From lilac to plum and mauve, a purple bridesmaid dress is a beautiful choice for your bridal party. Whether you’re planning to get married in the spring, summer, fall, or winter, there are so many pretty shades of purple that will feel right for any season. With so many variations that range from light to dark, there’s a purple tone for every bridesmaid, no matter her complexion or style.
Whether you’re thinking of purple bridesmaid dresses all in one shade or for a mix-and-match palette, you really can’t go wrong! We love the idea of combining a pale shade like lilac or lavender with deeper tones like sangria or plum. For a more muted look, periwinkle and mauve are gorgeous together. If you like the idea of a statement-making spectrum, consider amethyst, lilac, magenta, and mauve all at once. For a little more dimension, a purple floral print or pattern is stunning in the mix, too.

From halter necklines to one-shoulder styles; strapless silhouettes to spaghetti straps; flutter sleeves to trendy puffy sleeves; all in a range of mini, midi, and maxi lengths, you’re sure to spot the perfect purple dress or dresses that you and your bridesmaids will love.
