Bride-to-be Lady Gaga took a break from her own wedding planning with fiance Taylor Kinney to be a bridesmaid in her best friend's wedding this weekend! Mother Monster stood by her high school pal's side in a gorgeous lavender chiffon floor-length bridesmaid dress and held a bouquet of pastel-colored florals for the New Orleans nuptials. Gaga accessorized with pink heels, her massive heart-shaped engagement ring and surprisingly minimal makeup and hair styling.

She documented the wedding weekend with several sweet Instagram posts, including one with her ring and wedding heels, and another where you can see her peeping out from behind a door that the bride is walking out of (wearing a beautiful lace wedding dress!).

"Watching your best friend get married, these are the specialist times in my life. Seeing happiness in the lives of all my friends."

If she can rock a pastel bridesmaid dress and indescribably-intricate stage costumes equally well, there's no telling what Gaga has up her sleeve for her own wedding day! Maybe she'll surprise us all and wear a classic wedding dress for the ceremony -- but all bets are off for the reception and after-party.
