Choose girls that you’re most likely to be able to share a laugh with when you’re 80 and your grandkids are getting hitched.
Clarify up front, what are your expectations and if they are to pay.
Spoil them with champagne, massage, small gift.
The more appreciated they feel, the more they will share in your happiness.
So important for the bride to look different from her bridesmaids and they may end up with the short end of the designer gown stick.
Decide hire or purchase
Choose colour and styles – based on theme, body shapes and suiting colours –
Have little cafe conferences once you’ve decided what you’ll be wearing.
Dress colours and styles and differ according to each bridesmaid
Suggestion to use different tones of a colour
Pastels are very popular, but consider vibrant colours as they can look fantastic in photos
Either keep the price down or offer to pay them
Have the bridesmaids buy their underwear and shoes early enough to try everything at the dress fittings.
Seek the help of a Wedding Planner, who can assist with all the small details you may forget.
Bridesmaids Dresses are supportive only and should never upstage the bride.
Formal wedding: elegant gowns with long lines that highlight the waist, in sexy shining fabrics.
Cocktail wedding: smart casuals.
Contemporary: corsets with matching skirts
Shorter styles: Audrey Hepburn. Pretty feminine, sassy and cute.
Summery weddings: Strapless or backless bridesmaids dresses with floral print fabric.
Remember, you will be looking at the photos for the rest of your life, not the bridesmaids.
If shoes are visible, choose a particular style.
Otherwise, if they can’t be seen, give guidelines, “silver kitten stilettos with an open toe.”
Suggest to the bridesmaids to wear the shoes before the day.
Suggest giving jewellery as a gift.
Accessories don’t have to match, but either subtle or chunky.
The same person can do all hair and makeup. A good Wedding Planner Sydney can recommend great suppliers.
Have same nail colours.
The Big Day, Bridesmaids need to:
Sleep, to wake up fresh and energetic.
Give the bride something new, borrowed and blue
Stock your purse with emergencies, like, mobile phone, copy of speeches
Assist the bride all day, eating, bouquet, checking make up and checking dress for photos.
Smile for photos
