  • When choosing bridesmaid dresses you should consider you girls body types, of course I am sure your bridal party would not mind if you also tried to choose affordable bridesmaid dresses as well! If your bridesmaids have different body types, as they most likely will, consider that the dresses need to be comfortable and flattering for all body types, not just one. You might want to think about having A-line dresses; they are usually flattering to everyone.

  • Be sure to consider the different skin tones of the bridesmaids when choosing the color of the dress.

  • When choosing the style consider if there is a certain image you are trying to portray such as elegant, formal or romantic. The style of the dress you choose may differ between a daytime wedding with a full catholic mass, an evening affair or a beach wedding.

  • When choosing bridesmaid dresses, try to keep the bridesmaids styles and personal taste in mind.

  • Try to remember that this is not some cheap purchase. Being a bridesmaid can be very expensive. Try finding a dress color and style that they can Really wear again. Try to find affordable bridesmaid dresses.

  • If you want to make your bridesmaids a little happier about the dress let them have a hand in picking them out. I would not suggest letting them go all out, it is after all your wedding. Let them help choose the dresses but give specific instructions and do not let them actually buy them without your final approval. And of course, try to choose affordable bridesmaid dresses that they can all purchase with ease.

  • There are now some dresses combos available which come in the same color and design but have different styles to accommodate different body types. This might be something to consider if complete uniformity isn’t essential to you.

  • Finally, and possibly most importantly, you picked your bridesmaids because they are close to you and matter in your life. You will want these wonderful people to like you before the wedding, during and after so choose the dresses with care. Flattering and comfortable dresses can go a long way towards making sure there is no ill will or unhappiness on this special day. Remember you do not want dresses which the guests will make fun of for years to come, nor do you want dresses that the bridesmaids dread wearing or feel embarrassment while wearing. Also, you do not want to look back at your wedding album and the clothes that were worn and wonder what you were thinking to approve those dresses!
