After finding your perfect dress, your next big step is to choose your bridesmaid dresses. In order to help make the process as stress-free as possible, I will share what I have learnt through my experience when working on a commission and collaborating with a bride to make her perfect bridesmaid dresses.
The first important factor to consider is the bridesmaids. It is important to find the right shape and size of the dress for each bridesmaid, as each person will fill out the dress differently. Try to incorporate your bridesmaid’s body to compliment the style of the dress. For the bride I worked with, we agreed on three different styles for her ladies; one off –shoulder, another was a halter-neck and the last one was a V-neck dress. All, were tailor-made to suite her bridesmaids beautifully. When choosing the style of dress it is also important to consider the age of your bride. The dresses where designed to be above the ankle length as the bridal party were of a young age.
An important note to refer to when choosing the dresses is that your bridesmaids will be standing next to you on your big day, so if you want to attract the spotlight for the day, try keep the dresses elegantly simple .In other words, avoid dresses with exaggerated features. After all, the dresses form part of the theme of the wedding and thus they must fit smoothly within the larger picture.
Picking the colour for the dresses is also important. The colour depends on two factors; the first is the time of day the wedding will be held, and the second is on how the compliment the theme. When choosing the colour your options to consider are whether they are one solid colour, two or more colours and also whether you would like to include a pattern or design on the dresses. For the bride I worked with, we agreed on a peach colour, as it was the foundation colour for her whole wedding. Thus, the bridesmaids tired it her theme perfectly when they stood next to her and her groom.
To sum it up, the perfect bridesmaid dresses must:
1. Fit each bridesmaid individually.
2. Must have an appropriate style.
3.Must tie in the theme with the chosen colour.
