What do Kate Moss and Kate Middleton have in common? They both chose to outfit their bridal parties in beautiful white dresses. Fast-forward to 2021, and white wedding party dresses are as popular ever and have become one of the hottest bridal trends. But while white bridal party dresses make for an undeniably fashion-forward look, how can brides wearing the same hue ensure they’ll stand out on their wedding day?
The key to embracing and executing this coveted trend is to pick bridal party dresses that look distinctly different from your own wedding gown. For example, if you’re wearing a modern, strapless dress, opt to outfit your bridal party in a simple silhouette with a different type of neckline. This will create a nice contrast between your wedding gown and bridal party dresses while still looking elegant and cohesive. Another perk to choosing white bridal party dresses? White looks great on everyone. Plus, it's is a neutral hue that plays nicely with every wedding color palette from rich jewel tones to soft pastels.
From casual knee-length dresses to formal A-line gowns, read on for the best white bridal party dresses to complement all bridal styles.

Will my white wedding dress still stand out if I have white bridal party dresses?

Do white bridal party dresses work well with blush wedding gowns?
Absolutely! The great thing about white is that it's a neutral hue that goes with everything from bright colors to muted tones.
Can my white bridal party dresses have the same neckline as my wedding dress?
This is entirely up to you. If you want your bridal party to match you perfectly, you can choose to outfit them in a dress that looks similar to your own wedding ensemble. But if you want your bridal party dresses to have a distinctly different look, opt for a silhouette with a neckline or hemline that is unlike your own.
