33 Yellow Bridesmaid Dresses For A Spring Or Summer Wedding

This cheerful hue is gorgeous on every skin tone

Updated 03/12/18

Yellow is one of those colors that easily intimidates a lot of women. Often thought of as challenging to pull off, it’s truthfully quite flattering on every skin tone. If you’re thinking of selecting yellow bridesmaid dresses, we’re definitely here for it. Because yellow befits such a range, we love it as a color spectrum to suit the mélange of complexions your bridal party is likely made up of, blending sorbet shades bended with highly pigmented hues. Of course, the brightest neon versions can be alarming (especially for a wedding), but shades like pineapple, canary, and dandelion are gorgeous options for bridesmaids. To wit, yellow is a major color trend this spring, making it a prime choice for a forward bridal party look, seen across designer collection from Oscar de la Renta to Tom Ford to Marc Jacobs.

Entirely cheerful, yellow bridesmaid dresses come pale and pretty or bold and brilliant; the color is beyond stunning for a warm weather wedding in the spring or summer. The trick for pulling off yellow with aplomb is selecting the right shade for each complexion. For fair ladies, a pastel like cream, banana, or daffodil is a soft compliment that won’t wash you out. Medium or olive skin tones look gorgeous in warmer tones like honey, mustard, or butterscotch while dark complexions appear radiant in a vibrant lemon or chartreuse.

Thanks to the trendiness of yellow, a range of labels that extend beyond traditional wedding retailers are putting out fresh silhouettes from bow-adorned minis to cold-shoulder midis to tiered maxis. Opting for a print in the hue is a stylish way to rock it, too—choose from sweeping chiffon to high-shine satin to elegant crêpe. Whether you pick printed or solid dresses (a mix of both looks amazing in a bridal lineup, too!), your bridesmaids will find they can wear their yellow dress again for myriad occasions as a wedding guest, for date night, or at a summer soiree.

From one-shoulder necklines to long-sleeve to strapless in a range of mini, midi, and maxi lengths, you’re sure to spot a yellow bridesmaid dress you and your ’maids will love. Whether you opt for a style from a bridal retailer or go for a contemporary label, ahead you’ll find a ton of affordable options all the way to a few splurge-worthy spends.
