The bridesmaid dress has been iterated and reiterated hundreds of times, but no sartorial spin-off has felt more statement-making than the yellow bridesmaid dress. Yellow bridesmaid dresses manage to capture all the bright, cheery appeal of a wedding day, while elevating that lighthearted romance into chic, fashion-forward territory. Every yellow bridesmaid dress I’ve laid eyes on has felt at once runway-ready (or at least, runway-adjacent) and wedding-appropriate—the perfect blend of classic and contemporary style.

Though yellow bridesmaid dresses have long been a bold, statement-making selection, they’ve perhaps become even bolder and even more statement-making in 2019. This year, marigold yellow is among the trendiest shades to enter the zeitgeist, leaving yellow bridesmaid dresses—specifically, marigold yellow bridesmaid dresses—feeling even more elevated than they have in the past.

Of course, marigold yellow isn’t the only tonal variation on the menu. Brighter sunny yellows, washed-out pale yellows, and ever-so-slightly green yellows are on offer, as well. The yellow bridesmaid dresses landscape is incredibly vast and varied, leaving the seemingly untouchable, fashion-forward shade feeling more accessible than ever.
