Bridesmaid dress tips and FAQs
What’s the best bridesmaid dress style for my wedding party?

Each wedding party is different, too, in colors and styles that fit the wedding theme. With mix-and-match bridesmaid dresses from David’s Bridal, there’s a beautiful way to honor both bride's and bridesmaids’ wishes.
At David’s Bridal, we offer hundreds of options in varying lengths, styles, materials, and colors so every star shines bright! Whether someone wants to wear a modest-sleeved gown or needs an extra-long hem to match their height, we can accommodate.
Who pays for bridesmaids dresses?

How do I take measurements for a bridesmaid dress?
You’ll need to measure your bust, hips, and waist. It’s also good to know how tall you are and what shoes you plan to wear to properly measure dress length. (We offer extra length on select dress styles, so check out the “extra length” option if you’re tall!)
Many of our dresses are available in sizes 0 to 30W, with plus size and junior bridesmaid options available, too. Our dresses run true to size, so you can have confidence when ordering. However, for best results, it’s a good idea to still take measurements. Follow these steps to measure yourself for a bridesmaid dress:
You should always keep fabric in mind when ordering your size! Some fabrics are unforgiving, while others have some wiggle room.
- Get a flexible measuring tape for the most accurate results. If you don’t have one, use a string that you can measure against a metal tape measure or ruler.
- Put on the bra, underwear, or shapewear you plan to wear with your dress.
- As you measure, make sure the measuring tape is level with the floor and isn’t too tight or too loose.
- Measure the fullest part of your bust.
- Measure the smallest part of your waist.
- Measure the widest part of your hips.
- Measure yourself from collarbone to floor to determine your dress length.
- Take your measurements and compare them to the sizing chart of the bridesmaid dress you want to wear.

Does the bride pay for her bridesmaids dresses?

Does the maid of honor wear a different dress than the bridesmaids?
Most of the time, yes! The maid of honor, also called the person of honor, often wears the same dress as the bridesmaids. It’s not uncommon, though, for the maid of honor to wear something special, like a piece of jewelry, that’s different from the other bridesmaids.
What type of bridesmaid dress is best for plus size?
Many plus size bridesmaids love how A-line dresses flatter their shape. An A-line’s fitted bodice highlights the narrowest point, and the gradually flared skirt is easy to wear. Discover the beauty of every silhouette on our Silhouette Guide.

When should you pick bridesmaid dresses?
The best time to order bridesmaids dresses is six months before the wedding. This will give enough time for special orders, shipping, and any alterations that may need to be done.
What neckline or straps should bridesmaids wear?
If the bride is after a uniform look, all bridesmaids would wear the same neckline, but if the choice is up to each member, they might choose a style that they feel their best in. Cap sleeves and off-the-shoulder sleeves are popular favorites, but spaghetti straps are the most worn among bridesmaids today.
