I have seen weddings where the bridesmaids pick their own style of dress, in a givine color. My thought is choose a color that will flatter the women in the bridal party and to heck with the other considerations. A person can get too carried away takingt too many things into consideration. One other thing that should be considered for the women's dresses is cost, the attendants income should be considered.

I think this is no best color; the best color of your bridesmaid dress is the color matched your wedding color, your wedding theme, it is your big day.


And the most popular color of bridesmaid dresses include: Navy blue, dark blue, burgundy, wine and green.
