Tips for Finding the Perfect Bridesmaid Dress Your Entire Party will Love
by Carmen Ordonez
Wedding gown—check. Finding a venue—check. Finding the perfect bridesmaid dress your entire party will love…now that can get a bit tricky. You’ve suddenly become a stylist and a bride! But not to fret, here are some easy tips to ensure the bridesmaid dresses you pick will not end up never seeing the light of day again.
Consider Different Body Types
One of the most important things to consider is the size and shapes of your bridesmaids. Sure you love that clingy silk dress, but is it going to look great on everyone in your bridal party? Instead look for universally flattering styles such as an empire waist dress or an A-line cut. This long halter empire beaded dress from David’s Bridal is a perfect example of a figure flattering dress. Plus, the halter neckline is ultra chic and will provide support for those with a larger bust. It’s also available in sizes ranging from 2-26.
One Color, More Than One Style
Nowadays, more brides are opting for picking a color and a length (either short or long) and then letting their bridesmaids choose the style. This is a great option. Not only will you be able to keep the color consistent, but also every bridesmaid will be able to wear a style they love.
A Wear-Again Dress
Save your bridesmaids some money and keep a smile on their face by picking a dress they could wear again. David’s Bridal has several “wear-again” styles like this short satin dress with a contrasting black waistband. How great would this look at a cocktail party too?
