Most brides have every aspect of their wedding planned out exactly. They know what they love and what they want, choosing a dress for her bridesmaids is not always as clear cut and simple as it may seem. While it’s totally, 100% the bride’s privilege to choose the dress, there are many other details that she should consider as well. Not only do the dresses need to compliment the bride’s gown and her vision for the day, but these dresses should also work for the bridesmaids. It is a good idea to consider the cost, cut and style of the dress when asking ones friends and loved ones to wear these garments.
One of the most important things to remember when choosing formal bridesmaids dresses is to find one that every member of the group can agree on. Obviously, this can be a challenge. The most important thing for most women is going to be the way the dress fits and how it looks on their specific body type. Take some time to talk to each bridesmaid and find out what parts of their bodies they would like to emphasize and what parts they would like to camouflage. After discussing with everyone, sit down and really research the different shapes and cuts of dresses available. Taking the time to really analyze and think about which shape will be universally flattering is the key to getting bridesmaids to agree.
Figuring out a firm budget is another important thing to keep in mind. It is important to remember that the dress is not the only expense the bridesmaids will have for this event. Take into account any trips the party may be taking, hair and makeup costs, and traveling and lodging expenses that the girls may end up paying. Brides should remember to keep the cost manageable, especially if the dress is not going to be one they can wear over and over again. Read the rest of this entry »
