Finding the Perfect Match

Bridesmaids. The term sometimes has a clichéd bad reputation. For example, Katherine Heigl’s character in the movie “27 Dresses, was given some real doozies! However there are some simple tips you can follow to make sure you provide your bridesmaids with a beautiful dress that they can be proud to wear on your special day and after.



 There’s always a planning stage. Make sure to sit down and figure out what kind of style you are going for. Think about how you want your bridesmaids to compliment your dress but not look like you have multiple brides heading down the aisle. Narrow the dress options by deciding if you are looking for a more formal or casual feel.


Remember one size does not fit all. Search for styles that compliment your bridesmaids individually. Using different dresses with the same color pallet is a wonderful way to ensure the dresses fit your bridesmaid’s body type while keeping the overall connectivity of your wedding. There are a few different ways to do this. You could stick with the same color and use different styles or you could do entirely different colors and styles that still stay within your overall theme.

Notice below, though all of the dresses are different styles they complement each other while providing the best shape for each body type.

 Below, is a beautiful example from the movie Sex in the City, of how different colors and different gowns can also flow together as well as provide the best fit and color for each bridesmaid.

  Make your bridesmaids fashion icons, not fashion victims. Remember to take some time to plan a style that would be best suited to your gown and overall theme. Also, pick dresses that compliment each body type to provide a well fit look that is sure to please your bridesmaids!
