Planning a wedding can be fun, but it can also be stressful. If you don't already have a style in mind for your bridesmaids, you may be overwhelmed with the decision of what they should wear. And if you do know the style and colour of dress or outfit, there are so many options to consider.

Here are some bridesmaids' dresses that you might want to consider for your 2022 wedding. 

Chiffon bridesmaids' dresses

Chiffon bridesmaids' dresses are perfect for those who want to be comfortable at a wedding party. Chiffon is a fabric traditionally used in formal clothing, so it is no surprise that it is often found in wedding dresses today.

Chiffon fabric is lightweight and flows beautifully. Long chiffon skirts are ideal, so the wearer can dance comfortably and not trip on the hem of your gown. A cinched waist or a wide belt can make the dress look more flattering.

If your bridesmaids want to wear something 100% chiffon, you're going to need to find something that will hold its shape. The good news is that there are plenty of options for this. 


Lace bridesmaids' dresses

Lace bridesmaids' dresses are an excellent option for wedding parties. Lace can be used in various ways, from the sheath dress to a jumpsuit. Lace dresses can be made from different types of lace, and sometimes designers will use silk or chiffon in addition to the lace to create an even more beautiful aesthetic.

A classic choice for bridesmaids is to opt for all-black dresses with lace ruffles on the sleeve or patterns around the neckline.

Many brides choose to get their bridesmaids' dresses as gifts for their leading ladies, but if you want to buy your maids' dresses, it's essential to pick a style that will work for everyone.


Tulle bridesmaids' dresses

After seeing a tulle bridesmaids' dress, you may wonder why you never considered one in the first place. The perfect combination of old school romance and new age glamour, you can rest assured that your bridesmaid line-up will be the optimum mix of style and modernity.

Tulle is lightweight and soft to the touch, with added stretch for comfort and ease. A bateau neckline is very flattering, especially when paired with a statement necklace for utmost sophistication and confidence. 


Satin bridesmaids' dresses

Satin bridesmaids' dresses should be considered for any special occasion. They come in the widest variety of colours and styles, and they transition easily from day to night.

Satin dresses can feel a little heavy, so it's essential to consider that before buying. If you're having a summer wedding, you'll want to make sure your bridesmaids aren't going to be stifling hot in their outfits. Another thing to consider is that satin is a very formal fabric, so it might not be the best choice if you're aiming for a more casual and informal wedding style. 


Sequin bridesmaids' dresses

This style is ideal for the vibrant bride who wants something more fun. Adorned with sparkles, a sequin dress comes in all sorts of styles including an A-line silhouette to enhance your bridesmaid's figure. Plus, the hemline isn't too long or too short.

A variety of colours will satisfy most wedding colour schemes and the sequins will soften even the darkest of shades. 


It is good to see how far bridesmaids' dresses have come, with more options on the market than ever before. From the high street to designer options, there are a wide range of designs at every budget, with cheaper discount bridesmaids' dresses available. 

Brides are also giving their bridesmaids a say in the colour and style of their dress or outfit. And there is no better friendship than that of a bride who listens to her bridesmaids and makes them feel beautiful at the same time.
