Selecting your bridesmaid dress color is no easy feat. You want to consider your wedding color scheme of course, but you also want to think about your lineup of maids and what hue would flatter a range of skin tones. Then there’s the question of whether you want to choose one single color, or a go for a spectrum that varies from light to dark.

If you’re planning for a spring or summer wedding, lighter pastel shades are perfect from pink to yellow to mint. This year, one sorbet shade is the color as far as fashion trends are concerned—lavender bridesmaid dresses! While we think it’s best to choose a color that suits you and your bridesmaids best, it’s fun to take trends into consideration and get in on the action if it’s fitting for your wedding.

Lavender is one of the prettiest shades of purple; it’s light and bright which is just right for a warm weather wedding, without feeling over the top (you know, like one of those shades your bridesmaids might roll their eyes at after hearing they have to wear it). It’s ultra-feminine and romantic too—frolicking through lavender fields sounds so heavenly, doesn’t it?

In terms of being a trendy color, the shade has been featured by countless designers in their spring and summer collections across the board from Victoria Beckham to Tibi to Michael Kors. While the color can feel a bit saccharine with your everyday wardrobe if it's worn head to toe, it can be flawless in the form of a lavender bridesmaid dress—delightfully sweet yet elevated, especially in a modern silhouette.

Here, we pulled together an assortment of lavender bridesmaid dresses to consider for your wedding day, including some very affordable options! From halter necklines to one-shoulder to strapless in a range of mini, midi, and maxi lengths, you’re sure to spot one you and your ’maids will love. Oh, and they’ll undoubtedly be thanking you for choosing such a fashion forward dress—with lavender you’ll have positioned them ahead of the curve.
