3. Be yourself
Bridesmaids should allow themselves to wear what they want. Because being comfortable is equally important to looking alluring. If you don’t find a perfect dress according to your body then please don’t hesitate to order your outfit to stitch. The same thing, you can do if you do not found the dress available, you want.
If you are going to order a costume online then don’t go for totally fit dress. Let me tell you a large dress can be alter but what would you do if the dress will be small? Be careful about size.
4. Find complementary dress
As you already know, Bridesmaids are going to enter at venue with Bride. They should wear dresses which not only compliment a Bride’s outfit but also their body and color. We would recommend you to check your dress before wearing it in the wedding. Accessories can add charm to your dress but you should be sure, they go with the dress. Clear a thing in your mind, you don’t have to be overdressed. The less ornaments you will carry the more beautiful you will look. Don’t let your accessories outshine you.
5. Consider the time and place
Some years ago, weddings were not been organized at day but recently, it becomes trend. So many big faces changed the definition of wedding. Bridesmaids should buy the dress with having an idea about time because dark colors don’t shine at day. Today’s generation believe in destination wedding. So, if you are also going to be a part of such kinda function then you have a dress which can compliment the place.
Like western dresses do not go with a cultural place or kind of forts.
6. Be choosy
We would suggest Bridesmaids to be choosy in terms of selecting a dress. Sometimes, we pick an idea and went for shopping and returned back with that one. Without trying something new, how would you know which thing will suit you. Bridesmaid should go for shopping at least 1 or 2 month before the wedding. So that, she can invest time in selecting it. If you do not able to find a perfect style or design then you can either go for a designer or with boutiques. Don’t go alone for shopping, take someone with you. Make sure you have clicked some pictures in the dresses, so that you can find the best for you.
Once, you have found your favorite one then ask to some of your buddies, how does the dress looks on you?. With choosing right dress, choosing right undergarments will help you to look more attractive.
7. Don’t forget trend
Before deciding your dress type, go online and collect some fashion tips “what is trending nowadays?” Fashion changes itself daily. Each bridesmaid wishes to look special and different. Trend is not just about your dress but also your accessories and hair design affect your whole look.
8. Remember it’s not your wedding
Don’t be defensive and anxious because it is not your own wedding. Yes, your engagement in the wedding is important. So, keep your mind open and attentive. Do not spend much money which will affect your wallet later.
You do not need to do much stuff as I earlier mentioned. Wearing tight or so short dress just to look cool or beautiful, definitely it would be a worst decision because it can make you uncomfortable.
At last, we would suggest you to be yourself. We hope these all guidelines will help.
