Choosing your own gorgeous wedding dress is difficult, but choosing a style that suits your maid can be downright stressful. Fortunately, the stars have the same work for you!
Believe it or not, our zodiac signings for us are our fashion choices. They can have insight into our style preferences very accurately, which is downright horror. Lucky for you, we detail all you need to know about the constellations, the main character traits of each, the bridesmaid dress is the best fit for everyone.
As the first sign in the zodiac, the Aries gal is a natural born leader who’s not afraid to steal the spotlight, but she lets her personality do the talking rather than her wardrobe. She prefers a closet full of cool, crisp styles that are fashion-forward without being ostentatious. For her bridesmaids, this translates to minimalist styles with a modern twist, with ornate fabrics and sparkling embellishments nowhere in sight. With its sleek lines and of-the-moment two-piece design, the Bari Jay BC-1703 is the perfect fit for the Aries gal and her main chicks.
The Taurus’ style is all about timeless elegance, so you can be sure her wedding party attire will be sophisticated and eternally chic. Ruled by Venus, which represents all things beautiful, this gal has an appreciation for romance as well, so her bridal party will most definitely boast some seriously flirty, feminine vibes. The finishing touch, so to speak, is texture. The feel of a fabric is just as important as its outward appearance for those born under this star sign, so expect the Taurus bride to be drawn toward eye-catching details and rich, decadent finishes. The silky polish of the Alfred Sung D538 peau de soie frock fits the bill, as does the intricate embroidery that bedecks the bodice of the Mori Lee 146.
Eye-catching colors, look-at-me prints and stellar statement jewels – nothing is too out-there for the Gemini bride! This gal is always up for a good time, and her fashion choices reflect her fun, playful attitude. For her bridal party, this translates to bold patterns, blindingly bright hues and unexpected details to keep the party poppin’ all night long. Forgo the plain Jane dresses for a printed frock adorned with watercolor blooms, like the fabulously flowing Mori Lee 21502, or opt instead for a style with a high-low hem like the Alfred Sung D699, which pairs perfectly with a killer pair of attention-grabbing heels.
The Cancer gal is all about nostalgia for an era gone by, so refined pieces with vintage flair are right up her alley. Her bridesmaid dresses should lean ladylike and elegant, but not stuffy, with modest A-line and sheath silhouettes and old world-inspired details, like delicate lace and high necklines. With its romantic floral embroidery and demure short sleeves, a classically elegant lace number like the Donna Morgan Alice is the perfect fit.
Fearless. Eccentric. Loud and proud. When it comes to her personal style, the Leo shies away from nothing. Expect high drama with a heavy dose of flair from this gal’s bridal party. The Leo bride is brimming with self-confidence and feels most comfortable with all eyes on her. So you can be sure that her friends’ frocks will reflect her own larger-than-life style. Intricate beading, extreme sparkle and stunning silhouettes are all welcome additions. For your own party, choose a heavily sequined number like the Belsoie L184065 for festive shine, or opt for a unique and unexpected shape, like the Bari Jay 1721 jumpsuit.
Unlike the outlandish Leo, the Virgo embraces styles that are simple and sweet, with plenty of feminine grace. This gal also has an unbelievable eye for the small touches that make an item unique. She’s drawn to styles that boast tiny intricacies, perhaps, even so, minute that they go overlooked by those with a lesser attention to detail. Like the other Earth signs, Virgos also appreciate fine craftsmanship and will opt for sturdy, well-tailored garments that will last a lifetime for the wearer, well beyond the couple’s big day. A bridesmaid gown like the Dessy 2970 is optimal for the Virgo bride, with sweet, girlish touches like off-the-shoulder accents and tightly gathered ruching for plenty of close-up detail and an ultra-flattering fit.
Like the beauty-loving Taurus, the Libra is also ruled by Venus and thus possesses a similar appreciation for all things lovely and exquisite. With a penchant for over-the-top glamour, this girl loves luxe embellishments, rich fabrics and all things shining and beautiful. She’s also unafraid to flaunt her femininity, and is drawn to styles with seriously sexy details, like a thigh-high slit or a deep V-neckline cut down to there. For her bridesmaids, the Libra bride should choose a style like the Mori Lee 21508, which boasts intricate patterns of stunning sequins from top to bottom, or the Alfred Angelo 7354L, featuring sumptuous satin in a mermaid silhouette that hugs each and every ladylike curve.
A water sign known for its depth and intensity, the Scorpio leans toward darker, edgier styles and isn’t afraid to veer away from the norm. She’s sassy, sexy and a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, far more comfortable in black and leather than ruffles and pastels. Her style is tough yet streamlined and polished, and she never leaves home without a killer pair of heels. The Scorpio bride can bedeck her bridesmaids in a similar style. Opting for an unfussy number that can be loaded with accessories, like the Gather and Gown Dallas, which can be cinched with a studded belt and paired with a chic pair of booties for serious rocker vibes.
This sign is ruled by Jupiter, the largest of the planets, and so those born under this sign do everything in a big, big way. The Sagittarius bride desires the most raucous party, the most gluttonous feast and a never-ending flow of wine and good cheer, all while wearing the most spectacular, most voluminous dress – anything less is just unacceptable. Her bridesmaids can expect bridal party style that’s equally over-the-top, yet fun, festive, and, of course, conducive to dancing the night away! The Sag bride should choose a style with a bit of bold volume, like the Allure 1507, a fit and flare gown with a frothy tulle skirt, or a playful print, like the colorful Allure 1440.
On the other end of the spectrum there’s the Capricorn, who appreciates a structured style with clean lines and architectural design. This no-nonsense gal is efficient and a real go-getter, always striving to reach an end goal and refusing to quit until it’s been achieved. She shuns lace and steers clear of frilly embellishments. Instead, she sports clean lines and unfettered fabrics, and she’s no stranger to a good pantsuit. Speaking of pants, she has no problem dressing her ‘maids in the masculine style, so a top-and-pants combo like the Bari Jay 1713 would be a welcome addition to her special day.
The Aquarius is known for being unconventional and even a bit eccentric – no surprise considering the fact that the sign is ruled by Uranus, which spins the opposite way of all the other planets. Normal is a bore for this unconventional bride, who isn’t afraid to take risks when it comes to fashion, whether it’s an asymmetrical style or one that shines as brightly as a disco ball. This bride would do best with a mix and match bridal party that gives her the freedom to incorporate a variety of styles, textures, and lengths. Try a bold combination of lace (Bari Jay 1716), sequins (Bari Jay 1715) and strapless chiffon (Bari Jay BC-1602) in coordinating color tones for an avant-garde look.
The token bohemian of the bunch, the Pisces gal’s style is romantic and fantastical, like something out of a dream. She’s partial, to long, flowing gowns and gauzy, lightweight fabrics, and can be considered a modern-day hippie of sorts. She shuns structure and architectural designs, opting instead for tons of draping and layers of fabric that practically float on air. For her bridesmaids, a loose-fitting frock with lots of movement is the optimal choice. This Bill Levkoff 1267 chiffon number with a blouson bodice is prim yet unstructured and breezy, while the floaty, fabulous Dessy S2977 skirt paired with the Dessy T2974 lace top is simply a dream.
Now that you’ve got all the pertinent information at hand, let your zodiac sign lead the way to your perfect bridesmaid dress!
