Choosing bridesmaids dresses can be a tough decision for a bride, but it doesn’t have to be! An easy way for the bride to eliminate some stress is to let her bridesmaids pick out their own dresses. I realize that letting other people make decisions about the wedding is likely any bridezillas worst nightmare; however, I’m not insinuating that the bridesmaids should get to have a free-for-all. Instead of trying to tackle the daunting task of finding a dress that all of your girls will love, set some guidelines and allow them to pick out their own dresses, with which they are sure to adore. Doing this alleviates stress on your end and ensures that each of your bridesmaids are happy!

Let’s be honest, it’s not often that a single dress looks flattering on everyone. Naturally, everyone is made up of different shapes, sizes, and body types, which makes them uniquely beautiful. As the bride, it’s important to make sure that all of your bridesmaids feel comfortable standing next to you on your special day. So why not allow your bridesmaids to find a dress that compliments their own natural beauty? By allowing them to embrace their differences you can ensure that your girls feel confident standing by your side.

When allowing your bridesmaids to choose their own dresses there’s one thing to keep in mind- cohesiveness. You want to make sure that all of the dresses mesh in a way that compliments one another. Now, there are a couple ways to go about this.

You can pick a color and allow each bridesmaid to choose a particular style in that color.

Or, you can pick a color scheme and allow each woman to pick a color within that color scheme, as well as a style that compliments them.

Either way, your bridesmaids are sure to look stunning. In the end, you just want the dresses to come together in a cohesive way. So brides, don’t stress yourself out trying to find a gown that all of your girls will love. Let them pick out their own dress, so that they can feel beautiful and confident standing by your side on your special day!
