When it comes to wedding color palettes, blue is a classic. Whether it's in décor, a something-blue accessory, the stationery suite, flowers, or even the escort card display, you can expect blue details in at least one of the weddings you attend. Blue is, naturally, a fitting hue for a nautical or seaside ceremony, but with so many shades to choose from, you can incorporate blue details into your wedding no matter the season or location.

One place where blue feels right at home is in a bridesmaid dress. A blue bridesmaid dress is a tried-and-true look that will flatter your whole team.

Luckily, there is a score of blue bridesmaid dresses to choose from. Whether you plan to dress your 'maids in long-sleeved gowns for a winter wedding or strapless dresses for summer nuptials, there's guaranteed to be a style perfect for your squad.

Shopping FAQs

Looking for some tips on how to choose the very best blue bridesmaid dress (or dresses!) for your squad? Below, we answered three common questions to help you out.

  • Do all my bridesmaids have to wear the same color blue? Although it's traditional for bridesmaids to not only wear the same color but the exact same dress, brides are moving away from this standard and choosing mismatched dresses for their attendants. That said, if your 'maids all wear a different shade, they should complement one another. You can aim for an ombre effect (which looks great in photos!) with everyone wearing the same dress in different shades, ranging from light to dark.
  • Should all my bridesmaids wear the same dress? That's up to you! But if you decide you'd like them all to dress the same, take into consideration your bridesmaids' body types and preferences. If someone prefers a high neckline or sleeves instead of strapless, you should allow them to modify their gowns accordingly. Even more, you can let your 'maids choose from a few different dresses that you've picked out and think go well together. That way, they'll still coordinate, but be able to express their personal styles and feel confident.
  • What shade of blue should I choose? Blue comes in such a wide range of hues, so it might be daunting to choose the one that fits your wedding best. Consider the season and your venue. Pastel, robin's-egg, and sky blue befit a spring or summer wedding, while royal and navy blue are common shades for fall or winter. It's not a hard-and-fast rule, though; it's ultimately up to what you think will suit your décor and theme.
