Rainbow Bridesmaids Dresses: Rock the Look with Accessories

We’ve been fans of mismatched bridesmaid dresses for a long time, so we are absolutely in love with this idea that takes mismatched dresses a step further – outfit each of your bridesmaids in a different color of the rainbow!

If done right, this look can be pretty darn fabulous and it’s great for those who have trouble pinning down a specific color scheme. Not to mention, rainbows are a sign of hope and promise, so the symbolism is super sweet too!

If you are a little bit of an off-beat bride yourself, here are some rainbow attire examples to inspire you.

If the idea of going totally ROYGBIV is a bit too much for you, you could still do multicolored dresses like in this lovely wedding. As a side note, we love that the bride wore a floral print dress!

There are lots of ways you could incorporate this trend in a more subtle way too – have each of your bridesmaids wear a different colored sash or carry a different colored bouquet, etc.

  6. Love it! I’m waiting for a bride to want this theme! You could have so much fun with it 🙂

  7. Love this-the look is just so fun and happy!

  8. What does ROYGBIV stand for? I think I love the first one best. It’s beautiful. I LOVE the colored suspenders too- so sweet!

    • ROYGBIV = Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo Violet! It’s an acronym to help remember the colors of the rainbow 🙂

  9. I think it is hilarious that this is coming back. Rainbow weddings were a big thing in the late ’70’s / early 80’s when my parents got married – except that they tended to be pastel rainbows. My mom still complains that she would always get peach, and she hates how she looks in peach 🙂

  10. They were fantastic. I love rainbow colors because it makes your day lively. Perfect theme for bridesmaid dresses.

  11. omg it’s really ridiculously CUTE!

  12. I love the rainbow make-up above and the whole look is great!Thank you for inspiration!

  13. My friend is getting married and is in love with the dresses that each man is wearing a a different color suspender and the girls have rainbow eyeshadow. Can someone PLEASE let me know where we can find dresses like this?

  14. The rainbow bridesmaid dresses are bright. Stunning bridesmaid dresses.
