How To Choose Your Bridesmaid Dresses

So, the venue is booked, you have your wedding gown, now onto choosing the dresses for your bridal party.  This is the tricky part.  You want to keep your friends, not loose them, and keep everyone happy.  This ultimate guide will help aid your shopping in those crucial moments.  Your friends will thank you for your consideration.


Consideration is the name of the game when it comes to choosing the right dresses for your bridesmaids, and keeping your friends after the wedding.  Bridesmaids are responsible for paying for their gowns, so talk about budget considerations before shopping.  A full length dress will cost around $200.  Ask your bridesmaids for suggestions after discussing the wedding theme and colors.  Be a friend through this process and they will love you forever!

Party planning ColoradoColors, Colors, and More Colors

If you are choosing dresses based on your wedding color theme, shopping will be pretty simple.  If color options are more open then consider these tips:

–       With different colored bridesmaid dresses, let the dresses pick up the majority of tying together the elements of your wedding theme.  Pull together a unified look with the bouquets if your bridesmaids are wearing multiple colored dresses.

–       If bridesmaids are wearing same color, let the bridesmaids choose their own dress in the same shade of a selected color.

–       If it is a spring or summer wedding choose lightweight fabrics of chiffon and silk.  In fall and winter, choose heavier satins or velvets to echo the temperature.


Choosing a style fit for each of your bridesmaids will be the most difficult aspect.  The best option is to choose dresses in different styles that have unifying elements, such as fabric, color or accessories.  Gown sizes vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, so be sure to measure each girl for her gown, and order several months in advance.
