How to Choose the Perfect Dress for your Bridesmaids

Choosing the dress of your bridesmaids can be quite difficult and stressful. There is a vast range of choices that you need to make when choosing the dresses. You have to keep in mind the fact that your bridesmaids should feel comfortable and happy wearing those dresses. Not only that, but you have to make sure that their dresses go according to the theme of the wedding and your personal style.

These are some of the important things to look for when you are choosing the perfect dress for your bridesmaids. This can help in making the choice much easier for you.

Choosing the Right Colour

Choosing the colour of the bridesmaids’ dress is the first thing that you decide because it is the most important element of the perfect dress. Make sure that you choose a colour that matches the theme of your wedding. Also, choose a colour that suits variable skin tones. Try to communicate with your friends and ask their opinion on different colour choices that they would prefer. In this way, they will feel happy, too.

To make sure that you are making a perfect choice, try to look at fabric swatches too so that you can get a good feel of the texture and colour of the cloth up close.

Choosing the Perfect Length of the Dress

Now the length of the bridesmaids’ dress is closely associated with a number of factors. You can choose short dresses, long dresses or knee length dresses. The length of a dress determines whether the wedding is going to formal or casual. Also, the length has to be chosen according to the weather and the venue whether it is outdoor or indoor. For a more casual wedding, shorter dresses are much more suitable. But, for a banquet wedding, which is much more formal, long dresses will look good.

Find the Perfect Silhouette

Women have variable body shapes. When you are choosing a silhouette, you need to be absolutely sure that your friends will feel comfortable wearing the dress. As they will be the ones who are going to wear it, it is better if you get their opinion on whether they want a strapless less or a slim fitting dress. Maybe you can even compromise a little in the dress cut and let the bridesmaids choose it completely, provided the colour and fabric of the dress remains the same. It is essential that the neckline and the skirt of the bridesmaids’ dress look perfect on their particular body type.

Choose the Perfect Fabric

The choice of a perfect fabric for the bridesmaids’ dress depends upon the theme of the wedding, whether it is formal or casual, and upon the fabric of your own wedding dress. You cannot go wrong with satin or silk fabric for a more formal wedding. The rich, elegant sheen of a satin or silk dress gives the perfect classy look. Chiffon and Lace can be considered for a more casual wedding. The intricate design of a lace dress gives off a very beautiful, sophisticated and a delicate look. Sequin is the perfect fabric for a more glam wedding. Fabric will show what kind of a wedding style you are going for.
