The color of cautionary cones, sweet citrus, and Cheetos, orange is a blend of yellow and red. Named for the fruit of the same shade, orange bridesmaid dresses are also the color of the robes of Pomona, the Roman goddess of fruitful abundance, often pictured with oranges and peaches. Orange bridesmaids dresses are friendly and social, creating a happy, positive vibe that will bring smiles to everyone’s faces.
Orange bridesmaid dresses will also look amazing next to a bride in either white or ivory. From soft peach, to apricot, tangerine to rust, coral, salmon, and pumpkin, there is an orange bridesmaid dress for every season. Try spicy, burnt orange and rust tones for fall, a bright firecracker orange for summer, and supple peach pastels for spring.
The bright hues of an orange bridesmaid dress will look stunning against darker skin tones. Pair orange shades with gold, and ivory, for something more traditional, or go with a complimentary shade from across the color wheel, like shades of blue or aqua for something more whimsical. Analogous hues of the big O, located adjacent to each other on the wheel, will create a stunning ombre effect. Just imagine a fiery lineup of bridesmaid in orange dresses in pictures, holding bouquets of sunflowers, or gerber daisies!
Simple unadorned orange bridesmaid dresses like the Dessy Social Bridesmaids 8151, with a gathered halter neckline and piping at the waist, are not overwhelmed, and the lack of embellishments lets the boisterous color speak for itself.
Or go all out with a deliciously peachy peplum orange bridesmaid dress like the Alfred Sung D687, beautifully constructed in dupioni silk with princess seams and a keyhole neckline.
All peaches and cream, the Christina Wu 22648 is an excellent choice, featuring a strapless, sweetheart bodice with a ruched waist and a high-low skirt to brighten everyone's spirit.
