Bridesmaid Dress Tips
Finding the perfect bridesmaid’s dresses can be oh so tricky, maybe you’ve started by making a Pinterest board? or looking through magazines? Whatever you have done, we have compiled out top 5 tips for when you start the shopping journey.
Here are our top five bridesmaid dress tips when shopping:
Look at dresses yourself first
It’s best to start looking at bridesmaid dresses alone before you ask for the opinion of your bridesmaids. This allows you to seek colours and styles that you want to have at your wedding.
We often find brides who are trying on wedding gowns will also look at our range of bridesmaid dresses, this allows them to get ideas and ask any questions that they have. After having a look yourself it is then a good idea to get comments and feedback from your bridesmaids to help you move forward in the process.
Make the dress reusable
A great idea for bridesmaid dresses is to find a style that can be re-worn at another time, not only is this great for preventing landfill but is especially good if you are asking your bridesmaids to pay for their own dresses.
Make sure they suit your bridesmaids
There are so many ways to dress your bridesmaids, will they be all the same colour? different styles? or maybe unique styles and different shades? Check out one of our recent blog posts on different ways to style your bridesmaids.
We highly recommend thinking about your bridesmaids body shapes and hair colour when choosing a colour or shade.
Your maid of honour is happy to help
Your maid of honour is usually someone you can completely trust with your life and will be honest with you when you need them to be. So if you are struggling on your shopping journey alone, take them with you for honest feedback and ideas.
It’s also a fantastic way to involve them and allow them to be a part of your shopping journey.
Create a budget
Will you be paying for your bridesmaid dresses or will they be? Either way setting a budget for yourself or bridesmaids when purchasing dresses is super important, as you don’t want to loose friends over the extraordinary cost of bridesmaids dresses that you end up choosing.
