Dive into these undeniable tips on how to pick bridesmaids dresses.
The wedding planning period is such a beautiful moment of your life. It almost feels like the one event you’ve been preparing for since you knew what weddings were. It’s exciting! At least until you discover just how much work putting a wedding together is. The truth is, you can never really be prepared for the hassle of wedding planning – the guests, pleasing your parents, seating arrangements, catering to your in-laws, food, the wedding gown, the list almost seems endless.
But today, we are here to take some stress off your plate. We’ll be sharing some tips on how to pick bridesmaids dresses so your day can be totally beautiful.
1. Consider their body type
One of the first things in knowing how to pick bridesmaids dresses is understanding your bridesmaids’ body type. You need to make sure everyone has a style that suits them and flatters their figure.
No one wants to wear shiny & heavily embellished fabric in hot & humid weather. And no one wants to be freezing cold because you want your bridesmaids in satin. Check what the weather would be like in your wedding month and pick fabrics and styles accordingly.
3. Ask what they want
Thirdly, you need to ask their opinion. A great trick here would be to have a meeting where all the bridesmaids can air their opinions on what kinds of dress styles they like, and settle on a general look. This way, no one ends up upset with their look while you’re getting hitched.
4. Make it affordable
We can’t stress enough how important this is. Your bridesmaids should be able to afford the fabric, tailoring and any other expense that comes with being on your bridal train. If you can, ask what budget they’re comfortable with and work around that.
5. Ensure the dresses can be worn again
One major problem bridesmaids face is not being able to wear their dresses again. How about you help them solve that problem by picking beautiful styles they can wear to other occasions or styles they can revamp.
Girl, with these 5 tips, we can successfully say you’ve got your girls covered. Now, to figure out the rest of the wedding. Maybe a look at Eki Ogunbor’s traditional wedding will get your creative juices flowing.
