Bridesmaid dress palettes come in many variations, but a few colors tend to endure. Blush pinks, fresh aquas and bright peaches seem capable of finding a home in any wedding—and any bridal party—no matter the season, aesthetic or setting. But when it comes to spring/summer events, one color reigns untouchably supreme: color. Which, of course, leaves coral bridesmaid dresses leading the sartorial pack once the weather starts to warm up.

Coral has long been a favorite among brides and bridesmaids, alike. But this affinity is even more exaggerated in 2019, as living coral—a particularly red-orange iteration of the tone—was named Pantone’s color of the year. Now, coral is not only set to pervade traditional warm-weather weddings, but trend-facing ones, too; its ubiquity is reaching new heights, and the coral bridesmaid dress landscape has evolve to reflect that. Now, there are even more coral bridesmaid dresses on offer than usual—and the dresses are aesthetically diverse, too. Some options feel more classic-conventional, while others skew more contemporary-chic.

One thing is for sure, though, there are so many coral bridesmaid dresses on offer—rendered in so many variations of the tone, so many different silhouettes and so many different styles—that it’s near-impossible not to find one with your name on it.
