We know how incredibly hard it can be to find one dress style to suit all of your bridesmaids especially if they are different ages, heights, sizes etc. We love ASOS bridesmaid dresses, there is a huge choice and bridesmaid dresses are affordable. Look out for their discount codes and sales as you might just get an absolute bargain.
Bridesmaid Dress Trends
One trend we are seeing right now, is mis-matched bridesmaid dresses and done well looks very stylish. Why not consider a colour pallette where your maids can choose a dress and style that fits the theme. Everyone is a winner! Bridesmaids are more likely to pay for their own dress if they have picked it themselves. ASOS bridesmaid dresses start from only £20 so you can grab an absolute bargain and the choice of styles and colours is pretty unbeatable.
Bridesmaid Styles to suit everyone
Many of the images you see of the perfect row of maids in the same dress style and colour; all the girls are generally the same, height, age and build and that is all well and good but for many of us this can be a challenge. It also helps that you can shop online especially if your trying to co-ordinate with busy pals. Shopping online makes it much simpler for bridesmaids who may live and work away.
Who Pays for Bridesmaid Dresses
Traditionally bridesmaid dresses would be covered by the wedding budget but that is not to say it has to be this way. Broaching the subject of asking bridesmaids to pay for their own dresses especially after they have accepted the job could be awkward. Set this expectation out clearly when you ask your friends to be maids then your maids can decide for themselves.
How many Bridesmaids should you have?
If your looking to break the world record for the number of bridesmaids then you need to be rounding up at least 169 bridesmaids. Yes you read correctly, most weddings in the UK would struggle to get this many guests let alone bridesmaids. The current world record was set in April, 2015 by Tina Ackles from Florida, USA. On a more serious note consider the extra expenses additional bridesmaids will incur, special outfits, hair and makeup, transport and accommodation as well as Thankyou gifts. Choose bridesmaids that are either close family or lifelong friends and this way you may be able to keep your numbers in check.
