How To Choose Bridesmaid Dress Styles To Suit Your Girls

Girlfriends come in all shapes and sizes. So you need to make sure that you choose styles of bridesmaid dresses to suit your maids.

Of course, there's nothing to say that you have to have identical frocks for each maid. In fact, the current trend is rather against this (and it's probably for the best).

Some of your bridesmaids could wear long gowns, some cocktail style and the necklines could be whatever suit your bridesmaids best.

The theme that will hold it all together is the colour(s) you choose for the bridesmaid dresses.

So here's a quick guide to choosing bridesmaid dress styles to suit different physiques, with some suitable bridesmaid dresses by Dessy.
