Bridesmaid Dresses

When you are a bride, it is important to make sure that your bridesmaids don't steal the show. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't choose the most beautiful bridesmaid dresses you can find. You can still be the star without having your bridesmaids hate you for the hideous dresses they have to wear. Having your bridesmaids look their best shows that you have good taste in dresses, and that you are confident enough that you don't need to make your bridesmaids look bad to make yourself look good.

As the bride, you get to decide on everything at the wedding. Your taste cannot be questioned. That means that every aspect of the celebration reflects on you, including the bridesmaids. So obviously, you want everything to be perfect, and that includes the bridesmaid dresses.

The best thing to do is to ask your bridal party what they want. They know what styles of formal dresses work for them and what colors look good on them. Usually, if these women are your closest friends and family, you can trust their sense of style. However, you are the bride, and you have the final say. If your maid of honor's sense of style doesn't jive with your own, you can tell her what to wear.

If your bridesmaids have very different complexion and body types, it can be a challenge finding a formal dress that looks good on all of them. Some women look stunning in a tight red dress, and some just look blotchy. Some have the shoulders to go strapless, and some just don't. If it is too much of a problem for you, you don't have to stick to a uniform look. More and more brides these days are throwing uniformity out the window and letting each bridesmaid choose her own dress. Of course, as the bride, you can still have veto power. This works best if you are having a more casual wedding, on the beach or in your backyard. Having the bridesmaids all in their own different dresses will give your wedding a more carefree feel.

When choosing your bridesmaid dresses, it is important to remember that, in your gown, you will easily be the most stunning beauty of all. Let your bridesmaids shine too by finding them the perfect dresses at Macy's.
