How to make the most of your wedding day and your bridesmaid dresses without spending a fortune

Contributor 6 Min Read

Your wedding day should be one of the most memorable days in your life. Take a moment or two to read my advice below to avoid certain costly mistakes when choosing your perfect bridesmaid dresses

So, the wedding day has been finalized and your loved ones can see the glow on your face. But unfortunately, this glow and blush won’t stay long if you’ve chosen the wrong dress for your ladies. Getting the flimsiest bridesmaid dresses can be the worst mistake a bride can commit. Do not turn your special day into a nightmare. Follow these simple tricks and get hold of classy yet affordable bridesmaid dresses.

Do not set your appointment too late in the day

The early bird gets the worm and early bridesmaids get the best dress. Don’t get it? Let me explain. If you plan to hit the bridal store, set your appointment early in the morning. In this way, you will get the full attention of the store staff who hasn’t faced the queries of other clients. The store will be less crowded and you will be welcomed by energetic, fresh bridal store staff who will help you to get the best bridesmaid dresses for the girl gang, and all within your budget.

Do not focus on trends

You might get blown over by those sexy cuts and elaborate embellishments. But before looking out for details, focus on the style of your wedding theme and the personal style of your friends and bridesmaids. Figure out what style and color will look good on them. Try out traditional stuff like lacework, sequin designs, or perhaps spaghetti straps. These styles will last longer. Do not get influenced by the trend of the moment.

Keep trying

Dresses on a hanger can never give you the true idea of how they will look on the bridesmaids. It can be misleading. A dress only shows its true self when it embraces a woman’s body. So, let your besties try as many dresses as they can in order to find the perfect short prom dresses or bridesmaid dresses. As we mentioned, there are many different types of wedding dresses to choose from these days. At Avery Austin, we’ll guide you through everything you need to know about choosing your dress. We’ll discuss the different options you can choose from, and most importantly, how to pick the right dress style for your wedding theme, body, and budget. The hard work will pay off in the end, trust me.

Do not try too many because you have to

Don’t get me wrong. I am not trying to confuse you. What I want to convey is that your bridesmaids must not feel forced to try every garment you see.  They do not have to try twenty dresses at every store because you feel that they have to. It will only create confusion and panic. It is ok if they get the perfect dress on the third or fourth trial. Getting lucky isn’t a bad thing at all!

Bring your girl gang along

It’s your day, true. But it’s also your pals’ day. After all, they are the bridesmaids! Don’t forget to let them tag them along while shopping for their attires at your wedding. Let them express their choices and feel the wedding mood too. Make the perfect yet cheap bridesmaid dress hunting a memorable experience for your besties.

Do not forget your accessories

Now that you have got the perfect bridesmaid attire, it’s time for your gang to rejoice. Well, maybe not quite yet…

What about the accessories? And I mean accessories that match. Don’t let your impulse take the lead while choosing the accessories as these things can make or break the deal. Even if you want to buy that sexy hat for your ladies but that does not match the dress, keep your hands off it. Instead, go for those pearl strings that match the style and color of the bridesmaid attire.

All said and done, I hope you have got some idea about how to go hunting for cheap bridesmaid dresses. The bottom line is to think before you decide. Do not forget to emphasize the style and choice of your bridesmaids. I wish you all the best.

Let the search begin.
