So I have most of my details planned for my Sept 2013 wedding already, but I am drawing a blank on bridesmaid dresses.
i don’t want my Bridesmaid or Best Man spending a lot of $$ because they usually can’t wear them again. I also don’t know what style to go with because I have 4 very different BMs. I want it to look good on them all, but do not want different styles for the girls.
What have you fellow bees decided for your bridesmaids???
thanks for the help ladies!
i don’t know if it helps, bdruthers dresses are going to be a deep red color.

Do you have an inspiration board so we can get a feel for what your wedding vision is?

@chipper_bride: What I did was ask each bridesmaid if they had strong feelings about the design, what non-negotiables they had, their color preference in my palatte, and length. We agreed on a dark brown, knee length dress with straps and an A-line bottom. I told them to feel free to look at ideas, but we would start at Davids Bridal because of price. They all agreed on a dress and it took the stress off of me.
If possible, see of you can get the bridesmaids to pick the dress. It helps with budget and they’ll be happier . Plus, it is easer on you

@Pollywog: That’s a fantastic idea. SUPER simple concept, and yet I wouldn;t have thought of it. I was putting a lot of the pressure on myself, and what better way for the girls to pick out a dress they will WANT to wear again.
Awesome suggestion, will definitely be taking that advice. 🙂

I agree that talking to your BMs is the best place to start. See what they want and prefer. I’d start by suggesting guidelines (ie color, preferred legnth or fabric) then seeing what they find.
