As classic and beautiful as matching breezy bridesmaid dresses can be, a bride who puts a twist on tradition makes for an exciting change. Bridesmaids dresses have had their fair share of…questionable moments, but thankfully bridesmaid style is evolving. Long gone are the days of puffy sleeves, mega bows and ruching; 2019 is all about your bridesmaids looking and feeling their best by your side.

Some brides give their crew free rein as long as they stick within a certain color palette. Others tailor their criteria a little more but still keep in mind the shapes, sizes, and tastes of their girl gang. Either way, trying something different can have some super dreamy payoffs. And as an added bonus, bridesmaids are more likely to wear the look again if it’s doesn't feel so bridesmaids-y.

Be it jumpsuits, sexy satin or whimsical ruffles, whatever your bridesmaid style is we’ve found something that’ll fit you (we hope!). Here’s some inspo from a few of our favorite stylish and unconventional bridal parties!

Off the shoulder! Peasant tops! V necks! Separates are a fun way to mix and match a unique bridesmaid look.

Try something completely outside of the box with a jumpsuit! You’re sure to turn heads and they’re perfect for dropping it low on the dance floor.

Absolutely throw caution to the wind with something whimsical and bright. Although, these dresses on their own don’t scream bridesmaid, together they work for an eccentric and colorful affair.

 

Mismatched Styles

Complementary colors are a great way to match without matching. Each dress can have it’s own distinct style and color, but when they come together they won’t clash.

With color blocked bridesmaids there’s no such thing as colors not matching, especially when they’re the pops of color in an otherwise sleek and minimalist ceremony.

Who says bridesmaids can’t be a little sexy? I’m all for something a little extra saucy and satin walking down the aisle!

Some might say a glitzy gown pulls focus from the bride, but I say a little sequin magic never hurt anyone. Plus, on your wedding day no amount of glitter is going to stop your friends and family from being all heart-eyed over you and your new spouse.
