On the bridesmaid scene we have had many new trends emerge this season, by far one stands out from the bunch as a "Bride Favorite.'' The soft romantic and timeless trend of a champagne inspired bridal party allows a bride to create the ambiant look of a romantic day or allows the couple to uniquely showcase the beauty of pop colors against a neutral palate.
Two ways to approach this beautiful trend,
The first and most timeless version of this trend is the monocromatic champagne pallate. As pictured above, this look creates a cloud of soft hues. Some brides will choose to mix champagne, blush, soft mints and yellows to capture this idea. Even in the jewelry choices this trend can carry over to finalize the picture with pearls and rose gold accents.
Food for thought... Imagine a bouquet of red roses in a white room. The impact of even a small amount of color is highly exaggerated when set in front of a blank slate.This is the idea behind the second method. Brides use the soft blank slate of the dress and pop the color of shoes, flowers, jewelry, and nail color. For example; a pop color of burgundy against champagne can be paired with burgundy nails for the bridal party (and the bride) and set into purple, deep red, and deep burnt orange flower accents. The combination of these bold colors against the subtle back drop is breathtaking.
Lastly, do not fear champagne! Many people love this look and hesitate in the fear that the color will not complement or may" wash out" members of the bridal party. Here is our advice; designers have noticed the increase in the popularity of this color and are accomodating the trend. Chose your perfect shade against the most fair member of your party to be safe, and just as there is a shade of red lipstick for everyone-- there IS a champagne for everyone!
