4 Tips for Selecting Dresses Your Bridesmaids Are Sure to Love
Now that you’ve found your perfect wedding dress, it’s time to get shopping for your bridesmaids outfits!
We all know the torture of having to stuff ourselves into a dress that clashes with our hair color, completely washes us out or is outdated. The things we do for the people we love! If you’ve been through the same when you were a bridesmaid, now’s your chance to pick out bridesmaid dresses that all your best mates are sure to fall in love with!
Leave it to the bridesmaids themselves!
The easiest way of making sure everyone loves the dress they put on for your special day is by allowing them to choose it themselves! Your bridesmaids are likely to know what style or color suits them best.
But to keep your bridal party from looking like a mismatch of colors, styles and fabrics set out a color palette for your bridesmaids or provide them general guidelines as to the style, length, or fabric type that goes with the bridal dress you selected for yourself. Trust us; your bridesmaids are going to thank you!
One Dress Does Not Fit All
If you have ladies of different sizes and body types in your bridal party, it might be a good idea to stick to the universally flattering A-line skirt. Stay away from any risky styles that may not be appealing to any member of your entourage!
Keep in Mind Skin Tones
While you may really want your bridesmaids to all wear red like the picture you saw on Pinterest, it might be a good idea to rethink that if the color could end up washing out your redheaded friend! It might be your big day but your friends also deserve to look their best as part of your bridal party! Choose a color that flatters all of your bridesmaids, goes with your dress and also doesn’t clash with the décor for the venue!
Keep Costs in Mind
Even if you keep all the considerations in mind when selecting your bridesmaids’ dresses, there’s always the chance that one of your bridesmaids may not share the same style sense as you. If any of your friends are in a tight spot and wouldn’t want to spend thousands of dollars on a dress they’re likely to wear just once, it might be more considerate to go for a more affordable option.
