If you’re looking to give your bridesmaids some killer bridal party style, then you’ve come to the right place. Long gone are the days of identical matching bridesmaid dresses. The same color and style can still be executed flawlessly, but there are a number of other ways to dress your girls that are just as gorgeous—and in some cases—more creative.
Beyond the beloved mismatched trend (who doesn't appreciate a little print and pattern play?), we're currently loving the look of an all-white bridal party. Brides aren’t the only ones who can wear white anymore. When bridesmaids wear white as well, the look is always chic and unconventional, whether it’s vintage lace or contemporary romance. We’re also guilty of loving a good floral print—give it to us in a tiny pattern, oversized blooms, ombré effect, or a single statement piece, and we’re swooning.
And who says your girls have to wear dresses, anyway? Rompers and jumpsuits are a sweet, trendy alternative, and separates consisting of a crop top and skirt are just as stylish, offering a slightly indie vibe. If neither are your thing and you love a good dress, don’t confine your search to typical bridesmaid dresses. There’s a bounty of maxis out there sure to give your bridal party a unique spin.

All White Everything
White is no longer reserved for just the bride—these maids pull off the stark color with tea-length dresses in various styles and textures cohesively brought together by the uniform bouquets.
Embroidered Pop of Color
We’re swooning over these uniquely embroidered For Love and Lemons dresses, where rich marsala pops against a sheer canvas.
Navy blues and emerald greens are an unexpected combination that translate surprisingly well together. Like a deep, sophisticated palette reminiscent of a tumultuous sea. The dresses were punctuated with anemonie-laden bouquets.
Elegant in Ivory
Nude gowns in different styles have an air of laid-back elegance, connected by matching floral appliqués.
Fifty shades of gray has never looked so classy, or so coastal, with each lady flaunting a different tone of the smokey color tinged with hints of taupe, blue, or seafoam. "They are all so uniquely different, and I wanted them to wear something that they felt comfortable in and that fit their personality/style," says bride Jenneh.
Bold and Beautiful
Big, bold, and beautiful, these colorful ASOS dresses make a punchy statement with oversized blooms. We love how different silhouettes highlight each bridesmaid’s personality.

Deep, luscious hues of marigold, orange, sepia, and saffron make for an unexpected color combo rich in autumnal tones and citrusy notes.
Sharp, sexy, and sleek—we’re all about this edgy-chic menswear look. Bridesmaids in pantsuits are stunningly editorial and fashion-forward.
Crisp and clean, these navy cowl-neck dresses are the picture of sophisticated elegance and class. “I wanted a uniform look for my bridesmaids, as well as a dress that was flattering and timeless," recalls the bride. "I’ve always loved a cowl neck and thought the style fit the aesthetic of the wedding perfectly.”
Garden-Inspired Pastel Perfection
In sky-blue tones and sunshine-hued floral prints this bridal party is the epitome of pastel perfection. Bonus: The bouquets even match the various floral prints, as if by magic.
Matching pomegranate-colored chiffon dresses inject a considerable dose of glam romance when paired with the bride's quintessential white and groom's black tux. The bride was pleasantly surprised the style flattered all of her bridesmaids so well—two of which were pregnant at the time.
Paisley printed dresses that evoke wild blue yonder pair with cowboy boots for a look that complements the surrounding farm beauty.
Vintage Vibes in Lace
Matching lace dresses in white sing a tune of vintage romance, while floral crowns and complementing bouquets in white and dusty rose hues lend a boho touch.
These glam ladies dazzle in a stunning array of shimmering pewter, silver, and black. The varied textures and refractions of light look exquisite in photos, as well as on the dance floor.
Florals and Muted Palettes
Muted palettes, fitted silhouettes, and horizontal floral patterns? We’re all about it.

These bridesmaids (and the bride) are rocking the most creative styles we’ve ever seen. Fringe, appliqués, and asymmetrical designs take shape in varying silhouettes of slate blue for indie styles with total personality and flair.
Pretty in Pink
If this isn’t the picture of pretty, we’re not sure what is. We can’t blame these girls for striking a pose in their blush dresses against a dreamy rainbow backdrop.
Straight-up perfection over here in matching maxis, tousled waves, and delicate floral crowns for a chill bohemian-luxe vibe.
Everyone in Emerald
Jewel-tone silks and velvets are exquisitely sumptuous and luxurious, the perfect complement to a black-tie winter wedding. Every single one of these bridesmaids looks dazzling in the emerald-green shade.

Everyone embodied the very essence of fabulous with the maid of honor denoting her status in a glittering gown. "I wanted my bridesmaids to be able to express a level of individuality while still maintaining a cohesive look," explains the bride.
While we may have already touched on the all-white bridal party aesthetic, winter white takes things to an entirely new level. This bride topped her ladies off with faux fur wraps to stave of the chill and unify their individual choices of jumpsuits or gowns.
