3 Neutral Azazie Bridesmaids Dresses

Go for a timeless, classic look for your wedding by having your bridal party wear neutral! If you want your color palette to be timeless, you can't go wrong with a subtle earth tone. Here are three of Azazie's favorite neutral colors for your bridesmaids dresses, along with some suggestions of colors that they can be matched with to add depth to a beautiful color palette!

Champagne

Champagne is a warm, buttery neutral with a soft creamy undertone. It makes for a wonderful addition for warming up a cool color palette, or lightening a darker color palette. Just like the bubbly beverage for which the color is named, Champagne will give your wedding a festive yet classy atmosphere.

Dresses: Dusty Rose, Champagne, Blushing Pink

Taupe

Taupe is a perfect sandy neutral with a slightly reddish undertone. Its warmth allows it to match particularly well with any pink/purple color palette, but can also serve as a stunning contrast to a cooler color palette. Taupe can easily give your wedding a beachy, summery feel, or can also create a dreamy, vintage atmosphere to your special day.

Hazelnut

Hazelnut is among the darkest of Azazie's neutrals with coppery brown undertones. Like Taupe, Hazelnut can be well matched with pinks and purples, however its cooler, metallic undertones allow it to seamlessly flow into blue/grey color palettes as well. Hazelnut is timeless and classic, and will add a luxe touch to your wedding.

Most Beautiful Flower and Color Combinations for your Wedding

Flowers are one of the most important parts of planning a wedding. They determine not only the decor, but the entire color scheme and feel of the event. The flowers you choose are often largely influenced by the season in which you have your wedding. In this blog post, FiftyFlowers offers some keen advice on flower arrangements and decor based on season and color. We also suggest which Azazie bridesmaid dresses would work best with each color scheme!

Fall

Deep citrus hues are the star of the show for this fall wedding. The orange Gladiolis contrasted with a neutral backdrop of dusty grey pampas grass strikes the perfect tone for an autumn wedding. The vased creamy stock and white Anemone are surprising and welcome bright touches to the otherwise deep and seasonal palette in the Roses, Pin-Cushion Proteas and Anemones.

Azazie Rust Color

Compliment your flowers with Rust colored bridesmaid dresses! This rich, brownish-red perfectly completes Fall's citrus-toned color palette. Rust gives your wedding a warm feeling, while also pulling out the deeper orange tones of Autumn.

Winter

Inspired by the design on their invitations, this winter-wedding couple created a pitch-perfect color scheme with raspberry stock and icy blue Tweedia. The variety of Peonies, Ranunculus, Scabiosa Pods and feathery Astilbe give the bridal bouquet and arrangements gorgeous texture and dimension. The deep velvety and creamy roses on the cake bring a deep, warm romantic aesthetic and counterbalance the bright peonies in the bridal bouquet in a beautiful way.

Azazie Cabernet and Dusty Rose

Match the multi-layered color scheme of your flowers by combining colors for your bridesmaids dresses! Cabernet is perfect for creating a warm and romantic feeling with its deep purple undertone. It seamlessly flows into Dusty Rose, which pulls out the soft, creamy tones of the flowers. Azazie customers love to combine these dress colors for winter weddings, but they can also both work well on their own.

Spring

We love to see this bright mix of Peonies, Garden Roses and Carnations complemented with hardy greenery and Baby’s Breath for an outdoor spring wedding. The cascading hand-tied bouquet with in-season pastels is romantic and free-spirited, while the more structured centerpieces lend a more formal aesthetic to the dinner and reception. The couple were wise to choose hardy flowers for their outdoor wedding: carnations are known for longevity and they opted for hardy greenery and Baby’s Breath, which weather the elements well.

Azazie Pearl Pink

Spring is all about florals and pastels, and Pearl Pink matches that perfectly! Unlike some of Azazie's other light pinks, Pearl Pink has some slightly peachier tones, which add warmth to the pink color palette. It is ideal for spring flowers because it beautifully compliments the bright pinks, but also goes with the creamy light flowers of the season. Pearl Pink works as a contrast to the hardy greens of spring as well.

Summer

We adore the rich color palate for these summer-wedding flowers. The burgundy smoke bush adds depth to the bouquet of creamy mums and blush garden roses. The minimal accents—bud vases for the guest book table and single stems of greenery at the table settings—accomplish both a glamorous and elegant feel. The combination of greenery, garden roses and mums on the cake reflects the bridal bouquet beautifully!

Azazie Dusty Sage

Dusty Sage is the ideal choice for summer bridesmaids dresses. This light, cool green tone pulls out the color of the elegant cream flowers, allowing the dark red and pink accents to stand out without being dominant. Wearing Dusty Sage in the summer time makes for a beautiful contrast to the hot weather, and highlights the luscious greenery that grows during the warm season.

Bridal Styles Through the Decades

Wedding dress styles have changed drastically in the past century. Decisions about color, length, and material have often reflected the prominent events and values of the times. Let’s travel through the 20th century to see the evolution of bridal styles!

Azazie Indie Bridal Gown

1910s- With World War I shaping the decade, wedding dresses of the 1900s did not stray from the modest, conservative styles of the past. Brides wore simple sleeves that covered the shoulders, as well as decorative, high-necked collars. Frills, ruffles, and lace were popular, creating a delicate, feminine, and romantic look. Additionally, the empire waistline was new, tightening just below the bust and flaring out into a long flowing skirt.

This Azazie style imitates the high-necked, conservative dresses of this era, creating a truly timeless look!

1920s- The Roaring ‘20s brought in some new, more risque styles. The women’s movement of the time rebelled against the corseted look that dominated the previous decades. A loose, undefined drop-waist became the fashion as well as a lower neckline. Gowns shifted from being floor-length gowns to having hems just below the knee, and many were sleeveless. During such a prosperous economic boom after the war, many brides liked to show off their wealth with dresses made of lace and silk.

With gorgeous scallop lacing, a deep v-neckline, and a drop waist, this Azazie style is reminicent of the '20s era. We even sell a birdcage veil to go with the old-time look!

1930s- The Great Depression era saw a return to romance and femininity for a wedding dress. Floor-length skirts and long trains were matched with a sleek silhouette to create a regal look of sophistication and elegance. Due to economic hardship, rayon was often used in lieu of silk because it was more affordable, but the desire to look luxurious lingered from the prosperous 1920s. Materials and styles remained limited and simple during the war effort of the 1940s.

These Azazie styles are inspired by the sophisticated and regal look of this time period.

1950s- Society flourished after World War II, and the ‘50s began a new era of the modern, working woman. Strapless dresses and sweetheart necklines became the style, along with wide, mid-calf skirts. Many wedding gowns were decorated with lace to celebrate femininity.

1960s- The '60’s was the era of mini skirts and gogo boots, a style that was reflected in the wedding dresses of the time. It was also fashionable to include beads or sequins in the dresses.

1970s- Immodesty was once again abandoned when the recession occurred in the 1970s. Long loose sleeves and square necklines were popular, matched with ruffled-hemlines and maxi skirts. Lace and chiffon dresses became the norm, creating an overall look of simplicity and practicality.

1980s- Fashion styles became flamboyant and distinctive in the ‘80s as wedding dresses began modeling puffy shoulder sleeves and large skirts. Princess Diana popularized this style in 1981, romanticizing the look as regal. The sweetheart neckline became classic.

1990s- Sleek, form-fitting styles were the most common in the final decade of the 20th century, contrasting that of the ‘80s. The off-the-shoulder sleeve became trendy, which eventually led to the strapless look of the 2000s.

As the 2010s gradually come to an end, we can reflect upon the decade fondly. There have been a wide array of popular styles, many that were reminiscent of styles from the past. Brides often have found it stylish to add colored accents to their white or off-white gowns, or even abandon the traditional white entirely. Azazie’s approach is to provide you the flexibility to choose whatever style works for you, so that you can feel like your best self on your wedding day. We cannot wait to see the bridal gowns from 2020's bridal fashion week come to life!

Q: How did you and your partner meet, and how did you know they were the one? 
Nick and I met early on in college. I knew he was the one when our first date was to the local college bar. Nick really splurged when he took me to the VIP section... LOL.

...
Q: How did he/she propose to you? 
Nick proposed to me on the beach while vacationing in the Caribbean. His family set up a photographer and a beach side dinner afterwards. During dinner we got to dance to live music and celebrate with family.

Q: Who was the most nervous on the big day? 
Definitely Nick. I spent most of the day preparing and getting ready so it was a good distraction from the nerves.

...
Q: If you could relive any moment during your wedding day what would it be? 
Our favorite moment was stealing some appetizers and running off to a hidden corner by ourselves for 10 minutes after the ceremony. We had an intimate moment taking it all in and shoving our faces with some food before the reception!

Q: Celebrating your big day means making tons of decisions. What was your favorite part of the planning experience? 
Our favorite part of the planning experience was doing it together. I was so happy that Nick was so involved in the decision making. It helped make the planning so much easier!

...
Q: What inspired you to choose your wedding colors/theme? 
Our inspiration came from our long time love of skiing. We knew that a winter wedding theme would be the perfect fit for us.

Q: How did you decide on your wedding venue? 
We decided on a wedding venue based on our love for the mountains. We knew we wanted a picturesque background and the Westin provided just that.

Q: Why did you choose Azazie to be a part of your special day? 
After doing a ton of research on bridesmaids dresses, I knew Azazie was going to be the perfect fit. I had brides in multiple different states and I knew it was going to be impossible to get everyone together! Azazie was so easy to navigate and it was a great way to provide all my bridesmaids with the same dress.

Q: What was your favorite part of your Azazie experience? 
My favorite part of my Azazie experience was ordering multiple different dresses to try on myself and ultimately picking the dress for the big day! I tried them all on and Nick had a little photo shoot with me so I could send all the images to my girls!
