Bridesmaid Dresses

In a recent bridal survey the Pink Book conducted, it came to light that brides, in general, worry a lot about the Bridesmaid Dresses. This was quite an interesting revelation. What was even more interesting is that this worry ranked higher than the brides’ stresses about her own dress.

So the question is why? The logical explanation is that there is normally more than one bridesmaid and that is it very rare that all of them have the same body shape and preferences. So, if you want to have your girls all wear the same dresses, you are going to run into problems somewhere. What is the solution?

The answer is that there is not an easy one! Luckily, the trend of late, to give bridesmaids a colour scheme and then get them to choose or design their own dresses seem to solve the problem partially. That is if you are OK with the fact that they will not look uniform. Well, at least this solution means there can be no finger-pointing when they’re unhappy with the dress! Here are some tips on how to choose your bridesmaid dresses.

There are so many fun dress trends at the moment. The days of the bridal party all wearing the exact same style and colour are long gone. We suggest allowing your girls to wear different styles to better suit their body types. Also, consider giving them some flexibility in colour choice by allowing them to choose colours in the same colour palette which better suits them.

An old and often over-worn trend in weddings has always been to have the bridesmaids dresses match the colour scheme of the entire wedding. This is not necessary and it might even look tacky for your girls to match the curtains! So don’t box yourself in when considering the colours for your dresses. A great tip is to pick a colour and have the bridesmaids each wear whatever shade of the colour they want. This brings a bit of variety to the party. Or even different colours within a complementary colour scheme could look amazing. Having all of the dresses the exact same colour might look a little flat on photos.
