5 Things to Consider When Choosing Your Bridesmaid Dresses

1. Colour

The colour of the bridesmaid dresses will be a key decision when it comes to choosing your bridesmaid dresses, it will need to follow the theme of the wedding. Once you have chosen a colour it will be far easier in limiting your options. If you decide to buy your bridesmaid dresses from a specialist shop you will usually find that they can order dresses in a wide assortment of colours and match your colour scheme.

2. Who is paying?

It is important to be up front with who is paying for the the bridesmaid dresses and accesories, will it be you or will it be the bridesmaids? In the US in it tradition for the bridesmaid to pay whereas in the UK it tends to be the bride and groom paying. Whoever is paying don't forget to set a budget, it will help both you and your bridesmaids out!

3. Who is Choosing?

How much say are you giving to your bridesmaids on their dress? This will depend entirely on you and your bridesmaids, some brides tell their bridesmaids the colour and let them choose a dress while other brides are more involved and choose the dresses themselves. Whatever you decide just make sure that you are happy with the bridesmaid dresses, it is your day and you should have the final say.

4. Silhouette

The silhouette of your bridesmaid dress is almost as important as the colour, you want your bridesmaid to feel comfortable and different styles will suit different figures. It is becoming increasingly common for bridesmaids to wear the same colour dress but in different styles, you want your bridesmaid to feel special too! It is worth having the dresses tailored to fit your bridesmaids perfectly!

5. Your Dress

When choosing your bridesmaid dresses it important to consider your wedding dress too. Whilst your bridesmaid dresses don't need to match your dress they should compliment each other. It can be nice to match a small detail on your dress with the bridesmaid dresses, for example the neckline or lace detailing.
