Tips for choosing the right bridesmaid dresses

Choosing bridesmaid dresses for your wedding can be a daunting task, but as long as you take the time to think about each of your bridesmaids, you should be able to select a dress that won't make them a fashion victim.

Yes, it's your big day. But that doesn't mean you should dress your bridesmaids in something you wouldn't be caught dead wearing. Don't choose anything unflattering that would make them look heavy or like they have no chest. Dresses with A-line skirts or empire waists tend to look good on everyone.

A cool, new trend is picking a color or fabric and letting your bridesmaids mix it up with a dress style of their choosing. That way, your tall, curvy friend doesn't have to feel awkward wearing the same dress as your petite friend.

The price range for bridesmaids dresses is generally around $100-$300. Since your friends are making such an investment, it would be nice if you picked something they could add to their wardrobe and wear again. Little black dresses and dark colored dresses are always in fashion. Lastly, have fun with it. Take some of your bridesmaids with you when you go dress shopping and find something everyone feels beautiful in.

  1. Been helping my best friend look at bridesmaid dresses and I see a lot of examples of girls wearing similar but not all the same dress - I like that trend a lot! It gives the attendants the choice of what looks best on each one.
