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.

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.

Midi Length Bridesmaid Dresses

If neither maxi nor mini dresses are really your thing, there's another option for bridesmaid dresses in 2022 that we think you'll love. It's midi dresses—silhouettes that hit mid-calf or just below the knee. This in-between hemline is a demure choice that feels a little bit retro yet modern at the same time. It's also extremely practical, since your bridesmaids won't have to worry about revealing too much in a short skirt or tripping over a too-long dress. Some of our favorite midi dress styles? Velvet, slit skirt, and cowl-neck designs.
