The so called coral color is a fantastic tone that takes its name from the beautiful reefs in low depth waters of the Caribbean.
Like it’s usually the case with other colors, there are slight variations of the tone, some a little more pink, some a bit shifted to orange.
All of them really put an exclamation point on the bridesmaids, but also creating a great opportunity for making the bridal wedding dress stand out.
If end up choosing coral bridesmaid dresses, I suggest you go with the brightest possible white for the bridal gown. Just check the spectacular contrast in the picture bellow.
Coral bridesmaid dresses come in various lengths, but they are a bit more common in knee-length. In that kind of length, it’s one of the best possible choices if you are having a beach wedding, or in a more general sense, to any outdoor event. It creates contrast over grass or sand, and brings natural colors related to the environment to the ceremony.
Longer coral bridesmaid dresses are simply stunning. Along with fuschia bridesmaid dresses, in my personal taste, are the two colors that best highlight your loved bridesmaids (as we always point out, please do not choose bridesmaid dresses longer than the bride’s dress).
Coral bridesmaid dresses can be used along with a wide variety of bridal gowns. Addressing one of the most frequent questions we get, some of them can truly be consider grecian bridesmaid dresses (check the image bellow). Of course, in this case they are great to used with a grecian wedding dress for the bride. Key point here are: one shoulder, column shaped, high waistline.
Here’s another variation with less of the grecian theme, and no shoulders.
You will also find traditional style bridesmaid dresses in coral that really look terrific.
My only really strong recommendation with the color is what I stated above, if you are thinking about coral bridesmaid dresses, you should stick with the whitest possible white for the wedding gown. The key point is always put the emphasis on the bride.
