Always being a bridesmaid...used to be a wicked little hex on the fate of wearing those awful bridesmaid dresses of the past. Something happened in the bridal industry and now it is a true honor to dress up for your friend's glorious day! The companies that design and manufacture bridesmaid dresses realize how important it is for the bride to show off her favorite color…the color her bridesmaids will wear with smiles and styles.
Shopping with your favorite color in mind is simple when you visit each collection of bridesmaid dresses and there is no doubt that you will find the color you want.
When you have manufacturers from A to W, you will find the style you want your maids to wear. Check out Allure, Bari Jay, Bill Levkoff, DaVinci, Dessy, After Six, Alfred Sung, Lela Rose, Social Bridesmaids, Angelina Faccenda Eden and Forever Yours. When you still need more styles and colors, look to Impression, Liz Fields, Mori Lee and Watters. There are many fashions from each manufacturer and they are each out to make your wedding day a brilliant affair. The style of bridesmaid gown you choose will often be determined by the body type your ladies have. Also important is the fact that some of your ladies will be traveling from another city to take part in your wedding. You have a chore in front of you to coordinate the selection and the color for the bridesmaids to wear. First about the color: today's bride is often involved in a cause for breast cancer (pink), Alzheimer's (purple) or heart disease (red). Choose your color to suit your cause. Does your grandmother love blue and this will be your tribute to her? Is Mom's favorite color yellow? There are times when a bride will wish to choose the color for the bridesmaid dresses by remembering the color she wore on her first date with her groom. What color were you wearing when he proposed marriage to you? Talking about the style of the bridesmaid dresses is not an easy matter. One lady looks great in a strapless gown while the other is heavy busted and uncomfortable in that style. One lady might be very slender and another somewhat overweight. Choosing a bridesmaid dress to please everyone will certainly be a challenge. Problem solved. Today's bride can choose different styles in the same color from the manufacturers who pride themselves on creating color lots that are true. A red satin strapless gown should look the same as a red satin sleeveless style by the same manufacturer. Make the girls happy and add a little variety. Have a splendid wedding and remember the bridesmaids love you and want to look great on your special day. Take lots of photos and catch those smiling faces!
