Choosing Bridesmaid Dresses

By June 5, 2019November 18th, 2021No Comments

You’re getting married and your best friends are going to be there with you every step of the way – just like they have been through so many other moments in your life! It may seem impossible to get the recipe right; how do you choose bridesmaid dresses that complement your dress, accentuate their personalities and incorporate some of your own taste? More worryingly, how do you do that and still keep everyone happy?

Start with Your Dress

It’s a good idea to find your wedding dress first. This age-old tradition and defining bridal moment will be a focal point at your wedding, so while all the other details and outfits are important, they need to be built around your dress in a beautiful way that leaves everyone smiling. Having your dress will narrow the decision-making process when it comes to choosing the style, length, neckline and colour of your bridesmaid dresses.

Choose Dresses that Are Reusable

Finding bridesmaid dresses that are versatile enough to be worn again at other occasions is one sure way of winning some favour with your girls, especially considering that traditionally, bridesmaids pay for their own gowns. When considering the reusable factor, keep earthy colours as well as greys and blacks at the forefront of your mind. Keep styles simple with cinched waistlines, A-line skirts and sleek styles with simplistic necklines.

Make Sure Your Bridesmaids Look and Feel Beautiful

Some brides are nervous that their bridesmaids will outshine them. This is silly thinking ladies – it is your day and you are bound to shine the brightest! For the sake of your photographs and your friendships, making sure that your bridesmaids look beautiful will simply add to the beauty of the event and your day.

Consider the hair colours and complexions of your bridesmaids when choosing their dresses. Get their opinions on the dresses that you are considering and really take them into consideration – there is always a compromise to be found.
