The overall look of the wedding party must be harmonious. Spending a fortune on the bride, yet having bridesmaids looking a tad shabby will bring down the look of the whole affair. Treating the bridesmaids or mother of the bride’s outfitting as an afterthought is dangerous territory. If your wedding party is looking too much less than a million dollars, (looking more than a million dollars is the province of the bride only) this will unfortunately detract from the overall presentation of the big day.

The Style

The look of your bridesmaids must complement you and your gown, of course. The specialised skills of wedding dress designers are valuable as they extend to a consideration of the entire styling of the occasion. As well as creating the perfect day, you will ultimately want to ensure that your nuptial photos are heirlooms, entirely cringe-free, something you will enjoy viewing and treasuring for a lifetime.

The epitome of the princess perfect bride, offset by a bevy of beautiful bridesmaids, is an occasion that is seamlessly styled. The blushing bride must at all costs avoid glaring clashes with the bridal party. It is important the colour scheme chosen by the bride is adhered to, with bridesmaid dresses in colours that are complementary and styles that are elegant and unique, yet affordable.

The Colours and Fabric

The colour scheme is usually the bride’s first consideration. It is traditional that the choice of colour, style and fabric is the domain of the bride; after all it is her special day. However, wedding dress designers are trained professionals also cognisant of choosing colours and fabrics suited to the event’s style or theme, the climatic conditions, and the location. Your designer will also advise of such general stylistic rules as matching the bridesmaid dress length with that of the bride’s gown.

For a contemporary look, pale colours like silver, platinum, ivory, champagne and light sage are fashionable. Your designer knows the finer details of choosing fabrics and may advise you to order all the bridesmaids dresses at once to ensure that they are consistently coloured and cut from the same cloth. Be mindful, though, that whatever colour is chosen, the bride must shine when next to her bridesmaids, and not the other way around.

As stated, wedding dress designers know their drapery. Perspiration stains and clingy or static prone fabrics must be avoided in hotter climes, while specially chosen materials like heavy satin or even a pure silk/wool blend may be perfect in colder areas.

Pleasing all your bridesmaids with your choice of frock is nigh on impossible, however, do consider price, as your maids will be purchasing their own garments. Also consider that wedding dress designers are experts in choosing a style that can complement the differing body types that you will inevitably be faced with outfitting. Working with the same fabric or colour as a unifying factor, and then allowing for some flexibility and tweaking of the style is the forte of good wedding dress designers. With the help of a professional your bridesmaids can enjoy the preparations with a focus on you, rather than agonising over how they will look on your most important day.
