If you’re the bride reading this, you must be aware that your bridesmaid would be walking down the aisle representing your wedding. This means that they would need to represent you well, which leads us to telling you that their dress must be on point. You can have the say on the theme of the wedding, which would be linked to the bridesmaid dresses. Now, this could sound like a lot of work especially if you have a lot of bridesmaids in your list! But don’t worry; we’ll help you out on this one including how you could trim down the spending for this one.
Let’s talk about your budget for this first. If you think you can’t afford paying for all the dresses of your bridesmaids, you have these options.
1. Let your bridesmaids pay for their own dresses. It is okay actually and they would understand if you are running too low on cash. Not everybody is Kim Kardashian (just saying).
2. Find someone who would custom made the dresses for you and ask for a package cost. This is usually more affordable than buying from the mall. And it only makes sense to have custom made since you don’t know everybody’s sizes.
3. Making them wear whatever they feel like wearing as long as the color is still in line with the theme. This also means them having to pay for their own dresses.
You can always design it on your own as well and just have it simple. The more frills there are involved in a dress, the more expensive it would get when you hand it over to the one who will actually make it. There is no need to have a world-known designer do it for you. There is the Internet that would help you out on this one so there’s really no need to worry about the style. You will have lots of inspirations from major designers online! This is your time to let your creative juice flow and if it is your dream to be a fashion designer, then perhaps this is the best time to start it and yes, it is never too late to make your dreams come true. Just because you are getting married, doesn’t mean your dreams are over. But okay, that’s for another topic. Let’s focus on the bridesmaid dresses.
Moving on, you can also get some wedding catalogues where you could find inspiration on the style of bridal and bridesmaid dresses that you would want for your entourage. This is important that you just go for inspiration and put some personal touches on those dresses. You don’t have to exactly copy the design; after all it’s best if your dresses are indeed original. Who knows but after your wedding, you would be recognized for designing your bridesmaid dresses and gather clients on your own for their wedding. This is possible to happen by the way as it has happened to some designers before. Don’t be afraid to venture, explore and dare to be creative.
