Bridesmaid Dresses Buying Guide

Post by arwb2008 on Thu Feb 25, 2010 8:07 pm

It has been said that the role of the bridesmaid dates back to pagan times, set in place to lure evil spirits away from the bride. The point was to surround the bride with “look alike,” thus confusing the demons and saving the wedding. That’s a pretty big responsibility. These days, we don’t necessarily choose bridesmaids based upon superstition, but rather we choose the women that we love the most to stand by and support us on our big day. However, if warding away evil is your master plan, you can always dress the girls in a hideous fuchsia frock that is sure to frighten away even the Devil himself.
A Few Tips
The options for wedding themes are endless and so are the options for bridesmaid dresses, though there are a few factors to think about when choosing what your favorite ladies will wear. Keep in mind that you, as the bride, do have the final say, but it is nice to take the bridesmaids’ skin tones and shapes into consideration. Once you have an idea on what kind of dresses you like, ask them for opinions on color or style, but be warned that you can never make everyone happy.
• Body Shapes and Sizes: Even if you love that tight-fitting Pink Bridesmaid Dresses, it may not look flattering on some of your girls. You will want them to look beautiful and they will want to feel the same; do everyone a favor and find a style that is flattering for all, or work with a bunch of different styles in coordinating colors.
• Colors: Base your color scheme around the season and theme of the wedding. It is best to keep light colors with the warmer months and richer hues in the autumn and winter. Neutral colors such as Champagne Bridesmaid Dresses will work all year long.
• Feeling and Theme: Think about the formality and theme of your wedding. The materials, colors, and styles of dresses will certainly be different for a wedding on the beach than one in an elegant castle.
Dresses by Fabric
These popular fabrics have been pleasing bridesmaids and brides for years.
• Chiffon: Chiffon Bridesmaid Dresses often come layered over an opaque layer. Their breezy and light style makes them perfect for spring and summer.
• Iridescent Organza: One of the most popular materials lately, iridescent organza dresses come in many fun colors and have a subtle feminine sheen.
• Satin: You can find Satin Bridesmaid Dresses in almost every color, which is always a perk. The down side is that the fabric highlights every curve and may make some bridesmaids feel self-conscious.
• Silk: Dresses made of silk give off a drapery, flowing feeling to any dress. Often coming in rich colors, this fabric is perfect for autumn or winter weddings.
• Taffeta: Taffeta Bridesmaid Dresses have a rich look to them, but can often be very heavy in material. More material equals more money, making this choice pricey at times.
