You have finally found the wedding dress of your dreams now it's time to find the perfect bridesmaids dress that compliments your dress. When choosing your bridesmaids dresses think of the look and feel of your dress and how the two will look together. Consider similar fabric and or features such as illusion or strapless neckline, high low length or a fit and flare silhouette.
If you have chosen a romantic lace bridal dress consider a lace bridesmaid dress, a dress accented with lace or a dress with similar feeling of softness & romance. The Dessy Collection Bridesmaid Dress 2940 pairs beautifully with the After Six Bridal style 1050. Both are all over lace sleeveless dresses with an open back. A bridesmaid dress with a touch of lace would also work well, such as the Dessy Bridesmaid Dress 2924, a romantic dress with a soft nu-georgette skirt with lace bodice.
Reflecting the silhouette and hemline of your dress is another way of pairing your wedding dress with your bridal party's dress. If your wedding dress has a full ball gown don't choose a sheath or mermaid style bridesmaid dress. Try a style with an A-line silhouette or modified full skirt. The After Six Bridal Dress Style 1053 has a high low hem that lends itself to a slightly less formal wedding. A perfect bridesmaid dress would be the Alfred Sung Style D697 bridesmaid dress with a modified high low cocktail length skirt.
Look and Feel
If your bridal dress has a modern contemporary feel be sure that same feeling is reflected in your bridesmaid dresses. Going all out Glam with your bridal dress? Then Glam bridesmaid dresses are for you. The After Six Wedding Dress 1047 is all out glamour with its sweetheart neckline, draped bodice and fit and flare skirt. A bridesmaid dress with a fit and flare skirt would be a nice option to complement your dress. The Dessy Collection Bridesmaid Dress 2931 with its glamorous draped bodice and sweetheart neckline is also a perfect pick.
With all of the time and patience you put into finding Mr. Right, you can use the same mindset in selecting your wedding day look not only for yourself but for your bridesmaids as well. After all your wedding day is the biggest day of your life!
