- Wedding: April 2010
It’s really can be VERY challenging to chose bridesmaid dresses. I am thankful I’ve been in so many weddings over the years, because it helped me decide what look I wanted for my wedding!
I must say I have been fortunate to have never worn a horrible bridesmaid dress! In fact, I really have re-worn two of my seven dresses (just like every bride will tell you)! My college room mate was way ahead of her time, and did something that I loved- she gave us a color and let us choose dresses/separates according to our own taste. This concept is now new, and has gained popularity for obvious reasons.
“Matching dresses are for girl scouts…” – both humorous and true. Women LOVE choices. Since we are all uniquely shaped and fashioned, it only makes sense to allow a choice in what dress you ask your bridesmaids to spend a small fortune on for your wedding wedding. 😉
All of my bridesmaids have chosen a completely different look, in the same color for our wedding, and I’m so excited about how it will look together! Stores like David’s and Alfred Angelo have some great options for the budget minded bride.
How did you let your bridesmaids show their personality? What was your experience in choosing dresses?
