Bridesmaids’ Dress Tips Every Bride Should Know

Bridesmaids’ Dress Tips Every Bride Should Know

Choosing the dresses for your bridesmaids can prove to be a more daunting task than you initially expected. In fact, in many cases, choosing the bridesmaids’ dresses can frequently take longer and be more stressful than choosing your own wedding dress.

How do you make everyone happy? What are some of the tips to remember when searching for the right dresses for your special ladies on the wedding day?

We have some tips for you. Keep reading if you’re eager to minimize the stress as much as possible.

· Long, short, or in between? Truth be told, there’s no rule to say that bridesmaids have to wear long gowns. They should probably opt for length when the event is really elegant and traditional – but few weddings these days are actually 100% dedicated to tradition, so the length of the bridesmaids’ dresses can be up for debate. Plus, your bridesmaids might have their own preference here – and choosing a dress that’s too long can severely affect your relationship with bridesmaids who don’t feel good in long dresses.

· All the shapes of the Earth. Every woman is beautiful in her own way – and dressing to impress is most definitely on the bridesmaids’ list of priorities. Choose bridesmaids’ dresses that are either very good for everyone or universally “applauded” by all specialists. The first version might be tricky if you have a lot of members in your wedding party and if they have a wide variety of body types.

· The bodices. Again, it all depends on your bridesmaids’ top halves and how they want to look. Generally, sweetheart gowns are most popular because they can flatter a lot of body types. However, they are not the only type of bodice out there. An illusion high neckline looks fabulous and it is very trendy – however, if your bridesmaids don’t feel good in this, they will feel uncomfortable throughout the entire Big Day.

· Letting them choose. Mismatched bridesmaids’ dresses are still very popular. You will be able to completely mismatch your bridesmaids’ dresses and simply allow them to wear what they want. A unifying theme of some sort is always nice (like a specific color, length, or neckline), but letting your bridesmaids choose their own dresses helps everyone feel their best.
