The bridal gown is undeniably the star of the show when it comes to wedding style. (Need proof? Check out these insanely dreamy wedding dresses.) But just as Bravo brides would never go drab on their own matrimonial looks (or cakes, or decor, or champagne trailers ...) they wouldn't ask their bridal parties to wear anything less than fabulous.
While cooing over albums from some unforgettable Bravo weddings, we've had the chance to check out how the brides styled their bridesmaids — and we must say, we'd totally wear those dresses again.
From the elegant, navy lace gown Kyle Richards wore to Camille Grammer's Hawaiian wedding, to the pale pink, halter-neck dresses that Melissa Gorga, Margaret Josephs, and Teresa Giudice donned Danielle Staub's 2018 wedding, we've rounded up the Bravolebrity bridesmaid dresses that give altar style a good name.
We've also done some digging to find photos of Bravolebrities standing up in their friends or family member's weddings. Wait till you see Below Deck Mediterranean's Malia White out of her yachting uniform, and in the prettiest, hot-pink bridesmaid dress. And speaking of hot pink, Kathryn C. Dennis made the chicest, boldest bridesmaid at her brother's big day.
So keep scrolling, relive some utterly romantic moments, and take style notes for the next wedding or party you've invited to ... even if that means dressing up at home to scroll through Lala Kent's feed when she and Randall finally get to tie the knot.
Kyle was a bridesmaid in Camille Grammer's 2018 wedding to David C. Meyer. Befitting the Hawaiian location, Kyle was a tropical-chic vision in a lacy dress with a bejeweled belt — and a white flower crown. Looking at the photo, one never could have guessed that there was some alterations drama behind the scenes (see the clip above.)
Teresa Giudice, Margaret Josephs & Melissa Gorga
At Danielle Staub's 2018 wedding to ex Marty Caffrey, she chose three RHONJ cast members to be her bridesmaids. Teresa, Margaret, and Melissa looked elegant and beachy in silky pink dresses with crisscross straps. Later — after her friendship with Danielle went south — Margaret donated her dress to a charitable silent auction. "It's caused some drama now it's raising money for a good cause!!" she wrote.
Pandora Vanderpump Sabo & Ariana Madix
We've already witnessed three Vanderpump Rules weddings that made us sniffle — and coo over gorgeous gowns. First, Scheana Shay chose Pandora Vanderpump Sabo and Ariana Madix to be by her side when she married ex Michael Shay in 2014. The 'maids looked gorgeous in pearly peach gowns with glittering belts and arm candy.
Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Brittany Cartwright, Scheana Shay
In 2017, it was Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney Schwartz's turn to tie the knot. The couple wed at a rustic ceremony in Northern California, and Katie had Stassi, Kristen, Brittany, and Scheana by her side. The bridal party wore silvery pleated gowns with plunging halter necklines and leg slits; they accessorized with metallic belts. Feeling nostalgic? Watch the ladies try on their dresses in this throwback clip.
Lala Kent, Kristen Doute, Stassi Schroeder, Ariana Madix, Scheana Shay, Katie Maloney-Schwartz
Brittany had her dream wedding at a castle in Kentucky in 2019, and her gorgeous 'maids helped bring the fairytale vibes to life. Lala, Kristen, Stassi, Ariana, Scheana, and matron of honor Katie all looked enchanting in flowing, periwinkle dresses with off-the-shoulder straps. They carried blue-and-white bouquets, and had their hair styled in braids and waves.
Heather Dubrow, Vicki Gunvalson
When Tamra Judge married Eddie in 2013, she had two of her fellow Real Housewives of Orange County alums in her bridal party. Heather Dubrow and Vicki Gunvalson both looked gorgeous in asymmetrical, pale pink gowns. "I'm 51 years old, I have to wear a bridesmaid dress," Vicki quipped in her video message to Tamra on the big day. But that didn't stop her from whooping it up.
Tameeka "Tiny" Harris, Phaedra Parks
The Xscape, Still Kickin' It singer and Real Housewives of Atlanta alum were both bridesmaids in Kandi Burruss' 2014 wedding. The 'maids wore long, white dresses that weren't all the same: The bridal party displayed different necklines and cuts, and some had a little bling. If the idea of anyone but the bride wearing white makes you squeamish, fret not. Kandi's grand entrance was impossible top.
Cynthia Bailey, Marlo Hampton
When Nene Leakes remarried Gregg in 2013, two of her RHOA pals were by her side. Bridesmaids Cynthia Bailey and Marlo Hampton looked stunning in elegant white gowns. Cynthia's was lacy with a plunging neckline, while Marlo opted for a slinky style with a halter neck. The ladies carried gorgeous white-rose bouquets. And lest you've forgotten, the bride wore gold.
More recently, Cynthia stood up in a longtime friend's wedding in Jamaica. The model gave us a peek at her flowing, pale pink dress in a 2019 Instagram post, along with the pink robe she wore while having her makeup done.
At Kim Zolciak-Biermann's 2011 wedding to Kroy Biermann, fellow RHOA alum Shereé was in her bridal party (and, as far as we know, she wasn't tardy for the wedding.) The She by Shereé designer dazzled in a custom white gown with metallic lace and intricate beadwork.
The Real Housewives of Dallas alum opted not to have bridesmaids at her own 2019 wedding, but that doesn't mean she hasn't been a 'maid herself. At her best friend's wedding — held just a week before her own — LeeAnne got to practice walking down the aisle. Her own French lace and Duchess satin wedding gown would come later; for this event, she stunned in a sparkling, pale-green gown.
Kathryn Calhoun Dennis
The Southern Charm stunner was a bridesmaid in her brother's 2018 wedding. Being the fashion plate that she is, the Charleston mama took her look to the next level, matching hot pink leather gloves to her raspberry-colored dress. She warded off the winter chill with a matching mink, and pulled her hair back into its signature pouf.
The Real Housewives of Miami alum was a bridesmaid in Joanna Krupa's lavish Miami wedding to her first husband, Romain Zago, in 2013. The bridal party wore matching gowns in a glowing shade of light blue, and the strapless bodices glittered with jewels. Relive the wedding here.
The Below Deck Mediterranean bosun was a bridesmaid at a Hawaiian wedding in 2019. Her hot pink, flowing dress matched the ceremony's island vibes, and she topped her look off with golden sandals and a dreamy braid crown.
Farrah Aldufrie, Sophia & Alexia Umansky
When Kim Richards' daughter Brooke Wiederhorn got married in Cabo San Lucas in 2015, her bridal party was a family affair. Kyle Richards' daughters Farrah, Alexia, and Sophia all wore long, petal-pink gowns with plunging necklines and leg slits that allowed for easy movement. Meanwhile, Kyle's youngest daughter Portia also wore pink for her duties as a flower girl.
