If you have a very specific vision for bridesmaids dresses, the least you could do is give them a choice of the dresses you like, and let them pick their favorite. After all, everyone’s body type is different and they know what suits them best.
Plan your perfect big day with these five, most important wedding tips:
- Be Budget-Realistic
Before you plan anything for your wedding, sit down with your partner and have a realistic talk about your budget. Determine how much you have to spend and decide what’s most important and what is less important to both of you; then prioritize. Find just one or two items that you want to splurge on and save on the rest.
- Guests Are Important
Before you settle on a venue you need to know the (approximate) number of guests you will invite. You should also give your guests extra notice: a couple of months to a year’s notice, depending on the location of your wedding.
Also, yes, this is your day – the day when you and your partner celebrate and crown your love. But don’t forget about your friends and family – spend time with the people that came to celebrate with you.
- The Gown
Before you even try on a wedding dress, think about the occasion first. You shouldn’t wear the same dress for a small country wedding with 40 guests and a big city wedding with 400 guests.
Also, your dress needs to be suitable for the season, current weather, time of day and of course, it needs to be budget-friendly. Perfect wedding dresses exist only in movies. In reality, all you have to do is pick a dress that you like and makes you look good, is practical for the above reasons, and is within your budget.
- Keep Your Bridesmaids Happy
Your bridesmaids should be your best friends, and you should treat them that way even at your own wedding. Ask them what they would like to wear instead of choosing everything yourself. If you have a very specific vision for the bridesmaids dresses, the least you could do is give them a choice of the dresses you like, and let them pick their favorite. After all, everyone’s body type is different and they know what suits them best.
Don’t forget what this day is really about: you and your partner, family and friends. It’s a day when people come together, celebrate and have fun. All the planning and strict schedule can make you forget to actually be present in every moment. Eat, drink, dance, laugh and cry – all you have to do to make you wedding a success is end the day married.
