We love a summer soiree, especially when it involves “I dos.” From the sun and the sand to receptions by the water, there are so many beautiful reasons to have a summer wedding. One of those reasons is all the stunning options for summer bridesmaid dresses!  

From punchy bright colors to fun and flirty florals, we are talking all things summer bridesmaid dress trends. Here are some of our favorite effortless summer bridesmaid dresses by Sorella Vita that your whole bridal squad will love!  

How Do I Choose a Summer Bridesmaid Dress Option? 

Summer brides, have no fear! If you need help finding the ideal summer bridesmaid dress style, we have you covered! Here are a few things to consider when choosing summer bridesmaid dresses: 

The theme of your wedding: When searching for the ideal bridesmaid gowns, consider the overall theme and vibe of your wedding. Long gowns in luxurious fabrics like crepe or silk are stunning for a black-tie event, while midi-length styles are fitting for a more laidback wedding. 

Consider the destination: Location, location, location! When choosing bridesmaid dresses for a summer wedding, the “where” is an important factor to consider. For an outdoor wedding, choosing lightweight fabrics and flowy silhouettes that breathe is ideal for your bridesmaids to be comfortable in the warm weather.  

Be aware of the terrain of where you are getting married.  For example, long trains and poofy silhouettes can be challenging to move in and uncomfortable for a beach wedding. Indoor weddings provide more wiggle room to play with fabrics and silhouettes. 

Factor in your wedding dress: Of course, your bridesmaids will be beside you as you say your vows and for photos. Make sure their dresses complement your summer wedding dress!  

An off-white or white gown is stunning with virtually all bridesmaid dress colors. If your gown has a nude underlay or a pop of color, you’ll want to consider choosing bridesmaid dresses that work well with your existing color palette.  

What Are the Trendy Colors for Summer Bridesmaid Dresses? 

While your choice of hues will be influenced by the factors listed above, there are classic summer bridesmaid dress colors that always make for a stunning squad! Pastels, bright colors and prints are all fair game regarding summer wedding style.  

Beautiful blues are fitting for a beach setting while mixing and matching bright pops of color and prints works well in a garden setting. For 2023 and 2024 brides, floral prints and subtle shades, like sage and bold colors, are trending. 

What Fabrics Are Popular for Summer Bridesmaid Dresses? 

For the maximum comfort of your bridesmaids, stick to light fabrics like chiffon and organza.  Jersey or even cotton work well for a more casual event. Silks and satins can be beautiful but not as breathable and show sweat easily—so be mindful of if your wedding is indoor or outdoor. While beautiful, we would recommend reserving velvet fabrics for cooler months. Look for fabrics that are breathable and light, yet flattering for all your bridesmaids.  

What Styles Are Popular for Summer Bridesmaid Dresses? 

When choosing a bridesmaid dress for summer, think light, ethereal and airy! Soft A-line silhouettes, flutter sleeves, ruffles and slits are all fair game. Summer bridesmaid dresses may also come in a midi-length, which is ideal for an outdoor wedding where wearing a full-length gown is difficult.  

Brides today are also mixing styles, lengths and colors for a fun and fashion-forward look. Don’t shy away from stepping outside of the box.
