Remember to have their tastes and styles in mind. After all, even the best photographer cannot get rid of the look of discomfort on the faces of your bridal party. Here are some rules to follow for effortless bridesmaids dress choices, while not losing view of your dream wedding day backup.
Start off by doing some research. Browse the internet to get thousands of bridesmaid's dresses, save your favourites and share them with your friends, and then find stores in your location that have dresses you love. If you’re flipping through magazines, tear out the pages to help zero in on the colours and styles you like best.
Keep expenses in mind. When it comes to expense, try to be thoughtful of your friends’ lifestyles. Don’t let your wedding be a burden to them. Focus your search on dresses that are affordable but select the dresses, necklines, and colours that you like and let them pick their favourite. Stick to same dress length.
Don't give them too many options to select from; it will save you a lot of confusion when you are all together.
Colour is also something to look into. Choose a colour that goes well with a diversity of skin tones. Check out complimentary colours like red and cyan, green and magenta, purple and cyan, blue and yellow, red and green, yellow and violet, blue and orange and so on. The theme you choose for your wedding can also be of help while choosing your bridesmaids’ dress colour.
Today, bridesmaids even rock different colours, styles and fabric making the event even more fascinating and fun.
However, doing the unequal look presents a new set of challenges. If colour choices aren’t made right, you can end up with a very disjointed-looking bridal party.
Forget the idea of selecting a dress that they will wear again as no matter how pretty the dress is, they will always feel like a bridesmaid wearing it. So choose a dress that you like and they feel good in, and hopefully you will both enjoy them on your wedding day.
