A bridesmaid was born (we had to) when Lady Gaga served as a bridesmaid to her longtime makeup artist, Sarah Nicole Tanno. She gave pretty in pink a whole new meaning.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

Mary-Kate and Ashley's friend avoided the mayhem often involved in assigning a particular dress style or color for her bridesmaids 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.

Kate and Pippa Middleton

In video obtained by the Daily Mail, the Duchess of Cambridge, then 9, and her sister, then 7, can be seen acting as (somewhat fidgety) bridesmaids at their uncle Gary Goldsmith and Miranda Foote's 1991 wedding. Pippa apparently knew what was up with flower crowns...even then.

Emily Ratajkowski

The actress wore a bell-sleeved mini-dress for her friend's wedding, captioning the photo she posted to Instagram with a simple: "Bridesmaids." If only all bridesmaids dresses could be so on-trend.

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!"

Rihanna has been in the tropical island to celebrate with her friends and was seen sipping on champagne seaside the day before the big wedding.
