Everyone knows the show Say Yes to the Dress, but it’s important not to forget the spin-off – Say Yes to the Dress: Bridesmaid! Whether you have three bridesmaids or 13, deciding what your bridesmaids will wear is a big decision.

Traditionally, bridesmaids all wear the same dress. This allows for simplicity and balance, and not too much worry for the bride after the dress has been chosen because you know exactly what your best friends will be wearing! Conditions like the weather and wedding venue should be considered as well before a dress is chosen.

However, you could always let your bridesmaids wear different dresses, as long as they stay in the same color family. This way, they are able to pick a shade and a shape that flatters them individually.

A new, and potentially risky or very fun trend, is letting your bridesmaids pick their own choice of dress and not pre-approving them. Simply give them a few words to describe the wedding – let’s say, “country classy” or “black tie sleek,” and let them show up in what they believe fits that phrase.

If you decide to let your bridesmaids go their own way for dresses, it could be unifying to have everyone in the same pair of shoes, or to get matching manicures. Whether you want everyone in sundresses for your casual afternoon wedding, or evening gowns for an evening black tie affair, it is ultimately up to the bride to decide the best way to choose dresses for her girls. Here’s to pretty dresses and not-too-uncomfortable high heels!
