If you’re looking to give your bridesmaids some killer bridal party style, then you’ve come to the right place. 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 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 is 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.

These grooms know a little something about sartorial contrast. Surrounded by a squad of attendants in silken ivory hues, they paint quite the dramatic picture before the lush, green vista.
A Unifying Accessory
These bridesmaids were given carte blanche when it came to choosing their wedding-day best. So what's the key to their cohesive presence? Keeping within a neutral color palette and rocking matching baby's breath accessories.
Glamorous in Black
These ladies certainly know their way around a photoshoot, serving pose after pose in their individual all-black attire. Everyone embodied the very essence of fabulous with the maid of honor denoting her status in a glittering gown.
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.
Navy blues and emerald greens are an unexpected combination that translates surprisingly well together. Like a deep, sophisticated palette reminiscent of a tumultuous sea. Here, the dresses were punctuated with anemonie-laden bouquets.
Nude gowns in different styles have an air of laid-back elegance, connected by matching floral appliqués. We love the vintage vixen vibe that results.
Fifty shades of gray has never looked so classy, or so coastal, with each lady flaunting a different tone of the smoky color tinged with hints of taupe, blue, or sea foam. "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 dresses make a punchy statement with oversized blooms. We love how different silhouettes highlight the versatility of the larger-than-life print.
Deep Rustic Color Combo
Deep, luscious hues of marigold, orange, sepia, and saffron make for an unexpected color combo rich in spicy tones and citrus notes. This palette is stunning for a late summer celebration or early fall fête.
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-hued 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.
Vintage Vibes in Lace
Matching lace dresses in white sing a tune of retro romance, while floral crowns and complementing bouquets in ivory and dusty rose tones lend a boho touch. This gorgeous group looks sweet as can be in all their vintage-inspired glory.
Terracotta and rust, smoky tones, and burgundy notes all grounded in sumptuous fabrics of velvet and satin. This well-outfitted crew is the very personification of autumnal bliss.
Florals and Muted Palettes
Muted palettes, fitted silhouettes, and horizontal floral patterns? We’re all about it. Check out how the bouquets even feature similar flowers to the dress pattern. Now that's attention to detail.
Earthy tones of purple and sienna have a fall feel with a refined touch. And those wild-looking, foraged bouquets finish off the aesthetic beautifully.
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.
Woodland Fairy Vibes
These 'maids nail the mismatched dress trend—and get points for maximum re-wear potential. Different styles play with equally different colors, textures, and prints while still managing to be cohesive.
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 off the chill and unify their individual choices of jumpsuits or gowns.
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.
Tailored in Teal
The richness of these jewel tones needs no introduction. These handwoven silk banarasi brocade saris look absolutely impeccable, accented by the groomsmen's matching kurtas and mundus with gilded palm-leaf patterns. Now that's a cohesive crew!
Mismatched Ditzy Print
Ladies, take note: This is how you pull off a mismatched print. Allover prints are much more wearable when the florals are of a smaller scale and the matching pale blue palette keeps everyone on the same page.
This rainbow of differing silhouettes looks perfectly planned in the romantic palette of pink and red hues. "I wanted to be cognizant of the fact that everyone’s body and what they like is different," says the bride. "I wanted my girls to be able to show up as themselves."
We’re feeling blue, and not in a bad way. How trendy are these bridesmaids in mismatched silhouettes?
Like a Fine Wine
This classic burgundy hue is given a dose of freshness from the variations in necklines. We especially love the unexpected blush posies against the deep color.
Straight-up perfection over here in matching maxis, tousled waves, and delicate floral crowns for a chill bohemian-luxe vibe. Maximalist floral prints can be difficult for a crew of this size to pull off, but these 'maids do it effortlessly.
