How to Pick the Perfect Bridesmaids Wedding Dresses?

Easy Tips in Choosing a Dress for Your Bridesmaids

7Before choosing bridesmaid dresses for the big day, there are some tips to alleviate stress and make things fun for everyone involved. This is one of those items on the guest list where you may need to “let go” of your control a little, but that very action may just allow you to enjoy this process all the more. This will help you choose the perfect bridesmaid wedding dresses for your big day. It will be fun if you know what they would love to wear.

Don’t go crazy with color choice.

Yes, a bold color might pop in pictures, but that’s not to say that a more subdued hue won’t look equally as good…and it may actually look classier with a more understated choice of color. And don’t forget, with a color choice like black or another neutral color, your bridesmaids will be glad that this purchase will be able to be worn more than once.

Keep fabrics and styles simple too.

Your bridesmaid dresses should not compete with your own gown, so it makes sense to err on the side of classic styles and fabrics. One exception to this would be in the case of a theme wedding where you are trying to tie everything together around a specific look.

Let your bridesmaids select their own dresses for the big day.

Simply send each bridesmaid a color swatch and some general ideas about types of dresses to look for, and leave the rest up to them! Not only will they be able to shop within their own budget by having more options to choose from rather than having to purchase a specific bridesmaid dress, they’ll also likely be able to wear the new dress they pick out to other occasions in the future.

Use flowers to tie things together.

If you’ve opted to let your bridesmaids select their own styles of dress, elegant bridesmaid bouquets are a great way to create an elegant unified look even with the different dress styles. This is a fantastic idea that you can have in your wedding day.

Consider time of day and season.

If you are planning an outdoor wedding especially, it’s a good idea to plan for weather extremes or inclement weather just in case. Make sure your bridesmaids will be comfortable not just with styles, but with the temperature. You may want to consider shawls or wraps for the dresses just in case the weather is on the cooler side.
