Deciding what you'll wear on your wedding day is a major decision, but figuring out how to dress your wedding party is equally important. Not only do you want your friends to look amazing, but you also want them to feel like themselves (and be happy with the new outfit you're asking them to purchase). Luckily, the top 2024 bridesmaid dress styles give you plenty of options that will look great for the wedding day and beyond. Rewearable bridesmaid dresses are still top of mind for 2024—along with some new trends you'll definitely want to know about.

"What we've been seeing year after year is that there are fewer 'rules' around how to dress your bridal party. For modern weddings, variety will be the driving force behind bridesmaid looks," says Grace Lee, founder and CEO of Birdy Grey. "You can't go wrong with a tried-and-true uniform look, but more brides are opting to mix between fabrics, hemlines, and really having fun with the palette in lieu of a matchy-matchy vibe."

As for popular hues and styles, neutral shades like "champagne, taupe and black" are going to pick up steam, Lee says, as well as versatile and simple silhouettes that can be worn again outside of the bridesmaid role. Because of this shift to wearability, we're going to see more "cocktail and evening wear satin gowns at weddings you attend and on social media," Lee explains.

But don't count out color just yet. "Barbiecore and Versace Pink took the world by storm this year, and I think that glorious hot pink is such a fun, celebratory color that'll make its way to the wedding scene," says Jessa Maddock, the founder, CEO and creative designer of JessaKae. "And textured bridesmaids dresses are everything—fabrics like velvet, tulle, and organza bring another level of interest to each dress."

Whatever you're in the market for, these five bridesmaid dress styles are a great place to start. Keep reading to get a first look at the most popular bridesmaid dresses for 2024 weddings, then shop our personal favorites for each trend.

On the topic of styles that'll get plenty of post-wedding use, mismatched wedding party gowns will still be top of mind in 2024. Why? Because it gives you (and your BFFs) the opportunity to pick styles that everyone will actually be excited to wear, all while creating a wholly unique look for your wedding day. For example, you can mix and match different silhouettes, prints, and colors, or go with entirely different dresses for each member of your wedding squad. The choice is completely yours, and we've pulled some inspiration for you to get started.

Pro tip: Choose ivory, beige or champagne-colored dresses or that are slightly different from the bride's gown, and be sure to mix in a few patterns or other embellishments, like sequins or embroidery, to add texture and dimension.
