Choosing bridesmaids dresses is probably one of the most difficult dress shopping experiences. The reason for this is that there will probably be more than one girl and therefore various body shapes and skin colours to take into account.
At Amanda Ferri, we have 3 collections on offer for bridesmaids. Firstly is the Gelique Collection. This extensive collection consists of the ever popular convertible dresses and 10 other styles to suit every body shape and personality. With 50 colours and laces to choose from, this collection is beautiful and affordable for your chosen bridesmaids. Our second bridesmaid collection is our Imported Collection. These elegant chiffon and beaded dresses are imported by Amanda and are the perfect look for a formal wedding. Lastly, is our Made for You Collection. This range is suited for those ladies who are wanting something very unique. These dresses are custom made by our in-house team who strive to make each bridesmaid look and feel picture perfect for their bride’s wedding day.
To help you in deciding how to style your bridesmaids, here are our top tips for choosing bridesmaid dresses, colours and trends.
Ideally, the bridesmaid dresses mustn’t necessarily match but instead be roughly the same shade or colour palete as the wedding theme.. Our top wedding colours for 2015 are:
Pantone Marsala – colour of the year 2015
The first decision that is usually made with regard to bridesmaid dresses is length. Choose between a long or short dress based on the vision you have for your wedding. If you are going for a more elegant and formal wedding, your best option would be a long dress.
Its important to remember that each bridesmaid has her own style and colour perferences when it comes to dress shopping. When choosing dresses for bridesmaids, keep this factor in mind. These are our options to help your bridesmaids stand out, while still fitting into your wedding theme and colours.
The Convertible Dress
These dresses are the perfect option if you want your bridesmaids to be unique. They can also cater for different body shapes, which means that every woman will feel comfortable and confident. The convertible dress is also a good option as your bridesmaids will use them again. Visit our showroom today for our range of Gelique bridesmaid dresses.
Different shades, same style
This is a great option especially when all your bridesmaids have roughly the same body shape and/or different skin colours. Don’t be afraid to have fun with different tones.
