You and your closest girls will love these light purple bridal looks.

Lavender: It makes for an amazing scented soap, looks extra pretty in a sprig, and also happens to be one of our favorite bridesmaid dress colors.

Lavender is so timeless, it's practically a neutral. While the pastel color has been traditionally associated with the spring, it couldn't be more versatile. Like rose, lavender comes in an array of shades — from the gray-toned silver-esque violets, which are perfect for a winter wedding, to the more orchid-like, pink-infused tones fit for warm-weather functions.

It's extra unique because it's a hue that can be read as both warm and cool, depending on how it's fabricated. So you can easily find a lavender bridesmaid dress that will work for your big day's season, style, and color scheme.

Looking for something boho? Donna Morgan's draped one-should number has you covered. How about classic? There's Ann Taylor's silk dupioni bow-tied dress for that. As for the romantics out there, Monique Lhuillier makes a light-and-airy ruched chiffon dress with a floral-lace illusion neckline, while Amsale flower-printed chiffon sweetheart floor-length sheath would look amazing on the beach. Whether you want a whimsy light hue or a color your 'maids will love, you can't go wrong with lavender bridesmaid dresses.
