That old saying "Always a bridesmaid, never a bride" hardly applies to actress Rachel Bilson. After all, Bilson has been with her love, Hayden Christensen, since 2007, and they share a daughter, two-year-old Briar Rose (although the pair hasn't officially tied the knot yet...). But the Hart of Dixie star is definitely an expert when it comes to bridesmaid duty. This weekend, Bilson just stunned as a bridesmaid (yet again!) at a friend's nupitals. And she looked so gorg, any of your 'maids would be thrilled to rock her pink bridesmaids' frock.
It looks like Bilson is officially headed into 27 Dresses territory. In June 2016, Bilson was a bridesmaid at her brother's wedding, wearing a blue lace sheath from Self-Portrait for the rehearsal dinner and a pale-pink chiffon bridesmaids' gown for her walk down the aisle. So while this weekend certainly wasn't Bilson's first foray as a 'maid, it might just be her chicest!
On Saturday, Bilson took to Instagram to show off all the wedding-weekend fun, posting a peek of the nuptials with two gal pals by her side. "#Alwaysabridesmaid," Bilson captioned the shot. Hey! Like we said, Bilson, that hardly applies! (But if you're looking to don a wedding dress and say "I do" to Hayden, we definitely won't be complaining....)
Bilson later shared a full-length photo of her bridesmaids' dress. And, guys, it's gorgeous. The gown features a pretty pink hue, a princess-worthy floor-sweeping hemline, an off-the-shoulder sweetheart neckline, and a curve-hugging silhouette. Without a ruffle or unflattering seam in sight, this is what bridesmaids' dreams are made of!
Bilson isn't the only celeb bridesmaid who has stepped out of the spotlight to let their BFF brides shine. For example, when Taylor Swift's childhood best friend wed her high school sweetheart, the superstar was right there by her side in a Reem Acra bridesmaids' dress. Lady Gaga also ditched her elaborate costumes and meat dresses for a much more demure bridesmaids' frock when she walked down the aisle at her lifelong bestie's wedding. Even Beyoncé took a turn at bridal-party duties!
Bridesmaids of the world, y'all are in super-chic company!
