes this side of Blair Waldorf’s wedding? Seriously. 2020 is in full force, and we’re suckers for all of the mismatched palettes, playful prints and intricate accents out there… particularly where one Birdy Grey is concerned. You may know them as the source for bridesmaid dresses for under $100 or perhaps the convertible silhouettes that make everyone happy. But we know them for their abundance of color, sweet, color. Their site is festooned with choices from soft sage green to dark mauve, and I’ll admit friend, it’s a challenge to pick just one. Thank goodness for wedding season, am I right?!
Whether you’re drawn to the look of monochromatic solids or prefer the playful edge of mixed hues in the same color family, this online bridesmaid boutique has got the color game down to a science. The subtle gradient of shades from one to the next allows the mix to feel soft, romantic and honestly, meant to be. And if you still like the mismatched look but are Shawn Mendes + Camila Cabello level attracted to one color swatch in particular, you can vary the styles your gals wear.
So let’s get down to business. Not to defeat the huns (I wish), but to explore some of the prettiest bridesmaid palettes you’ll see in 2020 (okay, even better)!
Taupes and Blushes
This sort of palette lends itself well to nature weddings beneath a canopy of forest trees or next to teal blue waters. Soft and willowy, these muted spice tones are the real deal.
The Christina Convertible Dress is one airy tulle dream we’re drawn to in particular. With two streaming panels, you can style this dress in a strapless silhouette, a halter, a Grecian – heck, even a cap-sleeve!
Another style to bookmark is the Grace Convertible Dress. This beauty makes some major moves with its light chiffon material and sweeping skirt – hello, twirl power. Like Christina, this design has two front streamers that allow your gals to style the silhouette in all sorts of unique ways.
Roses, Mauves and Burgundies
These deeper berry tones are always a good idea for winery weddings. Against the soaring cypress trees and warm colored landscape, rose, mauve and burgundy bridesmaid dresses are the perfect juxtaposition.
Okay… We have to toot our own horn here and say this roundup of the prettiest bridesmaid palettes of 2020 is off to a strong start. Sorry, not sorry!
Another bridesmaid dress material we’ve been crushing on this year? Stretch mesh. And the Chicky Convertible Dress employs it oh-so-well. And as if the comfort factor wasn’t enough, this style even has subtle POCKETS. Rejoice, friend. Rejoice.
Mmkay we have to shed some light on the Spence Convertible Dress now. (Noticing a trend here? Options galore!) What we love about this off-the-shoulder gem is the built in boning and bra cups that help everything stay in place when uh Despacito hits the speakers. Don’t even play, you know you love that song! Style this as pictured, pull the sleeves over your shoulders to form a cap sleeve or polo up the spaghetti straps to create shoulder cutouts for extra support.
Navys, Light Greens, Dark Greens
These statement worthy hues are bold, confident and as eye-catchingly rich. We love the versatility of these beloved jewel tones, and we have a pretty good feeling you’re gonna walk away from this section saying me + u = 4ever.
If you’re worried about these deeper palettes being too daring, consider a more minimalist style. The Jan Dress for instance is basically THE treasure you’d find at the end of a quest for the relaxed elegance. Jan isn’t trying too hard, but boy, you won’t soon forget her. A refined scoop neck with thick straps dazzles on the front, while a plunging v-back adds dimension to the long, linear silhouette. We. love. this. dress.
Lack of cut-out bridesmaid dresses in the market? Birdy Grey says “hold my beer.” Lemme introduce you to the Elsye Dress, which has strategically placed sheer paneled cutouts at the smallest part of the waist to accentuate your body in all the right ways. It can be tough to find this fashion trend executed in such a tasteful way, and Birdy Grey checks all the right boxes.
Blues, Silvers, Light Grays
For those who love just a whisper of color, we have a feeling this section might speak to you. There’s a reason the gray to blue spectrum is referred to as cool tones. Soft, poetic and effortlessly graceful, these romantic hues are wholeheartedly worth exploring.
Speaking of gowns worth exploring, we need to take a moment to appreciate the beguiling Moni Convertible Dress with its plunging halter neckline and charming open back. But the best part just might be her hidden loops on the lower back and sides where you can convert the straps however you’d like. Who knew halters could be so adaptable?
We’re almost to the finish line of our grand tour of the prettiest bridesmaid palette of 2020, but we’d be remiss not to shout out the Jules Dress too. With delicate ruffles and exquisite chiffon fabric, this flattering A-line halter style is definitely a crowd pleaser. Even more so when you realize her pockets are iPhone friendly! A great option for taller bridesmaids, this extra long style is also designed with built in cups for extra support. Yes, please!
See how seamless it is approach bridesmaid fashion shopping as a one-stop shop for all your gals? Easy to do when the company is conscious of all body types, like Birdy Grey does so well. From the range of styles that accommodate extra lengths and larger cup sizes to their Curve collection which features 20 of their best-selling styles in true plus sizes (up to 3x), it’s near impossible to not find something for everyone. Did we mention BG even has a maternity ready collection? Or a line of groomsmen ties to coordinate with their color offerings? They truly think of everything!
Perhaps the biggest benefit of sourcing bridesmaid dresses from one place, even if you let your gals choose their own style, is that you don’t have to worry about the colors being too off. Let’s be real. One man’s dusty blue is another man’s French blue. So it can be hard to ensure a cohesive look without some low-key obsessive regulation. When you ask your bride tribe to buy from one company, you know the colors are going to have that je ne sais quoi quality that might be missing otherwise.
