Once you find the dress of your dreams, it's time to find the dress (or dresses) for your bride tribe! Where to start, you ask? Join us as we give you some our favorite tips when it comes to selecting the perfect complimentary look for your girls on your wedding day and how to have fun doing just that!
The options are often times endless so the best way to start is to narrow down your color palette and the styles you are liking. Do some homework before your appointment-see which designers the shops you'll be visiting carry and take a look at their websites. Keep in mind, the shops may not carry every dress from that designer, but look through their collections to see which color, silhouette and fabric stands out to you. This will help to narrow down what will be the best choice for your girls and keep the experience fun and memorable in the best of ways! Are you a classic bride looking for a floor length black or navy dress for your bridesmaids to compliment a timeless look? Are you more of a modern glam bride and planning a wedding where sequin dresses would be the perfect addition? If you are either of those brides or in between, keep in mind the overall look and feel of your wedding and, ultimately, what will both look and feel amazing for your bridesmaids. You can't go wrong with those two thoughts as your focus.
A few other helpful hints?
Remember that bridesmaids are usually special order and take 3-4 months to come in. Give yourself 5-6 months to order if at all possible; this will allow your bridesmaids a little extra time to plan for that expense and to get professionally measured. In more of a hurry? No worries, most of our wonderful designers offer rush deliveries!
Are you wanting your bridesmaids to wear different styles or colors? Do you want to make it easier on you and your leading ladies? Pick 3-4 options for them and let them decide from those choices. While your heart is in the right place, it's sometimes more stressful and time consuming if they can pick anything. Give them the choice & a little guidance to keep everyone smiling.
Keep in mind that bridesmaid dresses are ordered according to size charts and are not custom made to your bridesmaids' measurements. What does this mean? First of all, it's so very important to be professionally measured to ensure the most accurate size is ordered. Second of all, most bridesmaids can expect to have alterations done to their dress to make it a perfect fit. The best part? These dresses are made to be altered so it's something a seamstress will be able to easily accomplish.
