How to Chose a Bridesmaid Dress

Custom Bridesmaid Dresses

Once you’ve chosen your wedding dress, the last thing you feel like doing is taking the time to pick out a bridesmaid dress that suits and looks good on all of your friends. Oftentimes, it’s hard getting everyone to agree on one look, but you can simplify the process by following a few simple tips. Avoid a headache and reduce the stress of wedding planning by narrowing down your bridesmaid dress options and choosing a beautiful look that everyone will enjoy. Bridesmaids are responsible for paying for their dresses, so keep in mind their feelings but know that at the end of the day, the decision is up to you. If you have a wedding theme, the colors should be relatively easy to pick. Finding dresses that match your theme will help you narrow down your search.

Always keep in mind the weather when choosing your bridesmaid dresses. You want your bridesmaids to look great and be comfortable as well. If you are having a summer wedding, opt for lightweight fabrics and summery colors. If you want your bridesmaids to wear different colors, let them chose their favorites and tie the look together by using a consistent bouquet. Everyone’s body is different, and if the body types of your bridesmaid vary significantly you may want to consider buying dresses that flatter every form and share unifying aspects. These dresses will not be exactly the same on each bridesmaid but they will flatter each individual form in order to make everyone look beautiful and feel comfortable.

A lot of brides make the mistake of trying to find a dress that will outlast the wedding in order to get the most out of it. However, don’t base your decision off of trying to make the dress wearable for more than one occasion. A bridesmaid dress should revolve 100% around the special occasion and not be thought of as something that your bridesmaids will be able to wear after your big day. Throughout the process, make sure that you don’t lose sight of your sense of humor. Your bridesmaids might be full of surprises and it’s important not to get stressed out as your wedding day approaches. Remember that whether there’s an unexpected pregnancy, or extreme diet or weight loss, dresses can be tailored to fit the new shape of the bridesmaid. If you are planning winter wedding, make sure you’ve picked out a matching shawl or cover up to keep your friends warm for outdoor photos.

  1. Hi Liz!

    I have purchased my gown from your Lo-Ve-La collection (actually the one featured on your blog!) And all of my girls will be wearing various bridesmaids dresses by you. I was wondering where I could find headbands like the ones you feature on the web site? Specifically like the one paired with dress 363! Thank you and I love love love your vision :) Epic style.

  2. Hi Erica! Thanks so much!
    The head piece used for #363 was actually something we made in the design room, but my friend at has made tons of hair pieces for our shoots and she does custom orders. So, you can tell her that you like that piece and I’m sure she will make it for you!!
    Thanks again and good luck!!
