5 Tips on Buying Bridesmaid Dresses

These are gorgeous, simply dresses that would be so pretty for a Bridesmaid. And of course you don't need to get the designer version, you can have your own ones made. From left to right, Carven, Issa, and Acne.

[Vancouver], May 10, 2012 - I don't have any personal experience being a bridesmaid, or buying "Bridesmaid Dresses" (that was a formality my wedding did not have) but I've worked in a bridal store and have seen how desperately tragic Bridesmaid Dresses can be.


I have a friend who has a closet full of hideous "Bridesmaid Dresses" (I am pretty sure 27 Dresses was based on her) and I am always flabbergasted that her "friends" expected her to wear those hideous monstrosities, AND made her pay for them! So, because of her, the request of one of my readers, and any future victims of heinous bridesmaid dresses, I have decided to compile a few tips.


1. Consider different body types.
The problem with a lot of the ugly bridesmaid dresses I've seen is that they don't suit all the girls in the party. Do you really want to stick one of your supposedly best friends (or sisters!) in a dress shape she'd never get caught dead in otherwise? No. Even if this means they won't all be in the same dress, you'd prefer a happy bridal party than knowing your friends are going to resent you for the rest of their lives (or seek revenge. See point 5.)

2. Choose a theme, and allow some freedom.
Pick a theme, and let your bridesmaid to choose something that works best for them. That could be a colour, a fabric, or a style of dress. For example if you want everyone in chocolate brown, choose the fabric and allow each girl to pick the shape that best suits her. You can have some guidelines (full length, short sleeve, etc...) but this way the girls can at least choose a shape that will flatter them. Another option is to buy accessories, and let them get a dress they like (ex. you provide a red belt and corsage, everyone buys a black, knee length dress. And then, the girls might actually wear their dresses again!)...read the full article
