One of our favorite parts of any wedding is the bridesmaids!
Support and love from your girls is the best. Taylor and I were both blessed to have some pretty amazing bridesmaids on our day. So we wanted to dedicate a post to them!
It can be hard to find a cohesive look for your bridesmaids and with lots of different personalities it can be complicated and sometimes stressful to find something that everyone agrees on. But there are SOOOO many options out there these days that it’s definitely easier than it used to be! Here are some of our favorite bridesmaid's looks from the last couple of years.
We love when brides choose different dresses for their bridesmaids! It’s a fun way to show off everyone’s personality and add some intrigue to your photos while still keeping things cohesive. There are so many options this way too! Just give them a color palette and style ( like neutrals, floor length) and then they can find what works best for them. Plus, look how amazing it looks in pictures with the flowers!
This one below includes different textures like lace as well which is so stunning in photos! Don’t be afraid to mix different prints as well- when it’s done right it’s gorgeous.
If the mismatched look isn’t for you, definitely don’t stress. There are some cool ways you can give your bridesmaids a little more freedom without looking too different. One of them is to have the same color dress but in different styles! Everyone still looks really streamlined with the color, but with slight differences. There are actually a lot of options for this since it’s become more popular in recent years.
Another option that we love is to just give your maid of honor a different dress, which you’ll see a few times. It’s a fun way to just make her stand out!
We also REALLY love the light, nude colored bridesmaid look. Or black which has shown up more and more. The similarity of the nude colored dresses and the contrast of the black ones are so striking! And definitely not the norm.
Also, we LOVE when brides have cutie jackets for their bridesmaids to wear for some of the pictures. That happened a few times this year at weddings we did and it was seriously so fun! We love the black and white contrast below.
And finally, the classic all the same dress look. Which we have to say, when done will is just as stunning as any of these other ones. We love how elegant it looks! We also love the black pea coat look that the bride below chose for her winter wedding. So unique!
Thank you for hanging out with us! We hope this inspired you for your own bridesmaid looks or if you know anyone who needs some inspo- pass it along!
Love, Josie + Tay
