It’s not easy to be a good bridesmaid for your best friend. Besides helping the bride with what she needs, it’s also important to pick your bridesmaid dress. Appropriate bridesmaid dresses will make the wedding look nice. So, let’s share six tips on how to choose the right bridesmaid dresses.

1) Don’t stand out.

It’s the bride’s big day after all. You can’t outshine her. If the group of bridesmaids are not wearing identical dresses, you girls should at least come out in similar styles. Perhaps all your dresses are beaded, or the dresses are in different silhouettes but in the same color or the same floral pattern. You should not look overdressed or underdressed in the group. Talk to the other bridesmaids to make the dresses look consistent with one another.

2) No mini dresses.

Bridesmaids need to take care of many details at the wedding, so bridesmaid dresses must be comfortable and allow easy movement. Therefore, if you go for a short dress, it can’t come with a miniskirt. This is not only to show respect for the bride and groom but also to be practical.

3) Make sure it fits.

When you try the dress on, in case it’s too tight or too loose here or there, don’t let it go. An ill-fitted dress would make you look horrible in photos. You must get it altered to fit you perfectly.

4) Ask the Bride to Let You Use Your Own Cocktail Dress.

If you are the only bridesmaid, you can ask her if she will let you use one of your own cocktail dresses. Your own dress will make you feel the most comfortable. However, it must match the theme color of the wedding.

5) Pick something appropriate for the venue.

If the wedding takes place at a fancy hotel, and the bride and groom are sophisticated people, your dress should be long. Silk and satin would be good options of fabric. However, if the bride and groom are young and outgoing, having a romantic outdoor wedding, then a puffy tulle dress in knee length will be the best choice.

6) Choose a Mandarin dress.

If many of your wedding guests are Chinese, it can be a great idea to pick custom-made Mandarin dresses for all the bridesmaids. This idea can easily come true if there is a good tailor near you. If not, ordering custom-made dresses on line (from a website like Elegente.com) can work out nicely.

 

If time allows, it’s the best to discuss with the tailor about all the details such as length and how form-fitting it should be. It’s important to apply the first five tips and consider your own body type. In addition, place your order far ahead of time. In case your Mandarin dress doesn’t exactly fit you, the tailor can fix it for you. It just takes a little patience.

 

Most people only have one wedding in a lifetime. You can make your best friend’s wedding more impressive by doing your part right!
