The first thing to do is to choose your wedding dress. Once you have done this it will be much easier to choose your bridesmaid dresses and hence bridesmaids shoes and jewellery. It is nice to coordinate the bridesmaids dresses with the flower girls and grooms. It is even worth considering coordinating subtle touches with the decorations, however don’t go too over the top. You don’t want them to camouflage into the surroundings.
When selecting the right bridesmaid dresses it can be made difficult if there is a large age range or if you have millions of bridesmaids. If you are going to go for all the same dress- the best thing to do is to go simple as it is more likely to flatter more people. However this is now more of the past and actually it might be better to be more flexible. Bridesmaids may be different heights and have different figures, there may be a large age range or they may be from different cultures.
One way of getting around the problem is to choose a colour palette that you like or you are using in your wedding and then ask the bridesmaids to select their dresses themselves. This means they will then choose something in their budget and something they are comfortable wearing. A good thing to agree on is the length of dress as it does add some uniformity to the picture. Why not consider a two piece? It differentiates the bride from the bridesmaids and allows much more flexibility in terms of the variety of figures.
If your bridesmaids are happy…you will be!
