Finding and Choosing Bridesmaid Dresses

Brides aren't the only ones getting dressed up these days, bridesmaids are too. Every woman has a story about the awful bridesmaid's dress they had to wear, and how she was promised it would be something she could wear again. There is nothing worse than having to walk down the aisle in a puffy pink dress that you hate and had to pay for. Luckily times have changed and bridesmaid dresses have become more elegant and wearable more than one time. Designers like Serafina and Vanessa Fox, in New York City, have opened up the market for bridal wear supplying modern bridesmaid dresses for all types of wedding parties.

Today's bridesmaid dresses come in a variety of lengths and colors. It is wise to begin shopping for your bridesmaid dresses 4-6 months in advance because of ordering and shipping time, as well as allowing time for fittings. Nowadays bridesmaids do not wear the same dress; instead it is recommended that bridesmaid's dresses are fit for specific body types. Before you go to the designer and begin to look through dresses get the measurements for all your bridesmaids. It is always helpful if you bring pictures of the bridesmaids because measurements don't always tell the whole story.

The first time that you meet the designer, go alone. The worst thing you can do is bring all the bridesmaids with you. If there are too many cooks in the kitchen, nothing will get cooked at all. Bring your mother or father if you think you want someone to come with you. Talk with your designer about styles, fabrics, and accessories for your bridesmaids.

Try to think about what your bridesmaids can afford because typically they lay out the money for the dress. The more expensive the fabric is the more expensive the dress will be. Try to keep the dresses in a price range that all your bridesmaids can afford. Your second or third visit to the designer should be the time you bring the bridesmaids.

As a group you can decide what styles and colors are the best. Everyone shouldn't wear the same dress because body types differ. Different styles look better on different body types. Your bridesmaids should feel sexy and comfortable in their dresses. Popular trends have shown that strapless and spaghetti strapped dresses in all lengths are the most wanted bridesmaid dresses. Strapless dresses allow for better freedom of movement which will increase the comfort.

Bridesmaid dresses have become more elegant with a lot more styles and colors to choose from. Make sure that you work with your bridesmaids as a group to determine what the best dress will be. Because bridesmaids often pay for their own dress it is not just the choice of the bride anymore. Let everyone voice their opinions and make sure everyone is comfortable. This may seem like hard work, pleasing everyone, but the designer will help you.
After the dresses have been ordered and shipped it is time to get the dresses fitted. Speak to your designer about how many girls should show up at a time for the fittings. Usually a single dress fitting can take up to an hour so it is probably best if each bridesmaid makes her own appointment to get fitted. You, as the bride, should attend each fitting. If there is something you don't want or like, discuss it with your designer and the bridesmaids. For the most part, bridesmaid dresses should fit into the style of your wedding but should be nice enough that the bridesmaids can wear them again. This is one of the most important factors for bridesmaids when choosing a dress; they want to make sure it is something they can wear several times since they are paying for it.

Casual Wedding Dresses: Dare to Be Different - Dress, Shoes Ballet Flat, Handle Bag

Casual Wedding Dresses: Dare to Be Different

A really hot trend in the marriage industry currently is casual wedding dresses. Many brides have been leaning more toward the less formal dresses rather than the Victorian era dresses. It is becoming increasingly common to wear pastel colors such as pinks, greens and lavenders, as was popular many years ago. But know that when you choose casual wedding dresses, the sky is the limit and you can do anything you want to.

The popularity of casual wedding dresses means that they can be found in many places now. Many bridal stores are carrying informal gowns. And besides the many sources on the Internet, you always have the option of making your own wedding dress, of course.
Regardless of where you shop for casual wedding dresses, keep in mind that if you want a theme wedding you'll need to look for a very specific sort of wedding dress. Think about what sort of clothing you would wear to another type of event with a similar theme. As an example, if you were to choose an English Royalty theme for your wedding you would want your dress to be quite formal. But if nature is going to be highlighted in your wedding plans, you may want to purchase a less formal dress.
Following are a few ideas for themes that would work well with casual wedding dresses:
Casual wedding dresses would fit right in with a Western-themed wedding. A formal wedding gown would be out of place at a country themed wedding, be it a small back yard party or a large outdoor barbeque celebration.
A garden wedding is an idyllic alternative that calls for a casual wedding dress. Chic summer fashions are a good choice for this type of ceremony.
If you're going with a fun theme that shows your love for dogs, casual wedding dresses are almost a requirement. Your canine theme could be inspired by your own four-legged family members, or a beloved Disney film. Inspiration is all around for your critter-friendly theme; and if you are a feline fanatic, let your cat inspire you!
Beach weddings work great for an informal style wedding ceremony. A strapless or halter dress is a terrific choice for this type of wedding.
There are really quite a few wedding themes that would lend themselves to wearing a romantic wedding dress that is still comfortable and casual. You can use a romantic Hollywood film for your inspiration, and adapt it to your own style. But decide on the theme for your wedding first - then you'll know what kind of casual wedding dresses you should begin shopping for.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: Small Verified Purchase
Fits great. Even though the girl in the video is much taller than I am, I am 5'3", this dress hits just above my knee and is quite a classy look for a wedding I am going to in Sept. I weigh about 120 lbs and have a 36C chest. Just a bit tight cross the top but the small is just fine, to exchange for a medium would make the dress longer and looser. A great buy. I am totally satisfied.

Very Flattering

I bought this to wear to a wedding in July. I thought it may be too casual but, I was wrong it is very flattering and perfect as a guest to a wedding. I have a pair of Vince Camuto Blue/Silver open toe pumps that I have never worn and this dress matches them perfectly.

Perfect event dress. The length is sexy and the cut is super comfortable. Add great heels and because the length is somewhat short, i think it has great sex appeal.

It's uncomfortable and hurts my foot but if it was made in my size, I wouldn't have to wear a size that doesn't fit now, would I. Start a trend and make the good ones in all sizes for all people.
