I’ve long appreciated the value of the gray bridesmaid dress, the champagne bridesmaid dress and even the black bridesmaid dress. But sequin bridesmaid dresses were a thing that, honestly, perplexed me until I sat down to work on this article. Because sequin dresses evoke images of New Year’s Eve, of extra AF nights out, of clubs and parties and Vegas. The pieces that come to mind when I hear sequin anything are completely inappropriate for most formal occasions—let alone weddings.

But as I began researching for this story, my mindset proved to be totally myopic. Because not only are solid sequin gowns available in an array of distinctly bridal colors (lavenders, blushes, aquas and baby pinks), but solid sequin gowns aren’t even the only kind of sequin dress on the market. There are gowns that are merely flecked with sequins, dresses that are adorned with delicate sequin embroidery and ruffled pieces featuring tiers of sparkle.

There’s a wide array of sequin bridesmaid dresses (and sequin anything dresses) available to us all. And the best part? The sequin dresses I’ve come across are, on the whole, bridesmaid-appropriate without being bridesmaid-exclusive; they’re fit for a wedding and totally re-wearable. Sequin bridesmaid dresses are, basically, the solution to the age-old dilemma of heinous, waste-of-money bridesmaid dresses you can never wear again.

I’m not kidding—I’m not getting married any time soon, and I’ve already bookmarked a ton of the sequin bridesmaid dresses I’ve stumbled upon. Why? Because they’re so damn cute I want to wear them to parties.

In the process of writing this article, I became a full-on sequin bridesmaid dresses convert. And after scrolling through my findings, you might just turn into one, too.
