The Toughest Parts Of Choosing Your Bridesmaid Styles

Choosing the bridesmaid’s dresses for your wedding is a stressful job. However, if you let professionals help you out with that, it can be enjoyable too. There’s no secret that Azazie is a synonym of quality when choosing your special occasion dress. Since Azazie’s foundation, these dresses have been made to touch the hearts of people who wore it and make something amazing and glamorous in the same way.

SHOP CLEARANCE DRESS

It is not just the exquisite design that we love so much about Azazie. It is about the Azazie’s philosophy that everyone should own custom-made dress. It is also the strategy, materials used and other crafting techniques. Could you perhaps call it an all-encompassing philosophy? Maybe. It’s what makes their products stand out.

Azazie x Details Made Simple Wedding Day CoordinatorEven when you have decided on a color and a style, there are many other things to consider. Take at look at your bridesmaids. You will notice they are all different. That is called being human. They will each have good qualities and they each have issues with their bodies they are not thrilled with. While some bridesmaids seem to be able to wear any cut, hem, and neckline without issue, she is rare. Below you will find a few tips that make choosing the bridesmaid’s dresses a much easier task.

Tradition or Uniformity

Traditionally, bridesmaids wear the same dress. If you are going with this time-proven tradition, it is important to simplify the dress. A dress that is not extremely form-fitting will complement the shapely bridesmaid while assisting others in hiding their flaws. A dress with straps or sleeves will give the look of elegance and will eliminate problems that a strapless dress sometimes brings to the woman with a larger upper body. The length of the dress is important. A short (above the knee) dress or a floor-length dress will work with all body types. A mini or tea-length dress is not as flattering on the very tall or the very short.

If you are less concerned with tradition consider allowing the bridesmaids to choose their own dress in their own style. Set a range of colors for them to choose from and let them know if they are to choose casual, dressy, or formal. Some brides give their bridesmaids full freedom of selection and allow them to make all their own choices. This makes for a fun and unique wedding and some great wedding photos. Visit The Knot for inspiration on how to pull this all together. Step back and let them make their choices and have a modern and stunning wedding party.

Set a budget 

In order to keep the dresses within a certain class and quality set a budget for the bridesmaids to stay within. The dress should not exceed $300 in most cases but should be at least $150. (Of course, that is regular price. If they can find the dress on sale for less that is a bonus!).

One of the hottest colors for the year and a projected best choice for 2017 is Champagne. Champagne is beautiful in an elegant setting, paired with bold colors or accented with quiet creams or ivory. Champagne bridesmaids dresses are stunning next to gold and is accented so well with black; it makes a perfect statement for the formal church wedding. In an outdoor wedding or a beach wedding, aqua, teal, peach and sunset colors work beautifully. An authority on creating your wow factor is Brides.com.

You cannot make everyone happy. It is your special day and it is up to you to create the wedding of your dreams. By being open minded and considerate of the concerns of the bridesmaids, you can make your life much easier. Everyone will be beautiful and you can just relax and enjoy your day!
