Say yes to stunning Beach Bridesmaid Dresses!

Yes, you want to look like the princess that you are on your wedding day, and you do deserve all eyes on you; but considering that your bridesmaids are some of the most special ladies in your life, you should also try to outfit them in dresses that are flattering, fashionable and comfortable for a beach ceremony.

Do you have a certain color or style in mind yet? If not, don’t worry! We’ve done the heavy lifting and have rounded up a collection of stunning beach bridesmaid dresses worn at REAL beach weddings so you can begin to visualize the whole gang on your big day.

Take your time and soak in the inspiration! We’ve compiled a wide variety to help you narrow down your search for the perfect beach bridesmaid dresses.

Short Beach Bridesmaid Dresses

Short bridesmaid dresses are becoming increasingly more common, not just for beach destination weddings, but for couples looking to create a more casual and comfortable vibe with their attire. As you see below, even though each length is the same, you can mix and match dresses with different necklines and strap styles to create a custom look that fits each bridesmaid’s style and body type. Added plus – short dresses allow for you to really show off your shoe choice! And not to be captain obvious, but it’s usually pretty sunny and hot at beach weddings. Short bridesmaid dresses will treat your ladies to a cool ocean breeze that’ll keep them comfortable all day and night. Not only that, they probably have a fresh tan from the beach they’d like to show off!

Blue Bridesmaid Dresses

Long, flowing blue dresses that perfectly mimic the ocean are a classic choice for beach weddings. The way a long gown flows in the sea breeze really helps photos come to life. Plus, blue comes in such a variety of hues that there’s surely a blue dress out there for everyone. A deeper midnight blue comes across as a bit more formal, while bright aquas are fun and flirty. Which do you like best?

Dresses with Empire Waistlines

We love gowns with an empire waist because it flatters most forms. This style of beach bridesmaid dress has a classic silhouette that will flatter most women in your bridal party while providing some light support and structure with spaghetti straps.

An asymmetrical strap is a great choice if you are into creating a Grecian goddess look similar to the one pictured in these next two weddings.

Bridesmaid Dresses with Staggered Hemlines

If you’re looking for the perfect length and a little sass, this next style is perfect. Beach bridesmaid dresses with staggered hemlines will enable movement as your girls walk down the aisle or stand still and catch the ocean’s breeze. It is the definition of light and airy. This little number will stay out of the sand and provides a little sass while each bridesmaid in your party walks down the aisle. It has a beautiful sweetheart neckline and is designed in a light and airy material to keep everyone cool when the weather is hot!

Floral Beach Wedding Bridesmaid Dresses

I love that gorgeous and feminine floral prints are making their way into more weddings. Especially at the beach, where you’re likely surrounded by gorgeous tropical flowers and plants, it fits so well with the entire vibe. Floral dresses come in such a variety of colors and designs that there’s no doubt the perfect gown is out there for your gals. If you’re extra creative, you can mix and match florals with solid color gowns for a striking effect in photos!

Green Beach Bridesmaid Gowns

I’m not sure why, but green just doesn’t get the same love as other colors when it comes to bridesmaids dresses. But look at how stunning these ladies are! I love that in the first photo, each bridesmaid is in a different shade of the same family of greens that blend together for an ombre effect. Green feels like a great natural color to go with the stunning natural beauty of a beach wedding… and as you see, whether it’s a spring green or deep jewel tone, green just looks great on every skin tone and we love to see it.

All White or All Black Beach Bridesmaid Attire

Not supposed to wear white to the wedding unless you’re the bride? Says who? If you’re one to buck tradition, you might opt for an all white bridal party look. It’s crisp, clean, pretty and allows you to do so much with color elsewhere. Think of how much a vibrant bouquet would pop against these gorgeous white gowns?

Conversely, black bridesmaid dresses achieve a sultry, dramatic look that’ll turn heads. There’s something so beautiful and formal about a black gown that amps up the glamour.

Two-Piece Bridesmaid Attire

When I say there are no rules for what your bridal party should wear, I mean NO rules.

We love a mix and match look that allows each bridesmaid’s body type and style to shine, but have you ever considered a two-piece gown? You can play with style and color so much more when you’re working with so many different pieces. And yes, even pants made it to the bridal party. I said there are no rules!

Twist Beach Bridesmaid Dresses

Have you seen the twist dresses? I am absolutely fascinated by the tutorial videos that show the versatility of this type of dress. Whether your ladies prefer a halter, one-shoulder, cross-front, strapless or other look, you can achieve it with the SAME DRESS. This option will make ordering your dresses easy, while allowing each bridesmaid the freedom to style their own look.
