Having your best friends stand by your side on your wedding day is one of those memorable moments that you’ll cherish for years to come. While they are off planning fun celebrations during your wedding adventure, from the bachelorette party to the bridal shower, you’ll find yourself making plans for them too. One of those plans will be around the style of the dresses you want them to wear on your big day. Before selecting the dress style or color, check out these seven new bridesmaid dress trends for 2024.


High-Low Hemlines

If you’re getting married between seasons or want to combine an elegant look with a modern twist, look for bridesmaid dresses that have a high-low hemline. This year, designers kept that hemline in mind when dreaming up dresses because it lets bridesmaids show off bold shoes and not have to worry about the dress dragging them around the dance floor.

Statement Sleeves

In 2024, a popular style that bridesmaids are opting for are gowns with statement sleeves. Flutter, bell, or even bishop sleeves make traditional dresses feel modern and give them more of a personality.

Mixed Textures

If you’re leaning toward not having each friend wear the same style, mix and match fabric textures. For example, some of your friends can wear chiffon, others velvet, and the rest satin. The combination of textures, whether in the same color or shade, will make your bridesmaids stand out in photos and as they walk down the aisle.

Big Bows

A popular way for your bridesmaid dresses to look elegant, without being too fancy or boring, is to have a statement element on them. This year, we’re seeing a lot of bridesmaid dresses with large bows on the back. Having that added detail compliments a more traditional style, but also gives the dress an extra bonus flair.

Convertible Dresses

If you’re a bride who really wants to make sure your bridesmaids wear their dresses again, go with the popular 2024 convertible bridesmaid dress style. Not only can your bridesmaids wear the dress however they’d like for your wedding, but because you can swap how the straps are tied, they can wear this dress to other weddings and events this year as well.

Halter Necklines

One popular trend this year in bridesmaid dresses ditches the traditional spaghetti straps and sweetheart necklines for a halter top instead. It’s the perfect style for a spring or summer wedding with outdoor elements. These dresses often look elegant, but they also allow your bridesmaids to not overheat during cocktail hour or the reception.

No Dress Code

As you’re browsing bridesmaid dresses, you might find yourself unsure of what dress or style your friends would like the most. In 2024, more and more brides are opting for no dress code for their bridesmaids. Instead, they are leaving the entire look up to their bridesmaids to pick, from the style to the color.
