Choosing your bridesmaid dresses can be almost as difficult as choosing your wedding dress. Actually, I would say it is more difficult. I wouldn’t describe choosing a wedding dress as difficult. That’s not the right word. It’s a huge mix of emotions, but not necessarily difficult.
Finding a dress that fits 4 girls, all different shapes or sizes, all different heights. Now that’s difficult.
I was lucky. I found my bridesmaid dresses pretty quickly. And its a style that will fit most shapes and flatter most heights. Phew.
If you’re turning into a bit of a bridezilla (don’t worry we all do), and have a style in mind and there’s no budging from it, have a think about small details you can compromise on, that can not only works for all of your bridesmaids, but makes them feel comfortable, which is extremely important.
I have decided to start a series of posts with some of my fave dresses on the market that would be perfect for your big day.
Today’s post is all about maxi dresses from ASOS. Here are my top 6 maxi’s in neutral colours, perfect for a spring/summer wedding.
Maxi dresses are a popular choice for a bridesmaid dress. They are glamorous, striking and will stand out enough without taking attention away from the bride. The options above, in my opinion, are perfect choices for a spring/summer wedding. In fact, one of my closest friends got married this weekend, and the first dress I have given you is the dress her bridesmaids wore, and they all looked stunning.
What I love about maxi dresses, is the comfort of wearing one all day. Personally, I hate my legs, and would hate to have them on show in front of hundreds of guests. Maxi’s (as long as they aren’t too fitted) are easy to walk in, comfortable, and will most likely hide any lumps and bump that want to be hidden.
Perhaps consider a short sleeve if you aren’t planning on giving the bridesmaids a cover up (not everyone loves their arms!)
If cream is too pale, why not try a soft pink, or a print to add a bit of colour?
Even though your wedding is your wedding, turning into a total bridezilla isn’t pretty. My advice would be to ask your bridesmaids what they don’t want to wear, anything they struggle with on their figures, or colours that totally don’t suite their skin tone. Make life easier for all of you. Don’t put them in something they feel uncomfortable in – the last thing you want is a fidgety bridesmaid in the wedding photos that cost you over £1000 to get, trying to stand in a position that hides their lumps and bumps (which I’m sure they don’t have, but we all have our problem areas!)
I hope you have found this post useful. Look out for the next post in this series looking at more dresses I think would be perfect for bridesmaids.
