As any good bridesmaid knows, it's not about you—it's about the bride. And yes, this goes even for celebrities. While they're typically in the spotlight, these women took to the sides of their favorite brides to help celebrate their big days. Take a look at these star bridesmaid photos.

Lauren Conrad

For a friend's wedding at which Lo Bosworth was also in attendance—and one of her first outings since giving birth to a son in July—Conrad stepped out in a tasteful taupe gown.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

Mary-Kate and Ashley's friend avoided the mayhem often involved in assigning a particular dress or color for the bridesmaid's dress by simply telling her bridal party to wear florals. The Olsens, obviously, did not disappoint.

Rachel Bilson

No acid green gunnysacks here—for her best friend's wedding in southern California, Bilson was blessed to wear a pale pink off-the-shoulder gown over which she layered a cape. Hmm, wonder what she'll choose should she ever decide not to be #alwaysabridesmaid, as she captioned her snap.

Taylor Swift

Dressed in a stunning blush Reem Acra gown, Taylor Swift made a beautiful maid of honor at her childhood bestie Britany Maack's Pennsylvania wedding on February 20, 2016.

Congratulations @britmaack and Ben!" (Side note: Check out Tay's firm grasp on that bouquet there. *Hint hint, nudge nudge.* Your move, Calvin Harris.)
