I don’t know how many of you have seen the movie 27 Dresses but if you’ve ever been a bridesmaid in a friend’s wedding you know there’s always that tiny of feeling of fear when it comes to the choosing of the dresses. When the day comes that it’s your turn to choose dresses for your bridesmaids try to remember that feeling and spare them!
To Each Her Own
No two women are made alike. What looks great on one bridesmaid might make another bridesmaid feel uncomfortable. It may be your big day but you picked these women to be by your side for a reason and you want to make sure they are happy too. Consider picking a color and allowing each bridesmaid to pick a dress to fit her personality and flatter her own figure. Check out multi-colored bridesmaid dresses at David’s Bridal where they have 44 colors in hundreds of combinations. This is a win-win situation, you don’t have to be a Bridezilla and everyone’s happy!
Wear Again Looks
No one wants a closet full of dresses they’ll never wear again. When looking at bridesmaid dresses consider those that can easily be worn again for another event. Bridesmaids are expected to pay for their own dresses so they will undeniably be thankful that they can consider their dress an investment. You definitely can’t go wrong with Vera Wang. The White by Vera Wang collection found at David’s Bridal is full of dresses that are classic and sophisticated like this beautiful bobbin net dress with illusion neckline, ruched bodice, and an asymmetrically draped bubble skirt.
Ditch the Traditional
These days more and more brides are ditching the traditional and putting their own creative and personal touches on everything from the venue to the decorations to the bridal parties. There’s no right or wrong and there’s no handbook that says your wedding has to fit any cookie cutter mold. Gone are the days where everyone has to wear long, formal, matching dresses with heels and their hair done exactly the same way. If your wedding is on a ranch and you want your bridesmaids to wear cowboy boots, go for it!
The most important part is that your wedding reflects you and your partners’ personalities and love.
