Getting to grips with your styling for your bridesmaids can be tricky.
There are a number of things to consider when it comes to bridesmaid dresses: Will your chosen colour suit everyone? Will each bridesmaid wear the same shape? Would you consider mixing and matching when it comes to shape, print and plain, and materials? Midi or Maxi?
If you have a large bridal party, it can be hard to find something that will suit everyone. But, the best you can aim for is that everyone will feel comfortable and relatively confident on the day. (There’s nothing worse than feeling uncomfortable for the whole day, and then knowing the are also pictures being taken!)
