A pastel wedding conveys a feeling of fun and vibrant playfulness that is ideal for spring and summer, and what better way to complete the perfect pastel wedding than with gorgeous lilac bridesmaid dresses. Lilac has consistently remained a popular colour for bridesmaid dresses for many years showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Trends come and go but if you’re looking for an elegant, feminine, whimsically romantic colour for your bridesmaid dresses that works with a pastel colour palette – lilac will tick all those boxes. In this blog we’ll be talking a bit more about lilac and pastel weddings before looking at Maids to Measure’s amazing collection of lilac dresses for you to choose from.

Why choose lilac bridesmaid dresses for your pastel wedding?

Lilac is one of the first colours most people think of when you say pastels, it’s light and delicate and holds its own amongst other bright colours. This makes it a great choice for an important feature of a wedding like the bridesmaid dresses. It is also a very versatile colour as it complements other pastel colours beautifully and works well in a pastel palette.

Especially with colours like peach and light shades of pink, mint greens, baby blues, and even other shades of purple like lavender and darker tones like plum. Pastels pair well with darker colours and are great for lifting deeper tones like if your venue features a dark wood.

With lilac bridesmaid dresses and your other pastels, you can strike a perfect balance between light and dark whilst capturing your personality and the light hearted, warm wedding you and your partner are going for. See our different lilac bridesmaid dress styles below to find the right dresses for your special day.

Our lilac bridesmaid dresses

Allegra satin tie shoulder dress

The Allegra is a new design from the Ego edit, which is part of our satin collection. It’s a sleek and contemporary lilac bridesmaid dress with a flattering square neckline, tie shoulders, and a shirred stretch back. You have the choice whether you want the tie shoulders to be tied to the top or back as well depending on you and your bridesmaids’ preferences. The dress is made from our high-quality matte satin which gives it just the right amount of sheen. Its medium weight makes it hang well without being too heavy or uncomfortable to wear.
