When choosing bridesmaid dresses, it’s important to consider your budget and the style preferences of your friends. A lot of women have different body types, and picking a dress that flatters everyone can be difficult.

For a cohesive look, go with a palette of three to four colors and stick with matching silhouettes or fabrics. This way, each dress can complement the others without looking too busy or chaotic.

Budget

The budget for bridesmaid dresses can seem overwhelming – and for good reason. The dress is an unavoidable part of the wedding day planning process.

But, there are ways to cut costs on this crucial item without sacrificing the look you want for your bridal party! First, shop sales.

Another great option is to rent a dress. Companies like Rent the Runway offer a wide selection of designer dresses, starting at $40.

You can also consider getting your bridesmaids to choose their own styles, which makes it easier on everyone and ensures your bridal party looks beautiful on your big day (without blowing through your savings).

One of our favorite brands for cheap bridesmaid dresses is Lulus. Their selection is incredibly on-trend and has something for every woman. Plus, they have a try-at-home program to help you choose the perfect fit! You can even return a dress that you’re not happy with for a full refund.

Style

When it comes to the style of your bridesmaid dresses, you want something that looks flattering on your friends and will feel comfortable for them to wear again. You also want to make sure that the fabric you pick isn’t too heavy, and that the colors are flattering to your group as a whole.

One of the most popular styles for weddings is maxi dresses. These flowy gowns feel fun and flirty and can work for many different occasions, from beach ceremonies to more relaxed backyard events and garden parties.

Longer dresses can help women who are self-conscious about their legs, especially if they spend a lot of time booging on the dance floor. They’re also easier to pull down if they need to, and the material doesn’t chafe.

Fabric

The type of fabric used in a bridesmaid dress will have an impact on how the dress looks and feels on the wedding day. Knowing the different options available will help you find a bridesmaid dress that works for your budget and style preferences.

Chiffon is one of the most popular fabrics used for bridesmaid dresses because it works with a variety of dress silhouettes and creates a romantic, ethereal look on your girls as they walk down the aisle. It’s also lightweight and fairly breathable which is important for warm weather weddings!

Another popular choice for bridesmaid dresses is tulle. Tulle comes in a wide range of weights and levels of stiffness. While it can be seen as a traditional bridal fabric, it’s been trending for sexy illusion styles with barely-there sleeves and necklines. Tulle is also very lightweight and usually inexpensive, which is ideal for a budget-conscious bride.

Length

Short bridesmaid dresses are a fun and casual alternative to traditional long gowns. They look great on women of all shapes and sizes, and can be paired with a variety of shoes for a stylish ensemble.

Choosing a shorter dress also gives your girls more opportunities to wear it again after your wedding. That’s particularly helpful if you’re on a budget or planning an easy-going big day.

Another great thing about short dresses is that they often cover the shoe, which means your girls will be able to choose a pair of shoes that fit them comfortably. Plus, they’ll be able to walk down the aisle in style and without worrying about falling on their feet.

You may also want to consider tea-length options, which stop right at the ankle and are perfect for showing off your girls’ shoes. But be sure that your’maids all get their gowns hemmed at the same length above the knee.
