The sage green edit: Trending bridesmaids colours 2021

This year has been unbelievably up in the air for anyone planning a wedding. It’s still utterly chaotic and with rules and guidelines seeming to change almost by the day at this stage, it’s hard to plan anything, let alone the biggest day of your life!

One detail that won’t change though? The fact that your bridesmaids need to look and feel amazing in their dresses.

We’ve all heard the horror stories – The Little Bo Peep-esque bridesmaid dresses, the crazy amounts of meringue tulle, the awful headpieces – and we don’t want that for our bridesmaid besties. We want them feeling sexy, stunning and elegant while they bust a move next to us on the dancefloor! Which is why we’ve created a little trend forecast compilation for your big day: Sage green bridesmaid dresses!

Sage green is one of the most elegant trending wedding colour for 2021. Stylish, elegant and up to the minute, this is a colour we’re seeing everywhere this year, from interiors to fashion. Sage green is the calming colour we all needed in 2021. This is an extremely tranquil, soft shade of green and it’s the perfect colour for a vintage-inspired wedding,  as it creates a rustic and cosy feel and looks good against antique-inspired decorations, soft whites and will glow in the candlelight. Welcoming warm and relaxing, this is a trend we can see sticking around for a while!
