The color purple may not be the most popular color for dresses. But when it comes to bridesmaid dresses, purple is not one of the most popular colors. Imagine how beautiful it is when a bride with a beautiful white wedding dress stands in the midst of a group of bridesmaids in purple bridesmaid dresses. The bridesmaids would look beautiful but at the same time not take the focus away from the bride. To show you different types of purple bridesmaid dresses, I have compiled a list of gorgeous outfit ideas. Let’s look at that now.
Purple strapless chiffon bridesmaid dress
It is very typical for bridesmaids to wear short dresses. I think one of the reasons is to make the bride stand out with the long white dress, and second, it makes it easier for the bridesmaids to walk around and help out with tons of little chores at a wedding. This knee length dress has a timeless design. It is a purple strapless chiffon dress. You can wear it with black and silver open toe heels to complete this simple and gorgeous look.
Single Strap Purple Empire Waist Bridesmaid Dress
This purple dress with straps has a very interesting detail reserved only for weddings. The strap is filled with chiffon flowers and this is a beautiful detail that can only be found at a wedding. One thing I like about this dress over the previous one is that the one strap design is actually not as sexy as the strapless design. With strapless bridesmaid dresses, you have to make sure that the bride still looks her best. As the old saying goes, never outshine the bride.
Silver and Purple Chiffon Pleated Maxi Bridesmaid Dress
This is a one-of-a-kind two tone dress that consists of a silver sequin bodice and purple chiffon maxi bottom. The dress is not too sexy as the bodice is just av neck design.
Knee-length purple chiffon dress with lace sleeves
For a more mature look, consider this dress with a lace detail. It is another two tone dress where the top part is a lace bodice and the bottom part is a knee length chiffon skirt. The dress also has an elegant detail in the semi-sheer lace sleeves. Wear it with open white heels. This dress is elegant and does not require the bridesmaid to show much skin.
Purple maxi dress with lace collar
Here is another beautiful and elegant purple bridesmaid dress that doesn’t outshine the wedding dress. It is a purple maxi chiffon dress with a lace collar design. Wear silver open toe heels to complete this demure, beautiful outfit.
Purple Satin Wrap Bridesmaid Dress
This is a purple dress that the bridesmaid can make to outshine the bride. So make sure the wedding dress is on a different level than this bridesmaid dress. Either way, this is a satin wrap dress with a feminine ruffle element. The slightly shiny texture of the dress adds a lot of depth to the look.
Purple strapless belted midi bridesmaid dress
A strapless dress is usually very sexy, but this one is actually a cute one that has a chic belt design. You can simply pair this midi dress with gold open toe sandals for a beautiful and approachable look.
Purple bridesmaid dress with a deep V-neckline
When it comes to bridesmaid dresses, I tend to prefer those that have a wedding-related element in their design. As an example, this plunging V-neck dress is a delightful floral band design that leads into the empire waist cut. You can wear this dress with silver open toe heels and a crystal bracelet to complete this feminine look.
Maxi dress with waistband and lace bodice
When the wedding is outdoors, the bride sometimes wears a shorter, relatively unremarkable wedding dress. In this case, the bridesmaid dresses should be toned down a little. A gorgeous yet demure dress like this lilac maxi dress with tie waist and lace detailing is the perfect choice to make the bride shine.
Purple tulle dress with silver heels
Silver shoes go very well with a purple dress. This outfit is an example of that. It consists of a purple tulle dress and silver heels. To add an extra touch of beauty, you can wear a purple necklace to complete this beautiful and minimal outfit.
Light purple bridesmaid dress with a gathered waist
I love the idea of the bridesmaids choosing different dresses, dresses that are almost the same design but have slightly different cuttings. This gives the outfit a nice randomness and allows each bridesmaid to wear something that emphasizes her advantage and minimizes her disadvantage. If that special bridesmaid has beautiful legs, why not choose a high-split version of the dress?
Purple Strapless High Low Chiffon Dress
For a breezy feel, go for a purple dress with a high chiffon. Wear it with silver open toe heels and a statement chain to complete the look with elegance.
Strapless Fit and Flare Chiffon Bridesmaid Dress
This is indeed a very typical bridesmaid dress that features a strapless fit and flared chiffon gown. Wear it with silver heeled sandals and you will look beautiful and restrained sexy.
A strapless wrap dress
Here is an understated sexy dress that should surely say it wouldn’t beat the wedding dress. It is a strapless wrap dress with a slim fit. It can actually make you look slimmer and taller. You can wear black open toe heels to match the dress.
Dark purple chiffon tulle strapless bridesmaid dress
For a deeper look, you might want to choose a dark purple dress like this one. It is a strapless chiffon tulle midi dress. Wear dark purple suede open toe heels to add a chic touch to your outfit.
Here are some beautiful purple bridesmaid dresses I just shared with you. Whatever you do, remember the law: don’t outshine the bride.
