Long Dress for your Bridesmaids – Make Them as Dazzling as You Are!
A bridesmaid’s long dress is just as important as the bridal gown itself. It has to be carefully chosen as it is among the most important pieces of the wedding puzzle. No matter how beautiful the bridal gown is, if the bridesmaids’ dresses look awful, the wedding would
be a total fiasco. Check out the following guidelines so as to make sure your maids will end up looking as stunning as you (the bride herself), completely avoiding disaster and ruining your spotlight.
Color is among the most essential factors to take note of when scouting for the ideal long dress for your bridesmaids. In order to complement the dresses, you should consider their overall skin tone. Women with fair complexion tend to look good in pastels and soft colors such as coral white, light raspberry, champagne and soft tangerine. On the other hand, those who have darker skin tone would look gorgeous in lively but not too flashy colors, such as emerald green, ruby red, electric orange and midnight blue.
You may also choose dresses that have a two tone color effect. Generally, a dress with two colors or two shades of the same color looks better on many skin complexions. After all, what’s important in selecting the right color for the dress is to make sure that everyone would look good when wearing them.
To pick the right dress for your bridesmaids, try to picture out each woman in the long dress and see if they would look good. Their body type or physical structure should be one of the things you have to consider when choosing a dress style. If your maids are mostly petite women, you can go for an asymmetrical hemline and show a little leg to achieve the illusion of morel length. Do not go for full skirts or floor length gowns as they may overwhelm the frame of these women.
For pear shaped, a dress with a full or A-line skirt and fitted top would be advisable. You should always highlight the women’s good physique without being too racy. On the other hand, if most of your bridesmaids have slim figures, you can achieve a curve effect by drawing
attention to the waist line and bust line. You can also try those that accentuate the waist such as wrap dresses.
For plus size women, you can balance out narrow shoulders with a shrug or wrap and choose a dress with horizontal, broadening necklines. You can choose a long dress with a hem that is higher at the front than at the back.
Long Dress Simplicity
Simple is better and less is more. Most of the most dreadful bridesmaid dresses are those that have extreme designs that border on being bizarre. This odd styling includes extra bows, ribbon, beading and sleeves. If you are trying to achieve a unique and original look, try going for the classic look. Your wedding should have that timeless, elegant aura that everyone can appreciate. A simple full length gown with simple straps would look good on almost everyone.
When it comes to choosing your maid’s dresses, the decision is ultimately yours. What you like should be your topmost priority because it is your wedding. However, if you can pick something that you love that will complement your bridesmaids’ beauty, your wedding will be all the more gorgeous. Choose the perfect long dress that will wow everyone, including you and your groom.
