Prom dress styles, colours and more!

The Big Event!

Few events in Milton Keynes are as worthy of actual excitement as the wedding day!

We all grew up with dreams of our favourite princess and hoping one day to get the crown.

Now it’s your time to accept that crown in a beautiful bridesmaid or junior/flower girl dress!   

Whether ample layers of satin or a simple elegant flowing affair, selecting the perfect bridesmaid dress is a task with so many choices.

We know the right bridesmaid dress for you!

With the right choices, the bridal dress of your dreams can become a reality.

At MK Bride, the possibilities are almost endless.  We source from the best designers and seamstresses in England, in all sorts of style, length, size, and colour.

The Style Counts!

Whether you are planning to wear a short dress for a summer wedding or a long bridesmaid dress, our experienced staff at MK Bride will help make the experience a fun one.

It is important to consider key factors such as your skin tone and hairstyle, as well as the theme of the wedding you are attending, when narrowing down your bridesmaid dress choices. Check out the style tips below for choosing your perfect bridesmaid dress.


Dresses for prom are crafted in every colour under the rainbow.

The colour and style of your prom dress might depend upon a theme, location, or the time of year that prom is held.

Remember to choose a dress in a colour that complements you and makes you feel good.

If you’re a redhead, you might select a prom dress in shades of green, blue, and purple, while blonds look great in reds, blues, pastels, and bold colours. 

Young women with dark hair can usually wear almost any colour.

Depending upon your skin tone, some pastels, brights, or jewel tones may well complement your colouring better than others.

Some people’s skin tone might get washed out by a vibrant colour such as a vibrant peach, golden hues like mandarine and sunrise yellow.  But these can also make someone else’s skin tone really glow.  We have alot of experience in judging these issues, so do please make an appointment now to come by and experiment with colours.

Neutral colours like ivory, tans, and browns can look beautiful on one skin tone and have the total opposite effect on others.

Here at MK Prom, we like to think outside of the box!

Dare to be different by trying colours you might not ordinarily wear.

We want to make sure you dress in the colour that makes you feel pretty!


When choosing your prom dress style, think about how you want your dress to fit.

If you like to dance a lot, you might want to choose an A-line prom dress that gives your legs plenty of room for movement and is styled with straps for support.

Not much for the dance floor?

Try a mermaid dress or a long sheath dress that fits the form from neckline to hem.

For busty body types or petite silhouettes, a prom dress with a corset feature that laces in the back is ideal for added support and style.

If a little more support is on your must-have list, try a short halter prom dress or a long prom dress with adjustable straps.

Curvy figures can appreciate the look and feel of a dress with an illusion-sweetheart neckline or cold-shoulder neckline.

A strapless prom dress with removable straps is a versatile pick. Go without the straps, wear them over the shoulders, cross them in back, or tie them like a halter for added support. Wear a style that makes you feel comfortable and confident.


When selecting the perfect prom dress for a theme, the ideas can be endless, so have fun with your choices. If your prom theme is “A Night Under the Stars,” or anything to do with starry nights, a dress in midnight blue or black dotted with sequins or rhinestones would be a beautiful choice.

Multi-coloured print dresses, high-low halter dresses with pleats or ruffled tulle layers, or extravagantly beaded gowns are sure to stand out for a “Mardi Gras” themed prom.

Attending a “Great Gatsby” prom or special decades night? Try a sequined shift dress, a dress with fringes, or a satin ball gown. If you have an “Under the Sea” prom night, a mermaid evening dress covered in multi-coloured sequins or a beautiful long chiffon gown with shimmering accents and illusion panels will set the tone for your fun evening.

Just imagine the fun you can have choosing an elegant floor-length evening gown with a red-carpet-worthy train for an “Old Hollywood” prom, or a tulle ball gown with long sheer sleeves for a prom with a “Phantom of the Opera” theme.

Whatever your prom theme, consider wearing special colours or decade-specific stylings to coordinate your prom dress pick.
