Floral Print Bridesmaid Dresses
For maximum romantic vibes on your special day (as if it won't already be romantic enough), floral print bridesmaid dresses are the answer. Prints and patterns have long been worn by maids of honor to stand out from the rest of the wedding party, but when it comes to 2022 bridesmaid dress trends, the idea is to outfit your entire crew in a sea of floral motifs. Have everyone wear the same dress if you want a more classic look, or mix and match floral patterns for a boho, whimsical effect—just be sure to keep the prints in the same general color family.
Pale blue and white is a classic color combination for spring and summer weddings. This flowy style features a pretty bow detail at the waist for extra charm.

Neutral Color Bridesmaid Dresses
Gone are the days where the color white (and its similar counterparts) is reserved solely for whoever's wearing a wedding dress. It's your wedding, which means you can opt to break this tradition by dressing your bridesmaids in an assortment of neutral colors, like taupe, eggshell, ivory, and champagne. The end result is an airy, fresh look for your wedding party—and you'll be right on par with one of the top bridesmaid dress trends for 2022.

Velvet, slit skirt, and cowl-neck designs.
