When you get engaged, there are a ton of things to do first - but #1 on your list is usually picking a date. It’s not easy, either, because unless you’ve been obsessing over one specific date for a while (because it’s particularly meaningful to the two of you), you legit have 365 days to choose from. We say a full 365, because given COVID’s impact on the industry, getting married on
day of the week is just fine👌. Do you want a rich jewel tone wedding in the fall or something icier for the winter? Is a dreamy lavender field driving your affinity for spring nuptials or are you drawn to livelier greens and safari shades of summer? Sometimes all it takes to zero in on your day are a few visual guides - and
Afarose, an online newcomer in the bridal and bridesmaid space, will get you there.
Literally, they do, because while we won’t assume that you’ll be dressed in white, it’s a big possibility/probability. It’s
color story that grounds a lot of your overall aesthetic, and as soon as they start walking down the aisle, your guests get the picture (in more ways than one!). So, if you’re still stumped on what season to go with for your wedding, let your bridesmaids inspire you - after all, they’ve probably done that for some time now, anyway. Afarose offers 42 colors of
bridesmaid dresses, to suit every season. They put together a few mood boards for us, highlighting bridesmaids as well as the rest of the wedding supporting cast (details like shoes, jewelry, flowers, cakes, tablescapes, etc.), and we’re loving how the colors lend themselves to certain seasonality.
P.S. I got married in the fall years ago, but I have to say, their summer looks have serious sway.
They have a wonderful and
constantly-refreshed set of new arrivals, so if the above mood boards have moved you towards a certain palette or seasonal vibe, just not your dresses yet,
take a look at what’s new.
We partnered with
Afarose to give you the deets on mood-board-inspiring bridesmaids dresses for every season. As always, thanks for supporting our sponsors!
