Is your sister, cousin or friend getting married and you’ve been asked to be a bridesmaid? Don’t panic, the perfect dress is waiting for you right here. Keep in mind the bride’s wedding colors, the style of the reception venue, and the weather or season when looking at bridesmaid dresses.
As a bridesmaid, you’ll be working closely with the bride in preparing for the ceremony and reception. You’ll be the calming influence and support to a nervous or stressed out bride to be. As well as being beautiful and in style, your dress will need to be practical for the things you’ll be doing during the ceremony and reception.
Usually it’s the bride’s privilege of choosing the bridesmaids’ outfits, but the dresses also need to be comfortable and flattering to each bridesmaid as well. Try to be flexible, this is the bride’s big day, not yours, and one dress shouldn’t get in the way of your lifelong friendship with the bride after the wedding.
Black bridesmaid dresses are a very popular choice because girls know black goes with any other color. Red bridesmaid dresses are also a good choice for the bold color, and red could tie-in with any seasonal theme no matter what time of year the wedding will take place. Another idea is purple bridesmaid dresses, for a princess-y look. Purple is the color of royalty, and one of the most common choices for wedding colors after white. Green is also a nice choice.
It’s a good idea to order your dress as soon as you’ve made the decision on which dress to buy. You need to leave enough time for shipping and possible resizing. A good mark is at least 3 weeks before the ceremony, but not so soon that something might drastically change, like weight loss or gain.
Note: all of our inexpensive bridesmaid dresses are original designs, and unlike other websites, dressesforus.com sends the dress exactly the same as the pictures you’ll see here.
