Bridesmaids |Dress to Impress

After choosing your bridesmaids, the next big task is to pick your bridesmaids’ dresses.  For some brides this is more difficult than choosing a wedding gown!  After all, you know what you like.  You know your body type.  You know what looks good on you.

When picking dresses for your bridesmaids, it’s important to consider their likes and dislikes, body types, time of year, their budgets and the type of wedding you want to have.  All of these factors can have a role in choosing the perfect dresses.

Brides may go the traditional route and choose matching, floor length gowns.  Some view this is a more formal take on the bridesmaids look.  Depending on the fabric, floor length gowns may be appropriate for outdoor ceremonies as well.

Knee length and tea length dresses have become extremely common and are especially popular for summertime weddings.

Asking your bridesmaids to select their own dress style allows them to choose what looks best on them, while sticking with a color and fabric theme.

A popular trend takes a more laid back approach to choosing bridesmaids dresses.  Brides choose a color palette and let their bridesmaids have total control of their look, with the bride’s approval of course.

How will you choose your bridesmaids' dresses?
