“Probably the hardest [trend] to pull off well is to pull inspiration from a palette in nature and dress the girls in the range of colors,” Colgan notes.
“A great example of this is Lauren Santo Domingo’s bridesmaids; she was inspired by the colors of the sunset in Cartagena. But perhaps you are getting married in coastal Maine and you have the girls in shades of blues and greens–sending your bridesmaids paint chips or fabric swatches is key to successful execution of this.”
