Whether you’re a bride or a BFF, searching for a bridesmaid dress that a) isn’t wildly expensive and b) actually looks good on human bodies can often be an effort in frustration. But now we’re looking to Serena Williams for wedding inspo because she pulled bridesmaid duties (again!) over the weekend and wore the prettiest pink dress that was actually affordable.
Williams took part in her husband Alexis Ohanian’s sister’s wedding wearing a bridesmaid dress from Azazie. Trust us, you’re going to want to bookmark the shop’s page.
Azazie is headquartered in California, but you can shop loads of its affordable bridesmaid dresses online. We get it: Online shopping for your wedding can be nerve-wracking, but Azazie lets you order swatches if you’re feeling picky about fabrics or colors. Bridesmaids can also order samples to check fit on different styles. And as for those colors? Um, you can pretty much pick any color of your wedding dreams because most of the dresses come in upward of 60 shades.
The site makes it easy for you to choose a shade, then have each of your bridesmaids pick a dress that feels right for them. Sizes range from 0 to 30, but if you’re concerned about finding the right size, you can also send in your measurements for a custom fit.
And we don’t know who needs to hear this, but they have a whole section devoted to bridesmaid dresses with pockets.
Basically Azazie wants to make the process as stress-free as possible for you because you, bride, have a lot on your mind, and you, bridesmaid, have the more-fun bachelorette party to focus on.
Williams wore Azazie’s Kaleigh gown in “blushing pink.” Scroll through the too-cute photos of her daughter Olympia taking her flower girl duties seriously to see the gown up close.

See a few of our favorite affordable bridesmaid dresses from Azazie to get an idea of what the brand offers for colors and silhouettes.
Azazie Claudia in “Peacock”
PSA: This chiffon dress has pockets.
Azazie Loretta in “Lavender”
We love this high-neck dress because it’s a little different from traditional bridesmaid dresses. Depending on the shade you choose, the wide belt can be a contrasting color.
Azazie Calla in “Dusk”
Um, is it us or does this dress look like a glam red carpet gown?
Azazie Mikaela in “Daffodil”
Every bride says you can re-wear your dress, but honestly, they usually end up in the back of your closet. With this short bridesmaid dress, we can totally see wearing it for another summer wedding as a guest.
Azazie Hazel in “Wisteria”
If you want a little something extra on your bridesmaid dress (or maybe for the maid of honor), the Hazel dress has a beaded belt at the waist.
Azazie Mariam in “Sky Blue”
Whether you’re planning a wedding for next year or just planning a wedding in your imagination, Serena Williams’ Azazie dress probably needs a spot on your Pinterest board.
