Your bridesmaids' gowns
A gown to suit
With so many options for today’s bridesmaids the fear of looking like a pink meringue or Little Bo Peep are a thing of the past.
That said, finding a gown that will suit different tastes and will flatter each woman in colour and style can be challenging.
One solution is to let each bridesmaid choose a dress that reflects her style and flatters her figure. Don't be afraid to give your bridesmaids free reign with the dress choice.
If the wedding is themed, which does add a personal touch, the bridesmaids will want to keep the theme in mind when choosing their dresses.
Today’s styles include separates as well as dresses. These can be topped with jackets or pashminas. The trends allow today’s bridesmaids to find something that flatters just about everyone.
Lengths are another consideration. A tea-length bridesmaid dress falls between the bottom of the knee and the bottom of the calf, roughy three or four inches above the ankle. This length is most suitable for semi-formal and casual weddings. Attractive on most figures, however, it is wonderfully versatile and has gained in popularity over the years.
If you are planning an outdoor wedding you will want to take into consideration the setting and the cermony while choosing the dresses that will complement the wedding.
If you have a specific flower and colour in mind for the bouquets you will want to take this into consideration when choosing a colour for the bridesmaids’ dresses.
Matching shoes with the dresses will achieve a co-ordinated look that feels natural
