When your wedding is around the corner, the stress levels tend to skyrocket and make you all dizzy amidst the preparations. From choosing amongst the best wedding bands to finalizing the menu, you certainly have a lot on your plate.
Amidst so much work, choosing bridesmaids dresses can seem to be very tricky. Well, it really isn’t! Here is a list of everything that you need to know to make the right choice when it comes to bridesmaid dresses.
Not all bridesmaids have the same body types, which means that not all necklines and dress knee lengths will work for all of them. So you will have to sit with your girls and figure a neckline and dress length which everyone agrees upon and would be happy to wear at your wedding.
Pick A Shade And Fabric
If necklines and dress lengths do not seem to be working for you, then let’s try another trick for the perfect dress. Choose a fabric and a color that you would like your bridesmaids to wear. Remember, just like body shapes, complexions can be tricky to handle as well, so instead of a single shade, go for a color family or color palette to help your girls pick the tones they like.
Yes, shopping for bridesmaids dresses is exciting and overwhelming at the same time, but you need to maintain your calm and consider expenses. It’s common that bridesmaids pay for their own dresses, but a gentle reminder wouldn’t hurt. Be considerate while shopping for the dress and keep the financial condition of all your girls in mind so you don’t end up putting any of them under a financial burden. If your budget allows, then pay for their dresses as nothing would make them happier than this generous gesture.
Keep Wedding Theme In Mind
While opting for a bridesmaid dress or your own wedding dress, keep the wedding theme in mind. If it’s a beach wedding, you can go for flowy maxi gowns, but if it’s a fictional themed celebration, then the dress colors and details should comply with the added effects.
Also, when looking for wedding bands for hire, ensure you book the one who understands the wedding theme and is ready to play accordingly. This will ensure that you have a wedding that the whole town talks about.
Consider the weather before making any wedding decision, including the dresses. Your wedding month, time, and venue settings, all play crucial roles in this decision. Do not opt for cut- sleeves or knee-length dresses for a winter wedding. Same way, go for short and flowy dresses for spring and summer weddings. Also, make sure the girls are comfortable in the fabric before anything is decided.
Experiment Before The Final Call
Experiment as much as you can before you come to the final decision. Whether it’s the dress, the shoes, the jewels, the accessories or the hairstyles, figure it all out before you actually reach a conclusion. Try subtle, metallics, brights, and dull shades and then choose the right one. Opt for different varieties of jewels, headgear, and other accessories to see what fits the bill best. Without experimenting, you will not be able to do what’s best for all.
Leave It Be
Yes, you heard that right. Since the girls have to wear the dress, let them choose what they want for themselves. Surely, you can help them by giving them guidelines about colors and styles but keep the drama out of your life by letting them make their pick.
Use these tips to your advantage and find the perfect bridesmaid dresses for your beautiful bridesmaids. Happy shopping!
