Emerald Bridesmaid Dresses (The 2013 Pantone Color of the Year!)

Madewell Emerald Green Strapless Dress

The 2013 Pantone Color of the Year is Emerald!

I love this color and am excited to see more of it in the year to come. This vibrant hue is a great color for weddings and for bridesmaid dresses in particular. Emerald bridesmaid dresses add a bright and modern pop of color and the color is universally flattering. They also remind me of my most favorite emerald dress of all time – Kiera Knightley’s in Atonement.

Here are some great options for  your bridesmaids. The featured Madewell dress has a seriously flattering sweetheart neckline and a pretty bow at the waist. The ruching adds an unexpected detail.

Shoshanna‘s dresses are always a favorite and also work well for a variety of sizes and shapes. This dress has an interesting one-shoulder/cap sleeve combo and is draped from the hip.

Saja is a brand that makes modern, unfussy wedding dresses and what they call “social dresses.” This spaghetti strap dress has pretty pleating at the bodice.

Several J. Crew‘s popular bridesmaid dresses come in a pretty emerald chiffon,  including the Sinclair and Lucienne styles.


Looking for a long style? This dress from Halston has a gread one-shoulder ruched bodice and a sexy slit in the front.

What do you think of Pantone’s choice for color of the year? Is it something you would incorporate into your wedding theme?

    Hey There,
    I was wondering if there is a website that I can visit to look at purchasing the 6th dress down.
    Thanks Pip
