We are used to seeing celebrities walk the red carpet in couture gowns, but sometimes they don bridesmaid dresses to walk down a different kind of walkway…a wedding aisle. Jennifer Lawrence, the Olsen twins, Sofia Vergara and Sarah Jessica Parker are just a few familiar faces who have stood by the sides of their loved ones and best friends while they say “I Do”. Even Lady Gaga has ditched her outrageous fashion for a demure, pastel frock. Here’s a look at some of Hollywood’s biggest stars stealing the spotlight in the latest bridesmaid dress trends.

Pippa Middleton’s dress for the Royal Wedding in April 2011 just might be the most famous bridesmaid dress in history.

America’s “royal family” got together in all-white ensembles for Solange Knowles’ Nov. 16, 2014, wedding to video director Alan Ferguson in New Orleans. Beyoncé is usually the center of attention, but she chose a simple curve-hugging Torn by Ronny Kobo dress for her sister’s big day. Queen Bey’s low-key maid-of-honor look is even rather affordable. It only cost $359! Photo Credit: NY Post
