By the time you accepted your fiancé’s proposal, you probably already decided who your bridesmaids were going to be. Whether you have sisters, best friends from all stages of your life, or even a coworker that you couldn’t live without, the women you choose to assemble your bridal party will be with you along every step of the way. Once you’ve popped the “Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” question to your favorite girls, they’re going to want to know what bridesmaid dress they’ll be wearing.
Long gone are the days when bridesmaid dresses were poufy, bright, and ugly. Today, bridesmaid attire has almost become part of the wedding day décor. Your bridesmaids will be by your side throughout the planning process and at all wedding-related events; however, the dress they wear is entirely up to you. Do you want your bridesmaids wearing long, floor length gowns or short, cocktail dresses? Will you outfit them in the same dress, or similar dresses in the same hue? Many brides are choosing the mismatched bridesmaids look, often times letting their bridesmaids pick their very own gown, as long as the neckline, color, or length has been approved. No matter what you decide, the bridesmaid dress designers in the Inside Weddings directory have tons of styles and colors to match your wedding theme.
Strapless bridesmaid dresses are perfect for spring and summer weddings, while black or sequin gowns are perfect for formal winter weddings. If you choose to go with matching dresses and select a gown for your bridesmaids, be sure to agree upon a budget with your girls so that they feel comfortable spending money on a gown they may only wear once. Find bridesmaid dresses using the Inside Weddings directory, and share your favorites with your bridesmaids directly from the website.
