The process of choosing your bridesmaid dresses is supposed to be an enjoyable experience for you and your ‘maids! Try not to let all of the decision making stress you out and remember to just have fun with it!
The theme you choose for your wedding also can help in choosing your bridesmaid dress color. For example if you are throwing a rustic/vintage wedding, softer, more muted colors would work, where as if you are having a more modern wedding, black and white would make more sense. Your color should reflect the theme of the wedding and complement your wedding dress, whether it’s diamond white, eggshell, or blush.
Then Keep the weather in mind. It’s easy to get wrapped up in a particular look that you saw on Pinterest, until the actual wedding day comes and you realize that all of your ‘maids are either freezing or overheating. I’m definitely not saying that you have to have them wear long bridesmaid dresses in the winter and short bridesmaid dresses in the summer, but if you’re choosing to do short bridesmaid dresses for a winter wedding, make sure to provide them with some type of covering such as a shawl or faux fur coat. For summer, long dresses can be tolerable, but you’ll want to find light-weight styles such as a light chiffon fabric and maybe provide them with fans, and bottled water throughout the day, of course – especially if you’ll be outside a lot!
