Ivory, White or Cream Dresses for Bridesmaids
White bridesmaid dresses give a clean, ethereal, soft style for a white or ivory wedding color scheme!
White and Off White Dresses
White, ivory, or cream bridesmaid dresses can give an crisp and elegant look to a white wedding color scheme!
I'll never forget when I first started planning my own wedding, my father gave me a wedding planning book that featured a cover image of bridesmaids all in white! It was beautiful, but I had to admit before I saw that image I had never thought of dressing my bridal party in all white! My understanding is that this is a trend that was made popular in some Southern US weddings - and now it has gained more worldwide popularity! IT seems to be an emerging trend for 2018 weddings, and we love the look! The reasons are clear - it's an ethereal, clean and lovely look! Now, I've seen it on many blogs and in other weddings, and its a timeless style! Here are resources for finding white bridesmaid dresses for your wedding! And here's one of my favorite tips: even if you aren't planning on having your bridal party wear white, dresses that are marketed as white bridesmaid dresses can be a great way to find a white dress to wear to your wedding or for wedding-related events!

Shop the Look
- For a rustic wedding --or perhaps even a beach wedding -- I love the look of bridesmaids all in short white lace dresses. Add heels or dressy booties for rustic weddings, or beach wedding sandals for beach weddings, and you'll have a great look!
- For a chic formal wedding, sleek white gowns are grand! It looks great if the bridesmaids gowns have clean lines or super simple, perhaps setting off a bride who may be wearing a more intricate gown. I love the Madison Dress, Legacy Dress, or the Jones Dress from BHLDN for this look!
- If you're not sure that you want a stark white dresses for your bridal party, try cream or a floral print on a white background, or a beaded white gown. Try print from Jenny Yoo!
- Pick dresses that differ from the brides gown, but complement it in some way - maybe the bridesmaid dresses have the same neckline, but a simple, straight skirt, or perhaps the neckline, or length varies from the bridal gown.
- For a boho wedding try thses breezy styles from Show Me Your Mumu.
- White dresses in a mix of textures and fabrics are also great for the mismatched bridesmaid look!
- If you don't want white bridesmaid dresses, but you DO want a reasonably priced wedding dress for yourself, shopping for dresses labeled as white bridesmaid dresses, can be a great money saver! You can find a simple white gown for under $200, that will certainly work for wedding dress too! I especially like the selections at Dessy and BHLDN for this purpose!
