When we first being our planning process with new clients, we tell them two things. First, get started on collecting addresses and second, start looking for bridesmaids dresses. These two things always take the most time, no matter the wedding, destination, or bridal party size. Finding the perfect bridesmaid’s dress can be a difficult task! Selecting a dress that reflects the style of your wedding, fits all of your girls, and makes every happy is tough.



We love helping our brides choose dresses to best match their wedding style and make their ladies look wonderful. Every wedding is so different from the next. Should they do long or short? Matching or unique? Classic of boho? We love seeing how our brides decide to style their bridesmaid’s. Below are a few examples of past Rachael Ellen Events brides that knocked it out of the park with their bridal party styling!


Long, Simple Dresses



Our gorgeous bride Caroline opted for a simple, long grey dress which really allowed her berry colored florals to stick out. These ladies looked amazing in the understated hue!



This bride opted for a soft taupe to play into the romantic, natural feel of her wedding. The simple color allowed the blue ribbon to pop and the small berry details in the florals to really stand out!


Mismatched Dresses



Cassidy chose to have each of her girls in dresses that individually fit them, their personalities and the wedding. We love the way these soft blush and peach dresses come together to create one look. Mixing it up can be so modern and chic when planned correctly!



Another bride chose to mix up the colors and the dresses! This allowed all of her colors to shine through in her bridal party attire and bring out the colors of all the florals. We love this mix and the way it is tied together with simple blush ribbon throughout.



This winter bride opted for her girls to choose their own simple grey dresses! This is a great way to save on budget and ensure your girls have a dress they will wear again.


Boho Dresses



This bride opted in to the boho trend and we loved the way it turned out! Each of her girls are in different dresses and patterns, but all together it looks fit for a magazine! Mixing is the perfect way to go boho.



Our gorgeous bride Madi chose to let each of her girls pick out their own Free People dress for another boho mix and match. The overall look was so fun and free and perfect for her boho, mountain wedding.


Long and Formal



Katie dressed her ladies in long beaded dresses, perfect for her winter wonderland wedding! These ladies look elegant, classic, and chic. We adore this bridal party look!



For this formal black tie wedding, gold bridesmaids dresses was the only answer! The soft brocade print fit perfectly into the chateau setting and looked formal yet  perfectly romantic. We love formal dresses for a black tie wedding!





We love the way this fall bride dressed her ladies in traditional, short dresses. This style is comfy, casual, and great to dance in all while looking amazing all together! This look was perfect for her fall mountain wedding.



All white bridesmaids may be the most traditional yet! We have seen it from the royal weddings to celebrity weddings alike. All while is chic, classic, and totally timeless!



If you are currently on the hunt for the perfect bridesmaids dresses, we recommend checking out BHLDN, ASOS, Needle & Thread, and Nordstrom!
