Wedding Do: Select Bridesmaid Dresses

  |  By Nicole Keen

Try dressing your bridesmaids in different (but complementary) colours.

Once you have your wedding gown all picked out, it's time to figure out what your girls are going to be wearing on the big day. You may have a certain style or colour in mind, but always remember to be considerate of your lovely ladies. Have an honest discussion with them to determine what price range is going to work, and be open to their feedback—they are going to be wearing these dresses after all. It is becoming more and more common to have stylishly mismatched bridal parties with each bridesmaid wearing a different colour or pattern or a different silhouette or neckline. This is a great way to accommodate each girl's skin tone, body type, etc. The other good news is that there are tons of exciting things happening in bridesmaid fashion.
