Wedding Idea : How to Choose the Best Bridesmaid Dresses?

They say every girl is excited to be a bride, but how about being a bridesmaid?

DRESSES

This is one rule that’s had a modern reality
check. ‘Nowadays it all depends on how much control you take,’
says top wedding planner Kathryn Lloyd (kathrynlloyd.co.uk). ‘If
you’re very specific about the type of dress you want, you should
pay for it. It’s your colour choice with your style guidelines and
the chances are your bridesmaids will never wear it again.’

However, if you’re relaxed about the shape and suggest a
flexible colour palette (like blue and greens), then it’s fine to
ask your bridesmaids to contribute. ‘30% to 40% of the dress price
is acceptable,’ suggests Kathryn.

Alternatively, inform each bridesmaid of your budget and your
chosen colour scheme, and if they want a more expensive outfit they
can cover the rest themselves. The same rules apply to bridesmaids
and pageboys. If you want them in sailor suits, start saving up. If
you’re happy with neutral tones, offer to buy them new shoes.

Whatever happens, don’t give anyone full creative reign. You’ve
got your photos to consider, no one wants their cousin’s canary
yellow kaftan stealing the show!
