In a broader view, there really are multiple secrets. Fabric, style, length, and color make or break the look and camaraderie of the bridesmaids with the bride, let alone the entire decoration of the wedding itself. This may sound intimidating, but it really is necessary to pull the look together.
The best advice here is to think of the time of year. Silk Shantung, a heavier and more structured fabric, would most likely work best in the fall, winter, or early spring. Silk chiffon on the other hand, may be better for warmer times of the year.
Length is totally personal preference when it comes to the bride, but the venue is a good thing to think about too. Is the wedding outside during the peak of heat in August? If so, one may not want her bridesmaids to be in long gowns.
Color, as well, depends on the season and personal preference of the bride. If the colors of the wedding are periwinkle and silver, the color of the bridesmaids’ dresses should comply or compliment those colors.
Style is probably the most important of dress secrets. Try to remember that all women come in different shapes and sizes. You may love a cut out back, but if one of your bridesmaids is a size 24, she may feel extremely uncomfortable. In the same respect, bridesmaids’ dresses are not “the sisterhood of the traveling dress”. Just like any other dress, one style does not flatter everyone; so try to come to a happy medium with you and your girls.
Something great that has come up in the past few seasons as well, is different styles of dresses with the same color and fabric. This way, everyone continues to look put together, but each dress flatters each bridesmaid, actually creating less distraction. A sash also always pulls different styles together as one. Most importantly, remember that one designer may have everything you’re looking for.
Jenny Yoo, for example, has a wide variety of colors varying with each fabric. Styles differ with types of fabric, but fabric changes are also available. Sashes as well can be purchased with any style chosen.
As with any aspect of a wedding, bridesmaid dresses can be as simple or complicated as you make them to be, but with the right knowledge and the best intentions, they can really pull a wedding together to be the best day your life.
