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. Check
out our range of bridesmaid dresses in our bridemaid
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 competant wedding
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
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.
