Chic stripes that really can be worn again—how awesome is this look for a modern winter wedding?

These flowy yellow dresses were definitely a fashion risk . . . that completely paid off!  Love the way they look blowing in the breeze.

Casual chambray shirt dresses for a casual rustic wedding—this is laid-back wedding style at it's most fun. 

4. Vintage Delicacies

Long sheer dresses that almost look light nightgowns—we're envisioning these in a very Kate Moss-ian English Garden Wedding. 

5. Ralph Lauren Rustic

Suede fringe skirts, distressed leather boots, big belts, white shirts—this is heritage Americana at its most authentic, people.

Punky detailing + demure peter pan collar = a glam meets punk meets classic bridesmaid look we won't soon forget. 

9. Graphic Black and White

Stripes, prints, patterns, and solids—when considered in the same color palette, this seemingly random sampling suddenly seems perfectly styled. 

10. An Actual Random Sampling

We've seen mix and match bridesmaid dresses in the same color family before, but this group is genuinely all over the map. Why does it work so well? Because all of the hues are of similar vibrancy (and those gorgeous smiles don't hurt). 

11. White-Out

Neutral bridesmaids dresses are gaining steam this year, but a bridal party in all white is still a break with tradition. We love that this group went even further by opting for sleek, architectural silhouettes. 

12. Floral Maxis

Bold patten in a floor-length silhouette. Bravo, ladies—this is such a fun look for a more formal beach wedding.

13. Tropical Florals

Only two things unify this vibrantly mismatched set of bridesmaid dresses: pretty blooms and even prettier smiles. 

14. Stripes!

Unexpected texture in a classic silhoette might just be our favorite way to score fashion points with a bridal party. This rich velvet look is perfect for a glam cold weather wedding. 

16. Saris!

Love this colorful nod to the bride's culture! 

17. Color-Blocking

Solid sections of sweet colors are a slighty more quirky alternative to the stripes listed above. 

18. Pale Pink + Jet Black

This already-glam look amps up the Va-Va-Voom factor with short hemlines. 

19. Skirts!

The pencil skirt and blouse combo satisfies the dress code for conservative weddings, casual weddings, and modern backyard weddings—doesn't get much more versatile than that! 

20. Citrine

We've seen yellow bridesmaid dresses before, but never something quite this bright. When paired with Poppy red, it's the perfect non-conformist retro bridesmaid look. 

21. Blue Steel

This icy-cool color combo would be an edgy and refreshing choice for a downtown summer wedding. 

22. Choose Your Own Adventure

From the looks of this photograph, we're guessing that each bridesmaid was instructed to wear the dress they felt they looked the sassiest in. 

23. Cocktail Time

We're seriously digging the graphic party attire these girls donned for their friend's big day. Talk about dresses they'll actually wear again!
