7 Unique Ideas for Your Bridesmaid Dress ...

By Diana

Think outside the box for your big day and give your ladies unique bridesmaid dresses that really fit their personalities and go with your overall theme. Bridesmaid dresses that are stiff, shiny, and dull are a thing of the past. Dress your girls up in unique bridesmaid dresses that have a floral print, a vintage flair, or even have a crazy cut-out that is fun, yet still classy. Don’t be afraid to be different with bridesmaid dresses like the ones seen here..

1 Vintage Inspired

Vintage InspiredAre you planning a vintage inspired wedding? Why not go all out with a unique bridesmaid dress like this one that would fit your theme perfectly! It doesn’t get much sweeter than a dress with lollipops on it. Add an adorable bow tied sash and three-quartered sleeves and your bridesmaids have a dress that would make Betty Draper proud. You can find this one and similar dresses at Mod Cloth ranging from $50.00 to $200.00.

2 Cut-out

Cut-outSometimes a dress with a cut-out can be a little too sexy for a wedding, but this one from ASOS is fun and sexy yet still suitable for a bridesmaid to wear. Plus, not only does it have a cut-out, but it has an adorable bow on the back as well! Finding something unique is the way to go if you want to give your girls a dress that won’t sit in their closet just taking up space after your big day. Your girls could wear this dress down the aisle and later again to a holiday party or for a date night.

3 Polka-Dots

Polka-DotsThis may not be a print you want your entire wedding party to dress in, but perhaps mix and match your ladies in polka-dot dresses and solid colored dresses. It’s a fun print for a bride who wants to be bold and daring on her big day with bridesmaids who are just as so. Check out stores like Nordstorm or Macys for styles similar to this Eliza J dress.

4 Animal Print

Animal PrintHow much fun would it be to send your ladies down the aisle rocking to Katy Perry’s end of Summer hit “Roar” in this gorgeous animal print bridesmaid dress by Jenny Yoo! Believe it or not, this is a convertible dress that can be transformed into many styles including a halter or one shoulder. It’s a little higher on the price scale, but remember it’s more than just one dress, so you can wear it again and again without it ever looking the same.

5 Nautical Stripes

Nautical StripesThe Summer is almost over here in the States, but this lovely Calvin Klein maxi has me dreaming about going to the beach and living in this dress all year long! Can’t you just picture a nautical theme with bridesmaids walking barefoot in the sand, carrying soft pink peonies down the aisle? Maxi dresses are great for any shape and size, so I’m pretty sure all of your ladies would fall in love with the thought of wearing something like this. It’s casual yet chic!

6 Ombre…

Ombre…This style is so hot that you can actually find this dress in a bridesmaid or special occasion boutique in three different ombre colors. How much fun would it be to see a mix and match bridal party in all three? I particularly love the smokey effect of this “Twilight” ombre dress, which would look stunning for a snowy winter wedding. The other two choices are a daiquiri pink and a cobalt blue, both would look great for a spring or summer wedding. All three are by After Six from The Dessy Group.

7 Floral

FloralFloral print bridesmaid dresses may have popped up a few years ago however, the trend is still unique and not one that has become a big hit yet. Perhaps that's a good thing though, you don't want something you find unique to lose that charm. I love the combination of colors of this floral maxi, it's floral without being too "old lady" looking. Are you considering a fun print like this Adrianna Papell dress for your girls?

What do you think about these unique bridesmaid dresses? Are they too out of the box for you or not enough?
