26 Chic Bridal Parties Wearing All-White Dresses
While the jury's still out on whether or not guests can wear white to weddings, white bridesmaids' dresses are totally acceptable. That's because the bride chooses what her attendants wear—if she didn't want them in the bridal color, she wouldn't have dressed them in it! Plus, it's actually common to see bridal parties in white. Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian both sent their ladies down the aisle in this classic hue. To further prove that your crew can pull off the look, we've rounded up some examples from real celebrations.
As with all bridesmaids' dresses, you have options when it comes to what your attendants step out in. Maybe you want the women to wear matching white lace bridesmaids' dresses, or maybe you want to combine two trends in one and let them choose mismatched styles. As these groups show, there are white options available for any sort of wedding, be it classic and formal or bohemian and casual.
These ideas also offer inspiration for the bride. See how different leading ladies chose to shine on their big days, even with their nearest and dearest in wedding white. Take this future wife, who wore a dreamy A-line wedding dress that beautifully contrasted with her bridesmaids' modern WTC Studio sheaths. Or another bride on a slide ahead, who wore a blue gown to stand out.
If these photos don't convince you that white's a viable option for bridesmaids (and bridal parties more broadly), we don't know what will. Now go ahead and get inspired.
