It's the age old question - do you dress your bridesmaids in something gorgeous, but that they will probably never wear again? Or do you dress them in something that can easily be converted into a cocktail party dress or casual evening wear?
It's pretty safe to say that most bridesmaids would love you (even more than they already do, of course) if you chose a dress they could actually wear again. Even better if it's ten shades away from bubblegum pink and has doesn't have ruffles for days. Okay, maybe the ruffles wouldn't be so bad.
Needless to say, there is a fine line between a bridesmaid dress your bridal party will love and one they will hate.
So now the question is, how do you walk that line?
First, I recommend looking through our collection of custom bridesmaids dresses. You can get a sneak peek at what we have to offer below.
If you see a dress you like, send it to your girls to get their opinion. Then come together to either buy the dress as is or use it as a canvas for designing your own.
Either way, we can help you create a bridesmaid dress that fits the needs of both the bride and bridesmaids. Just take a look at this selection of bridesmaid dresses your ladies will not only love wearing during the wedding, but will look forward to pulling it out of their closets again and again.
Don't fret that this dress (or any of the dresses you see here) is in white. Changing the color is just a request away. The simplicity of this short vintage lace dress is what makes it so charming and easy to wear again - perhaps at a spring brunch!
Here's another short and sweet bridesmaid dress that can be easily altered and worn again. Just remove the floral sash and built-in petticoat and viola! You have a casual spring or summer dress that won't get stuffed in the back of the closet.
Perfect for a winter wedding, this red velvet bridesmaid dress could be worn again to a Christmas party or Valentine's dinner.
We're in the convertible age, which means you can mix and match the bridesmaids' pieces to suit their styles. The tulle skirt above could be paired with an equally as stunning, but more casual top that the bridesmaid could then pair with denim or a different skirt later on.
This cap sleeve chiffon evening dress is a bit more formal, but not so much that it can only be worn to a wedding. Think formal night on a cruise ship or dinner at the beach resort during summer vacation. Plus, it could also be tailored so that only the top portion is worn, and who wouldn't want that? The beaded cap sleeves are so cute!
Now that you've had a peek at some of our beautiful bridesmaids' dresses, share this post with your bridal party and get their feedback on what they love most.
