I fell in love with this After Six Bridesmaid dress from the moment I saw it. It is a full length one shoulder matte satin gown with modified bow detail at the shoulder and matching inset waistband at natural waist. Slit at side front of skirt. I thought this is the perfect dress that would suit any bridesmaid. It can be found at Dessy.com.

This Lela Rose Style bridesmaid dress, which comes in a variety of colors for fall, is a full length one shoulder crinkle chiffon dress with matching sash and slight shirring at front skirt. It can be found at Dessy.com.

I loved the punch of color this Alfred Sung short dress offers. It is a cocktail length strapless peau de soie dress with shaped inset midriff and pleated skirt. And how convenient this dress is with pockets at side seams of skirt.

Say No to That Hideous Bridesmaid Dress

Say No to That Hideous Bridesmaid Dress

Anyone who has seen the movie “27 Dresses” with actress Katherine Heigl will remember how she tried to convince the wedding writer played by actor James Marsden what it means to be a good bridesmaid and that some of the bridesmaid dresses in her closet “would look good on everybody.”

Brides while this is your day, you can’t forget your bridesmaids. Your closest friends and family members have accepted to be part of your day as a bridesmaid so it is important to think of them when choosing the right bridesmaid dress.

Here are some tips to make the decision a little easier:


    • Pick at least five options with different styles for bridesmaid dresses at different price points.

    • Brides, if you have a specific color/style in mind investigate various lines that will satisfy both your color and style ideas before you present them to your bridesmaids.  It will eliminate any aggravation down the line.

    • Before you pick a dress, be conscious of the time of year you are getting married. Not all colors work for all seasons.  You wouldn’t want to do a dark color in the middle of summer or a light color for a winter wedding.

    • When you are narrowing your dress choices, take a bridesmaid with you that is top heavy and one that is bottom heavy to help you narrow down your choices in a bridesmaid dress.   You want your girls to feel good about being part of your wedding and in the dress they are wearing.

    • The bridesmaid dress should in some way compliment the wedding dress, make sure when you and your bridesmaids are looking for dresses that you are keeping this point in mind.

    • Just because you love a certain color or have a certain color in mind, be aware of skin tones. Pick a color that works for all of your girls.  Have a couple of colors in mind, don’t pigeon hole yourself with one color.

    • Make sure that all girls are present to try on the dresses on before you settle on a decision.





  • Any bridesmaid dress that does not fit a person’s body right will take attention away from you as a bride.

  • If you are going to have dresses hemmed, the length should be no more than half an inch or three quarters of an inch from the floor. No one wants to see the shoes, no matter how pretty they are.

  • If you are going to do short dresses, make sure the girls have the same shoes.  And find a shoe that is comfortable and at a good price point.

  •  Consider chiffon since it can be the most forgiving of fabrics for bridesmaids.  It will hide a girl’s imperfections and makes everyone look the same.

  • Make sure your girls pick a size that is right for them; sometimes measurements can make them get a size bigger than they actually need.

  • If you are going with t-length dresses, make sure everyone has the same length.

  • No stockings.  Especially if the shoes are open toe. It is not flattering.

  • Straps are important to consider especially when it comes to the season, time of day and what the wedding dress looks like. In warmer months,  spaghetti straps are a good option.  In the winter, consider thicker straps that will keep your bridesmaids warm.

  • As a bride,  educate yourself on trends to get some preliminary ideas of what you may want for your bridesmaids.  But remember not all the latest trends will look good on everybody.

Vintage Wedding Bridesmaid Dresses

Vintage Wedding Bridesmaid Dresses

A vintage wedding theme is growing ever more popular. It is a fun and unique way to celebrate your Big Day. When it comes to choosing bridesmaid dresses for a vintage theme there are a few ideas to consider.

vintage wedding bridesmaid dress

It's important to remember that most people think of  the term 'vintage' as describing the '40's '50's or '60's. These decades all have their own unique characteristics of course but generally speaking there some top tips for choosing bridesmaid dresses within the vintage wedding theme.

Consider going Tea Length: The long glamorous look is great for today's bridesmaids and even for old Hollywood, but a vintage theme usually conjures up memories of tea-length dresses in great fabrics and colors. If you are going with a 70's theme however, think longer lengths with courageous prints and/or empire waists.

Look for square cuts: Square cut neck lines and hem lines are loves of the past and never miss a beat when incorporated into a vintage wedding theme. Think bright, fun colors: Especially if thinking a 50's or 60's style of dress it's a great idea to not be shy with your color choices. These eras were known for their experimental forward fashion.

Accessories: pearls and costume type jewelry are a must to accent any vintage wedding theme. Choose pieces that are striking and bold. Don't be afraid to be bold: Add can cans, polka dots and prints to your dress choices. Bottom line, have fun with this great wedding theme!   Styles pictured: D568, D580, LR182, LR175

You can dress your maids in contrasting colours - they don't have to all match. Choose dresses in autumn colours that suit them - one of your girls might suit a golden shade, another might look a dream in green ... Let them come with you to decide.
