Second only to the bride’s dress, the bridesmaid dresses create atmosphere and develop the theme for your wedding. You may have budget restraints, different ages and body shapes, and strong opinions to cope with, but you can still find the Perfect Bridesmaid Dress to set the stage and make everyone happy.
Collection of Color
If the comfort and happiness of your bridesmaids is top priority, you can give them some leeway and delegate the decision of dress design to them. Consider selecting a color that coordinates with your theme, but leaving the shade and dress style up to each individual bridesmaid. While some brides can’t bring themselves to let go of this important task, others enjoy seeing what their friends will come up with. You may end up with a gorgeous collection like this:
If you like having everyone in the same dress, but are challenged to find a dress that suits each of your bridesmaids, consider convertible style gowns. These specially designed dresses allow for matching dresses with some personalization. For example, they may allow for varied skirt length, straps or strapless, and different fits around the bust. These dresses give a custom designed appearance to your bridal party since they match precisely in color and style with small alterations possible for your attendants’ comfort.
Once you have found a few dresses that you love, allow your bridesmaids to vote on the one that they like best. Be prepared to abide by their decision, after all they are the ones who will be wearing it. You have more pressing concerns than exactly which aqua colored gown they will wear.
If you have all agreed upon a dress, but one of your attendants is uncomfortable with the strapless style or excessive cleavage, add a coordinating wrap to their ensemble. Found a dress that you adore but in no way fits their budget? Give them the example and see what they can find that they can afford.
Be thoughtful, but stay in charge. It is a good idea to give some thought to how your plus sized bridesmaid will look in the dresses preferred by a more petite attendant, but no single person should rule the roost unless it is you. Keep your friends’ budgets and preferences in mind but also be prepared to make a decision and stand by it. You will not be able to choose everyone’s favorite. Be firm but kind when some choose to voice their dismay over the final choice.
