Choosing dresses for bridesmaids

When choosing bridesmaid dresses, it is customary for the bride-to-be to choose the style, length and color.
Some brides do ask for input from their bridesmaids regarding the dresses. It's a good idea to take your maid of honor shopping and maybe even a bridesmaid or two to get feedback on dress ideas.

Style and Color of Bridesmaids' Dresses
You will want to consider the figures of your individual bridesmaids before choosing a dress. You'll want their dresses to complement your dress while not taking focus from it. Many brides choose bridesmaids dresses in one of their wedding colors. Your bridesmaid dresses can be a soft pastel shade like pink, powder blue, peach, or lavender, or you can go bold with jewel tones like deep green, royal blue, eggplant, or ruby red.

Since it is customary for the bridesmaids to pay for their own dresses, take into consideration the cost as well as what you think your bridesmaids can easily afford.

Some popular styles for bridesmaids dresses are as follows:
Slip/Sheath Dresses: A simple sheath dress is a popular choice for bridesmaids dresses because not only can they be easily worn again, they are  flattering to most every body type and add simple elegance.

A Line Dresses: A line dresses are flattering for most everyone and come in a wide variety of styles and colors

Empire Waist: An empire waist adds a romantic touch to any dress. If your wedding has a Victorian or medieval theme empire waist bridesmaid dresses would be a great choice.

Trends in Bridesmaid Dresses
Today's bridesmaid dresses are moving away from the dated trend of puffy, ruffle-adorned styles and towards more simple and elegant styles that are universally flattering. Common fabrics for bridesmaid dresses include silk, satin, velvet, taffeta, and organza.

When selecting a bridesmaids dress, take into consideration all the factors. You'll want to choose a dress that you personally like, something that is becoming for all your bridesmaids, and something they can afford. While the final decision is up to you as the bride, it's a good idea to consult with your bridesmaids and get their opinions on dresses. They may have ideas that you haven't thought of!
With a little planning and some fun shopping trips, you can find the perfect dresses for your bridesmaids!
