Your wedding gown is very important for you – but the way your wedding attendants look is surely equally important too. After all, these are your favorite girls in the whole wide world – and you want them to feel just as fantastic as you do on your wedding day.
How to choose the perfect dresses for them – and how to make sure they are happy with your choice? How to do this in an easy, smooth way? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

• Mixing and matching bridesmaids’ dresses is one of the hottest trends right now – and not without reason. Although mismatched bridesmaids’ dresses have been around for quite some time, this trend has grown to encompass a wide range of options both for the bride and for her attendants as well.

• Why would you settle on this particular trend? It makes things easier both for you and for your bridesmaids too. Allowing the ladies to choose their favorite fabrics, shades of a particular color, designs, lengths and necklines will help them pick dresses that really suit their bodies and natural features. Consequently, it will give them more self-confidence, they will be happier on the wedding day – and they will be better bridesmaids too.

• Regardless of whether or not you settle on the “mixing and matching” option, keep in mind that being budget-friendly will be more than appreciated by your bridesmaids. They are already spending quite a lot of money on the pre-wedding events and the wedding – and helping them save some bucks is surely a good idea.

Your bridesmaids are your best friends and your closest relatives, the special ladies who will walk before you down the aisle, the amazing superheroes who will help you plan the Big Day and the genuinely concerned women who will lend you a hand on the day of the wedding as well.

Naturally, you want your bridesmaids to reflect you and your style – but you also want them to feel perfect on your Big Day. How do you choose dresses for your bridesmaids that everyone will love? Here are some useful tips:

• Keep it simple and elegant. This is the absolute key to finding bridesmaids’ dresses that are truly appreciated by them, and by the other guests as well. Simple cuts, pretty fabrics, nice colors that go with your color scheme – these three ingredients should be kept in mind at all time.

• Keep it budget-friendly. Truth be told, your special ladies have already spent a lot on the Big Day (not only for traveling and accommodation, but also for the pre-wedding events too). Keep their dresses budget-friendly and they will love you for being a considerate bride!

• Delegate the tasks. Afraid you have too much on your hands, and not enough time to select pretty dresses for your bridesmaids? Delegate the task to your Maid of Honor. Simply offer her some brief guidelines and she will do a wonderful job of searching for the right dresses!

• Mismatching in style. Mismatched bridesmaids’ dresses are very popular nowadays, and they can really make it so much easier for everyone involved! If you offer your bridesmaids some color swatches and some guidelines (e.g. the neckline, the general cut of the dress, and so on), they will choose dresses that actually suit them and your wedding style too.

Your mother is one of the most important people in your life. Not only has she raised you, but she has also taught you to believe in the power of love and commitment. And here you are, approaching your wedding date, grateful for all the amazing things your mom has done for you!

Naturally, you want her to feel truly beautiful at the wedding – but what are some of the things she should keep in mind when choosing her dress for the Big Day? We have some tips for you and your mom – so read on and find out more.

• She should take cues from your style and from your groom’s style. Depending on how formal or informal your wedding will be, you and your loved one will set the tone of the wedding style – and your mom (as well as his mom) should first and foremost take cues from you.

• She should also look into the bridesmaids’ attires. Of course, she shouldn’t dress the same as the bridal party (and no, she shouldn’t even wear the same color either). However, she should somewhat coordinate her dress with the bridesmaids’ looks. For example, if the brides will wear blue, your mom should find a different shade of blue that complements her skin tone and looks great with the bridesmaids’ dresses too.

• She should also take the “technicalities” into account. We highly advise your mom to start searching for her dress as soon as possible (preferably, at least 3 months before the wedding, so that she has enough time to find, order and alter her dress). Also, your mom should also keep in mind that, traditionally, she should communicate with the mother-of-the-groom about their dresses, so that they coordinate at least in terms of style and formality, if not in terms of complementary colors.

Your wedding look is extremely important to you as a bride-to-be. Beyond that though, you also want to make sure your bridesmaids look splendid as well. After all, they are your best friends and the attendants you have chosen to stand by your side on the Big Day – so it’s only natural that you want them to feel just as amazing as you do.

Planning a Fall wedding and want your bridesmaids too look great? Here are some tips you should keep in mind when choosing their dresses:

• The style. Choose bridesmaids’ dresses designs that are easy to wear and, most importantly, will look good on all body types. In general, A-line cuts are suitable for a variety of body types – and there are plenty of A-line designs to choose from, so you will not feel limited.

• The colors. These days, most brides choose to have mismatched bridesmaids’ dresses – but this is entirely up to you. In the end, you can dress your bridesmaids in the same color, in different shades of the same color, in colors that look great with each other or in colors that are completely different. In case you settle for completely mismatched dresses, make sure to connect your bridesmaids’ looks with other elements (such as the bouquets, the dress’ cut, glitter on all the dresses, and so on).

• The comfort. Remember, your bridesmaids should not only look beautiful, but they should feel comfortable too! Choose dresses made from fabrics suitable for Fall weather (or allow your bridesmaids to wear shawls or jackets on top of their dresses), to make sure they feel weather-comfy.

• The price. Your bridesmaids spend a lot for the Big Day – so try to choose dresses that are pocket-friendly too. Your special ladies will surely appreciate this!

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!

As the very special ladies they are, your bridesmaids deserve the very best – and you definitely want them to feel really pretty at your wedding (especially considering this is one of their most important duty!).
How do you choose bridesmaids’ dresses that truly satisfy everyone, though? How do you make sure your friends feel gorgeous walking down the aisle and standing there beside you as you spell out the big “I Do”?

We have gathered some tips to help you choose gorgeous bridesmaids’ dresses – so read on and find out more.

• Your wedding. Before you start emailing your bridesmaids about the dress options you have found, take a moment and think of your wedding style and of its level of formality. This will help you narrow down the long list of options under your nose and settle on dresses that suit your wedding and its “code”.
• The freedom. Since we are not all created to look the same, it would be a really great idea if you allowed your bridesmaids to have a bit of freedom in the dress they wear for the big day. Different lengths, different shades of the same color, different necklines – these details can make a world of difference when it comes to making your ladies feel comfortable and self-confident.
• The colors. Sure, we know you want to match your bridesmaids’ dresses with your wedding colors – but do remember that certain colors are not meant to look good on everyone. Taupe, for example, is a very popular color for bridesmaids’ dresses – but it might not look great on women with a lighter complexion.

When your child gets married, you want the very best for him/her. And regardless of whether you are the mother of the bride or the mother of the groom, you definitely want to look really great on this very special day in your life.

How do you do it, though? How do you dress properly for your child’s wedding? We have gathered some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

• Long dress. Depending on how formal the wedding is going to be, a long dress may be more than adequate. Usually suitable for very elegant affairs, long dresses are a great option for the mothers of the bride and groom. We suggest you settle on something of a simpler elegance, in one or two colors at most.
• Jacket and skirt. Generally suitable for informal weddings, jacket and skirt combinations are also a great option for the mothers of the bride and groom. For a day wedding, choose something in a lighter color – but do make sure not to settle on the same color as the bride. For an evening wedding, a darker color will be more appropriate – and you can definitely add some opulent accessories to make your look pop with elegance and grace (e.g. a jeweled belt).
• Short dress. Yes, short dresses are more than suitable for the mothers of the bride and groom. Something that ends right above the knees or a teacup-length dress can look extremely stylish and it can complement a more informal wedding or a cocktail party.

As a bride-to-be, you want all the details of the Big Day to be in their own place by the time you are finally one the point of saying “I Do”. Aside from your own wedding outfits and the décor, you will also want to think of how your bridal party should dress.

And one of the questions that may be running through your mine is “Does my bridal party have to match?”. If that’s what you are thinking, read on and find out more because we have gathered some of the best tips to know about this.

• No, your bridal party doesn’t have to match. It may be easier to make everyone look great in the pictures by matching their looks, but that’s not absolutely necessary. As a matter of fact, it is considered very stylish to mismatch the bridal party.
• If you settle for the latter version, remember to have at least one element that connects the different outfits your bridesmaids may choose. For instance, your connection may be the color, the fabric or even a wider range of colors and/or the neckline of their dresses.
• Your bridal party’s accessories don’t have to match either – not even if you do want their dresses to be the same. It is perfectly fine to recommend them certain types of jewelry and accessories (such as a particular type of metal, for example), but it is not absolutely mandatory.

However, considering the fact that they are an important part of your wedding and of your life, you will want your bridesmaids to feel excellently dressed as well. And to do this, you have to make sure you choose the perfect bridesmaids dresses for them.

If you plan on having your wedding during the Fall, here are some suggestions you may want to keep in mind when choosing your bridesmaids’ dresses.

• Color. This Fall is very generous when it comes to colors, so you will find plenty of options to satisfy you. From Dried Herb to Marsala, Biscay Bay and Dessert Sage, the most beloved colors of this season cover a wide range of tastes and styles (nude, vibrant, bright, and so on). Choose your bridesmaids’ dresses from these colors and match them to your wedding color palette to make everything look absolutely stunning.
• Size. You want your bridesmaids to look great and to be comfortable as well, so you might want to suggest dress sizes that start at the level of the knee (you don’t need to have all your bridesmaids match with each other, so some may choose a teacup length dress, while others may want to go for the longest versions).
• Fabric. To ensure your bridesmaids don’t feel the chilly temperatures outside, make sure you choose beautiful and weather-adequate fabrics for their dresses. Go for thicker fabrics that still look elegant and pretty, so that your bridesmaids are “covered” and protected from the cold. Also, don’t forget to pick some cold weather accessories for your bridesmaids too (capes, scarves, thick hosiery, and so on).
