Choosing your bridesmaids’ dresses can be a lot of stress, but it can also be a lot of fun! While there’ll be a lot of different opinions, it’s your big day so it’s mostly up to you to decide what works and what doesn’t.
Just like every aspect of your wedding, planning gets easier when you follow a guide. So, in addition to planning early, these are some of the things to consider before choosing your bridesmaids’ dresses:
Ask their opinion
It’s your decision to make in the end, but it is considerate to ask what they want and what they think about the styles you’ve chosen. It saves you the heartache of having your girls all upset with their dress on your wedding day.
More often than not, the bridesmaids pay for their dresses so its best to consider dresses that fit into the price range you know they can afford. Even if you’re the one footing the bill, you don’t want to spend so much on only one aspect of your wedding.
Consider the time of the year, and also the venue of the wedding; indoors or outdoors. You don’t want your girls shivering while you say “I do” or looking for hand fans while dancing with you.
You should first consider asking your designer what kind of material it is you’ve chosen, especially if you picked from the internet. Know how it’ll feel on the skin before you finally choose it as the fabric for your bridesmaids’ dresses.
Bridesmaids dresses they can wear again
Most girls like to buy dresses they can wear again, and you can choose styles that you can re-wear like that or can be combined to give another look.
