Heather Bridesmaid Dress Styles
Being asked to be a bridesmaid can be a happy occasion as well as a stressful experience. Remember the scene from the film 27 Dresses when Katherine Heigl opened her closet and it was filled with bridesmaid dresses that she will never get to wear again?
Brides may opt to find a style that is formal and classy enough for a wedding but also versatile to allow your bridesmaids to wear them again sometime in the future. You may also have them pick their own style for their heather bridesmaid dresses. Your bridesmaids are likely to wear the dresses that they have chosen and asking them to take control over this matter is one less thing to worry about in your wedding preparation.
It can be challenging to find a style that will suit all your bridesmaids as not all women have the same body type. Consider trying a mismatched style for their heather bridesmaid dresses. The gowns may have different styles but the heather color will tie them all together. You will be surprised by how good they look in photographs.
You can do away with the trend and instead focus on the style that will suit your bridesmaids best. If they feel sexy and confident in a strapless gown or an empire style, then allow them to choose these styles.
Bright purple, pastel pink and light blue are lovely for weddings, but using these colors in another setting are not recommended as they are typical choices for bridesmaid dresses. The color heather is a neutral everyday shade and by choosing the right pattern, heather bridesmaid dresses can be worn again.
You may also decide to choose a plain style for the dresses and rely on a statement accessory to spruce up your heather bridesmaid dresses. This will allow your bridesmaids to style the dress as they want if they decide to wear it again.
Choose accessories that will complement the style of the heather bridesmaid dress as well as coordinate the looks of your bridesmaids. By having a coordinated accessory, you will also differentiate them from guests who may opt to wear a dress in your wedding motif.
Separates are another way to ensure that bridesmaids would be able to wear their heather dresses again. Many brides are opting for separates because this style is affordable and practical. A skirt and a top may be perfectly tailored to suit the wedding theme. Separates are a versatile style so it can be used in any wedding regardless of the theme, season and location. Your bridesmaids will be able then to use the top or skirt of their heather bridesmaid dresses and pair them with other outfits for other occasions.
