ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID…
Every bride says it, “this is a dress you will be able to wear again!” Stop fooling yourselves ladies; they’re never going to wear that dress again, it’s going to be expensive, and mostly likely at least one of your bridesmaids is going to secretly hate it! Never fear, choosing a bridesmaids dress that everyone will love and look fabulous in does not have to be a chore. Just head over to Bella Bridesmaid in Austin on North Lamar and they will take great care of you. In fact, they will even come and dress your ladies on the big day. While you are there check out the line from Two Birds Bridesmaids. It is the best!
A few DO’s and DON’TS when selecting your bridesmaid’s gowns…
DO: Consider your gown and the location of the wedding. You of course, you want them to compliment each other.
DON’T: Feel like you have to match the dresses to your color scheme or decor. In fact, don’t match them!
DO: Go with a neutral color (white, ivory, taupe, champagne, black, gray, brown and sometimes navy) and always pair with a great metallic shoe.
DON’T: Expect your bridesmaids to shell out too much for their dresses. Being in a wedding comes with a big financial commitment, don’t make it more challenging by choosing a dress that is unaffordable.
DO: When possible, consider picking up the bill for the dresses, or maybe even allowing them to wear their own dress (with your approval, duh!) in a color of your choosing. Basic black always works best for this.
