There are too many articles out there claiming that this is what a bride's best girls want to wear; and to be honest, we really don't like any of them. So read on for a modern take on how to make your maids happy, while also having a stellar bridal party look.
1) Black is for new beginnings
Easily said and done is the all-black wedding party. The outfits are easy to re-wear, classic and you know everyone will be happy.

2) Sometimes separate is better than together
This is a look your squad can mix and match for years to come; whether your maid pairs the top with a pair of jeans for a night out or the skirt for Sunday brunch.

3) Jumpsuits- because you've got things to do
For the bridesmaid that just wants to do a high kick in the air or attempt the splits without any wardrobe malfunctions. Plus, this look is absolutely chic and re-wearable (and can be easily altered into a romper!!!).

5) White isn't just for the bride
If anyone asks, just say it's to ward off evil spirits. You aren't lying anyways. Besides, you will all look super minimal and on-point.

6) Whatever they damn-well please
Whether you stick with a colour palette, a fabric or throw all the antics out the window and let your girls be free: the mismatched look is the most drama-free of them all and you can guarantee your photographs will be cookie-cutter free, too.
