In all of my years working in the wedding industry, where to find the best bridesmaid dresses is one of my most commonly asked questions.
Finding a bridesmaid dress to suit everybody can be a lengthy process. First, you’ve got the style. And when all of your bridesmaids are different sizes and shapes, it can be difficult to find a style that suits everyone.
Then you’ll need to decide on a colour. What colour would compliment the rest of your wedding day styling? Does it suit all of the girls? Should you go for mismatched bridesmaid dresses or would you like everyone to wear the same gown?
As well as all of these factors, there’s the price to consider. Regardless of whether it’s you or your bridesmaids who will be paying for their dresses, it’s important to agree on a budget – and remember to factor in shoes, jewellery and accessories.
Finding the best bridesmaids dresses can be a time consuming task on the wedding planning to-do list, but I’m here to help with this post! Nowadays, bridesmaid dress stockists make it easier than ever to get hold of beautiful gowns. With most online stores offering speedy delivery (and often free returns), it’s super convenient to order your girls their dresses and exchange them for an alternative size or style if it’s not quite right.
