Even if the bride’s wedding dress is the most vital, the bridesmaids’ dresses are also pretty important. Locally speaking, bridesmaids have always worn the same dress design. Today each maid may choose her own style and design but not differ much from the agreed dress colour.
A maid should choose a style and design that enhances her strong points while ensuring optimum comfort. This is because the maids’ varying body size may require different styles to suit them.
It’s also important to decide in advance how these dresses will be acquired. You could go for already made ones or go for tailor made ones.
The already made dresses may be a little cheaper and easier to get. However, the tailor made ones may need ample time as measurements have to be taken, the right materials bought and the actual tailoring carried out.
In such a case, the measurements need to be taken on time so that the maids have time try out the dresses and see whether they fit well or if some adjustments have to be made.
You should also ensure that the design you want is the one given to you. If you have got the design from a magazine or have come up with your own, it is very important to draft it on paper or take the magazine with you. This acts as an aid to the tailor.
However it is not good to look for complicated styles. There are certain designs some tailors may not be able to make especially when special machines for such designs are required.
Lastly, make sure that all of your bridesmaids are there when you are shopping for the outfits. This is important because they will all need to be measured so that modifications are kept to a minimum.
When you are ready to order the dresses, make sure that you get them all at once. And always ensure they are within your wedding budget range.
