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.

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

Dress: Twobirds Convertible Bridesmaid Dress in 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.
