Couples marrying in a formal setting, like a house of worship or ballroom venue, should opt for classic bridesmaid dresses. These types of styles pair well with a traditional wedding style because they feature timeless details, like modest necklines or subtle lace. Classic bridesmaid dresses also usually stick to a neutral or softer color scheme, rather than something trendy or vibrant, to ensure they never go out of style. So, if you’re planning an elegant celebration and want your ‘maids to match, you’re in luck. We’ve teamed up with David’s Bridal and compiled our favorite classic bridesmaid dresses.

These classic bridesmaid dresses will definitely stand the test of time.
