A touch of purple adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to any wedding, and it's a popular choice for bridesmaid dresses. But finding a dress that's both flattering and modest can sometimes feel like a challenge. Don't worry, though! With a little planning and these tips, you can find the perfect modest purple bridesmaid dresses for your wedding party.

Consider the Style

  • Long and Flowing: A classic choice for a modest bridesmaid dress is a long and flowing gown. This style is flattering on all body types and can be easily dressed up or down depending on the formality of your wedding. Try our Evenings at Annesdale dress in lavender - an elegant option for your special day!
  • High Neckline: A high neckline adds a touch of sophistication to a bridesmaid dress and can be a great way to achieve a modest look. There are many different high necklines to choose from, so take your pick! The Sweep Me Off My Feet dress is a perfect choice!
  • Sleeves: Sleeves are another great way to add modesty to a bridesmaid dress. There are many different modest sleeve lengths to choose from. Take your dress to another level with puff sleeves or sleeves with darling ruffle detail. You can't go wrong with puff sleeves like the Ray of Sunshine dress!

Think About the Fabric

  • Chiffon: Chiffon is a popular fabric choice for bridesmaid dresses because it's soft, flowing, and lightweight. It's also a good option for modest dresses because it can drape nicely over the body.
  • Satin: Satin is a luxurious fabric that can add a touch of glamour to a bridesmaid dress. It's also a good option for modest dresses because it's not too clingy.
  • Jersey: Jersey is a knit fabric that is comfortable and easy to wear. It's a good option for modest bridesmaid dresses because it can be tailored to fit closely to the body without being revealing.

Don't Forget the Accessories

The right accessories can help to complete the look of your modest purple bridesmaid dresses. Here are a few tips:

  • Handbag: A small beaded clutch will perfectly complement your dress - the star of the show. 
  • Shoes: Heels or flats can both work with modest bridesmaid dresses. Just be sure to choose shoes that are comfortable enough to stand in for a long time. 
  • Hair & Accessories: Keep the hair simple and elegant. A classic updo or a braid would be a good choice for bridesmaids. Add a little touch of sparkle with some dainty hair clips or a beaded headband. 

With a little planning and effort, you can find the perfect modest purple bridesmaid dresses for your wedding party. Remember to consider the style, fabric, and fit of the dress, and don't forget to accessorize!
