Ding! Dong! Ding! Dong! Wedding bells are ringing. Here comes the groom, the bride, the flower girls, the bridesmaids… Yes, the bridesmaid. They are your close friends or relatives who will accompany you all through-out your wedding day and organize the bachelorette and bridal shower for you. They will assist you in choosing the best wedding gown in the town. They do a lot of things and yet their appearance on the wedding day itself should not be the least of concern.
Here are some reminders on the logistics behind bridesmaid’s dresses.
- Match their figures
You can choose from a variety of styles such as A – Line or princess, empire, ball gown and sheath. One style might look good for some but not for some. It is important to consider their height, size and shape.
- Complement their color
It is important that the color of the bridesmaid dresses complement with the theme of the wedding, but you might consider the colors which will show best the beauty of your bridesmaids. It is important that the colors will not make clash with the carpet of neither the wedding church nor blend with the reception area. Some use color run that uses different colors of same style of dresses. You can base the color from their hair/ skin tones and height.
Accessories add accent to the bridesmaid dress. It ranges from crystal earrings to pearl necklace to headpiece and other jewelries. Bridesmaid can use complementary jewelries from the bride but should not be identical. When looking for accessories, it should not be very extravagant and the bride must not impose too much jewelry for maids who want to be simple. The bridesmaid accessories also depend on the style and fashion statement of the bridesmaid but the bride can give guidelines as what she wants for her wedding. Shoes on the other hand are the most important accessory among all as it must harmonize with the dress or else it might clash with the dress and theme of the event.
- Bridesmaid lingerie
It is also not a waste if you will try to match dresses with bridesmaid lingerie to make it more beautiful.
- Wedding Dresses = the price for wedding dresses varies from $60 to $400+. The price of a bridesmaid dress depends on the style, fabric, and length.
- Shoes = the price of shoes varies from $150 and up depends on the quality and brand of the shoes.
- Accessories = for the accessories, the prices range from $15 as the cheapest to $100 or more. The price depends on the type of jewellery and headband. The prices also increases depends on the brand that you will buy.
Note: Since the total price for the bridesmaid dresses might cost the bridesmaid too much, the bride might subsidize the expenses.
- Delivery date
Supposedly, the delivery date for the dresses should be a month or 3 weeks prior the wedding to give time for alterations. One can also choose from boutiques and wedding shops that offer discounts and free shipping.
Lastly alteration shouldn’t be forgotten. When providing a deadline for delivery and total amount of dresses it is always added as you don’t know whether the first delivery fits the bridesmaid perfectly.
