There is nothing worse than being the bridesmaid who puts on an act of loving to wear that dreadful, tacky bridesmaids dress that the bride swore would be the most flattering dress because it obviously would look good on every body type.
Here are some tips for the bride to make sure their bridesmaids are the perfect complement on their big day:
Consider your environment
Much like your wedding dress, you want to make sure the bridesmaids’ dresses are cohesive with your theme and venue. When going for an outdoor wedding, choose something casual that still looks put together without taking away from the scenery.
Let the spotlight be on you
Don’t be afraid to act like a little bit of a diva! Today is your day and even though you want your wedding party to feel comfortable, stay away from dresses with a lot of embellishments or details.
Any cleavage should be put away and left to the imagination. Every bridesmaid will have a different body type, it is important to consider these factors especially when choosing a strapless or low V-neck line. This is up to each individual bride, but major tattoos or piercings can go along with taking away from the bride’s attention. If the dress does not cover any tattoos that you wish to not be shown in your photos there are always options such as airbrush makeup, which is a temporary concealer that can be removed with soap and water.
Try Letting Your Bridesmaids Wear Different Style Dresses
This has become more of a trend lately where the bride allows the bridesmaids to pick out their own dresses that can either be different styles, lengths, or colors. This would be most appropriate for a more casual wedding or if you’re on a budget!
Still not comfortable going that casual? Stick to the same color scheme but with different necklines and lengths.
