The Do's & Don'ts of Bridesmaid Dresses, Manhattan, New York

From your bridal bouquet to your wedding gown, there are so many important aesthetic decisions to make as you plan your big day. One major decision is selecting a style the bridesmaid dresses, which will help determine the look of your marriage ceremony. Here are a handful of do’s and don’ts when it comes to selecting the attire for your wedding party. 


Consider different styles. 

Your bridesmaids don’t need to wear the exact same cut and style. Ideally, their dresses should flatter their unique figures. Select a particular color that matches your wedding theme, then choose styles that complement diverse body types. 

Think about costs.

If you aren’t footing the bill for their gowns, try to keep costs down. Your bridesmaids will need to pay for shoes, jewelry, hair, and makeup, in addition to the dress itself. Also, set a reasonable budget for your own garments and accessories. 


Skimp on comfort.

wedding gownsYour maid of honor and bridesmaids have a responsibility to make sure your big day goes as planned, so they should feel comfortable in their dresses. Select gowns made from breathable, lightweight fabrics, as well as high heels that have arch support and cushioned insoles. 

Wait to tailor the dresses.

Your wedding gown should fit well, and the same goes for your bridesmaids’ dresses. Make a tailoring appointment for you and your bridesmaids as soon as everyone has their dresses. This should give them plenty of time to make adjustments to the gowns before your big day.
