Happy Friday! I thought it would be fun and different to incorporate my question of the day into a Bridesmaid Diary! I hope you all enjoy a little change.
I’ve been in quite a few weddings in the past 10 years (this new one will make #6) so I know a thing or two about shopping for bridesmaid dresses. Boy oh boy can it be challenging, especially if you have a large bridal party. The hardest part is getting ALL of your bridesmaids with maybe the exception of the Maid/Matron of Honor to agree on ONE dress! Everyone has different styles and body shapes so what’s a bride to do?
Here are some tips Brides:
*You can pick the dress yourself and tell everyone nicely to get sized 🙂
*You can pick a few dresses that range in different styles but all fit together and have everyone pick their favorite one…. *You can email a bunch of pictures of dresses you like and have everyone rate their favorite to least one- the one with the most positive votes gets chosen…..or…….
*You can arrange a day where everyone gets together to try on some styles and figure out what works and doesn’t work- then you can have a girls day or night with some food & drinks!!! Yum!
Give your honest opinion without being a total diva
Cooperate with the bride-it’s her day by the way
Don’t forget a strapless bra when you try on dresses
Don’t forget your shoes at your fitting
Keep a smile on your face 🙂
