Gone are the days of walking down the aisle dressed in overly frilly, cringe-worthy bridesmaids dresses. Thanks to these five favorite LA shops, bridesmaids will want to wear their fresh and fashionable bridesmaids frocks again and again.
Reformation’s Melrose Avenue boutique in West Hollywood is where all of the cool girls shop in LA and for good reason. The eco-conscious label creates flirty, figure-flattering frocks that are relaxed, sexy, and elegant all at once. The label’s wedding collection, in particular, is filled with flowy, floor-length dresses with exposed backs, plunging necklines, and high slits in fierce hues like navy blue, emerald green, and burgundy. Bridesmaids may never want to take them off.
Nasty Gal’s Melrose Avenue and Santa Monica boutiques are filled with unapologetically cool dresses bridesmaids will want to wear long after the wedding ceremony. Opt for beautiful lace maxi dresses or go the non-traditional route with chic jumpsuits that will be the envy of other bridal parties. (To boot, the prices are really affordable.) Even the retailer’s #Girlboss founder Sophia Amoruso had her bridesmaids wear custom Nasty Gal dresses to match her wedding’s oxblood color scheme.
This Downtown LA dress playground is a vintage lover’s dream. Brides and bridesmaids alike will love perusing the vintage shop’s racks filled with one-of-a-kind dresses. Its strict no-boys-allowed policy allows bridal parties to spend the afternoon playing dress up together. In this treasure trove, bridesmaids will no doubt find a dress that they will treasure for years to come. In addition, owner Shareen Mitchell also designs a bridal collection of dreamy dresses for the non-traditional bride.
Head to BCBG for trendy, of-the-moment styles bridesmaids will love. Dress styles range from simple and elegant shift dresses to floor-length gowns with interesting cutouts. For something truly bold, opt for something unconventional like a tailored double-breasted jacket fused with a playful tulle skirt or a sleek mini dress with a statement-making cape.
For a wedding with a romantic, ethereal aesthetic, there’s no better place to shop for beautiful bridesmaids dresses than BHLDN in Beverly Hills. The shop boasts vintage-inspired bridesmaids dresses that are glamorous and graceful without being over the top. Find a variety of romantic styles in pastel hues like blush, lavender, and sea foam green, as well as deeper tones like black cherry, antique orchid, and midnight blue. Your bridesmaids will thank you.
