Myth v Reality
He’s popped the question and so have you! You asked your closest friends to be your bridesmaids. Now there’s only one issue: how do you choose a dress that suits everyone? The simple answer is…you don’t! This goes hand-in-hand with the myth that you’ll get a dress for your friends that can be worn again after the wedding. Once you debunk both of these, you can really have a meaningful conversation with your girls.
If you opt for the same dress for all, there may be complaints about the length, fabric, shape, cut, colour and bust line. Some friends will grin and bear it as it’s your Big Day, whilst others may want to go for a more collaborative approach where the dress is chosen by the group. This can cause unnecessary tension.
Our top solution is to choose a multiwear dress which gives each bridesmaid to personalise the bodice to a style that suits their bust and build. The colour, fabric, length, shape and cut won’t change but your friends get the chance to hide some of the bits they’re not so fond of!
