Deciding What To Do About Bridesmaids Dresses

Deciding What To Do About Bridesmaids Dresses

When planning a wedding, one set-back many brides have been caught up on is deciding which bridesmaids dresses they want to implement.  There are so many options, colors, and styles. But, there is a fallback when it comes to choosing what bridesmaids dresses to have your closest gals buy.

First, you have to think about colors.

When you are deciding the colors of the dress, make sure they align with your color scheme somewhat.  More neutral colors are the most appealing on any person- rather than bright and bold colors.  You also have to think about each bridesmaids skin tone.  If they are more pale, they will not look good in any blush colors.  And if they have more of an olive skin tone, they will not look as well in brows.  Because of this, they can match too much with the colors, setting it off a little.

Second, you have to think about each bridesmaids body type.

Now I know you know this already- not all women are made the same! There is pear shape, apple, straight, thin, narrow shoulders, etc.  When choosing dresses you want to find something that not only looks appealing on each of your bridesmaids, but you want something that each bridesmaid feels comfortable in.  There is nothing worse than having to spend hours on hours in a dress that not only doesn't flatter you, but is super uncomfortable.

Third, are you getting married in the more summer or winter months?

This is a big question to ask yourself if you want to do longer dresses or short dresses.  If you decide to do longer dresses then you have to understand there will be multiple girls that will need to get it tailored, adding to the extra, ever-growing budget pile. Companies naturally make dresses longer for women who are taller, but if they are short then they will definitely have to get it hemmed, unless they want to be stepping on their dress all night or wearing pumps, risking herself for falling.

Fourth, will the style of the dresses all be the same or will they be different?

If all the dresses are the same, it makes it harder to cater to each bridesmaid and her look, unless you are one of those brides that is just concerned about making yourself look glamorous.  I have attended a few weddings where the dresses have all been different, but in the same color scheme, which worked out great.  And I was in another wedding where all the dresses were the same, but the bride spent hours searching for one to tailor to each bridesmaid.

It's your choice, really.  While it may be easier to just to one dress in one color to make your life easier, it may not make it so easy for everyone else in the wedding party.

Just some food for thought.

Just doing what I do best: sitting at my computer either writing or watching Netflix. It’s a coin toss at this point. Get to know me!

    Perhaps there is a means you are able to remove me from that service?
