Something old, something new, something borrowed … you know how the saying goes!
In that age-old bridal rhyme, the “something blue” stands for love, purity, and fidelity. And while we’ve seen many stylish brides opt for blue bouquets or blue shoes, the color blue — particularly light blue — is such a pretty hue that we love it for bridesmaid dresses, too!
Thinking about light blue bridesmaid dresses for your bridal party?
Check out these stunning options, plus some tips on how to choose the perfect shade.
Jenny Yoo: Whisper Blue
Whisper Blue from Jenny Yoo is aptly named. It’s so pale and so soft that it truly feels like a breath of fresh air.
Because Jenny Yoo makes so many beautiful silhouettes, choose this blue if you want to mix and match your bridal party in the same color but different dress styles.
A combination of halter necklines, V-necks, and strapless tops in flattering A-line gowns ensures one thing:
Your girls will look amazing.
From tea-length options to full-length designs, Dessy makes their Cloudy hue in a variety of different silhouettes. This shade of blue is light but not too light, so it’s easy to coordinate with groomsmen wearing black tuxedos or suits in grey or navy blue.
Whether you’re into pleats, ruffles, or open backs, every dress looks incredible in Dessy’s Cloudy!
Dress: Dessy 3062 in Mist Crepe
Getting married on the beach? We can’t think of a better light blue option for a summer wedding on the sand than Dessy’s Mist.
Available in a variety of full-length designs and midi dresses, this pale blue hue is flattering on every skin tone.
But this color isn’t just for beach weddings — it’s perfect for any type of event!
Debating between dressing your girls in chiffon, crepe, or matte satin? Dessy color swatches are readily available in various fabrics. Pick up a few swatches and view them in different types of lighting to help you narrow down your fabric choices.
Jenny Yoo: Serenity Blue/Mayan Blue
Create a gorgeous blue-on-blue bridal party by mixing and matching Jenny Yoo’s shades of Serenity Blue and Mayan Blue. Available in tulle, chiffon, and other fabrics, these shades pair perfectly if you’re on the fence about light blue or dusty blue bridesmaid dresses.
With these shades paired together, you don’t have to make the decision — you can enjoy them both!
Pleated, trimmed with ruffles, or detailed with flutter sleeves, this color combo works in any season.
Joanna August: Morning Dew
Morning Dew from Joanna August is a classic shade of sky blue. A group wearing long bridesmaid dresses in this shade means one thing:
This color is pale, soft, and romantic. It gives off all the feels that most couples want to exude on their wedding day!
Dresses: Various Dessy styles in Larkspur Crepe
Like many bridal designers, Dessy offers various shades of light blue. Their Larkspur option is perfect for the couple getting married in the early spring or fall. It’s more of a medium tone than a light tone, but it still emits the vibe and sense of romance that ultra-pale blues do.
A floor-length, off-the-shoulder crepe gown with a trumpet skirt is an elegant choice. Go with this color (and this dress) if you’re looking to bridge the gap between traditional, modern, and chic.
Twobirds: Light Blue
There’s nothing more versatile than a convertible dress that can be worn more than a dozen different ways.
Twobirds makes a soft and comfortable jersey version of their classic convertible dress in the perfect shade of light blue.
Turn it into a high neck, a one-shoulder, or a backless design with a T-strap. Criss-cross the straps, create cap sleeves, or go for a full open-back look. Make it a sleeveless V-neck, or turn it into a short sleeve silhouette for more coverage.
This is one of our favorite choices if you’re looking to dress every girl in the wedding party in her own unique way.
Dress: Amsale Sonia in Ice
Ready to channel your inner Elsa? Bring some major frozen ice castle vibes to your wedding day with Amsale’s Ice hue. Perfect for a summer wedding, a spring celebration, or a December wedding with a winter wonderland theme, this shade is as pale and as pretty as it gets.
From strapless maxi dresses to knee-length halters with open backs, this shade of light blue is timeless, gorgeous, and easy to incorporate into any wedding celebration.
This pale, light blue is super soft and ultra-romantic. Despite its name, it’s the opposite of icy.
Cloud is another gorgeous blue option for your big day.
This v-neckline with a scoop back offers spaghetti straps with ruffled bodice and contains beautiful printed clouds.
