It takes some time to start and finish the bridesmaid shopping process. There are several factors to consider when choosing your girls gowns. Here are our top 5!
2. Body shape
After the bride to be has found her gown, she will begin her hunt for bridesmaid dresses. Determining the bridesmaids gowns will finalize your wedding day colours and allow so many other planning details to fall into place.
When the bride has chosen "the one" her girls will be wearing, it is important to order the dresses as soon as possible. It can take up to 5 months for a bridesmaid dress to arrive, you don't want to be pressed for time and still want room for any alterations that need to be attended to.
Choosing your colours and styles early on will allow you to finalize the other details for looking put together on the big day. Like finding your shoes or accessories, especially if the bride has specific colours and styles she would like her girls to wear.
Despite getting your measurements done and size charts checked, bridesmaid dresses aren't made to measure. So it's always best to schedule an appointment with a seamstress, alterations should be done around the 3 month mark before the wedding. Schedule your final fitting about 3 to 5 weeks before the wedding day, this gives you enough time just in case you have to make any other small alterations.
The summer is a great time to finalize this detail for your wedding as your maids often have a similar tan to what they will have for your summer wedding. This helps them truly see the colour on their skin tone.
