Being a bridesmaid comes with a lot of responsibility but it also comes with a lot of perks. Besides standing by your besties side as they say "I do" you also get to treat yourself to a new dress. Every bride is different with unique styles and taste and with a more conservative wedding you should opt for a modest bridesmaid dress. A modest bridesmaid dress doesn't need to be frumpy but instead extremely classy and elegant. Think: gorgeous cap sleeves and high necklines that combine sophistication and style. Of course dress code and season come into play with this decision, but generally with a modest dress you want to keep things traditional and classy.

From high neck ball gowns to tea length dresses, ahead find 24 stunning modest bridesmaid dresses for a traditional and elegant look.
