Bridesmaids – maybe they’re your college roommates, your sisters, or your childhood best friends. These special ladies standing by your side are an important part of your day, and finding the perfect gowns for them to wear is crucial! Here are some bridesmaids dress trends and favorites to inspire your search! Read on to find out more!
Be considerate of what’s flattering on your friends:
You don’t have to spend too much time comparing fabric colors to skin tones, and dress styles to your girls’ silhouettes, but you should be conscientious of what’s flattering and what to avoid. Work to select a color that won’t be too harsh on anyone’s skin tone, and a style that makes every body feel comfortable and confident
Don’t forget your out-of-town bridesmaids:
If you have a lot of bridesmaids who live out of town, find a service that will be flexible and allow at-home try ons! Many online shopping outlets will ship dress samples throughout the U.S. so that your bridesmaids can feel good about their dress decision!
Keep the weather in mind:
Will your wedding be warm and humid? Or cool and breezy? Don’t forget to look for styles that are comfortable and weather appropriate! Keep dress length, fabric texture, and fit in mind when choosing for the season!
Let your Bridesmaids take the lead:
A rising 2017 wedding trend has bridesmaids selecting their own dresses! With a few simple guidelines, your girls can take the lead and choose dresses that are a unique expression of themselves! When brought together, each dress will make a beautiful contribution to a cohesive collection of beautiful bridesmaids!
