How To Choose Your Bridesmaid Dresses

Choosing your Bridesmaid Dresses is such a fun part of your wedding planning but it can also be super stressful! We girls all have different body types and style preferences and obviously, you want your girls to look beautiful and feel comfortable! You do not what to be that bride who chose ugly bridesmaids dresses just so they don’t steal your shine!

My first tip to you lovely Bridey would be to use the search for Bridesmaids Dresses as a bonding opportunity! Have a fun girls pyjama party with a few bottles of wine where you and your bride tribe can discuss their dresses! Everyone can get a chance to say what she would like to wear like but by the end of the night, you have the final say! You and your girls can go on shopping sprees together to find the perfect Bridesmaids Dresses – YAY! This way you will have a great bonding time and everyone will feel happy and included. #HAPPYDANCE

Bridesmaid Dresses are one of the key elements of bringing the theme of your wedding to life. Along with your décor and stationery, the colours and styles of the bridesmaid dresses will definitely anchor your theme. Keep the theme of your wedding in mind when picking the dresses for your bridesmaids – not only should it match or complement your colour scheme, but also the general feel. If you’re having an informal wedding, the dresses should reflect that. Similarly, if you are having a black-tie event, the bridesmaid dresses cannot be too informal. We adore these classy black bridesmaids dresses from Style Me Pretty.

There is a lot more freedom nowadays when it comes to the bridesmaid dresses. They don’t have to be the same cut, style and colour anymore (but you can totally do that too)!

Brides are opting for varying shades of complementary colours, and some brides are letting the bridesmaids choose the style of the dress they want to wear, as long as it fits with the colour scheme. Remember – you want your girls to want to wear their dresses with pride, feel comfortable and confident. It’s also a bonus if they can wear it again, so allow them some freedom when choosing the dresses.
