Advice From Other Brides On Choosing Bridesmaids Dresses

Fashion & Beauty » Bridesmaid Dresses

Choosing a dress that fits every bridesmaid’s personality and body type can be daunting. Some bridesmaids are too opinionated while others are too indecisive. So should you decide on what your girls wear or should you leave the deciding up to them? We asked our Facebook and Twitter followers if their bridesmaids had a say in what they’re wearing. Here’s what they had to say:

“I picked them but they told me whether or not they liked them. They also went dress shopping with me so I got an idea of what they wanted as well. I did pick very usual dresses though.”
- Paula Henley via Facebook

“My girls picked their own dresses. I made sashes and bought wraps to make them match each other.”
- Amanda Hurrie via Facebook

“Yes. I only have one maid of honour and she got to pick her dress and a choice of red or silver.”
- Tara MacDonald via Facebook

“I went to a company that offers all of its dresses in 52 colours. I picked the colour, then told my bridesmaids to pick out any knee-length dress. My maid of honour had to pick out a full-length gown. They oddly all picked the same dress!”
- Jenna Wiegand via Facebook

“No! I was the one to pick the dresses. But I got lucky, they loved them.”
- Kathy Larkin via Facebook

“I picked the colour and they get to pick the style of their choice and budget.”
- Karen O via Facebook

“They got to decide on the style but it had to be a specific colour.”
- @lilsars via Twitter

“I told them to pick any black dress that was above the knee. It turned out that everyone’s dress was different but made of the same material.”
- Jessica Miller via Facebook

“I told them what colour and designer. I wanted marine blue and Alfred Angleo and they could wear any style dress they wanted. If they’re paying for them they should get the dress they’re comfortable  in.”
- Johanna McLellan via Facebook

“Absolutely! I want them to pick a style that they feel most comfortable and pretty in.”
- @alitenwest via Twitter

“Yes- they have to be happy too!”
- Jo Miller via Facebook
