What a bridesmaid should look like at a wedding?

A wedding ceremony is an event where many people participate. A certain group of them performs the functions assigned to them by the traditions and decision of the newlyweds. For example, one of the main roles among the invited by the bride goes to the maid of honor. Since she should help the bride and groom in everything and be around all the time, she must always be on the public eye. So, she should look perfect and, ideally, the look of the maid of honor should be in harmony with the bride’s look, but at the same time not attract too much attention, outshining the leading lady of the event.

What should a bridesmaid wear to such a pleasant and honorable mission as a wedding ceremony? After all, a bridesmaid also wants to look unconventional, solemn and moderately restrained. First of all, when choosing a dress, you need to focus on the outfit that is right for you and will correspond to the celebration character. In this case, you are welcome to be versatile. For example, try mixing things from different brands. In one store, buy a chic pencil skirt, and in another, fit it together with a more solemn, even “airy” blouse. You can also buy an elegant black dress of a democratic brand, and complement it with an awesome jacket and stylish accessories.

If the reason for looking for an outfit is a summer wedding in the Dominican Republic, an elegant and feminine full-skirt sundress will suit best. Just be careful with the style and color, so that the selected outfit does not resemble casual clothes for the beach. Do not forget that the bridesmaid dress should not be conservative at all. It would be useful to wonder about the latest trends, because you can look fashionable and festive at the same time.

In addition, before choosing a dress, the bridesmaid should consult with the bride, specifying in what style the wedding ceremony will be, what dress the bride preferred and what she wishes for the bridesmaid to wear. Do not forget about seasonality, as well as predicted weather conditions.

Moreover, a bride who honors European traditions can invite several bridesmaids to her wedding. In this case, of course, you can go the standard way and choose the same dresses for all the bridesmaids. But every girl has her own color type, figure features, so that the outfit of a certain style and color simply cannot suit everyone. And the bride hardly wants her original wedding to spoil the mood to any girl, who following the whim of the newlywed, will feel insecure in the wrong outfit. Therefore, it is better for bridesmaids to choose dresses that are similar in style, but have different designs.The length can be the same, for example. Moreover, choosing various shades, you can create a special entourage that will further emphasize the snow-white robe of the bride. However, the choice of color for outfits can be determined by the theme of the celebration, but, if necessary, you can play with the shades.

Bridesmaid dress color

  1. The white color for the bridesmaid is taboo. This is the prerogative of the bride.
  2. A black dress is also inappropriate, even if it is a very original wedding.
  3. An excellent choice – blue, pink, terracotta and honey shades. The bridesmaid should stick to the pastel palette when choosing a dress if there are no special instructions from the bride. A good solution would be a dress of silver or gold palette. For those who are alien to light clothing, chocolate, burgundy and dark blue colors are suitable.
  4. Recently, wedding fashion has been focusing on ivory, which is versatile, elegant and can be harmoniously combined with the bride’s dress. In this case, the bridesmaid dress should be simple and perfectly tailored on the figure.
  5. Modern original wedding welcomes the choice in favor of a red bridesmaid outfit. It is not only relevant, but also very solemn. But such a dress requires minimal makeup and the absence of bulky accessories.

The bridesmaid attire

Basically, stylists recommend A-line models to bridesmaids. This is a dress with a tight-fitting top, which gradually expands down.

Also, the bridesmaid can choose an outfit in the Empire style, which is characterized by a flowing skirt with pleats and a high waist.

It is better for the bridesmaid to abandon the ball gowns, tight-fitting mini-skirts and trousers.

The bridesmaid dress length

The perfect solution for the bridesmaid is a cocktail dress just below the knees. Following etiquette, a long dress should not be worn during the day. But for the wedding, you can prepare two dresses: a short one for dowry and ceremony, and a long one for a banquet. However, no one strictly follows this rule.

The bridesmaid dress can be both short and long. Butto avoid misbalance, remember: the longer the dress is, the more open the upper part can be and vice versa.

The bridesmaid shoes and accessories

  1. If a wedding is plannedin the Dominican Republic and the ceremony takes place on the beach, it is better to refuse high heels. Moreover, in such shoes legs get tired quickly, and the bridesmaid has to stand a lot, walk and dance during the event.
  2. If the bride is much shorter than the bridesmaid, then the latter, for the sake of her friend, should completely abandon the idea to wear heels, choosing flats.
  3. If you have a dress in pastel colors, then motley shoes will help to add brightness to your look.
  4. The bridesmaid should have a handbag. The size should be small, but sufficient for all the necessary lady’s little things. Choose the color of the handbag to match the shade of your shoes.

The bridesmaid hairstyle

The hairstyle will help to complement and complete the bridesmaid look. What styling is suitable in this case?

– slight negligence: a hairstyle that seems imperfect will give a touch of charm to any person. This may be an incomplete form of a chignon, a broken strand. Ideally, the bride and her bridesmaid should have hairstyles that combine with each other. Therefore, it is better that the same hairdresser does your hair;

– graceful curls: neatly twisted locks that carelessly fall on the shoulders, this is a win-win choice. Just decide on the size, thickness and shape of the curls. You can also complement them with a beautiful hairpin or fresh flowers;

– plait: ideal for dresses in the Greek style;

– bun: elegant, simple and suits most girls and almost all dresses.
