Find a good balance between dresses that fits your overall vision and styles that your ‘maids will love. Don’t forget that although it’s your wedding, you asked these girls to stand by your side for a reason. Allow their opinions to be heard and appreciated, but at the end of it all, you get the final say. Your girls are going to be a huge part of the wedding day (standing up at the ceremony, posing for pictures, sitting at the head table, dancing the night away, etc.) so make sure they look great and feel even better!
Choose a fabric that’s actually comfortable. Comfort is key, and fabric does matter. A lot of brides and her ‘maids aren’t necessarily familiar with different fabrics so being able to try things on to feel how they fit, flow, and breathe is super important. On program and see which styles and fabrics you like ahead of time. The last thing you want is to put your girls in a style that they can’t even bust a move on the dance floor in. Chiffon gowns are always our top choice for comfort, since it is a lighter weight fabric you can easily move around in!
Ask them what they want to wear and be open to ideas. Your ‘maids are going to have opinions on the bridal party attire and so are you. By no means does that mean that you need to go through with their suggestions, but by simply acknowledging and thanking them for the idea.
