Festive with a hint of Old Hollywood glamour, beaded bridesmaid dresses are a sophisticated way to add a touch of sparkle to your wedding day. These shimmering styles catch the light from every angle and dazzle all the way from the aisle to the after-party. Plus, beaded bridesmaid dresses are surprisingly versatile, and work for all dress codes and seasons.

If you're a bride-to-be whose tastes lean more glamorous than minimalist, heavily beaded gowns in dramatic silhouettes and deep jewel tones feel opulent and luxurious. For dress codes that call for festive attire, embellished bridesmaid dresses in rich burgundy and bordeaux, or shimmering silver, are especially striking for a holiday or New Year's Eve wedding. And, don't forget, beaded bridesmaid dresses work for spring and summer nuptials, too! Lightweight pastel styles with subtle or floral-inspired beading are as sweet as ever for warm-weather weddings.

Ahead, the best beaded bridesmaid dresses for all styles, seasons, and budgets.
