Finally Time For Bridesmaids To Choose Their Own Dresses
We've all the seen the disturbing photos. Like evidence from some sort of fashion crime scene, they are images of women wearing frozen grimaces, and uncomfortable bouffant dresses in cotton candy pink, some even with matching lace umbrellas.
For years, bridesmaids just had to grin and wear it, no matter what gown the bride chose for her bridesmaids to wear. That finally may be starting to change.
Brides are starting to realize that they don't need girls all in the exact same dress in order for it to feel like they have a cohesive, beautiful look.
In fact, more and more of ours clients are moving away from the traditional, matching bridesmaid dresses and instead are choosing dresses that coordinate in color and fabric while allowing the bridesmaids to pick their own style.
People can wear what's flattering to their bodies, And it still allows the bride to be really happy with the overall look because even though it's not the same dress, the end result is still the same.
As this latest trend in bridal fashion gains traction, many of the designers they work with are responding by creating collections that coordinate in overall appearance, but offer different cuts to help flatter a wider variety of figures.
Very rarely does a bridal party of girls come in the same shape and size. You can have two girls that are the same height and weight, but carry it differently.
Bust lines, in particular, are often an issue and subsequently many dresses are now being made with different bodice options including single or double straps, strapless, cap sleeves, or halter-style tops, better allowing bridesmaids to feel more comfortable with the level of coverage they have.
The nice thing about custom is that one bridesmaid wants strapless. Another girl with a little more of a bosom wants to order it with straps. We can do whatever it takes to be comfortable,Then you can get into the dress, go to the wedding and enjoy it instead of worrying about your appearance.
For many bridesmaids, it's a considerable improvement from the norm of spending hundreds of dollars on an uncomfortable dress that doesn't fit right, looks awkward in pictures and is usually worn only once before spending the rest of its life in the back of a closet.
Years ago the trend was more that the bride made the decisions and you just had to go with it, but now everyone's voice counts and that makes it more interesting.
And it's not just the cuts that are changing, but adherence to a single color is changing, too. Faber said that a lot of brides are now opting for bridesmaids' dresses in complementary colors that coordinate, but aren't identical, allowing bridesmaids to wear something that represents their style, while still giving the bridal party a unified appearance.
Everyone's personality is different, as well as their body, And this way when they have them designed it not only fits their body and personality, it still keeps the bride happy by giving her the color and fabric she chose for the wedding.
Typically brides come to Rosa Novias AU six months to a year in advance to begin planning their dresses, which are usually ready to go about a month before the event. And on average most of her floor-length gowns cost around $260.
