How to Choose a Bridesmaid Dress for Spring

So, just what should you keep in mind when selecting your bridesmaid dress? Of course, it’s important that the dresses match the theme of your wedding. But, there are a lot of other things that you should keep in mind as well.

Wedding Location

Where will your wedding be held? Your dress will be far different for a beach wedding than a large church wedding. An outdoor wedding in a field will require a different type of dress than a formal evening wedding.

Wedding Colors

Of course, this is one of the most important things to think about. What are your wedding colors? You will want your bridesmaid dresses to be in the same accent colors as your wedding flowers, decorations, and accents.

Style Preferences

Again, this will tie in with your wedding theme. Are you having a casual afternoon wedding with a bohemian feel? Or, are you having an elegant evening church wedding. You will want to choose a bridesmaid dress that is appropriate for the type of wedding.

Long or Short

Are you picturing a long evening gown, floor length gypsy skirt, or a short, sexy bridesmaid dress? Of course, you should keep in mind the body types of your bridesmaids. Not everyone will feel comfortable in every style of dress. Make compromises when possible.

Price Point

No one likes to think about money when planning their wedding, but you will need to consider what you can afford for each bridesmaid dress. Are you planning on something affordable in the $100 range? Or, do you have a budget that will let you spend more?

  1. My future daughter-in-law has this checked off of her list for the wedding coming up in June.

  2. Julie Waldron says:

    My oldest daughter got married last May. The wedding was outdoors & not real formal. She had four bridemaids, they all wore the same color dress(navy blue) & length(knee) but they were different styles which they chose themselves, one of them even made her own dress. I love that because one of them may not like the style the bride chose or it may not fit right on another. All the girls wore silver flats except our youngest daughter(she was the MOH) she wore red cowboy boots. LOL Because she ALWAYS wears cowboy boots. They looked cute 🙂
