Though bridesmaid dresses were initially designed to keep brides distinguishable from their bridal parties, some innovative women have turned this paradigm on its head. Instead of embracing bridesmaid dresses in traditional shades—like corals, aquas, champagnes and blush pinks—they’ve opted for bridesmaid gowns that resemble bridal ones. Ivory bridesmaid dresses aren’t a passing fad, nor are they a niche interest. They command the attention of thousands of bridesmaid dress shoppers each month, leaving them feeling more like a full-on movement than anything else.

What’s nice about ivory bridesmaid dresses? Not only is ivory a neutral, but it’s a neutral that’s automatically built into basically every bridal palette—meaning it’ll seamlessly fit into anyone’s big day, no matter the aesthetic, setting or time of year. It’s also a universally flattering color. (If it weren’t, we probably would’ve dropped the whole get-married-in-white thing a long, long time ago.) Oh, and if that weren’t enough, ivory bridesmaid dresses are also veritably re-wearable. Sure, it’s probably not a good idea to sport them to future weddings, but ivory’s a far chicer color than the brighter shades that tend to pervade the bridal sphere. Got an office event, holiday party or fancy dinner on your calendar? Odds are, your ivory bridesmaid dress would stun at those occasions—leaving you turning heads without breaking the bank.

Given these near-endless benefits, it’s almost surprising more people haven’t jumped on the ivory bridesmaid dress bandwagon. And no need to worry—your ivory bridesmaid dress options are so diverse, there’s no chance of detracting attention from the bride.
