Finally, your “d-day” is nearing and all your close ones are pretty excited to see you standing on the altar, decked up like a princess, and exchanging vows with your beloved. Why just your close ones? I’m sure that even you are pretty excited-cum-tensed about the wedding. Having a mixed feeling of excitement and nervousness is pretty normal; because on one hand, you are going to get hitched for life with your partner and on the other hand, you have to make sure everything is perfect, especially your outfit isn’t it? So, have you started shopping for your bridal look? If yes, then that’s great! But along with purchasing your bridal gown and accessories, make sure you also purchase dresses for the divas. Yes, you got it right; I’m talking about the bridesmaids.
So, do you have any specific mall or designer shop in mind from where you want to purchase the bridesmaid dresses or your gown? If no, then it will be best if you search for pretty bridesmaid dresses online. Trust me, there are numerous online retailers who solely sell bridal gowns, accessories and dresses for bridesmaids. One of the best online stores that I have come across, which has a wide variety of bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses are none other than OkBridalShop. Hence, if possible, once go through their website. I am sure that you will be overwhelmed by the myriad of options they have in terms of colors, styles and cuts.
Now, just finding a store for purchasing bridesmaid dresses or gowns won’t be enough. You have to make sure that you don’t commit any major mistakes when picking dresses for the pretty ladies. You must be thinking, what kinds of mistakes you need to avoid, right? Here’s a list of mistakes that most would-be-brides make, but you need to avoid.
Take a look.
Choosing aesthetics over comfort
One major mistake that most brides commit when shopping dresses for their bridesmaids are they always choose dresses which are just attractive and completely forget about the “comfort factor”. Therefore, I would request, do not commit this mistake because your bridesmaids may not complain about the discomfort, but will surely feel uncomfortable throughout the day while wearing the dresses and wouldn’t be able to enjoy. Best pick chiffon bridesmaid dresses as they are quite alluring. And since the material is quite light and breathable, your lovely ladies won’t feel any kind of discomfort wearing it.
Getting swayed by attractive discounts
I totally understand that you and your family are going to spend quite a lot of money on this entire wedding. But, being a fashion designer, it’s my humble request that please don’t get swayed by attractive discounts while purchasing bridesmaid dresses. Why? Well, it’s because in most of the cases, a bridal store provides discounts when the dress becomes out-of-fashion or too weary. Hence, be really careful when buying dresses from a store that is giving huge discounts.
Don’t take your bridesmaids for shopping
Going for shopping with your close “girl-squad” is undoubtedly enjoyable. But, if you are planning to make them your bridesmaids, then immediately refrain from the idea. Why? It’s because in most cases, a chaos is created. All your bridesmaids won’t have the same choice of colors, patterns, dress material, hemline and etc. So, if you take them together, they might randomly pick dresses that they like and in the end, you may see each one of them has chosen different dresses without any kind of cohesiveness, which cannot even be considered for the ‘mismatched dress trend’. Hence, never give them the option, and instead take the charge yourself.
So, now when you know about the mistakes that brides make when picking bridesmaid dresses, avoid them and choose lovely attires for the beauties.
