If you are looking for a perfect colour scheme for your summer wedding that is bright, bold and flattering for your bridesmaids then consider a cobalt blue colour scheme. This vibrant shade works beautifully with a range of other bold colours and looks stunning with sunflower bouquets. Cobalt blue bridesmaid dresses will also be ultra-flattering for your maids and works beautifully with a range of skin tones and hair colours.
We spoke to the team at Little Black Dress about this popoular bridesmaid shade:
"We’ve noticed that more brides are choosing to dress their bridesmaids in bold colours such as cobalt blue. Unlike other strong colours such as red, this rich blue makes a statement without being brash. It’s also a sure-fire winner with bridesmaids as its cool undertones complement every complexion, plus it’s way more flattering than your typical pastel shades. It’s also a great colour to really set off bridal white and make it pop!" explains Nathalie Gibbins, editor of occasion dresses destination LittleBlackDress.co.uk.
