8 Months To Go
Posted on July 15 2016
Who Do You Want in Your Bridal Party?
Its a pretty serious question when you really think about it - these are people who are assisting you in the most important day of your life. The best way to handle choosing your bridesmaids is thinking to yourself "Will I be friends with this person in five years? Will this person truly help me make my big day special? Will this person take their role in my wedding seriously?" If you can't answer a yes to these questions, then maybe this person shouldn't be part of your bridesmaids. You want people who will help you get into your dress, wipe your tears so your make up doesn't smudge, and keep the fun going for you. Choose wisely.
What Style of Dresses Should My Bridesmaids Wear?
The latest trend in bridesmaids is allowing each bridesmaid to choose their own dress so they are comfortable. Most brides give some guidelines to this, such as keeping them all a specific color or length. If this isn't your thing and you want all your bridesmaids to match, then I suggest getting all your bridesmaids together and having them each try on the dresses you like so you all can decide what looks best for the group. What looks fantastic on 6'2" Tina might not look so good on 5'4" Tiffany, and since these people are obviously very important to you, you want them to feel confident. If everyone can't come to an agreement, be prepared to make an executive decision on what the dress will be.
What Color Dress Should My Bridesmaids Wear?
The color of the dresses all depends on the theme and/or season you chose for your wedding. If you are having a very elegant wedding, consider a gold sequin for your girls. If your wedding is more country rustic, a chiffon coral is beautiful. It all depends on the tone you want to set for your big day.
***Remember, Regiss Bridal has a very large collection of bridesmaids dresses from designers such as Allure and Mori Lee. We carry hundreds of styles that come in several colors, but eight months is reaching close to the deadline for bridesmaids gowns to be ordered.
