Now that you’ve picked your bride squad for your big day you gotta get your bridesmaids set up with some fabulous dresses! We rounded up some helpful tips for selecting your bridesmaid gowns!
Do your research!
Screenshot, pin, and save photos on what catches your eye for bridesmaids dresses. The more inspiration the better! Don’t be afraid to save everything you like, you’d do the same thing when searching for your dress!
Decide whether you want to be shopping alone or with others. Having your bride squad with you or not can be a blast and can be stressful. It’s important to decide between the two to make your shopping experience better.
If you’ve been a bridesmaid before you know that you pay for your own bridesmaid dress. It’s a good idea to keep in mind your bridesmaid’s life circumstances when searching for dresses. An option to have on the table is offering the bridesmaids to pick out their own dresses; you would just let them know what color you selected, this allows a more comfortable situation for bridesmaids to pick a dress at their own price range.
Whether it’s going off of your color palette for your wedding or a compliment to those colors. Go on the other end of the spectrum! Picking out different shades of bridesmaids dresses is the rage right now. It’s a fun way to change things up in a unique way.
Schedule things out! Leave room for error, having a 5-8 month time slot for ordering the dresses along with time for alternations to be done. This buys you more time for even after fittings your bridesmaids may still need more alterations done, so there will still be time!
Ladies, we all know the right bra makes or breaks certain outfits; especially dresses! Making sure after your bridesmaids get the right kind of intimates that go accordingly with the type of dress is super important. This can be a new bra, strapless or not, a new type of panty or Spanx!
