Celebrity bridesmaids who can inspire your summer wedding style, from Nina Dobrev to Ciara


Celebrity bridesmaids offer style inspiration for your summer wedding, from Nina Dobrev’s strapless bridesmaid frock to Ciara’s LBD-garbed bridesmaids.

June traditionally is prime time for weddings. But you don’t have to go with traditional bridesmaids styles, as some of the world’s most fabulous celebrity weddings have shown. Get inspired with a glittering array of bridesmaids who stunned in recent years at star-studded ceremonies.

Nina Dobrev: Strapless sensation

Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev slayed during her first experience as a bridesmaid. Nina told People that wearing a soft pink strapless gown as bridesmaid for her best friend Julianne Hough’s wedding was “absolutely breathtaking and perfect.”

Takeaway celebrity style tip: If you want your bridesmaids to look slightly different from one another, consider keeping them all in the same color with different types of sleeves, including the no-sleeves-needed option that Nina loved.

Ciara’s bridesmaids: Designer LBD

What happens if you take the tradition of the little black dress (LBD) and merge the LBD with the DBD (designer bridesmaid dress, of course). You get Ciara’s bridesmaids, looking oh-so-chic. Ciara’s celebrity bridesmaids included Lala Anthony and Kelly Rowland, with the entire group gleaming in their black Michael Costello gowns.

Takeaway celebrity style tip: Don’t limit yourself to so-called “wedding style rules” when it comes to choosing the shades of your bridesmaid dresses. If you want a black wedding dress and want your bridesmaids in white, go for what you desire!

Kirsten Dunst: Flowers make the bridesmaid moment

Breathtakingly beautiful in her bridesmaid dress, Kirsten Dunst served up celebrity wedding flower inspiration. Dunst glowed in the palest of pink bridesmaid gowns, but it was her bouquet that took the celebrity wedding style spotlight. Her tiny bouquet of pink, green, and white flowers completed her bridesmaid beauty.

Takeaway celebrity style tip: Of course, the bride’s bouquet that traditionally gets most of the floral attention at weddings. Still, Kirsten’s colorful yet tastefully small flowers enhanced her outfit perfectly. Consider having your bridesmaids wear similarly pale pastel colors and then brighten those shades with small bouquets of assorted hues.

Sofia Vergara: Chic simplicity

Hoop skirts that Scarlett O’Hara would adore, bows bigger than the kitchen sink, and So. Much. Lace. If the era of over-the-top bridesmaids dresses with all those flounces flusters you, emulate Elsa in Frozen and “Let it go, let it go.” Let Sofia Vergara inspire you with the simple, yet sophisticated bridesmaid gown she wore at a friend’s wedding.

Takeaway celebrity style tip: Sofia’s soft yellow bridesmaid frock features a classic waistline and flowing skirt. No frills or lace are needed for that exquisite heart-shaped neckline, and we’re betting your bridesmaids will thank you for choosing simplicity.
