Choosing bridesmaid dresses - what to pick?

As a bride, there’s so much planning that goes into your wedding. Flowers, seating arrangements, cars, your dress and, of course, what the bridesmaids will be wearing. Once you’ve chosen who your bridesmaids will be, you’ve now got the task of choosing bridesmaid dresses. What colour will you decide on? Do you have a style in mind? Read NADINE MERABI’s helpful guide to choosing bridesmaid dresses here.

Bridesmaid dresses

The second most important dress on a wedding day is the bridesmaid dress. Yours, of course, is the most important and will look the most beautiful on the big day. However, it is your bridesmaids that lead you down the aisle and start the wedding procession, so they’ve got to look their best too.

Finding the right dress to complement your own can be difficult, especially matching styles you like with the chosen colour of your big day. It can be a difficult task when choosing bridesmaid dresses, so consider our tips on how to find the ideal set of dresses for your big day.

  • Consider the season
  • Set a budget
  • Give yourself time

First off, you must consider the season you’ll be getting married in. The type of dress you pick for your bridesmaids depends on the weather. If it’s freezing cold outside you’ll want to give your ladies some cover on their arms to provide some warmth. But, if you’re getting married in the summer, you have more options.

Set a budget and give yourself plenty of time to decide on styles. Given that there are so many options out there for bridesmaid dresses, it can be easy to go a little overboard on your spending, so set yourself a budget.

Also, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to decide on the type of dress you’d like your bridesmaids to wear. There are other things to consider too, like what colour bridesmaid dresses go with navy suits? And, does the maid of honour wear the same dress as the bridesmaids? You may also wonder, do bridesmaids pay for their own dresses? This may come into your budgeting decisions.

Giving yourself a lot of time to decide on the style and make key decisions gives you the best chance of getting every decision right!
