When it comes to choosing bridesmaid dresses, it’s not all about focusing on the right color for your ladies. With the silhouettes of bridesmaid dresses continuing to evolve, as well as the rise of separates, it’s time to expand your options with beaded designs.

Beaded bridesmaid dresses are not only glamorous, they are also practical; your bridesmaids can wear them again!

The sequins and beading on this nude dress are subtle, but the details ensure that it will stand out without being too bold.


A rich jewel-tone dress looks gorgeous with some bead work and an open back.


For an Art Deco wedding, these embellished dresses are a modern take on the Flapper dress.


Beaded dresses have an air of formality to them, especially in the longer lengths. If this doesn’t work for your wedding, then short dresses look equally as fab.


It goes without saying that beading and sequins look great on metallic dresses, so look out for gold, silver and pewter styles.


Gray bridesmaid dresses are not only effortlessly stylish, but also work well with so many decor color palettes.


We love that the beading on this dress continues on to the gorgeous fluted sleeves.


To break up the embellishment you can also have a few of your bridesmaids wearing plain dresses with statement necklaces.


If you’re concerned about short bridesmaid dresses looking too casual, then go for dresses that have plenty of beadwork. Dresses that are only beaded on the top won’t feel too overwhelming but they can really transform the style.
