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 same style can still be executed magnificently, but there are a number of other ways to dress your girls that are just as gorgeous—and in some cases, more creative.
Of course, there’s the beloved mismatched trend. What began as varying dress designs in the same color, or different shades in the same silhouette, has now been elevated to play with different prints and patterns in different styles or boldly different colors with a connecting theme to balance cohesiveness with contrast. Assign your babes an overall style—autumnal tones, bohemian, etc.—and let them go wild.
One of our favorite trends right now is an all white bridal party. Yes, you heard us right! 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, ombre effect, or 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 look a unique spin.
So what are you waiting for? If you’re in need of ideas to dress your besties on the big day, scroll on down for some serious bridal party goals.
