Choosing a bridesmaid gown can seem overwhelming since you are trying to choose colors and styles that will flatter everyone. You may be feeling stuck when it comes to deciding what exactly you want your bridesmaids to wear. If you have already chosen your wedding color scheme, you probably don’t need much help with that, but choosing styles that will fit everyone's body shape and look flattering can be a bit difficult.
A great way to ensure that everyone feels comfortable and like their dress flatters them is by choosing different styles for each bridesmaid! This is a great way to choose flattering styles while still keeping things uniform. You can choose dresses that are all the exact same color and have the same length and material. You can switch up elements like the straps and neckline to make sure everyone is comfortable and has a great fit on their bridesmaid gown!
If you are worried about finding different dresses that are all the same color, you may consider choosing two different colors within your wedding color palette. This will ensure that the dresses still fit in and don’t overwhelm the space with their color, but gives you just a bit more wiggle room when it comes to each bridesmaid. You will likely find more styles of dresses and more options to choose from if you widen your color range.
Another option for the bride that has no interest in keeping things uniform is allowing each bridesmaid to pick out their own dress, free of restraints. Though you may want to ask them to stick to nudes, florals or pastels, you can pretty much give them free rein. This will give it more of a casual, boho-style with each bridesmaid in their own unique dress. This will ensure that each bridesmaid feels completely comfortable and confident in their dress. Plus, it allows you to see each person’s unique style, which is likely part of the reason you love them so much!
Picking a shade
One of the best ways to pick the perfect color dress is by using your wedding colors, but you should also consider some other options. As a bride, you want to be sure that the dresses will not clash with your wedding venue. Be sure to take into account what the colors of your venue will look like to ensure that they are somewhat complementary. Also, take into consideration the season and what colors go best with that time of year.
One thing you really want to be careful about is how much you are asking your bridesmaids to spend on their bridesmaid gown. Unless you will be paying for everyone's dresses, you want to be sure that what you are asking of them is reasonable. The best way to ensure that everyone will be comfortable financially is by speaking privately with each person. Once you find out how much everyone is comfortable spending, you can come up with a price range to stick to. If you are looking to keep things more affordable, consider looking at pre-owned dresses, renting them or allowing each one to pick their own so that it is within their budget!
