The bridesmaids have been chosen and now they’re all bombarding you with ideas for their dresses. After the constant emails, calls and text messages you remind yourself why you chose them. They’ve been amazing friends for as long as you can remember; now it’s time to talk wedding fashion and make sure they don’t over step their boundaries.
Here are 4 simple tips on how to choose the bridesmaids’ dresses without anyone throwing a fit:
1. Ask Your Bridesmaids: Ask what they feel the most comfortable with when it comes to style, shape, color and cost. Even though you ultimately have the last say in this decision, you want them all to be happy, comfortable and look amazing on your wedding day.
2. Not All Bridesmaids Were Created Equal: Choose a style, color and fabric that compliment the bridesmaids’ different sizes. You can get away with this by choosing different styles in the same fabric or allowing your bridesmaids to choose similar styles in different hues. Both of these options are a great way to add some dimension. Take a look at our gallery to see some examples of different pallets you can choose for your bridesmaids’ dresses.
3. If They Don’t Look Good, Neither Will You: Some brides fear that their bridesmaids will out shine them and choose to put them in a not so flattering dress. The truth is that no matter what dress you choose for the bridesmaids (ugly or not) they will never be able to outdo you, you are the bride and all eyes will be on you!
4. They’re Bridesmaids, Not Divas: Don’t let the bridesmaids turn into divas; we’ve seen this plenty of times on Say Yes To The Dress, and don’t let it happen to you! Do ask for their input but don’t let them run the show. Remind them that it’s your big day and they were chosen to accompany you on your special day.
I hope these 4 simple tips help you with your decision! What colors do you plan to choose for your bridesmaids’ dresses?
