Bridesmaids Dresses Wedding Ideas

  • Don't worry—they're still super cute! 

    1. Mod Stripes

    Chic stripes that really can be worn again—how awesome is this look for a modern winter wedding? 

    2. High-Low Citrine

    These flowy yellow dresses were definitely a fashion risk . . . that completely paid off!  Love the way they look blowing in the breeze. 

    3. Chambray Polka Dots

    Casual chambray shirt dresses for a casual rustic wedding—this is laid-back wedding style at it's most fun. 

    4. Vintage Delicacies

    Long sheer dresses that almost look light nightgowns—we're envisioning these in a very Kate Moss-ian English Garden Wedding. 

    5. Ralph Lauren Rustic

    Suede fringe skirts, distressed leather boots, big belts, white shirts—this is heritage Americana at its most authentic, people. 

    6. Pin-Up Glam

    Betty Paige style get-ups, complete with seamed stockings and demure gloves. 

    7. Preppy Ribbons

    A spunky, sweet look for a cheerful southern wedding. 

    8. Studded Sleeves (and Collars!)

    Punky detailing + demure peter pan collar = a glam meets punk meets classic bridesmaid look we won't soon forget. 

    9. Graphic Black and White

    Stripes, prints, patterns, and solids—when considered in the same color palette, this seemingly random sampling suddenly seems perfectly styled. 

    10. An Actual Random Sampling

    We've seen mix and match bridesmaid dresses in the same color family before, but this group is genuinely all over the map. Why does it work so well? Because all of the hues are of similar vibrancy (and those gorgeous smiles don't hurt). 

    11. White-Out

    Neutral bridesmaids dresses are gaining steam this year, but a bridal party in all white is still a break with tradition. We love that this group went even further by opting for sleek, architectural silhouettes. 

    12. Floral Maxis

    Bold patten in a floor-length silhouette. Bravo, ladies—this is such a fun look for a more formal beach wedding.

  • The only place a girl might look more glam than a wedding? A major red carpet. Luckily, several of the gowns we spotted at the 2013 Emmy Awards would also make beautiful bridesmaid dresses. If we could bring you the real thing, we would, but since we can't, here's a roundup of 7 styles inspired by the best looks of the evening. 

    Similar To: Maria Menounos 

    Va-va-voom! Steal this popular TV correspondent's curve-hugging style for your maids with one of these gorgeous deep blue gowns. Left: Noir by Lazaro Style NZ3187. Right: Wtoo Maids Style 476. 

    Similar To: Rose Byrne 

    A bare midriff is a tad too trendy for most bridesmaids, but the rest of this actresses sleek Calvin Klein gown is perfectly lovely. Get the look by opting for a scoop neck and one-layer skirt. Left: Watters Maids 'Laurel' gown. Right: Moonlight Bridesmaids.   

    Similar To: Sofia Vergara 

    A slim skirt paired with a plunging V—does it get any more bombshell than that? These siren red gowns mirror the Modern Family actress's style to a T. Left: Jim Hjelm Occasions Style JH5362. Right: Group USA Bridesmaids Style 22500-47551.

    Similar To: Zooey Deschanel 

    We think Deschanel's pastel J. Mendel gown would look even sweeter with a cocktail-length hem. These two frocks will do the trick! Left: Siri Style 9521. Right: Alfred Sung for Dessy Group Style D597. 

    Similar to: Alyson Hannigan

    Hannigan's dramatic violet mermaid gown would fit right in with a glamorous winter wedding. Since her Marchesa gown is likely one of a kind, try one of these beautiful dresses instead. Left: DaVinci Bridal Style 60120. Right: Demetrios Style GR226 (technically a wedding dress). 

    Similar to: Amy Poehler 

    We loved the feminine yet fierce look of Amy Poehler's Basler gown! Soften up the style by opting for an illusion neckline filled in with lace. Left: Jim Hjelm Occasions JH5368. Right: Watters Maids Style 8218. 

    Similar To: Anna Farris 

    Anna Farris surprised us all with her neon chartreuse gown, and the color is a super-fun choice for a modern summer wedding. Left: Jasmine Bridal Style B153012. Right: Moonlight Bridesmaids.

    This is a fun, colorful motif for any spring or summer wedding. Add a little to your bridesmaids with a necklace or some earrings, or go full-tilt in a faux wrap dress. Either way, it's a winning look!
