With their history of pink taffeta, puffy sleeves, and enormous bows, it’s unsurprising that many brides are now opting for non-traditional bridesmaid dresses for their weddings. These days, there are lots of options out there for non-traditional bridesmaids.
One of the biggest challenges for brides is choosing a bridesmaid dress that will look good on everyone. You may be in a situation where one of your bridesmaids is tall and thin with boyish hips, one is plus sized, and one is determined not to wear anything that reveals her upper arms. Instead of attempting to find one dress that will fit all of these women, you should just choose a color and fabric and let the ladies choose their own styles. Lots of bridal companies actually manufacture separates that you can mix and match together while still getting the same dye lot for this reason.
For some brides and their bridesmaids, the cost is the most important factor when it comes to choosing a dress. You want your bridesmaids to look nice and you want them all to match for the photos, but you do not want to burden them with a huge expense. If you are having a casual beach or backyard wedding, instead of having your bridesmaids order dresses from a bridal salon, you can pick out a regular sundress that they can all order online. You can find tons of cute sundresses for less than a hundred dollars and your bridesmaids may be able to wear their dresses to other events in the future.
