Choosing the bridal party attire is yet another herculean task that you would be coming across while planning your wedding. As a bride-to-be, you would need to consider every aspect while making your choice including color and type of fabric for the bridesmaid, as well as the flower girl if you intend to have one. The dresses for the bridesmaid should not only be comfortable to wear but also compliment the gown that you have chosen for your wedding. While doing so, take into account their styles, figures and most importantly- the budget. Go shopping with your maid of honor and one or two bridesmaid and this will help you narrow own your selection.
There are three major considerations, give and take, to be taken into account while selecting the bridal party attire- the season or the theme, the tone and the finances of the bridesmaid. Dwelling on these three aspects you can arrange for your bridal party without having to shell out more money than needed. Let’s have a look.
Reason and Season
Almost every weddings now-a-days are based on precise themes and hence, it is of the utmost importance for your bridal party attire to compliment the theme of your wedding. For instance, if a fairy tale wedding is on your mind, your bridal party attire has to be traditional rather than being modern. Likewise, a summer beach wedding will be completely different from one with a winter holiday theme.
The tone is another aspect to consider while planning on your bridal party attire. The more formal the tone of your wedding is, the more precise dresses you would want to choose for your bridesmaid. Also, while in a formal wedding style you would want your bridesmaids to wear identical dresses, in a casual toned wedding your bridesmaids have the freedom to wear dresses though of the same fabric but different variations on a style.
The budget of the bridesmaid is yet another aspect to consider while choosing your bridal party attire. You should be aware of the fact that not all the girls can afford to buy expensive dresses. Younger women who have just started off their adult life may not have the kind of money a mature bridesmaid has to spend on a dress.
Also it is advisable to consider the age and figures of your bridesmaid while making your choice for the bridal party wear. While a bridesmaid in her 30s will look ravishing in a velvet sheath dress, the same cannot be said about another bridesmaid who is far younger than her. She would instead shine more in something like spaghetti straps, something that’s considered more up-to-the-minute.
Bridesmaids are special to you and that gives you all the privilege to choose them. So whatever you choose for them, make sure they have the best.
