With so many perfectly springy shades to choose from like petal pink, soft blue, lilac, and mint green, pastel bridesmaid dresses are undeniably romantic for a spring wedding. Colorful yet subtle, these versatile shades can work for any type of wedding from a backyard ceremony to seaside nuptials. Plus, with an abundance of hues and silhouettes to choose from, there’s a pastel bridesmaid dress out there to suit every bridal style, too.

Looking to pull off mismatched bridesmaid dresses? Pastel bridesmaid dresses come in an array of versatile shades that are easy to mix and match.

For a classic take on pastel bridesmaid dresses, simple silhouettes in a single shade will feel polished and timeless for the traditional bride. If minimalism is more your speed, sleek slip dresses and unadorned styles in barely-there blush will complement your modern aesthetic. For the bride planning a destination wedding, bridesmaid dresses in sky blue and seafoam green will echo the serenity of a seaside wedding. And lastly, since pastel dresses were born to be mixed and matched, fashion-forward brides should experiment with different colors, textures, and prints (think florals!) to achieve that effortless mismatched look.

From unexpected yellow shades to classic baby blue, we've rounded up the prettiest pastel bridesmaid dresses for a spring wedding.
