After you’ve picked a flawless gown for your venue and theme, it’s time to choose dresses for the lovely ladies in your bridal party. This may be a difficult decision, and as you already know, it’s impossible to please everyone. But to avoid agonising over the right choice, here are 6 signs you’ve found the perfect bridesmaid dresses:

  1. The dresses work for the time of year. Just as you did with your bridal gown, it’s important to think about the time of year you’re getting married and what colours and styles might work best.
  1. The dresses fit with your inspiration for the day. Did you pin your favourite wedding images on Pinterest? Maybe make a scrapbook? Wherever you dreamt up the look and feel of your wedding day, if the bridesmaid dresses are in line with your inspiration, then you’re on the right track

  1. The maid of honour thinks they’re fabulous. If your closest friend and a person who will be wearing the dress is happy with it, snap those gowns up!
  1. You still have plenty of time to order and make alterations. We recommend ordering at least 4-6 months in advance to avoid any stress. Every woman’s body is different, and even if you have several different gown styles in the same colour to suit their body types, there will probably need to be 1-2 rounds of alterations for them too. 
  1. The gowns will make your bridesmaids feel beautiful. You want the ladies in your wedding party to enjoy the day and to feel their absolute best! You will be the most-loved bride ever if you choose bridesmaid dresses that will make them feel gorgeous too. Compare the dress you choose with your bridal party’s body types and see if it works with these handy tips:
    • Full chested ladies should avoid both high and plunging necklines – try a sweetheart or V-neck instead.
    • Curvy girls look particularly fabulous in column-shaped gowns.
    • Athletic types will love you if you emphasise the waist they work so hard for with a gorgeous belt or detailing under the bust.
    • Petite ladies: go for clean lines rather than busy patterns or highly embellished designs.
  1. The bridesmaids are happy with your choice. Ultimately the decision is yours, but it can be beneficial to get opinions from the ladies who will actually be wearing the dress. If they’re happy and you’re happy, what are you waiting for
