I have fallen in love with a wedding dress that is a gorgeous dark red. What would match for the bridesmaids? One of my bridesmaids is very pale with red hair so I’m not sure what colour would suit her in the first place. Any ideas?

Hmm.. a nice yellow, perhaps? Or a pale blue or aqua, like tiffany blue? That might look good with your bridesmaid with red hair!

I’d ask her what she thought. I have a friend with red hair who loves wearing red dresses! I think a deep red wouldn’t be bad though … I think that people think red hair looks bad with red the color because of the brightness of both. Deep red is probably rich enough to offset it.
But, like I said, I have a friend with red hair who loves wearing red and looks great in it! Now that I think about it . . . she was in a wedding with me and we wore cabernet red dresses with a champagne sash.

Hair color is irrelevant. You need to coordinate the dress color with their skin tones and people are either warm or cool toned. Meaning a warm toned person looks best in warm colors including gold (typical of redheads) while a cool toned person looks best in cool colors including silver. Your complexion has nothing to do with it either because you can have two people who have both very fair skin complexions who are different as night and day where their skin tones are concerned. The two colors that look best on both skin tones are black and turquoise. Most people don’t care for turquoise with red but black goes with anything and is frequently paired with red. Plus it has the potential to be worn again which practically every other color does not.

Thanks guys, very helpful info. One bridesmaid is super pale, the other is part Maori-so she has a rather dark skin tone 🙂 I will do more research and chat to them.

I would put them in off whites or champagnes if I were you. 🙂 A nice sort of switch to keep the focus on you, the way colored dresses highlight a white gown!

Yea I agree with the lighter colors, off white, white, champagne, ivory. Something of that sort.

I want to wear red and will have my maids in off-white or ivory, though yellow and aqua or tiffany blue sound amazing

A friend of mine wore red and her bridesmaids wore white/ivory. It was beautiful!
