Are you looking for something a little different for your bridesmaids to wear on your wedding day? Choosing your bridesmaids dresses can be a tough job. Bridesmaid dresses will be in your wedding pictures, and hang in your girlfriends’ closets, for years to come. Today’s brides often choose a colour palette and then allow their bridesmaids to order similar dresses in that palette. Many stores allow you to mix and match pieces in a dress line to fit each bridesmaid’s taste and figure. If you are opting Mix and Match bridesmaid dresses , here are a few things to keep in mind :
Mix and Match Bridesmaid Dresses by Colours goes beyond the wedding day
Choosing a range of colours from the same family will be a subtle gradation and your bridesmaids will all look similar but not the same. The latest trend in bridesmaids’ dresses is either different dresses in one shade or different shades in one dress style. This variation gives a much understated difference that your guests may not notice right off, but will remember as a unique statement at your wedding ceremony.
Same dress different style
Alternatively, if you choose to dress all your bridesmaids in the same dress, then choose a style that would be best for the largest of the women. This way you will be sure it also fits the slimmest and they can personalize this look with accessories of their choice. In fact, there are many stores that have mix-and-match tops and bottoms especially good for bridesmaids to create a different kind of a look, either in the same color, or different shades to suit individual tastes.
This colour family must be in coordination with your own gown and the décor of the wedding reception. You don’t want your bridesmaids in clashing colors. Don’t choose to dress your bridesmaids in pink if you are having a yellow colour scheme. One of the best places you can buy coordinating bridesmaids’ dresses is the same place as your wedding gown. If you ask the store consultant, she will surely be able to match their own gown with dresses that will not only match, but also be less expensive. Also, keep in mind the age of your bridesmaids if you are thinking of dresses that are too revealing, especially for very young maids.
Keep in mind the weather and the time of your wedding ceremony and choose materials that are appropriate. A semi-formal daytime wedding can have bridesmaids wearing dresses made from fabrics like chiffon and silk, or even sundresses. You can add coordinating accessories like silk flowers, or sashes, hairpins, and wraps. The length of the dress is equally important and the rule of thumb is that if you are wearing a floor length gown, don’t have your bridesmaids in short dresses and vice versa.
