BRIDESMAIDS: Do’s and don’ts of choosing a dress

Remember: It’s your wedding, but make sure your bridesmaids complement you and your theme! There’s no doubt bridesmaids dresses have come a long way (I’m looking at you 80’s). But its a tough decision choosing a dress your best friends will be comfortable and happy wearing and look great in, while still displaying a sense of style. Follow this easy list of bridesmaids dress do’s and dont’s to help you pick the perfect bridesmaid dress!

1. PERSONAL STYLE

  • DO keep in mind how the bridesmaid dress will look with your own dress, and the overall look of your wedding. Even though you are not wearing it, your bridesmaid dress is still a reflection of your own taste and aesthetic.
  • DON’T choose an outlandish style which will clash with your wedding dress!

2. COLOUR PALETTE

  • DO pick a colour which will be prominent in the colour palette for your wedding, but DON’Tfeel limited to just one colour. You can do a colour combination or multiple shades in the same colour family. Popular mixes are nude/pink/blush, green/turquoise/blue, and ombres such as red to pink.
  • DON’T let the bridesmaid dresses clash with your own. Keep in mind how well the dress will look with your theme.

3. CONSIDER THE COST

  • Be sensitive to everyones finances. If you absolutely love a dress that some of your girls might have difficulty affording, consider contributing a portion of the cost, or find a similar dress at a lower price point.
  • DON’T decide on a dress without checking with your bridesmaid’s budgets. There is no need for lavish bridesmaid couture.

4. CHOOSE A FLATTERING STYLE

  • DO keep in mind the body types of your bridesmaids. Are they comfortable in certain styles? Feel free to mix different styles, or pick one that is generally flattering for all body types.
  • DON’T torture your bridesmaids with ill-fitting dresses that will not flatter their body type.

5. THINK TIMELESS

  • DON’T feel glued to what is trending. Stick with classic styles and colours that will stand the test of time.
  • DON’T!!!!
  • For all that is good and sacred in the world, stick with classic styles and colours that will create lasting (good) memories!

6. REMEMBER, IT’S YOUR WEDDING!

  • DON’T pick something just because you think it is re-wearable. A bridesmaid dress is precisely that – a dress for your bridesmaid to wear to your wedding. If it ends up getting re-worn, that is a bonus, but not something you should stress out about!
