So, you’ve found the one for you, but now it’s time to find outfits for your bridesmaids!
Our beloved best friends come in all shapes and sizes and it’s important that their outfits highlight the beauty of each body type, while ensuring that everyone feels comfortable from the ceremony floor to the dance floor. Your ladies should feel confident about their look as they gracefully stand beside you on that special day. Some brides choose a couple of different bridesmaid dress styles and some have their heart set on matching dresses for all of their bridesmaids.
There are some universal styles to keep in mind that will flatter all body types.
The general key is finding a dress with the most flattering shape, neckline and fabric. Looking for an A-line shape will do the trick. This style is specifically designed to accentuate the waist and float away from the body without adding too much volume.
Having a v-neckline will elongate the neck and a lightweight chiffon skirt will lengthen and slim. Incorporating different hues of colours, textures and fabrics will add character to the dress.
When deciding the colour of your bridesmaid dresses, it’s important to keep in mind who will be wearing them.
Not every shade is flattering on everyone. Some universal colours to try are shades of blush pink, earthy sage neutrals, navy, deep reds, and purple. A great way to flatter all of your ladies is to choose a mix and match colour palette so they find a perfect shade to compliment their skin tone and hair colour.
No matter the bust size, your ladies will thank you for giving them a way to wear a bra with straps.
Dresses with wide enough straps give the perfect opportunity to not wear a strapless bra as they always need adjusting throughout the day. You could even opt for a style that has a built in bra to compliment an off-shoulder style or sweetheart neckline.
There are so many options available for bridesmaid dresses. Your wedding is as important for your bridesmaids as it is for you, and the right dress will let your ladies flaunt their most promising areas.
