Finding a bridesmaid dress is all about communication and negotiation. You will soon find out what is meant by that statement. Ultimately, the bride always has the final say. You should remember that if you want to look your best, so does the wedding party. There are so many styles to choose from. Generally, the bridesmaid dresses should compliment the bride’s gown.
Not all bridesmaids have to be dressed exactly alike. Although complimenting your wedding gown, variety is always welcomed. If you have more then one standing up for you, realize that everyone has different tastes, styles, personalities and shapes. Women always want to wear something that compliments their figure. You may agree on a dress. Perhaps choosing the same color, but a different style would be a good compromise.
The styles may compliment you as the bride, and show off their assets while expressing individuality. Other choices available are styles and colors. As for style, this would include a-line, sleeveless, two piece, or a specific length. Colors may include platinum, pastels, or for a fall wedding perhaps hunter green, or burgundy.
Short and sweet should be considered. Buying a bridesmaids dress and accessories can be expensive. If you choose a style that is shorter, the dress may be worn again for another occasion. Discuss options and budget with your wedding party. Today bridesmaids usually pay for their dress. Although it is an honor to be in a wedding, it can also be an expense.
Communication is the key. Various bridesmaids may only be able to afford a certain amount. Before shopping, agree on an amount that will be spent on the dress. If you spot the perfect bridesmaid dress, buy it! More then likely if you wait and return at a later time, the shop may discontinue the dress, or it may no longer be available.
As a bride, this day may be about making your dreams come true. Your bridesmaids are standing beside you, because they believe in you and your future mate. Remember, your bridal party has feelings, tastes, personalities, sizes, and opinions just like you. Don’t push them aside, but communicate and negotiate. You want everyone to enjoy this happy day while walking down the isle looking beautiful!
