22 Gorgeous Wedding Manicures For Brides & Bridesmaids

Unique wedding day inspiration, from seriously statement-making to stunningly subdued.

These wedding nails will give you manicure inspiration whether you're a bride or a bridesmaid.

Wedding season has very much arrived in full-force — and whether you’re a blushing bride or a supportive bridesmaid this season, you know that every little detail matters when it comes to the day of someone’s wildest dreams.

While many opt for minimally classic wedding nails that truly stand the test of time (ahem, ballet slipper pink polish), the ever-evolving world of weddings is welcoming looks that are a bit more statement-making and bold.

According to Pinterest’s 2022 trend report, their search data gives some insight into the minds of brides to be — and in short, it seems interest in dark details (think Kourtney Kardashian’s glamorously gothic vibes at her springtime wedding), the use of pearls, whimsical pastel hues, and pops of red are having their moment.

While I just so happened to opt for a classic French look at my ceremony this past May — I’ve gathered some major inspiration for every type of event you may be a part of.

From glittering, diamond French tips to rocking your loved one’s initial on your fingertips, here are 22 entirely unique wedding nail designs (with a few timeless staples) you may want to consider for your upcoming events.
