Although we’re just heading into Winter (in the Northern Hemisphere), now is actually an ideal time to think about bridesmaid dresses if you’re planning a Spring or early Summer wedding. Giving yourself the time to make considered choices will avoid unnecessary stress later. The time passes so quickly when planning a wedding, especially when there is so much else to think about. Now is actually the ideal time for choosing bridesmaid dresses for a spring wedding.
One of the first things to settle on is the colour scheme. You want a shade that’s flattering to all skin tones and will not look dated in a few years’ time. Sage green is a beautiful, soft shade that will stand the test of time. It’s also a very calming colour – just what you need on the big day. This delicate hue is elegant and classic. Plus, it will compliment the bride’s outfit rather than upstage it.
If you’re having a large group of bridesmaids, finding a style of dress that everyone likes can be difficult. In this case it helps if you have the choice of different styles in exactly the same shade. AW Bridal offer an extensive range of dresses, colours and sizes. Plus, custom sizing is free. Traditional styles like the crossover neckline and butterfly sleeves above, and the sweetheart neckline and puff sleeves below are always a safe choice.
If your bridesmaids prefer to cover up a bit more you could consider long sleeves. I know from experience that not everyone is happy with showing their arms in a sleeveless dress, and adding a cover up can spoil the overall look. The elasticated cuffs and shoulders on the Florencia dress below create a very flattering shape combined with the sweetheart neckline.
For a style that offers more coverage still, the two dresses below ooze elegance and style. The classic silhouette of the straight sleeves and floor length gentle A-line skirt is a style of dress that can be worn again and again. It makes no sense to buy a dress that you only wear once, so it’s important to bear that in mind when choosing bridesmaid dresses. The higher V-neck of the April dress below is perfect for anyone not comfortable with showing cleavage.
The Ginevra dress features a simple jewel neckline that can be left as it is or embellished with a simple necklace. The beauty about these dresses is that they can be customised (at no extra cost) and are available in more than 20 shades. They are very affordable too at around $100 (approximately £81 at the current exchange rate). You can order colour swatches for free, plus there is a home try-on service with free shipping.
