Champagne bridesmaid dresses hold a special place in my heart. Because the first bridesmaid dress I ever fell in love with—the first one I could ever consider asking my closest friends to wear en masse—was a champagne bridesmaid dress. And it was cute as hell.

Champagne bridesmaid dresses are endlessly versatile. You can find one fit for any aesthetic, any palette, any destination, any group of bridesmaids. And they’re timelessly chic, too. Color trends may come and go, but champagne endures. Neutrals aren’t the kind of thing that fades from the zeitgeist once their 15 minutes of fame expires; they’ve dominated the sartorial ecosystem for decades, and they’ll continue to do so for decades to come.

Because neutrals go with everything. They complement whatever you pair them with—lifting up the elements they’re combined with, rather than overpowering them. Plus, they’re too subtle to get sick of. (Neons are fun, but—let’s be real—wearing them all day, every day for years on end isn invitation for a migraine.)

And champagne is perhaps the most subtle, the most versatile and the most timeless of the neutral genre. It’s not as bold as black, as bright as white, as earthy as brown or as (potentially) morose as gray. Champagne is warm without being too vibrant, sleek without feeling too sophisticated and dreamy without skewing too romantic. It’s the style equivalent of the “best of both worlds,” except it’s not just the best of both worlds—it’s the best of a whole bunch. And really, what more could you ask for on your big day?
