- 2. Imagine your Bridesmaid Wearing the Dress
Would your girls wear something short or long? What would you pair with their bouquet? Asking yourself if your bridesmaids would actually enjoy wearing your dress may not be the forefront of your mind. This should, however, add to the decision. If you have bridesmaids that are similar in body shape, this question may be altered. With ladies who have varying assets, you wouldn’t want to put a dress on them that isn’t flattering or comfortable. Choose an off-white or ivory white bridesmaid dress that has coverage and romantic appeal.
