What’s more? I have also added some amazing Indian bridesmaid dresses for you to pin and share with your girls and finalise on something that all of you like! Scroll on, tell me which bridesmaids dress you loved the most!
Tips to choose the perfect bridesmaids dresses:
1. Consider your bridesmaids’ style while choosing the dress. You might be best of friends and have styles that are poles apart. If you are not fussy about matching outfits, then give your bridesmaids the freedom to choose what they want, while keeping one element common. You can choose a common colour palette, similar print/embroidery or a similar style of bridesmaids outfit, for eg: a Kanjivaram saree!
Don’t these bridesmaids dresses look in sync despite wearing different colours? You know why? They have stuck to the pastel palette and added a floral tiara to show that they belong to the bride tribe!
Or perhaps, these beauties who chose a lehenga and a saree but still look more synced than ever.
2. Choose bridesmaids dresses that complement your bridal outfit. Maybe pick a colour from your outfit and use it as the colour inspiration for your bridesmaids’ outfits!
Notice how the bridesmaids have picked pink from the bride’s skirt and used it in their blouses? That’s the kind of complementing I’m talking about!
3. Consider your bridesmaids’ budgets. Just because you like a bridesmaid dress that is for 10,000, doesn’t mean all of them can afford it. Prior to finalising an outfit, decide amongst yourselves how much is a decent budget to buy the Indian bridesmaids dresses.
4. Pick a bridesmaid dress that can be reused again for some other occasion. Refer point 1 again. If you pick a sharara because you like it, but the bridesmaids don’t, then they might wear it to your wedding to make you happy. But will they reuse it? Nope! That’s why it is better to pick something that everyone can wear more than once!
