The best bridesmaid dresses are cute, comfortable, and simple enough to let the bride shine. When tennis great Serena Williams appeared at her sister-in-law’s wedding, she wore a pale teal dress that, apparently, retails for a grand total of $129. Serena was able to add her own personal touch to the look with some comfy sneakers that no doubt made her queen of the dance floor.
According to everyone who was there, however, it was Serena’s daughter who stole the show — the two-year-old flower girl matched her mom and took her job quite seriously, making her mama proud.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
It seems like it's impossible for these two child stars to be separate in anything. For their friend Cassie Coane's wedding, both twins appeared as bridesmaids — though it seems like they didn't have a choice since there were a total of eighteen bridesmaids. That must be some kind of record, right?
The private ceremony in the Hudson Valley in New York must have been packed. There were plenty more it-girls present at the bridal party, who all got to pick their own bridesmaids' dresses, granting at least a floral theme. They weren't your typical dresses – Mary-Kate chose a kimono frock, and Ashley wore a black and white flowing dress.
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Gellar and her husband, Freddie Prinze Jr., are still going strong, but Sarah has had another chance to take on the wedding aisle when she appeared as a bridesmaid for her friend's wedding in Santa Monica. The knee-length pink frock is certainly a little less fancy than some of the other bridesmaid dresses on this list, but it still looks great.
Gellar's first date with her husband was actually an accident — they were to meet some mutual friends for dinner, but the friends never showed up. Sarah and Freddie went on their own, and it's been true love ever since.
While Cara is quite okay with strutting her stuff when it comes to the catwalk, being a bridesmaid is a bit different. In 2014, she appeared at her older sister's wedding to Edward Grant. Wearing a simple-yet-elegant navy blue dress and a messy bun, she looked good enough to make her sister proud. The chilly day required a little more clothing at a few moments, so she added a large tan coat when needed.
When her other sister, Poppy, got married, Cara went for something unconventional with a light, white dress that somehow didn't outshine the bride.
She played the fool as a bachelorette in the movies, but this actress is always ready to be a sweet part of someone's wedding. She was a bridesmaid for her childhood friend Cindy McGee in 2017, which took place in Italy. The blushed pink gown she wore was pretty without being too pretty, and she complimented it with a small bouquet of green, white, and light pink flowers.
She and Cindy were quite close — Kirsten's parents even flew overseas for the event. It's possible McGee will be a part of Dunst's wedding to "Fargo" co-star Jesse Plemons, whom she started dating in 2016.
