Choosing your Bridesmaid
Dresses is a decision that can make or break your wedding.
Pick the wrong dress and you may lose friends over it (and the guests
will remember and laugh about your choice for years to come). Of
course, if you make the right choice, you'll enhance your wedding
experience beyond belief.
When deciding on what style of dress
you'd like for your bridesmaids, you need to take into account several
vital factors. Not only do you need to get the colours right (how
many bridesmaids have had to suffer through wearing a horrible pink
dress that made them look like a fluffy marshmallow?), but also
the style & cut.
Different body shapes work better
with different styles of bridesmaid dresses, and it's no good trying
to squeeze everybody into a one-size/style-fits-all, if it's going
to de-emphasise their figure strengths and/or emphasise their weaknesses
(not many of us are lucky enough to be born with a model-perfect
figure, after all).
Your best bet here is to work closely
with your wedding dress supplier AND your bridesmaids. A qualified
dress designer should understand what sorts of dress styles
best suit different shaped and sized bridesmaids, and can work with
each individual to find something that shows her in her best light,
all while keeping to a similar theme across all dresses.
Trust us when we tell you that your
bridesmaids will love you for taking their feelings into account
when it comes to their bridesmaid dress, and will likely hate you
if you put them in something that looks horrible for them. While
you don't want your bridesmaids to outshine you (the bride), you
still want them to look fabulous and enhance the overall look and
feel of your wedding.
