I think the prettiest bridesmaids that I’ve seen are wearing non bridesmaids dresses.

You could pick a color and let them each pick a dress

@Holly77:  Thanks a bunch. They loved that they could style their dresses however they wanted 🙂

I was in a wedding two years ago, and we purchased Henkaa dresses in purple.  I haven’t worn mine since, but I’ve been a bridesmaid 12 times and with the exception of one black dress, have never worn any of them again.

My observations on the Henkaa dress: beware if your bridesmaids are big-chested.  Some of those styles look amazing and versatile, but in the wedding party I was in, we didn’t have many options since we all needed good bra coverage and support. 

Also, the dresses are pretty clingy, so be careful.  If possible, go to the actual store and get help tying the dresses in a style that flatters each bridesmaid. In my case, since we were scattered all over the province, we ordered online and tried to learn from YouTube videos. It was a total gong show.

That being said, I’m sure they have the potential to be gorgeous! The previous poster has some great pictures of her bridesmaids in these dresses.

@parada:  Totally! It looked great on all their body types for sure.

@raleigh:  Thanks 🙂 

In the case of really large chests, there’s actually a tube top-type thing you can buy from them for extra coverage.

@lorelai:  Oh! Probably would have been good to know about the tube tops a few years ago. We found our issue was trying to find a cute style that hid our bra straps (ruling out many the strapless and one shoulder styles).  Best of luck in finding some great dresses!

They’re GORGEOUS!

My MoH is wearing a floor-length aqua dress so she’ll never wear it again (but it was only $75!) and my other Bridesmaid or Best Man will be 8.5mos pregnant, so she’ll probably never wear it again, either (she picked her own awful, ugly, tasteless dress that looks club approprite oh it is AWFUL)
