On Wednesday we were talking about bridesmaids and how important are they for you as a bride, they are your closest friends or relatives and you want for them to have a good time on your wedding day as much as they want for you to have a good marriage for the rest of your life.
If you follow just some of the advice from our previous posts, you and your bridesmaids will enjoy all together in planning and preparation for your big day.
And even if just the mention of bridesmaids dresses gives you a headache, don’t be nervous, today there is plenty of beautiful bridesmaids dresses and I am sure that they will be able to find the perfect one for them, but since you are making the final decision and you want them to be happy we will give you just few tips how to keep things on the right direction.
1. Hit the vibe.
Your dress and your wedding theme are important guide for bridesmaid’s dresses. They should complement your dress and your style, but don’t overdo it, for example if you have a vintage wedding they don’t need to be pin up replica.
2. Color palette.
Once again your wedding theme is your starting point, but you have to think about complexions, skin tones and hair colors of your friends. Brighter colors are generally more flattering with darker complexions, while pastel hues are a perfect pick for girls with fairer skin. So go with a main color of your theme an play with its shades.
3. Fit and comfort.
Your wedding style should adjust to the bridesmaids body line, and if they are cheerful and they like to dance all night, don’t tie them up in long gowns or strapless dresses to pull them up between songs 🙂
4. Their closets and costs
Well, honestly most of the bridesmaids doesn’t wear this dress again, so be thoughtful with the costs, If you fall in love with a dress that’s a bit over their budget, consider covering the difference yourself.
But if you know your friends very well think about what your bridesmaids could do with the dresses after the wedding (little black dresses and dark-colored slip dresses are both re-wearable options)
5. Have fun
It’s the essential here, you don’t need to go from shop to shop and get exhausted from all those dresses, make a small gathering, tell them to bring one of their favorite dresses and do the research before shopping. Don’t forget that the time that you will spend together is about sharing this occasion as a part of your friendship and not only about the dress.
