Some Tips for Shopping Perfect Bridesmaid Dress

It's your big day, you've put months into discovering that perfect wedding dress. Of course, you want your bridesmaids to look smashing too. Just don't forget to keep their tastes and styles in mind. After all, even the best photo-editor can't erase the look of pure embarrassment or discomfort off the faces of your bridal party. Here are some easy guidelines to follow for painless ways to please your bridesmaids.

Make sure the dress can flatter your wear. Think about your gown and overall wedding style. Is it classic, modern, or maybe vintage? Your bridesmaids' dresses should fit the vibe. If you're wearing a flowy, bohemian lace dress, your maids might look out of place in formal taffeta dresses.

The color is really important. Don't expect everyone to cast a bronze glow. Blush and taupe are hot bridesmaid dress colors right now, but they don't suit every skin tone. They can wash some people out. If you've got a range of fair, olive, and dark skin tones, make sure the dress color flatters all. You can work in a two-color palette to please everyone.

Consider the season and time of day. The date of the wedding is probably a big factor you should pay attention to—fall tones and apple centerpieces for October, peonies and spring colors for May—but the time of day matters, too. Black dresses could be perfect for November but a little forced for an outdoor, mid-day ceremony.

Keep an opne mind and be flexible. Most bridesmaids would like to have some input on what the're wearing, but too many opinions can make the whole process miserable. Look for brands that offer similar dresses with different necklines, for example. You can pick the color and fabric; each girl can decide on the style most flattering for her body type.
