ASK FOR ADVICE
Remember that not all the decision making power has to lay on you, take some of the stress out of it by reaching out to your bridal girls, wedding planner (if you have one) and fiancé. They can offer more ideas and help you narrow it down with ease.
Whether you are supplying the dresses for all of your bridesmaids or asking them to organize it themselves, money can be a concern! Everyone has different budgets, and cost can be a stress.
Some more wallet-friendly ways of having a gorgeous dress on the day could be to try renting instead , or if you have a bigger bridal party and don’t want to blow the budget, the more you buy through our website the more you save, anywhere from 10%-40% off!
Everyone has different coloring whether it be skin tone, eye colour or hair colour and it is hard to find something that will compliment everyone. If you have a mix of some cooler-toned and warmer-toned babes in your bridal party, the best option for you might be to do some mismatched dresses (as seen below) with the same colour but variations of shades to match everyone! Our previous blog post here can help to point you in the right direction.
More and more brides are leaning towards letting their bridal party choose their own dress, with one simple request: It needs to be within a certain colour range. This gives everyone freedom to choose a particular shade, style and texture of dress that flatters their body shape and gives them confidence.
When it comes to both different cuts and colors in your bridesmaids' dresses, the perfect way to tie it all together is with matching bouquets. They will all still match, but everyone will be unique in their own way and it makes for some gorgeous photos! As a bonus, it also takes the pressure off the grueling task for you of trying to find one dress to fit everyone.
Depending on your theme or venue, there might be certain colours or styles of dress to compliment it best, here are our top pics;
Are you a statement bride wanting all the glitz, glamour and sparkle in the world? Be bold with a bright silver or intense red to add 'wow' to your bridal party.
Wanting a simple, beautiful wedding? You can never go wrong with a black and white contrast.
Is your venue outside and surrounded by flowers, greenery and bright open spaces? Your bridal party will look stunning in deeper greens!
Getting married to the sound of the waves? Opt for softer colours (pastels, champagnes and neutrals) and flowier dresses.
You’ve got the dress, the shoes and have picked out your hair and makeup but still feel like you are missing something? Adding a touch of sparkle and shine to your formalwear can bring it all together and create the ultimate statement.

With your big day approaching, there are many things to consider; Whether you want to invite your distant cousin Frank who you haven't seen in 15 years and if the cake is going to be triple chocolate or double chocolate (the more chocolate the better right?).
Choosing your bridesmaids dresses is something that hopefully we have taken a little bit of the stress out of for you, remember to keep having fun with every wedding planning step!
Have a beautiful day (& wedding) x
