Dressing your bridesmaids can often be more stressful than finding your own wedding dress! There’s only one of you to dress, but there can be multiple bridesmaids, all with different tastes and body shapes.
We’ve come up with five top tips to make shopping for your bridesmaid dresses super simple…
Remember you can visit the bridesmaid section on hitched for lots more inspiration!
Set up a group email and ask each bridesmaid to email you three examples of bridesmaid dresses that they love. Browse through these and look for similarities in the styles you can work with.
If one of your bridesmaids is particularly difficult to dress, take them shopping alone to find things that suit them and that they love. Use these ideas on the group shopping trip to find something everyone loves!
Don’t go for the group shopping trip straight away – go alone, or with your maid of honor to pick out colours and styles that you like. If you have something in mind it’ll be easier when you go as a group.
Take the time to find out discreetly from each girl if they have any insecurities or hates. Everyone might be raving about strapless, but if one bridesmaid secretly can’t stand her upper arms, she might not want to speak up. You don’t want an uncomfortable bridesmaid.
Remember, you don’t have to be restricted by matching dresses. It’s really on trend right now to dress your bridesmaids in different styles of dress, all in one colour, or pick different tones of a colour and work with that!
