Sporty? Arty? New mom? Here are bridesmaid dress ideas for each of your very different maids

Miv N Match Navy Bridesmaid Dresses

When I look around at my friends, they're quite different.

Some are real home bods. Always doing a spot of decorating or DIY. Fabulous cooks. I always chat with them when I need some inspiration on what to cook, what to plant in my garden in a certain area or how to cram my clothes into the storage space I have available.

Then there are my sporty friends who live in the gym, on the tennis court and always seem to be planning a competitive run or event. Good for motivating me when I feel a bit sluggish, need to get fit for skiing or want to sort out my post-Christmas fitness.

And then I've got friends with young families who are up to their necks in car seats, diapers, soft play centre dates - and always seem to be announcing that they're having another baby.

At the other end of the scale are my career women friends who inspire me with their energy, clear thinking, ambition and time management skills. I look forward to hearing about their travels.

So what should they all wear?

If you've chosen a group of bridesmaids who are all very different (and of course, they may not know one another) then you're going to have to put the work and research in to make sure that they feel comfortable and looking their best in whatever dress you choose.

What you really shouldn't do is just present your girls with a dress that's one style suits all. Because it probably won't. We're all different shapes, sizes and have features we like and others, not so much. It's a case as ever, of focusing on the good and disguising the rest. So bearing in mind the types of girl above, I've put together some dress styles by Dessy that might suit athletic types, new moms or moms-to-be, romantic types and those who are always on the move.

For a domestic goddess who's a bit of a romantic ...
Something a little bit floaty, classic and understated. Breezy chiffon and one shoulder bridesmaid styles - contemporary and classic all at the same time.

For the fitness guru...
Sporty girls usually have beautifully toned arms, waists and legs. So let them shown them off in a fitted, sleeveless bridesmaid dress.

The girl who's just had a baby or is expecting one...
Maternity bridesmaid dresses are designed to flatter - and if your friend has had a baby fairly recently, she'll feel comfortable wearing one too.

And for the girl who's always traveling...
Our convertible Twist Dresses are perfect for travelers as they pack beautifully and just shake out on arrival. Your bridesmaid can drape hers to suit her - and she'll find it a fabulously useful wardrobe addition in the future, long after your wedding day.

We've shown all the dresses above in shades of Navy, but you'll find them in a multitude of different colors.

Another perfect destination wedding bridesmaid dress is our Dessy Collection Style 2928 which is a full length strapless chiffon dress with a sweetheart neckline and draped bodice, we think indigo rose is perfect for those sandy beaches.

High-Low Circle Skirts: At the 2015 Golden Globes, "Girls" star/creator Lena Dunham wore a Zac Posen red satin dress with high-low circle skirt, and she looked stunning! This spring, we are also loving the high-low circle skirt for our bridesmaid dresses! For example, our Alfred Sung Style D699 is a full length strapless sateen twill dress with a sweetheart neckline and high-low circle skirt. Our After Six Bridesmaids Style 6718 is a full length matte satin modified halter dress with a high-low circle skirt. We also have our Alfred Sung Style D698, which is a full length sleeveless sateen twill dress with bateau neckline and scoop back and a modified high-low circle skirt. This particular style allows your bridesmaids to have some fun when it comes to the shoes for the wedding!


Alfred Sung Style D699

Various Colors and Fabrics: This spring, brides will have several colors and fabrics to choose from for their bridesmaid dresses. The only problem the bride and her bridesmaids will have is picking just one color and fabric! To make the choice a bit easier, we recommend our Pantone Wedding Color Guides . And, if you're stuck on which fabric you want for your bridesmaids, we offer up to 5 FREE fabric swatches, that we promise will make your color and fabric choice a breeze!

Now all we need is for spring to hurry up and get here!

Being able to wear your bridesmaid dress after the wedding is something bridesmaids are told over and over again, and while some do actually wear their dresses to other formal events, most end up leaving it hanging in the back of a closet for eternity.

Here are some ideas that will gives any bridesmaid a chance to wear the bridesmaid dress again:

On a first or second date: Is he taking you to a nice restaurant and you have nothing in your closet to wear? Why not wear your bridesmaid dress?

One great example would be the Alfred Sung Style D681 bridesmaid dress and you can complete the look with a pretty clutch.
