Most people have either heard of or experienced first hand ‘the bridesmaid dress nightmare’. Forced to wear a style and colour that is far from flattering and comfortable, under the scrutiny of hundreds of people for the better part of a day and evening and to top it all off you’ve payed for it knowing full well that you will never wear it again.

If you don’t want to put your friends through this kind of discomfort and embarrassment then you may have to think outside the square to find the solution that will keep you all happy.

A great place to begin is to start thinking about the selection process in terms of how you chose your own wedding gown:

• Their body types and what style will flatter them best.
• What is the likely temperature going to be on the day?
• Will they be comfortable?
• Affordability?
• Will they want to wear it after the wedding day?
• Try visualising how you will all look as a group?

If your bridesmaids are each quite different in shape, size and height then you could choose the fabric/colour and let them choose the style of dress that they feel suits them best – this is fast becoming a very popular choice for a lot of brides and bridesmaids. A similar solution is to choose the length and colour of the dresses and have your bridesmaids choose the style and choose a shade of the colour, resulting in an interesting blend of varying shades of the same colour.

If you want to make it really simple for yourself and your bridesmaids then you could go with black dresses in the style of their choice.

Whether you decide to choose the style of the dresses or leave it up to your bridesmaids the main thing to keep in mind is that if they are wearing a dress they feel great in then they will look beautiful and be happy on the day and when you look back at the photos - so will you.
