Selecting and finding the perfect bridesmaids’ dresses for your bridesmaids is not an easy task. You want your bridesmaids to feel comfortable and look great. There are other considerations like affordability, colors, fabric and silhouette styles which are all very important too. The good news is that with all of the new trends and styles available, you will be able to find the perfect dress for each of your bridesmaids.

Tips for Selecting Bridesmaids' Dresses

There are a variety of different options to consider when determining what color, length, and silhouette you may want for your bridesmaids. The trends have changed over the years, but today’s brides have the freedom and available dress selection to choose the perfect bridesmaids’ dresses for the wedding.

Matching Designs

The tradition of matching bridesmaids’ dresses is still very popular for all weddings. When a bride chooses a single color and dress silhouette for all of her bridesmaids, it creates a cohesive look that can be part of the entire wedding theme.

Same Color Different Silhouette

Many brides elect to select a single color for the bridesmaids’ dresses, but allow each bridesmaid to select the silhouette. Bridesmaids really like this option because it allows them to feel comfortable in a dress style that fits each unique body type. This freedom increases the chances that they will wear the gown again while still keeping a consistent look throughout the wedding.


Ivory dresses are extremely popular with brides looking to create a monochromatic design. From the bridesmaids’ gowns to the florals and other décor, this trend is very popular.

Add A Little Sparkle

Sequins, rhinestones, and a little bling are all the rage for many modern bridal fashions. Many brides want their bridesmaids to make a statement as they walk down the wedding aisle. Whether you want an art deco look or just a little sparkle, it is okay to have a little bit of creativity with your bridal party fashions.

Mix & Match

The Bridesmaid’s Runway style is becoming a very popular trend in the bridal industry. Basically, brides are incorporating a color palette and a variety of dress silhouette styles into their bridesmaids dress selection. Brides are mixing and matching colors, dress lengths, and silhouette styles creating a gorgeous array of dresses that result in a unique fashion runway bridal party.
