Choosing a bridesmaid dress can be a daunting task — trust us, we know. With so many beautiful options and enchanting colors, the process often feels like selecting just one ice cream flavor without a tasting spoon. So, like generations of humans before us, we looked to the stars to find the perfect velvet dress for every zodiac sign.
For all you astrology heads out there, you'll want to take a peek at your so-called big three — your sun, moon, and rising signs — to narrow in on the perfect velvet dress for you. What bridesmaid dress will inspire adventurous Sagittarius? Which gown will hit sensitive Cancers right in the feels? Keep reading to find out.
We see the passionate, motivated, and ambitious Aries in fiery burnt orange. It's only appropriate for the cardinal fire sign to rock this rich candlelight-catching shade. The asymmetrical neckline of our Kira dress lends the Aries bridesmaid an air of statuesque, shoulders-back poise. What's more, Kira lets you flex those big Aries muscles you've been building in the rock-climbing gym.
Bridesmaids born under the sign of the bull know a thing or two about looking their best. Taureans are famous for appreciating the finer things in life — good food, beautiful places, and, of course, smokin'-hot wedding ensembles. We selected our emerald velvet Hannah dress for the Taurus bridesmaid for a few reasons. First, emerald is a color associated with luxury. Second, the flirty flutter sleeves, perfectly placed waistline, and sexy slit all make this one of our most photogenic dresses. Taurus bridesmaids will look good, feel good, and be able to show off their beautiful new shoes (obviously).
Gemini bridesmaids, see if this checks out: You're already looking forward to making friends with everyone at the wedding, but you just can't seem to pick a dress. They're all too pretty! Worry not. We're here to help. We're picturing you in romantic cabernet velvet. The modern cowl neckline and spaghetti straps of our Ash dress suit your curious and fun-loving nature. Ash keeps it simple without being the dreaded b-word (boring) and leaves plenty opportunity for wearing those fun new earrings you've been eyeing.
We'd bet big money that Cancer placements make up a disproportionate percentage of bridal parties, and that's because they're such wonderful friends. We picked this gorgeous dark sage number for the resident team-moms of the zodiac. Like our bridesmaids born under Cancer, our Hannah dress values tradition. And, importantly, our dark sage velvet is cheerful, because Cancer bridesmaids love love more than anything, and that's what weddings are all about!
Leo bridesmaids don't walk down the aisle — they strut. And our burnt orange Ash dress is just the gown for such an occasion. These loyal ladies will show up early to help set up the venue and stay long past the sparkler exit to make sure any leftover cake is properly packed. Leo bridesmaids will also appreciate that Ash allows her to keep her arms totally free to catch the bouquet, win any dance contests, and beat all the groomsmen at any reception lawn games.
Shoutout to all the Virgo bridesmaids out there — it's your unflappably high standards that keep your pals aiming for the stars. And it's precisely that takes-no-bull attitude that has us picturing you in our black velvet Kira dress. Black velvet makes a statement sacred to Virgo bridesmaids, and that statement is, "Yes, I know I look fabulous."
Libra ladies are known for their charm and their chill, so, naturally, we picked a dress that is far from fussy. Like Libra bridesmaids, Ash in dark sage is playful and ready to get the party started. You'll find these social creatures chatting up the Mother of the Groom or leading the Cha-Cha Slide on the dance floor.
Like their pals in Virgo, Scorpio bridesmaids will slay in black velvet. With our Scorpio besties, everything is deep —friendships, emotions, those borderline-eerie hunches. In fact, you Scorpio bridesmaids probably already knew we'd have you in the Hannah dress. Hannah is all about that deep V-neck and harmonious V-back.
Sagittarians are always up for an adventure and always there for a good time. For this energetic bridesmaid, we chose our most adventurous velvet silhouette — the asymmetrical Kira dress in gorgeous emerald. The Sagittarius bridesmaid is a free spirit, with a bohemian nature, and will always effortlessly accessorize anything she wears, so don't be surprised if she shows up wearing shoes that are equal parts unexpected and undeniably perfect.
Capricorn scrolled past all the other signs to get here, because she is very busy checking things off her life plan. This driven Earth sign is the queen of dreaming big, working hard, and getting what she wants. She is, perhaps more than any other sign, a red-dress kind of gal. And, because the Capricorn bridesmaid is 100% not-about-the-nonsense, we chose the Hannah dress, a no-fuss, bra-friendly dress she can easily wear again.
Aquarians are an enigmatic bunch. They radiate an almost untouchable glamor. That's why we picked our Ash dress in black. This dress allows the Aquarius bridesmaid to channel her inner Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Count on the Aquarius bridesmaid to glam up this cowl-neck silhouette with something sparkly.
Pisces bridesmaids would absolutely pick all of the dresses if they could. They see the unique beauty in each silhouette and wish to honor that. But if we have to choose just one, we'd select our Kira dress in lovely dark sage. For the Pisces bridesmaid, we love the combination of the soft dark sage with the artsy, asymmetrical Kira gown.
