So you’ve fallen in love with a wedding dress, it’s on order and you know exactly how your bridal look is going to pan out. But what about the bridesmaids?! Choosing bridesmaid dresses to suit all of your maids can be a tricky task. Different sizes, shapes, colouring… how do you ensure that all of your bridesmaids feel as fabulous as they deserve and don’t go running to hide when the photographer comes ready to capture the bridal party?
There are a number of tips for getting the overall look you want for your wedding, while catering for each of your maids. Have a little look below then head over to our appointments page to arrange a time to come in with your girls and have a try!
One colour – multiple styles
A really exciting way to create unity and a sense of wholeness without asking your bridesmaids to squeeze into a style of dress that is really not cut for them. Identify a colour that fits with your scheme and try a bridesmaid designer such as Dessy who create a whole range of designs in a rainbow of colours. Something for everyone meaning everyone emits their very best on your big day.
Multiple shades – one style
Moving slightly further on, you could look at developing your colour choice into a range of tones from one shade. For example choosing blue as your colour theme but allowing different shades of blue for each maid to work for their individual colouring.
Developing the idea further still, there is no need to stick to one particular style or colour. As long as the dresses work together, the look can be unified (if that’s what you’re aiming for) with the use of accessories and flowers.
