17 bridesmaids' dresses in earthy tones

10 Jan 2022

Chic, versatile and well and truly on trend, earthy coloured bridesmaids' dresses are riding high in the fashion stakes

Sage greens, dusky pinks and burnt oranges are among the key hues being considered by trend-led brides for 2022 and beyond. Little Mistress has reported a 140% surge in Google searches for 'sage green bridesmaid dresses' since January, surpassed by an 180% rise in searches for 'dusty blue' gowns and a 160% increase in 'mauve' searches. 

Lisa Forde, founder of online stationery provider Tree of Hearts, says: “We’re seeing many couples choosing earthy, natural colour palettes and moving away from the whites and pastels of old."

When it comes to bridesmaids' dresses, muted earthy tones provide a complementing canvas for the bride, whatever colour she chooses to wear – whether that be crisp bridal white, show-stopping champagne or a nude-lined dress.

"Earthy tones add a really authentic and easy-going vibe to your big day and this is what couples are loving," says Evie Maskrey, owner of ethical bridalwear company Naya Bridal in Norfolk. 

Consider a uniform colour palette among your bridesmaids or an array of colours that contrast yet complement when placed side by side.

Here are 17 dresses to inspire you to get creative with colour for your wedding day.
