Slicker Than Your Average - African Bridesmaid Dresses

Bright, bold and statement making African bridesmaid dresses to totally match your bridesmaid's personalities and reflect your colourful preferences.

If you’re a bride living in Perth or around in different states in Australia, you probably would’ve had a bit of a hard time finding bridesmaid dresses for your bridesmaids – especially if you have colours or fabric patterns in mind to fit with your cultural requirements or preferences.  

We appreciate and love cultural customs and it is incredibly interesting to hear and see the different traditional elements interweave into modernity.

What we adore about African bridesmaids' attire is the bridal party's contrast to the bride, whose outfit is often bright, lively, and vivacious. This creates a fun and cheerful mood, perfect for celebrating an incredibly happy occasion as your wedding!

We rounded up some gorgeous African bridesmaid dresses from around the web to inspire you.

To start off with, we showcase bridesmaid dresses that we custom made for an African bride - Harriet, and her bridesmaids.

If you prefer a blue shade on the lighter side of the colour spectrum, baby blue, powder blue or light sky blue is always a popular and flattering choice. What's more, light blue looks amazing in all the fabric options we have available.

Chartreuse is an exceptionally gorgeous colour - a wonderful combination mix of green and yellow. This hue looks incredible against darker skin tones to create a complimentary contrast.
