How to buy for your bridesmaids:
– Be aware of the colour: what you see on screen isn’t always accurate. Ask for swatches to be posted to you instead – then you can carry them around.
– Order all your bridesmaids dresses at the same time. Batches of fabric can vary, so it’s better if they are ordered together to ensure they are from the same dye lot.
– Use all your girls’ precise measurements. Tell them not to guess. I always say: ‘If in doubt, round up’, as it’s much easier to take bridesmaid dresses in and up, than out and down. Check the length of bridesmaid dresses – a lot of cheaper brands skimp on length and there is nothing worse than dresses that look that little bit too short.
– Be sure to check the store’s returns policy. When bridesmaid dresses are made-to-measure, they usually can’t be returned.
– Avoid “overdone” bridesmaid dresses with frumpy frills and cheap tulle. Choose the most flattering fabric for your bridesmaid dresses available.
– Set aside a day with your bridesmaids to discuss ideas on style and colours.
– If your bridesmaids are paying for their dresses, stay away from overpriced dresses. Style does not equal hefty price tag.
– Remember: bridesmaid shopping is all part of the fun. Bridesmaid dresses need to reflect you and your personality.
Here are some of our suggestions for dressing your bridesmaids:
– Try to choose bridesmaid dresses that complement your colour theme, overall wedding look and story.
– As a general rule, short bridesmaids dresses lend themselves to a more informal wedding, and long gowns tend to give a more formal look.
– Order bridesmaid dresses at least six to eight months in advance of the wedding. This will allow enough time for everyone to have enough fittings necessary to make sure their dress fits properly.
– Encourage everyone in your bridal party to dress elegantly and to feel confident.
– When you ask us which bridesmaid style we recommend for bridesmaids, it’s one of understated elegance. Words like classic, timeless and sophisticated are perfect to describe this look. We love a clean, understated look and believe a bridesmaid gown should enhance a woman’s beauty and not take away from or overpower her. Elegant chiffon bridesmaid dresses with beautiful silhouette with exquisite details like delicate bracelet and pretty bouquet can be stunning!
We offer high quality bridesmaid dresses at affordable prices. Enjoy online shopping and save a small fortune.
