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.

Embroidered Pop of Color
We’re swooning over these uniquely embroidered For Love and Lemons dresses, where rich marsala pops against a sheer canvas.
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.
Deep Rustic Color Combo
Deep, luscious hues of marigold, orange, sepia, and saffron make for an unexpected color combo rich in autumnal tones and citrusy notes.
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.
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.
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.
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. "I wanted my bridesmaids to be able to express a level of individuality while still maintaining a cohesive look," explains the bride.
