When it comes to searching for those dream bridesmaid dresses that not only suit all of your bridesmaids, but have everyone in agreement, the stress is very real.
In a recent poll on Team Hen’s Instagram we noticed that bridesmaid dresses (and where to source them from) were up there in the dilemma-department! So, this month we thought we’d bring you 10 bridesmaid dress brands that we know you and your bridesmaids are going to love, from labels who have got their finger on the pulse! And, don’t forget! One piece advice we would give you is to think outside of the box. Don’t feel you have to find one dress that flatters each and every bridesmaid, why not opt for a series of silhouettes in the same colour? Or, a selection of bridesmaid dresses in different hues that work splendidly together (we’re talking ice cream pastels or even different shades of your favourite colour). Once you move away from the traditional idea that each bridesmaid needs to wear the exact same dress, suddenly a lot more options land on the table!
#1 TH&TH Bridesmaids
TH&TH (which stands for To Have & To Hold) Bridesmaids have taken the concept of bridesmaid dresses to an entirely new level with their sumptuous array of truly ethereal, contemporary gowns. These aren’t just dresses your maids will want to don for the aisle, they’re bridesmaid dresses they’ll wear time and time again post-wedding too.

#2 Grace Loves Lace
Our love for the simple slip dress is still flourishing and Aussie bridal powerhouse, Grace Loves Lace has certainly tapped into this growing trend with the arrival of their latest occasion wear collection, Amavi. Not only are these beautifully crafted dresses ideal for all those up-coming events in your calendar, but your bridesmaids will absolutely adore them too. And, can we just take a minute to swoon over this collection’s colour palette? Featuring Moonshine, Olive, Gold, Dusk, Steele and Copper, it’s a total winner.
#3 Rewritten Bridesmaids
For the contemporary bride tribe, look no further than Rewritten Bridesmaids. Not only will your squad fawn helplessly over the sumptuous colour palette (that you can notably mix and match) but they’ll love the silhouette options on offer. From scintillating slip dresses, to their Porto one-shouldered gown and their achingly cool jumpsuit (yes, jumpsuit) they’ll be no arguments breaking out amongst the maids when you show them Rewritten!
#4 Maids To Measure
Conceived back in 2012 by sisters Sinclair and India Sellars, Maids To Measure is loved across the industry for their playful selection of dreamy bridesmaid dresses. Not only will your maids love the selection of flattering silhouettes on offer, but they’ll adore the brand’s unique attention to detail. From elegant flute sleeves to button down fronts and cool cowl back dresses, Maids To Measure dresses are designed to be worn post-wedding too, for everything from parties, to glittering black tie events and more. Plus, you’ll definitely want to check out their new Autumn Collection.
High street favourite, Monsoon’s bridesmaid dress offering is also definitely something you’ll want to consider this 2022 and beyond. Let your bridesmaids play around with their selection of Tracy Twist Me Tie Me Maxi dresses (£99 each and available in a range of colours) to find the silhouette that suits them best and they feel most happiest with. Or discover the brand’s S.E.W Sustainable Collection which features bridesmaid dresses crafted from more sustainable fabrics.
#6 Luna Bride
If you’re looking for sustainable bridesmaid dresses this 2022 and beyond, meet Luna Bride. Created by Keely Brightmore, you and your bridesmaids will love that all of the brand’s dresses and jumpsuits are not only handmade in Britain, but are crafted from fabrics that are meticulously chosen from sources that are cruelty-free, organic and vegan. And, we have a total crush on their Bridesmaids Jumpsuit in Light Pink (pictured above).
#7 Azazie x Pnina Tornai
Azazie has teamed up with couture bridal designer, Pnina Tornai to bring bridesmaids a truly decadent collection of bridesmaid dresses that they’ll undoubtably want to wear again. As Pninia’s debut bridesmaid collection, the line includes everything from luxurious fabrics, aisle-worthy silhouettes and an array of elegant colours your bride tribe will love. We particularly love the collaboration’s Luxurious Mikado offering (pictured above: styles Pnina Tornai PT101 10 and Pnina Tornai PT101 11 in Dark Navy, £199 each).
#8 Club L London
Dress your bridesmaids in Club L London’s glamorous selection of bridesmaid dresses and jumpsuit options this 2022/23. Whether they opt for different dresses (be it something sultry and asymmetric or a floor-length showstopper) in the same colour, or mix and match to fit your wedding day theme, the label has an extensive array of options for the bride tribe. Here at Team Hen, we’re fawning over this Olive hue featured on their Lifetime Olive Statin Cowl Neck Maxi Dress with Cross Back Detail, £85.
Coast just knows how to do occasion wear, and their bridesmaid dress offering is no different. With a gorgeous selection of long and short bridesmaid dresses available, with multiple neckline and sleeve options, in a multitude of contemporary colours and fabrics (hello sequins!), brides will breathe a sigh of relief when they see the selection on offer online at Coast.
