As a bride, you obviously want to have the perfect wedding. And in a prefect wedding, comes the need for the perfect dresses. And after you have found yours, your bridesmaids’ dresses should be next in line. Here are some tips that you might want to take into consideration when choosing the right dress for your girls:

You have to be in-charge

It is your wedding! So you have the liberty to choose the motif or the theme of the dresses. But do not be a dictator, you can still ask for feedbacks from them every now and then. But do not cower and be pressured to please everyone, after all, that will be your big day and they should be supportive.

Consider every single one of them

But of course, you do not want your girls to look awful on your very special day right? Their bridesmaid dresses does not have to be completely identical. As your girls may have different body types and taste in clothing, you might want to choose a color and a fabric for them. And then you can have your seamstress alter the design a little differently for each girl. They can have different necklines. Or perhaps some can have it in halter while the other is off shoulder or as tube. It is easy to make the dresses look similar but at the same time make each one unique. And even if you won’t be having a seamstress to make the dresses, a lot of stores and boutiques also offer dresses of the same color and fabric in different styles. You can also add accessories to match their outfit and your wedding motif as well.

Consider the season, venue and the time of the day

It is also very important to take into consideration the season in your wedding. For example, if it is summer, you might want to opt for a softer and lighter fabric. The venue and the time of the day should also be considered. Like for example, shiny fabrics are more suitable at nighttime as they shine through the lights. And long dresses are more suitable in hotels rather than in beaches.

Have your bridesmaids fit the dresses

Make sure that the dresses fit right to your girls. Fittings a few weeks before the wedding should ensure that the dresses made or bought will not be too tight or too loose for the bridesmaids.

Bottom line is, have fun in choosing the dresses and it won’t be that difficult of a task.
