12 Tips for Choosing the Right Bridesmaid Dresses

When it comes to the big day, you will have a lot of things to do before it can even happen. One thing you will need to do is choose the right look for your bridesmaid’s dresses. 

Many bridesmaids secretly complain about the look and colour of their dress so choosing the right colour and look of what they will wear will make everyone happy. 

After all, your bridesmaid’s do a lot for you before and during your wedding day so you should do what you can to make them look good on this day of yours. Here are 12 tips for choosing the right look for the bridesmaid’s dresses. 
12 Tips for Choosing the Right Bridesmaid Dresses

1. Be a Great Friend: They are your friends so be good to them. Invite them to your bridal party and then turn them into your fashion victims. One thing to avoid is dressing them in something ugly just to make you look better. Also, don’t choose something that will make them look big or sexless.

2. Decide on the Right Feel: Make sure to take your time when choosing their dresses. Choose something to compliment your gown. Although you don’t want them looking exactly like you, choose something that has the same feel but not the same or too similar.

3. Know that One Size Doesn’t Fit All: Look for a style that will flatter the different shapes and sizes of all of your bridesmaids. Remember, empire waists and A-line usually looks good on all body types. 

4. Mix Things Up: You can either mix things up a bit or select a fabric or colour and then let each bridesmaid choose a style that suits her best.

5. Choose Pretty Colours: First, considering all of their complexions and hair colours, choose a colour that you like and one that you think would look good on each one of them. For example, brighter colours are more flattering while pastels might look good on your friends with fair complexions although they will be too distracting on darker complexions.

6. Choose something they will wear more than once: After all, you don’t want to choose something for them that they won’t want to wear ever again. This means also buying clothes for the reception as well. Make sure it is something they absolutely love as much as you do.

7. Pay for what they can’t afford: Try to remember everyone’s financial situation. Decide whether to hire or tailor depending on your bridesmaid's financial capability.

8. Ask them for their feedback: If you have more than four bridesmaids, don’t take them all at once to go dress shopping. Instead, take a few at a time and ask for their opinion. Getting their feedback will help you understand what they like.

9. Create a list: Write little notes beside each girls name about what you think would look good on them, how much you think they can afford to pay for their dress and anything else you can think of to add to the list.

10. Reuse colours: Dark-colored dresses such as hunter green, black, and even navy will look great on all of the bridesmaids and will also look good at formal events after this one is over with.

11. Consider their comfort level: When it comes to strapless bridesmaid’s gowns or the type that they won’t need a bra with, ask them if they are comfortable with this first.

12. Don’t control everything: Try not to control everything and try not to do everything on your own. Ask your maid of honour or a responsible bridesmaid who you can trust to be in charge of purchasing the dresses.
