When it comes to your wedding, nothing is more important that the bridal gown. This is your special day. It is the day you begin your new life with the person that you love. You want to wear the perfect gown, carry the perfect flowers, and have the perfect wedding. However, selection of the dresses for your bridesmaids takes a close second to your plan.
Your bridesmaids will be the frame to your perfect wedding picture. They will walk ahead of you to announce your pending arrival. They will stand beside you during your wedding photographs. These photographs will be part of your precious memory forever. While it may take weeks or months to find the perfect dress for your wedding, selecting the dresses for your bridal party does not have to.
The bridesmaid dresses
You must make a few key decisions before you begin this process. These decisions include:
- Will all the bridesmaid’s dresses be alike or will they be allowed to select their favorite style?
- Will the dresses be the exact same color, or will you select a basic color and ask them to stay in that range?
- Do the dresses have to match in length?
- Do you want them to wear sleeves or no sleeves?
- Will they need to wear matching shoes?
If you decide on one dress that every bridesmaid must wear, then you can fire up the computer and go to a site like www.azazie.com/all/bridesmaid-dresses and make a selection. If you opt to let them have more freedom in their selection, you provide them with a set of requirements regarding the dress and let them shop for themselves. Of course, you will have the final say on the dress.
Azazie is an industry leader. They have an awesome program. Your bridesmaid can put down a very small deposit, and have the dress of their choice shipped to them. They can try it on at home, and you will get an idea of how the dress will look on her. If the dress is not right, she simply returns it. If it is perfect arrange to go for a fitting and alteration.
Tip: all dresses should be bought a minimum of 4-months before the wedding. This is because they will need time for alterations.

If you are looking for a look that is alike, but also different, consider separates. A formal dress skirt paired with a pretty top gives you plenty of options. The skirts can be the same color or different hues of the same color. The material of the tops can be the same, but with a different cut.
This option is a good one if you are having a barn, outdoor, or vineyard wedding. When the after party starts, the bridesmaids can slip off the skirt and put on some jeans or shorts and party the night away.
Start early and shop for your bridesmaids dress online. Save the footwork for yourself. You will be able to see a lot more of the options that you would going into the store. You will be able to shop for bargains. Your wedding preparation is stressful enough. There is no reason why this has to be. So, start looking today and take advantage of the “sending it to your home”: option.
