Now that you’ve found your dream dress, it’s time to start another gown shopping journey: the quest for the perfect bridesmaid dresses australia. No matter your wedding style or the size of your bridal party, we’ve got everything you need to know to find the right dresses for your girls.
Have a meeting and collect your bridesmaid’s suggestions: For the most part, people know what they’re signing up for when agreeing to be a bridesmaid. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still ask questions. Instead of trying to figure out what dress style everyone will love, ask if anyone has a no fly list. Maybe your redheaded bestie hates the color orange, your small-chested sister won’t wear strapless dresses, and your gender non-conforming cousin doesn’t mind dresses, but would prefer to wear something less fitted. It’s way easier to narrow down from a list of don’ts than from a list of must haves.
Narrow down the range of choice: If you care about cohesion, then choose a designer you like and narrow it down to a color or color family you like best and let your bridesmaids choose from there. Don’t care about cohesion, but still want your wedding party to feel supported? Outsource that ish, my friend. Brideside’s style consultants are here for as much or as little help as you want. Since they’ll already be in charge of emailing your wedding party to help with sizing and ordering, they’ll gladly walk your wedding party through the selection process and help keep an eye out for any inconsistencies or weird color combinations.
Take the wedding dance in mind: Let me paint a picture for you: you got to a bridesmaid dress store, find a dress you like, try it on, and it looks great, so you buy it. Then the wedding rolls around. You realize you just accidentally flashed your best friend’s uncle and now you have to spend the rest of the night dancing with one hand hiking up your gown. Yeah, I’ve been to that wedding too. Of course, a multitude of problems can be avoided by simply choosing dresses with straps that you can wear with a normal bra, but if you’ve got your heart set on a strapless design or unique neckline, start by talking to your Brideside style consultant to figure out which styles have built-in support.
