Wondering how to ditch the predictable and go with something different? Though solid color or monochromatics are stunning on bridesmaids, check out what's happening on the bridal front in PLAIDS.  Yes, Fall brings us the muted colors found in tartans and plaids.  One of the best things about incorporating prints into your bridesmaid scheme is how you can pick up different colors and tie everything together with accessories, including bouquets. A few brave and ingenious brides are even mixing it up having the bridesmaid party sport different plaids entirely.  In addition, dresses in plaids are likely candidates for actual rewear after the wedding and not likely to be hidden in the back of a closet or eventually cut up to make throw pillows.
Believe it or not plaids and tartans have been used in winter and Scottish themed weddings for years.  Now  on trend, they can be worn any season of the year.  For my own Scottish themed wedding I was able to blend colors I didn't particularly like on their own for a wedding but had a lot of pizazz when combined in a tartan. The beauty of plaids is they can be the perfect backdrop for mixing colors and making the right accessories pop.
