Have some ideas in mind

If you head into a bridesmaid dress shop without any clue, then chances are that the choices are going to be a little bit overwhelming. Instead, have some ideas in mind of what type of dresses you are looking for, and you should make it that little bit easier. Think about whether you want short or long, or a mixture as well as which fabrics are your favourite.

Know your budget

It can be easier than you think to get carried away when buying bridesmaid dresses, but if you are paying for them, then always keep this in mind. Know the amount you have to spend on these dresses and always shop accordingly. This means that you won’t fall in love with dresses that you simply cannot afford.

Give yourself time

Much like many things that need to be planned during wedding prep, bridesmaid dresses can take a while to arrive. It is a good idea to give yourself a 6-month window, particularly if you think that your dresses are going to need altering.

Make sure they are the right size

It is much easier to make a dress smaller than bigger, so make sure your bridesmaid know that this is the plan, and not to be offended by the dress that you have ordered. You never know what might happen in the future, and whilst they may promise that they will lose weight, it is always a good idea not to bet on this.

Don’t worry if they want different things

Bridesmaids can be difficult creatures to please. Particularly if you have some that are different sizes and ages. Rather than trying to find one dress to suit them all, you may be able to find them an individual dress that works together. This means that everyone is happy and they all look beautiful too.
