Midi bridesmaid dresses are a completely underrated style! The shorter hemline (which falls just below the knees) can elongate the legs when paired with some gorgeous heels. Plus, midi dresses are more casual than floor-length gowns that are more traditionally chosen for bridesmaids. If you’re having a city wedding, barn wedding, destination or beach wedding a shorter bridesmaid dress could be a good option as they're a little more modern and a little more breezy! We’ve rounded up some of our favourite styles from real weddings in a variety of colours, patterns and styles!

44 midi bridesmaid dress ideas in different colours and patterns

Green Dresses

We're starting this midi bridesmaid dresses roundup with one of the most popular colours! Green! They say that the grass is always greener but you wouldn't be feeling like that when you're wearing a sexy and sleek or fabulous and floral green bridesmaid dress! Sage green, forest green, emerald green, we've got all the shades!

Pink Midi Bridesmaid Dresses

Now, if you're wanting something timeless and classic then pink is the choice for you. We just adore the short length of a midi dress in a pastel or hot pink colour! It just looks so feminine and chic. The colour pink actually has connotations of kindness, femininity and obviously LOVE! If your wedding has more of a neutral or black-and-white monochrome colour scheme, adding a subtle pastel colour like pink won't take away from the vibe you're going for. Pink midi bridesmaid dresses put a slightly more contemporary take on such a traditional colour.

White Dresses

When going for an all-white bridal party you may want to consider how the bridesmaids will look different from the bride! Going for shorter bridesmaid dresses (or alternatively, long bridesmaid dresses if the bride is in a short wedding dress) is an easy way to do this, which is why we're such big fans of this style. They're so classy and we're seeing more and more weddings with a chic monochrome colour palette that this would be perfect for!

Blue Midi Bridesmaid Dresses

Midnight blue, navy blue, sky blue, powder blue, dusty blue, all these shades make gorgeous bridesmaid dress colours. If you're stuck on what shade to choose for the dresses you could go for multiple colours, let your bridal party take a vote on the shade they prefer or base it on your wedding theme. Personally, we're big fans of blue for coastal or beach weddings (obviously) but also for adding a refreshing take on a traditional country house wedding by adding in something blue through your bridal party.

Orange Dresses

As we've said earlier, a midi-style dress actually makes you appear taller as the hemline sits just below your knees. When paired with a shade of orange, your bridal party will be smoking hot! Orange is simply a shade that looks good on everyone! It suits a wide variety of skin tones and hair colours and in this style, all your bridal party will be feeling confident and ready to pose for your wedding photos.

Satin Midi Bridesmaid Dresses

Sexy, sleek and radiant? If that sounds like the vibes you want for your bridal party, then satin dresses are the way to go! These dresses look literally amazing in any shade but our personal fave is a metallic colour! A champagne gold paired with the natural sheen from the satin fabric would make your bridal party glow from the outside as well as from within! Take a look to see how these bridesmaids wore their dresses!

Patterned/Mismatched Dresses

Maybe you're thinking you want something a bit more unique to your day and your personal style. If so, going for patterned midi dresses is the way forward! Go for some polka dots, a floral pattern, or some pretty embellishments! Or we're also big fans of mismatched dresses because they do all this while also showing off the bridesmaid's own individual personalities too! There's nothing better than putting on a dress and pair of shoes you feel like a million dollars in, so give your bridesmaids the best experience on your big day with dresses they actually feel confident in!

A midi dress makes you appear taller and elongated with the hem falling just below the knee!
