Choosing bridesmaid dresses comes with a lot of difficult decisions. Colors, length, silhouettes, shoes, it is a lot to consider! When the bride chooses her wedding dress she is the only one that really has to say yes, but with bridesmaids each one has to say yes to the dress. It is much harder to please multiple bridesmaids than it is to please one bride. Bridesmaids have various tastes and are all shaped differently. It can be next to impossible to find something that flatters everyone, fits into your wedding’s theme and colors, and everyone likes. So here are some tips and inspiration from Oh So Classy Events!
1. Colors: Bridesmaid dresses come in every color imaginable! Some that you may not have even considered before. It is sometimes best to wait till shopping to figure out the color or colors for dresses. You may find that perfect dress that doesn’t come in the exact color you want. Sometimes you will have to sacrifice one aspect for a dress that you originally had your heart set on. There are many different ways you can go with colors. Many brides are now doing many different colors that are similar color tones such as jewel tones, pastel, or the wedding colors. Below are some great color combinations to get some inspiration.
2. Length: Length is very important to a bridesmaid dress. There are many things to consider when deciding on the length. What kind of climate are you getting married in? It doesn’t make much sense to have a short dress in a cold climate even though you may have fallen in love with one. If you are getting married in a rather hot climate and are having less formal wedding it doesn’t make much sense to wear a long formal dress either. If you are on a budget long dresses can stretch your wallet as well. Most of your bridesmaids will probably have to get their dresses hemmed, which will add to the price. So make sure you are considering these factors when deciding on length
3. Hair Accessories: Hair accessories can add great flair to any bridesmaid look. It can really give your bridal party some personality and can go with the theme of certain weddings! Here are some accessories for the bridal party that are sure to make you say ooh and ahh.
