Ordering your Bridesmaids' Dresses

6 Months Before your Wedding: Ordering your Bridesmaids’ Dresses

Your big day is in six months, and you already have chosen your bridesmaids. The only question now remains, what are they going to wear? If you are keenly looking for ideas, then you are in the right place. We are going to give you some tips that will ensure your bridesmaids look gorgeous on your big day.

Dare to be Unique

Most weddings always have their bridesmaids rocking the same color or style. This also is a good idea, and they will look beautiful still but dare to be different. You can have your bridesmaids choose their dresses or colors. For instance, you can have them do the same dress designs but with a different color. Having them choose either their favorite color or design will incorporate each bridesmaid’s sense of style.

Let Them Glow

Your bridesmaids are going to love it when you let them shine even more. You can have them put on beautiful but straightforward jewelry. Choose some pieces of jewelry that will complement their unique dresses. The jewelry could be just a simple silver or gold, which will, of course, on how much your bridesmaids can spend on their outfit.

Mix up the Lengths

Do this considering the opinion of each of your bridesmaids. You can choose to have them above-the-knee dresses. In this case, your maid of honor can put on a long dress just for her to be a little unique. The lengths are also going to be affected by the type of weather and the kind of fabric that the dresses are going to be made from.

Consider Some Lace

Traditionally, laces are left to the bride, but we agreed on being unique, did we? So you can have your girls put on dresses with intricate, somehow delicate laces. Go for a popping color since bold tones are easily noticed in an outdoor affair. Subtler tones, on the other hand, go for formal events.

Give Them a Variety of Choices

Assigning one gown to them all may be a boring game, but you still need to do it. Failure to do so will leave your ceremonial look to be not so ceremonial but kind of messy. You can, however, look for different designs or colors and have them choose for themselves according to one's preferences.

Have Some White

Bridesmaids can also wear white. White is no longer left for the bride alone these days. Touch up their white dresses with some glowing jewelry like gold necklaces and gold bracelets.

Choose Different Fabrics

Yes, there is no wrong in doing this; you don't have to be a one fabric bride. Your bridesmaids' dresses can have mixed up fabrics as long as they in the same shade.

Join two exceptional pieces to create one great outfit later, and your bridesmaids can wear them as separates.

Match up the Details

If you are going to have your bridesmaids wear a variety of dresses, ensure that the hair and make-up co-ordinates their overall look. You can have them put on the same loose hairstyle.

Well, those are some of the tips you can use to style your bridesmaids. There are some rules too that you can follow to ensure that your ceremony looks awesome. We have articulated some of the rules you can use below.

Coordinate your Style with that of your Bridesmaids

Try to coordinate your style and that of your bridesmaids. For instance, your bridal gown may be busy with laces and beading, so what do you do? It's simple, ensure that your bridesmaids' dresses are on the simpler side with less of the laces and the less of the beading.

You will want to be the star of the ceremony, so it is also important to be as unique as possible. If you have a gown with a higher neckline, you can have your bridesmaids’ dresses to be off to be strapless.

Consider the Body Types of your Bridesmaids

One dress style may not fit all. If you keep this in mind, you may want to consider all the body types that your bridesmaids have. Consider an A-line dress for all your girls. An A-line dress is a universally flattering dress. An Aline is a type of dress that would go for any body shape.

Tip: give your girls a few guidelines they can follow or some certain styles. This way, all your bridesmaids' dresses will coordinate with each other and as well as with your style.

Don't Forget about the Weather

Most brides tend to forget about the weather, but since you are here, don't forget about it. Knowing what the weather might be on your big day is going to save you and your bridesmaids a lot of trouble.

You don’t want to either be freezing or dripping with sweat on the wedding day. If it so happens that it will be a winter day, you can provide your bridesmaids with fur or shawls. If, however, the day is going to be a summer day, provide them with lightweight dresses and some fans if need be.

The Price will Matter a Lot

Your bridesmaids are aware that agreeing to stand up on your wedding day can cause some extra expenses. However, you should consider how much they are going to spend on their dresses. You should also know that there will be alterations to their style. You don't want your bridesmaids to go broke after your wedding day.

Start your Shopping Early

Believe it or not, having your bridesmaids’ dresses ready on time is a lengthy process from finding a reliable designer to shipping your dresses. Don't forget about the alterations that will need to be taken care of. Early shopping will allow you time to ensure that each dress is correctly done and that it fits your girls well.

Some designers will offer you a rush option so that they can speed up the production of the dresses. However, you must always keep in your mind that the speedy option comes with an extra fee. If you don't want that, it is vital to start shopping early.

After all has been said, always remember to choose a very comfortable fabric. Comfort is key when it comes to having fun. You don't want to have your brides uncomfortable even to bust a move on the dance floor.

Most brides and bridesmaids are not so conversant with fabrics, so it is wise to try on different fabrics so you can have a feel, fit, and even breathe. Have a variety of fabrics that you can choose from. Chiffon dresses are out the topmost preferred fabric since they serve well in matters to do with comfort. Chiffon is a very light fabric so that your bridesmaids can freely move about in.
