You have found the Wedding dress & the venue…next bridesmaids dresses.

Lots of decisions.

First things first, it’s your wedding..when it is your Bridesmaids wedding you will wear whatever crazy color or ugly dress they choose, you will spend too much money on a dress you will only wear once. You will do this because you love them, they WILL wear the dress you ask…don’t stress out about whether they love it, They love you…enough said.

Now, being the loving friend that you are, You’re going to consider price as the most important factor but in reality the right color choice will make your Bridesmaids willing to spend more because they will actually wear it again in the right color & style.

You will not look back and say my Bridesmaids dresses were so cute but you will be happy in ten years that your favorite flowers were in your bouquet & in your decor. Look at what’s in season to make your floral cost effective then choose your favorites. Now you have your color palette.

We love The Dessy Group, which has five diverse collections. Dessy Collection, Cynthia Rawley, Lela Rose, Alfred Sung, After Six. Yes, the price point is a little higher but the fabrics are better, silk dupioni, peau de soie, yes your bridesmaids will wear these beautiful dresses again. Another great designer is Bill Levkoff, super cute dresses with a body conscience fit available in satin, European satin & iridescent taffeta. A budget friendly designer is Mori Lee Bridesmaid, The Ava Collection & Affairs Collection. These three collections come in Chiffon, Taffeta Or Satin & offer shawls with most styles and optional jackets. These are just a few of our favorites but there are tons to choose from. Choose a style that compliments your wedding dress. Consider different styles for each Bridesmaid in the same fabric & color.

Yes it’s great to get everyones opinion but remember this is your decision, so make it.
