Bridesmaid dresses can be headache-inducing things, both for the bride and for her attendings. With varying tastes, colourings and bodyshapes to cater for, finding the one frock for every member of the bridal party can be a tricky task, to say the least! We're here to ease the load with some elegant options from some leading local labels that are sure to be worn more than once. Read on for our top tips for finding the perfect bridesmaid dress:
- Break out of the one-dress-box by opting for similar but not identical dresses. Keep it cohesive by sticking to like-minded styles (draped, nipped-waist, tailored etc) and in singular colour scheme (pastels, neutrals, greys, brights etc).
- Local labels can be better for larger bridal parties, as everyone can try on before purchasing.
- Some designers have customised bridesmaid collections. See Fleur Wood's femme line, Manning Cartell's sophisticated options or talk to the girls in-store at Zimmermann about their bespoke bridesmaid service.
