Hunting for bridesmaid dresses can be one of the most difficult parts of the wedding planning process. Before you decide what style of bridesmaid dresses you want, here are three important points to consider:

  1. The location of your wedding,
  2. The theme of your wedding,
  3. And finally, but most importantly, your personal style.

The location of your wedding

Location. Location. Location. Once you pick out the perfect backdrop for your perfect day, the rest of the pieces should fall into place. The location helps guide you on the style and color of the bridesmaid gown.

For example, a scenic, lush, mountain view wedding would pair perfectly with bold colored bridesmaid gowns to capture the background.

A beach wedding might have bridesmaids wear something a bit softer, maybe soft, pastel colors, so the crystal blue water will pop in the photos.

Whereas a white winter wedding could suggest something a bit more glamorous, yet completely warm, for the bridesmaids, such as a fur coats or sequin gowns.

The theme of your wedding

The theme of the wedding can help guide you towards choosing the right bridesmaid gown for your girls.

For a beach wedding, the dresses could be flowy and airy. A traditional Church wedding could have the opposite effect: maybe choose something simple yet glamorous to match with the decor of the Church or reception room.

Your personal style

Your personal style needs to be at the front of your mind when selecting bridesmaid gowns.
Here are three questions to ask yourself:

What do you like to wear?
Would you enjoy seeing these colors, patterns, and styles at your wedding?
Would you wear it?

Tomorrow, I will be talking about the how to coordinate your style with your bridesmaids style thus creating a beautiful and cohesive wedding party.
