July 15, 2010
Being asked to be a bridesmaid is truly an honor, but with that comes a lot of pressure to look your best on the big day. Luckily, bridesmaid’s dresses have never been more sophisticated and stylish. Finding that perfect look is no longer such a struggle. There are many fabulous styles and trends out there to choose from.
Because your bridal party is made up of all shapes and sizes, it is very common to dress your bridesmaids in styles that best suit their body type. After all, it is important that they feel comfortable and confident! Make sure to give some guidelines such as, preferred fabric and color scheme, in order to maintain consistency.
White bridesmaid dresses? Traditionally, you would never consider putting anyone but the bride in white, but, we are consistently seeing more Brides opt for this look. There are many ways to distinguish the Bride from the rest of the wedding party. For example, by using colored sashes or colorful bouquets you can ensure that your guests know exactly who the bride is. This sophisticated and elegant look is perfect for any season.
Don’t be afraid of color! By choosing bright and bold colors for your bridesmaid’s dresses often minimizes the amount of décor required around the altar. If you are having a beach wedding, it is often all you need to add a pop of color in front of the stunning ocean backdrop.
Lastly, when dressing your maids for your tropical destination wedding, please choose light and breathable fabrics so that your ladies aren’t dying of heat. And opt for short, cocktail dresses over long evening wear. Always keeping bridesmaids happy is important!
