Summer is wedding season and there are few things more arduous for a bride than picking out her own dress, but picking out bridesmaid dresses is one of them. The key to finding the right bridesmaid dress is price and availability. If you are a bride and looking for the perfect dress for your ladies, don’t go down that road of worrying about whether or not they can wear it again. No matter what the dress, they are rarely ever worn again and besides, this shouldn’t be your main concern. This is your day after all.
Some tips to bridesmaid dress shopping is keep the price down, you can find great dresses for all your girls for less than $100. Keep the fabrics simple and patterns to a minimum. Just above the knee or right below the knee is the ideal length unless you are going for a more formal look and want floor length. Color is your preference, but don’t have the dresses be the same color as your cake and other decor details. They should blend and coordinate but never be the same.
