We’ve all seen the old family wedding photos. We’ve all heard the horror stories. The bridesmaid dress has a famously unflattering history. Heinous patterns. Gargantuan poofy sleeves. Matching floppy hats

But, thankfully, weddings survived the era of the ugly bridesmaid dress. 🙌 And now we find ourselves in the heart of the bridesmaid dress golden age! Bridesmaid dresses now are chic and re-wearable. Sleek satin looks are having their moment. And the ever-popular mismatched bridal party palette has opened the door for bridesmaids to find dresses that feel the most like their own unique personal style.

But! That means figuring out where to start looking. A dress that you adore that also fits the specific wedding color scheme, aesthetic, and vibe that your bride-to-be bestie has worked so hard to create—sounds a little impossible? Don’t panic. AW Bridal has got your back, baby.

First up: this icy blue beauty. The Mugwort dress, seen here in Dusty Blue, is queen of the cool tone bridesmaid looks. We love the chic high halter neckline and relaxed column silhouette.

2: AW Janina Dress

The super flattering arched waistline adds some delicate shape-defining drama to the Janina’s gently flared skirt. And we are so into the playful pleating of the halter neck bodice! It’s super romantic in Dusty Rose but comes in lots of other colors, too!

3: AW Lawrence Dress

So into the sultry high slit of the Lawrence dress. And the unique twisted keyhole detail of the neckline really sets it apart. Also, the shimmer + shine of the satin fabric looks particularly elegant in this earthy Green Olive tone.

4: AW Furst Dress

The beautiful, fluttery butterfly sleeves and wrap dress-esque pleated plunge bodice of the the Furst dress are universally flattering details. In other words: you can’t lose with this one. That waisted, flowy skirt silhouette is gonna look great on everybody. Especially in this delicate pastel shade of Sage Green!

Totally in love with the twisted halter neck plunge bodice of the Largo dress. And this satin charmeuse fabric in Raw Sienna is a perfectly warm + dreamy terracotta tone. You’ve gotta go take a good look at this one, though, cause the back is beautiful, too!

The Laurinda dress’s cowl neck and structured bodice are screaming Old Hollywood glam. And that slit 😍 Also, we’ve got a secret to share: Those pleated cap sleeves? You can slip those down and create an elegant off-the-shoulder look! Add removable straps to create to even more options.

The Dey dress is giving cottagecore charm and we are here for it. The elastic edged puff sleeves can be worn on or off-the-shoulder, and that pleated sweetheart neckline bodice is SO romantic!!

8: AW Etta Dress

There is something so simple + stunning about a square neckline. The Etta dress—here in beautiful Baby Blue—is full of surprises with that hidden high slit! Loving the elegant A-line silhouette and those princess-worthy puff sleeves.

9: AW Kora Dress

If bridesmaid dresses were pop stars, cowl neck satin looks with a mid-thigh slit would be the Beyoncé. Queen Bey simply never misses and neither do dresses like the Kora. So soft + ethereal here in Sage Green.
