Your wedding day should be one of the most memorable
days of your life. Its definitely not a secret that when it comes time to get
the wedding party dressed, the bride-to-be groans at the thought of all the
difficulties. Figuring out how to fit everyone in your bridal party can be a
bit tricky considering that everyone has different sizes and shapes, but dont
despair! Below are a few helpful tips to make sure everybody looks their best
so youll be free to worry about the other twenty things youre sure to have on
If your bridesmaid has a fuller lower body than her
upper body, you should try and balance her figure by minimizing the bottom half
and emphasizing the top. For instance: choose a design that details the upper
half like bodices, embroidery, off-the-shoulder sleeves and beads just to name
a few. You want the look of a minimal skirt so as not to bring attention to the
fuller bottom half of her body. Try a skirt with soft pleats or heavier fabrics
that wont cling to her hips.
If your bridesmaid has a full figure,
dont make the mistake of having her try to overexpose her assets and certainly
dont cover them up entirely. Necklines like scoop, square or V, show off this
figure the best. Choose floating material that can easily camouflage any extra
pounds. Make sure that she avoids clingy fabrics and overly ornate designs that
will add thickness and bulk.
If one of your bridesmaids is on the thin
side, fill out her figure with full skirts or gathers to create the illusion of
curves. Textured fabrics that are beaded or embroidered are a great way to go.
Remember, not all of your bridesmaids need to match. Some brides have maids
match in pairs, with each pair wearing a different pastel or seasonal color.
Others even make each dress unique.
It doesnt have to be an ordeal to
find something perfect for everyone in your party. With these tips, at least it
makes it a little bit easier.
