Styling your bridesmaids should be a fun and enjoyable experience for all involved. You need them to look amazing because they are going to be your ultimate accessory for your big day. It can be difficult to know where to start with such an overwhelming amount of choice. So to help you get started, here are five tips you can follow to successfully style your bridesmaids and get them looking nearly as good as you do.
- Finding complimentary colours
No matter how many bridesmaids you have, they will always be different from one another. Whether it’s their body shape, skin tone or hair colour. You need to consider firstly what shades will suit each of them and also suit your wedding’s colour scheme. The easiest way to do this is taking a trip to the shops and experimenting. Nudes are always a great choice as they tend to suit everybody. But remember your bridesmaids don’t necessarily have to all wear the same colour. A very modern approach is to have the bridesmaid in differing shades of the same colour or bright clashing colours. Just always make sure it works with your chosen colour scheme.
2. Choosing the right style dress
Wouldn’t it be nice if your bridesmaids could wear their dresses again and again. Why not choose a design that allows them to do so. Simple shapes in suitable lengths are easy for your bridesmaid to re-wear again. Deciding on what style would be most appropriate is again down to your wedding’s theme. If you are having a vintage themed big day, beautiful flapper dresses with lots of beading could work. Or a 1950’s style dress with full skirt, in a fun print. Grecian style dresses have always been a popular choice for bridesmaids as they suit most wedding themes. Choose a style that suits each bridesmaid perfectly. You could even choose dresses in different styles and lengths to make them more appropriate for each bridesmaid. You want them to feel comfortable on your big day after all. You will most likely need to gather your bridesmaids together and get them trying on potential dresses in a store.
You can also buy your bridesmaids and wedding dresses online. Make sure the website has good quality images, so you can clearly see the style and colour of the dress.
3. Don’t over accessorise
Try to encourage your bridesmaids to wear elegant and simple accessories. You don't want them to overshadow you on your big day. Over accessorising can alter the look of the dresses and change the feel of the day. You can even buy them the jewellery you want them to wear as a gift. If you would like to bring in some of their own personality, let them choose their shoes and handbag. It might be wise to give them a specific colour to work with, so you don’t have too many different colours.
By now you should have some more direction and know what you need to consider before buying. It’s important to treat your bridesmaids like individuals and consider their opinions. With this in mind, they are bound to love whatever you chose for them.
