Your bridesmaids are extremely important to you as a bride-to-be. They are not only your best friends, but the ladies you have chosen to accompany you as you walk down the aisle and be there for you throughout the entire wedding planning process and on the Big Day as well.

Obviously, you want to choose the most gorgeous dresses for your bridesmaids. But how to dress your out-of-town bridesmaids? How to make sure you pick the perfect gowns for them? We have some tips for you – so read on to find out more.

• Search for the right design. There are literally hundreds of types of bridesmaids’ dresses – so start your search by narrowing them down by length, style and color. Find a design (or a series of designs) that would suit your best friends for the special day and share your ideas with the bridesmaids.
• Get the right measurements. To be absolutely certain your bridesmaids’ dresses will suit them, ask them to take their measurements. Keep in mind, though: it is for the best to have this done by a professional seamstress, as she will make no mistakes. Also, do remind your bridesmaids that their dresses will most likely be at least one size larger than the normal dresses. Furthermore, they should be completely honest about their measurements, as it is easier to alter them to be smaller, rather than make them larger.
• Order them in time. Remember that it will take some time for the dresses to arrive and to be altered, so it is highly recommendable that you order them approximately 6 months before the Big Day. If you think you don’t have the time to handle the ordering and the collection of the money, talk to your Maid of Honor – she would be more than happy to help out!

As the mothers of the bride and groom, you must be really proud to have raised such wonderful children! Here they are, approaching their wedding day, happy to step into a new life as married adults – and being truly grateful for all that you’ve offered them throughout the years!

Of course, this is a huge moment for your children – but it is also a very important day for you too and you surely want to make sure you look at your very best. Does that mean you have to match your dresses, as the bride and groom’s mothers? We have gathered some tips for you – so read on to find out more.

• In short, no, your dresses do not have to match with each other – or at least not in color. However, this largely depends on what the bride wants and what you discuss with each other (sometimes, brides may want the mothers to wear attires that slightly match the wedding colors and/or the bridesmaids, for example).

• At the same time, do keep in mind that your dresses should match in terms of style and formality. This is precisely why it is important to talk to each other and see what you plan on wearing –not because you absolutely have to coordinate with each other in every aspect, but because you want to make sure neither of you feels underdressed as compared to the other.

• The mothers of the bride and groom have plenty of freedom when it comes to what they choose to wear on the Big Day. As long as the attires are on the same level in terms of style and formality (and as long as this coordinates with the wedding’s style and formality too), you can wear whatever makes you feel gorgeous!

Having a destination wedding is a truly fantastic choice if you want your big day to be absolutely memorable, from all points of view. The uniqueness, the adventure, the gorgeous surroundings – they can all make your wedding truly special (both for you and for your guests too).

If you have already found the perfect destination for your wedding, it is time to think of a dress that’s adequate for this type of event too. How to do that? What are some of the most important tips to keep in mind when choosing a destination wedding gown? Read on to find out more.

• As a destination wedding bride, you want to feel gorgeous as you walk down the aisle. But you also want to make sure you are fully comfortable too. Choose a dress that’s made from a lightweight and airy fabric – such as organza, rayon crepe, chiffon, re-embroidered lace embroidered tulle, or cotton. These fabrics tend to be great for travelling and they will also allow your skin to breathe in the warm weather of your wedding destination.

• Furthermore, keep in mind that you should also stay away from fabrics that get easily wrinkled (especially since you are most likely going to have to travel with your dress). Such fabrics include satin and charmeuse – which, aside from getting wrinkled very easily, can also show sweat a lot easier than other fabrics.

• Your dress should also suit your destination. Of course, you want a wedding gown that fully embraces your personality and style – but it is important that you match it to your location too. For example, a tight lace dress, a spaghetti strap dress or a sheath gown can all complement the casual and carefree vibes of a destination wedding.

• Last, but definitely not least, remember that your dress should also match your destination’s conditions. For instance, if you plan on having a beach wedding, your dress should be short enough as to allow you not to drag your dress through the sand (so it should either be short or just above the ankles).
