How to Ensure Your Bridesmaids Love their Wedding Day Look
When choosing your bridal party’s wedding day ensemble, you want each of your girls to love their look. Whether you want them to look identical or are going for a mismatched look. Lean how you can ensure that all of your bridesmaids are happy with their wedding day outfit and accessories.
Get Their Input
Rather than keep your girls in the dark, get their input. Give them the details of your wedding plans so far, so that they understand the look you are going for. Take note of the dress designs and styles that they like and do not like, including the different colors, lengths and materials. Combined with your own ideas, this will help narrow down the options.
Consider their Style
Make sure that when considering dresses, you consider each of your girls styles. Not everyone has the same taste in clothing or the same body type. You will need to take note of which styles will suit which girls in your party. You don’t want anyone feeling uncomfortable or as though they don’t fit in. For example, if you have a bustier girl in your group, she will prefer a gown with a structured bodice and straps. A girl who is larger at her midsection will prefer a gown with an A-line silhouette that complements her body shape. In addition to body shape, you will want to consider their personalities. Not every girl will want a flowy and romantic dress. Some may prefer a look that is more minimalistic.
Give them Choices
Once you have a clear picture of the types of dresses that both you and your girls like, pick a few that your girls can choose from for the big day. The more options you give to your girls the better, but don’t go overboard. Too many and your girls may feel overwhelmed. When picking the dresses that you will present to them, make sure you choose a decent price range. This way all of your girls will be able to find a dress that they like and can afford.
Don’t be Afraid to Mix it Up
It can be daunting to mix and match dresses, but it is the best way to accommodate all of your girls. Trust us when we say that you can achieve a gorgeous and cohesive look with mismatched bridesmaids. Consider gowns of similar shades, with different patterns, of various lengths and with unique details. This will allow each and every one of your girls to standout in their own way, while aligning with your overall wedding day vision.
Gift Your Girls Early
If you plan to gift your girls any accessories, such as jewelry or shoes, do so before they buy a dress. Your gift will play into their decision, due to the color or pattern, or the type of material. This will prevent any buyers remorse and mean that they will be able to create a more cohesive look for your big day.
