Gardens provide some of the most scenic venues for weddings and offer a unique opportunity to have a little fun with bridesmaid dresses. They're the perfect place to incorporate color (be it bold jewel tones or pretty pastels) and print. In 2023, mixing and matching your wedding party attire is ultra on-trend, and garden wedding bridesmaid dresses are an ideal canvas for this concept.

Some pro tips for mixing patterns: Set a general color palette for your crew and let them choose their own gorgeous floral gown within that range; the variety of motifs will add interest and dimension to your lineup. Or, if your bridal party has a lot of members, choose a few ladies to mix in solid hues: sage, lilac and dusty rose—just about any hue with a floral name—make great unifiers. Consider the season for your wedding, as well. While garden environments often evoke images of spring, many locales offer garden settings year-round. Opt for subdued, watercolor pastels in the early spring, vibrant hues for summer and darker florals for fall and winter.

Ready to outfit your crew? We've rounded up 25 oh-so-pretty garden wedding bridesmaid dresses.

New flash: Garden wedding bridesmaid dress palettes aren't always pastel. We love the cool hues—deep purples, magenta, blue and green—showcased in this fresh style, made from an ultra-lightweight crinkled mesh material. The crisscross halter bodice and front cutout are design details as fresh as the flowers on the print.

It doesn't get prettier than this. Needle & Thread's English Rose ruffle dress has intricate detailing, from the perfectly placed frills to the delicate floral pattern. It's sheer in all the right places and—get this—made from responsibly sourced materials. We especially love that the style is available in mini, midi or full-length gown versions, so your bridesmaids can mix it up, or you can select the length based on how formal your wedding attire will be.

Size Range: 0-18

Eloquii Twisted Bodice Fitted Dress in Sweet Dreams

Garden weddings often evoke images of flowy, bohemian dresses, but we say, why not embrace something more fitted? This stretch matte jersey dress from Eloquii is a perfect example: It's classy and chic at the same time, and the petal pink hue will mesh beautifully into a garden setting. The geometric neckline and strong shoulder are modern details.

Size Range: 14-32

Greenery-and-white wedding decor isn't going anywhere for a while, and this garden bridesmaids dress will fit right into the timeless aesthetic. The ruffle sleeves and crossover bodice detail flutter for the walk down the aisle, and a detachable sash can cinch the waist. Inclusive sizing means this is a great pick for your entire party and—bonus—it's a super bra-friendly style.

Summer garden weddings call for more vibrant hues, and it doesn't get poppier than this bold fluid satin fuchsia from Amsale. The spaghetti straps, low back and front slit make this gown a chic, contemporary choice. Plus, the style is simple enough to accessorize: We recommend of pair of oversize floral drop earrings.

Size Range: 00-32

Reformation Sianna Silk Dress in Tarragon

Sage is having a major moment, and this silk style puts a floral twist on the trend. The off-the-shoulder silhouette has a fitted bodice, flutter sleeves and chic ruffle tier at the bottom; and, it pairs well with other styles from the label. The Veria crisscross halter is available in the same Tarragon print, plus a fresh blue-and-green floral if you're looking for a subtle mix and match.

Size Range: 0-12

Jenny Yoo Nova Dress in Lilac Mist

A super trendy cutout silhouette meets Jenny Yoo's timeless fabrication in this gown—rendered in a shade named for a flower, no less. The fully adjustable fitted halter neckline is offset by a slinky, flowing skirt cut on the bias. We'd pair it with a glittering necklace and jewel-encrusted heels.

Size Range: 0-18

Lulus Most Beautiful Day Ivory Multi Floral Print Organza Maxi Dress

Pro tip: If you're looking for patterned dresses that don't divert too much attention, search for watercolor-inspired prints; they're subtle and soft while still incorporating pattern. This one is made from a pleated lightweight sheer organza, over top of an ivory lining. The bustier bodice and sweetheart neckline are über-romantic details. And, if you're doing mix-and-match, it pairs well with solids in any of the hues featured in the pattern: pastel pink, champagne and sage green.

Size Range: 2-10

V. Chapman The Lily Dress in Blue Murano Print

What we love most about V. Chapman is the unique detail bestowed upon each dress: a wide belt in the same fabrication, beaded trim along a cutout and perfectly placed ties and tiers. With this on-trend multitiered style, it's the elastic ruching throughout that sets it apart. (And, the stretchy material makes sizing easier.) The print and silhouette are as feminine as your garden setting.

Size Range: 00-14

Kennedy Blue Eloise Dress in Primrose

On trend yet timeless, this gown has a one-shoulder silhouette and flowy chiffon skirt; both are airy details ideal for outdoor wedding bridesmaid dresses. It's available in literally dozens of hues—you can create a veritable bouquet with French Lilac, Wisteria, Violet and Peony—but we love the poppy Primrose pink. Plus, what bridesmaid doesn't love a dress with pockets?

Size Range: 00-32

As a bride, it's important to consider members of your wedding party who might be expecting on the big day. With Jenny Yoo's maternity designs, which coordinate seamlessly with her non-maternity styles, every bridesmaid will feel beautiful. This one features a high empire waist to make room for the bump and a chic square neckline.

We love the unique silhouette of this full cupcake midi skirt accented by crisp pleats. Both the silhouette and watery floral print exude garden party whimsy. Pair it with strappy sandals with a block heel, the better to walk over grass in. Pro tip: The organdy material has no stretch, so the label recommends ordering one size up—it's much easier to take a dress in than to let it out.

Size Range: 00-30W

Tired of the same old silhouettes? This kimono sleeve and wide waistband dirndl skirt combination is totally unexpected for bridesmaid dresses, and ideal for black-tie garden weddings. We also love it as a mother-of-the-bride option. Plus, the deep V-bodice is practically made to show off a glittering diamond necklace.

Extra long sashes attach to the bodice of this fun jumpsuit so bridesmaids can mix it up: The sashes can be tied and worn as a one-shoulder style, off-the-shoulder, strapless, halter and more. It's a great option for a large bridal party, as each girl can wear the bodice silhouette that suits her best. The pocketed jumpsuit is available in five shades of chiffon, but we especially love sage or dusty pink for a garden setting.

Let your bridesmaids bring the sunshine to your garden wedding in soft yellow. A pretty pleated material is layered and tiered in this high-neck look, which features a wide waistband and open back tied with a bow. Pair it with gold drop earrings or bold bangles.

Outdoor weddings on the border of seasons (think: early spring or late fall) call for bridesmaid dresses with long sleeves, just in case there is a chill in the air. We love this satin option in oh-so-pretty periwinkle, complete with a surplice bodice and flounce skirt. The blouson sleeves, fitted at the wrist, draw interest and add practicality.

Size Range: 14-28

Azazie Justina Dress in Marigold

A just-above-the-ankle dress length is perfect for an outdoor garden wedding: It's effortless and casual and lacks a train to drag through the grass. This one gets an update with a soft ruffle at the hem and a modern fitted sweetheart bodice with spaghetti straps. Azazie is known for its abundance of color options—this style is available in 72 hues!—but we love this vibrant yellow.

Size Range: 0-30; custom sizing available

This bold take on floral is a gorgeous option for mix-and-match bridal parties—it might be too attention-grabbing to outfit every girl in. The hot pink, rose-embroidered overlay and wide scalloped straps are unique and feminine details, while the short lining is party-ready for dancing the night away.

Bridal—and bridesmaid—style is all about texture lately, and this eight-tier tulle skirt has it in spades. The fitted V-neck bodice is pleated and anchored with a thin waistband atop the epic skirt. A high slit and skin-toned mesh on the deep V sides make the style super wearable.

Jewel-toned solids are a bold way to do black-tie, and make a stunning statement in a garden setting. In this formal stretch crepe style, the simplicity of the slip dress-inspired silhouette adds balance to the strong color. Just imagine it contrasted with a bouquet of pale pink roses or white orchids.

Size Range: 0-18
