Behind every fab bride is fabulous bridesmaids and these 11 beautiful bridesmaids from our real weddings are no exception! From their gorgeous dresses and matching bouquets to their perfect hair and make up, these lovely ladies are sure to inspire you when it comes to styling your bridesmaids!
With a unique wedding theme like superheroes, it is only natural that Katie wanted her bridesmaids to wear something unique to suit their individual style and personality. She chose to have dresses made for her best friend and sister by Maggie McAlister, opting for the same fabrics and striking colour to tie the two designs together. The vibrant bouquets finished off the look!
All in matching blush bridesmaid dresses, ivory shrugs and all sporting an up do, these eight beautiful bridesmaids look effortlessly sophisticated. Whilst they all look close to identical the girls have chosen their own nude shoes to ensure they are comfortable for the whole day. Their dainty bouquet made up of soft pinks, ivory and green, perfectly complimenting the pale colour palette.
If your friends and family have special skills, utilise them! This bride’s mother made these beautiful blue, vintage inspired bridesmaids dresses which have been teamed with a simple ivory bouquet and retro inspired hair styles. We love that the junior bridesmaid’s dress is slightly different to suit her age.
If you’re a girly girl dreaming of a fairytale wedding, you’ll love Janine’s choice of dresses for her bridesmaids. These blush pink, chiffon dresses with an asymmetric frilly strap are super romantic and feminine and look gorgeous with the white rose and baby’s breath bouquet.
Claire opted for a vintage inspired wedding and these pale sage green gowns fitted in perfectly. We adore the pleated bodice and their soft and romantic up do’s which help show off the pretty floral detail on the shoulder.
When Francesca married Arun, she chose to embrace his Indian heritage and had her bridesmaids dressed in stunning sarees in a range of jewel tones and gold. This is a fabulous example of how to embrace a fusion wedding and celebrate multiple cultures.
Marina’s bridesmaids were her three sisters and her best friend who also happens to be the grooms sister! She married Gary in a beautiful alfresco wedding in Portugal. Whilst the theme was lavender, she chose a vibrant shade of purple for the girls to wear for the destination wedding which complemented her stunning ivory and gold dress by Maggie Sottero.
Whilst some brides want all their bridesmaids to match, Crystal opted for a more laid back approach, allowing her five bridesmaids to choose a different style of dress as long as they were navy, chiffon and to the knee. The dresses were from David’s Bridal and the relax feel of the wedding continued with all the bridesmaids opting for hair down.
Reflecting the beautiful clear skies and blue waters of Lake Garda where Jeannie and Peter married, turquoise was the perfect choice of colour for the bridesmaid dresses. Dressed in strapless, knee length chiffon dresses to keep them cool in the heat, these two looked effortlessly gorgeous for this picturesque Italian wedding.
This stunning shade of purple with a dash of pink perfectly reflects Precious’ fun loving and glamorous wedding. With eight bridesmaid,s it was important to her that they chose dresses which were comfortable and that would suit them all. They all had foam bouquets, giving the girls a keepsake from the wedding.
Joanna’s five bridesmaids looked stunning in their chiffon, pewter coloured dresses from Monsoon. With their hair in waves and pinned back with flowers, they looked every inch the Grecian goddess!
