Ahead, here are 20 silver bridal party dresses sure to make a serious entrance—without showing up the bride, of course (because you also don't want to be that girl).
Best Strapless Design: Jarlo Maxi Wrap Dress with Thigh Split
A basic tube dress is a nice go-to, but the tulle-draped bodice on this strapless style feels wedding day special. The wispy gathering adds tons of texture to this simple silhouette, and the lightweight fabric makes it appropriate for summer nuptials.
Best Cocktail Length: TFNC Tall Bridal Party Satin Long Sleeve Wrap Front Midi Dress
Cocktail-length dresses (which hit right below the knee) are perfect for daytime weddings and more casual soirées. However, this satin dress with billowing sleeves can easily be dressed up with a chandelier earring and a strappy heel.
Best Convertible Design: Lulus Tricks of the Trade Taupe Maxi Dress
Perfect for customizing a look that works best for your body type and style preferences, this stretch jersey dress features two lengths of fabric attached to an elastic waistband. Use these strips to create endless bodice styles, from halter to one-shoulder, strapless, and even this deep-V design.
Best Mini: Monique Lhuillier Embroidered Strapless Cocktail Dress
If you're going to opt for a short dress, make sure it boasts a certain je ne sais quoi. This strapless fit and flare is covered in a metallic embroidery that can be dressed up for more formal affairs, or paired down for more intimate settings like a chapel wedding.
Best Mermaid Style: White by Vera Wang V-Wire Crepe Mermaid Bridal Party Dress
A mermaid silhouette isn't exclusively reserved for brides—however, this subtle shape accentuates your curves without upstaging the lady of the hour. The chiffon godets add tons of movement and create a barely-there flare for an hourglass figure.
Best Cold-Shoulder Design: Birdy Grey Spence Convertible Dress
This airy chiffon dress boasts the best of both worlds up top: Off-the-shoulder draping for a romantic feel and spaghetti straps for extra support. A must for the practical gal, this silver stunner also includes pockets to hide your iPhone and some oil-blotting sheets.
For the Fashion Girl: Christopher Kane Lace-Trimmed Chainmail Gown
While this may look like a simple lingerie-inspired gown at first glance, it's actually crafted from metallic chainmail. Juxtaposed with a feminine and delicate Chantilly lace deep-V neckline, this Christopher Kane design is a must for any fashion girl.
