wedding wednesday: bridesmaids in white

Last year, I started exploring the history of bridesmaids wearing white to match or complement the bride's gown.  It's a look that works particularly well in spring weddings, and, whether the bridesmaids wear matching dresses or an assortment of frocks, can give a wedding a uniquely bohemian look.  Here are some of my favorites from around the web.

I love how unique each bridesmaid's dress is in this wedding party - maxi dresses, midi dresses, and sundresses in various shades of ivory and white, with brightly colored flowers and loose boho hairstyles - does it get any more hippie chic than this?

With a bride in ivory ruffles, bridesmaids in lace-trimmed white sundresses really stand out - the baby's breath bouquets are another great way to tie in the white color scheme.

How gorgeous are these long, vintage inspired bohemian gowns?  The bride still stands out since her dress is more structured and formal than her maids' flowy styles.

Gorgeous long dresses, matching wraps, beautiful curled hairstyles and classic rose bouquets unite this elegant wedding party.

I love the sheer lace on these bridesmaids' skirts - and the way the bride's white bouquet and flower crown makes her stand out.  What an ethereal wedding look!


  1. I wore a white dress when I was a bridesmaid a couple years ago--before that I hadn't heard of any other weddings where that was done!

  2. White bridesmaids' dresses have been on the rise for a few years - I think what really brought the trend back was Kate Middleton's wedding in 2011.
