One of the perks of being part of Taylor Swift’s infamous squad? She’ll be more than willing to serve as your maid of honor. The singer’s childhood friend Britany Maack popped the question and Taylor stood by her side late last month decked out in a borderline scene-stealing Reem Acra.
Emma Roberts looked lovely in a lace-accented creamy creation as a bridesmaid at her friend’s wedding back in November. The pretty piece actually could double as a wedding dress for whenever the actress decides to say “I do.”
Paris Hilton played second fiddle to her sister at Nicky Hilton’s London wedding in July. This soft blue gown with an embellished belt definitely felt more demure than the heiress’ usual sexy style, but that’s the price you pay for being a bridesmaid.

It was a yellow strapless gown for Sofia Vergara when she fulfilled her bridesmaid duties in late June. Then boyfriend Joe Manganiello even attended, perhaps in preparation for their impending big day.
While the bad lighting on this Instagram image isn’t doing the dress any favors, Eva Longoria’s seafoam dress with embellished belt was picture perfect for her friend’s Spain ceremony.
Kelly Rowland, Solange Knowles and Beyoncé
The singers all looked white hot serving as bridesmaids for Tina Knowles' April 2015 nuptials. We don’t know whose crisp getup we like better — Beyoncé’s lacy dress topped off with a floral crown, Solange Knowles’ one-sleeve draped top and pants or Kelly Rowland’s cut-out one-piece. Of course, they all pale in comparison to the matriarch's stunning wedding gown.
Practically upstaging the actual bride (aka her assistant Jennifer Morales), Rihanna stood out in Hawaii in April of last year thanks to a plunging lavender Badgley Mischka gown.
George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin’s Venice ceremony in September 2014 was the social event of the season, attracting a bevy of well-dressed stars. Take Emily Blunt, who absolutely dazzled in this blue and pink embellished gown with keyhole detail.

Cindy Crawford also attended George and Amal’s happy day wearing a deep blue halter gown. The pleating and semi-sheer sections took this piece to another level.

There may have been a slight chill in the air near Venice’s famous canals, so Anna Wintour opted to cover her exposed arms with that feathered wrap. Her graphic dress was teamed with a flashy necklace and neutral sandals.

We have mixed feelings about Jessica Alba's look in New York City back in September 2014. While we dig the pretty pink dotted dress and complementary shrug, those chunky black cut-out booties seem a bit out of place for a wedding.

Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker didn’t share actual pics of the wedding party, but she did provide her Instagram followers with a peek at the berry-colored strapless gown she sported for her former assistant Melinda Relyea’s Connecticut ceremony in August 2014.
Alexa Chung had some fun posing at an outdoor ceremony back in 2014. Ever the fashion maven, she really made an impression in this polka dot Vilshenko dress with layered skirt.
Apparently, it’s become pretty commonplace for the bridal party to wear white. Cara Delevingne helped out at her big sister Poppy Delevingne’s wedding in May 2014 outfitted in an ethereal stark creation capped off by two-tone sandals.

Leave it to Brooklyn Decker to have a little fun at a ceremony. The model/actress sported a minty short dress and a funny face at a friend’s wedding in April 2014.
Poppy and Cara Delevingne
The stylish sisters took very different approaches to a wedding lunch for their other sister Chloe Delevingne in February 2014. Poppy really upped the drama in a textured dress with a trumpet skirt topped off by a draped jacket, while Cara simply paired her sleek black dress with a camel coat.

Jennifer Lawrence has scored her fair share of covers, but for this issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, the Oscar winner almost blended in with the rest of the bridal party. The celebrated ceremony was for her brother Blaine Lawrence back in October 2013.
