One of the best things about having a summer wedding is that the season offers a fresh outlook on bridal style. Today, we are focusing on bridesmaids. You’ve known these ladies forever. They know exactly what to say when the stress of wedding planning gets overwhelming. With their guidance and support, you feel reassured that nothing can go wrong when the big day arrives. They are your girl squad. So of course, you want them looking and feeling good at your summer wedding too! From dresses to bouquets to accessories, here’s how to bring beauty, elegance, and fun to bridesmaid summer style.

Summer Bridesmaid Dresses

From oh-so-pretty palettes to flirty silhouettes to breezy fabrics, this season offers a bevy of gorgeous looks for your bridal party. A soft watercolor print paired with flutter sleeves is the perfect frock for a romantic garden wedding. Bohemian bridal attire gets an elegant makeover with a blush hued chiffon gown showcasing an understated silhouette. Bridesmaids’ separates featuring a white top with long flowing skirt epitomize summer’s effortless beauty. A stunning long column proves just why ruffles are one of this season’s biggest trends. An ankle length maxi dress with lace overlay evokes an air of vintage allure.

Summery Bridesmaid Bouquets

When it comes to choosing the blooms for your bridal party, look to the season’s natural splendor for inspiration. Complement a colorful floral print dress with a textured bouquet of white and soft pink flowers with greenery. A petite bouquet of lavender and white lisianthus, dahlias and stock with greenery is perfect for a farm-to-table wedding. A mix of verdant tropical leaves and vivid colored blooms is making our Hawaiian beach wedding dreams come true. Combine light colored greenery such as silver dollar eucalyptus and dusty miller with ivory and blush hued blooms to create a look of organic romance. The classic nosegay bouquet becomes a head-turner once vibrant coral and hot pink are thrown into the color equation.

Bridesmaid Floral Headpieces 

Don’t limit your bridesmaids’ flowers to just bouquets. A blush rose and greenery floral headpiece looks lovely on a loose updo. Adorn a natural hairstyle with a stunning flower crown in electrifying shades of yellow, coral, and pink. A pretty purple and white flower crown introduces a charmingly playful mood to bridesmaid style. And we absolutely love the look of a single statement bloom!
