Once you have your own dress in the bag what to do about your beautiful bridesmaids? Here are some tips and inspiration for getting the perfect gowns to compliment your own.
Colour - the best starting point when choosing a bridesmaids dress. You probably already have a colour theme in mind for your wedding and bridesmaid dresses are a great way to introduce it. In our cherry blossom wedding this month we're obviously going to go with pink, but what shade? Once you have decided on your colour its time to look at all the different shades available. It's quite common to have lighter shades for earlier in the day and darker shades for an evening weddings. Obviously all this will come down to what you can find in the right size and style! Its a great idea to always carry a swatch of the shade you are after in your purse - just in case you spot the right dress or those all important matching shoes. Just grab some paint swatch charts from your local hardware store!
