Your wedding day is almost here, but bridesmaids haven’t decided on their dresses yet? Don’t worry! The last thing you want to do is to create dress stress for them, so be laid-back and very flexible when it comes to that important decision. Here are some tips on how to help your bridesmaids choose a unique look, so stay with us and check them out.
⦁ Be a Good Friend
It is crucial to maintaining a good relationship with your bridesmaids while planning the wedding, simply because they are your best friends who should enjoy it as much as possible, too. For that reason, try not to turn them into fashion victims by dressing them into something hideous so that you can shine and look fabulous. Don’t be a bridezilla – avoid choosing an outfit that will make the girls look bulky or totally ridiculous.
⦁ Set a Theme
It is always a good idea to have bridesmaids’ accessories complement your own, or that their dresses are inspired by your own wedding gown. Creating unique looks that perfectly work together is aesthetically pleasing. For example, flower themes are very popular for a wedding day, so you can choose floral accessories for both the bridesmaids and yourself. Also, if you decide on wearing pearls, you can opt for a chunky, eye-catching choker whereas bridesmaids can have a simple strand of pearls that would match the overall theme.
⦁ Help With the Dress…
Helping your bridesmaids pick the perfect dress is definitely the trickiest part of the planning, especially if you want them to have identical dresses. Of course, it is important that their dresses complement your gown – just make sure that they are not too similar to it. You should also have in mind that one size doesn’t fit all, so search for the style that flatters every body shape and size. Empire waist dresses, as well as A-line skirts, tend to work great with every silhouette. On the other hand, if you decide on having your daughter or a younger cousin as a junior bridesmaid, you can search for the cutest junior bridesmaid dresses online. There are so many possible choices, and all you have to do is to make sure that all the girls feel comfortable in their outfits.
⦁ …and Also With the Shoes
Picking shoes after purchasing the perfect dress may be a bit tricky to the bridesmaids, simply because they have already spent some money on it, so they might not want to spend even more on a pair of shoes you choose. However, if they will not be wearing the same dresses, you can ask them to wear at least identical shoes. Find a lower-priced pair that they will love to wear after the wedding too. Forget about those gorgeous Loubs or Manolo Blahniks – that would be a huge and quite unnecessary expense at this moment. A pair of simple pumps or strappy sandals will do the trick – high heels will definitely complement their figure and the overall look at the most important day of your life.
Keep our tips in mind and try not to be a control freak by doing everything yourself. There is no need for that because you have so many friends around you who would love to get involved and help as much as they can. You can provide the basic guidelines and support because it is your wedding day after all. Working as a team is definitely the most beneficial, so have that in mind while planning the ceremony.
