Having bridesmaid woes?

Our Brides

Having bridesmaid woes? Never fear, we’re here to help!

For all you late summer brides, now is the time to focus on the finer details including your gorgeous bridesmaids. Order times vary for bridesmaids dresses so it’s important to get in there early to avoid disappointment, and we know finding something a group of girlfriends of all different shapes, sizes and styles agree on can be a tricky one so start early!

Begin with a colour pallet you, as the bride, want for your wedding, it’s not vital for bridesmaids to match entirely these days, gone are the Four Weddings and a Funeral style matching peach puffballs and headbands, now is the time for something modern and chic; mix and match until your heart’s content…or your bridesmaids are! For a summer garden or rustic wedding pale pinks, blues and greens are always firm favourites; not overwhelming the venue or bride. Bold colours work best for winter or formal black tie affairs, such as rich navy’s or plum, the bridesmaids need to stand out against the other guests so think elegant and glamorous.

Our Ghost dye to order range are perfect for both, with a range of colours and styles, they bring a contemporary fashion edge to the bridesmaid scene, something we haven’t seen for a while. The Sylvia in dusty green, see below, or skylight is the perfect mix of pretty feminine detailing and high fashion elegance.

Once you have a colour pallet think about what styles would suite your bridesmaids, you need to be practical here; do any of your bridesmaids need to wear a bra? Are some a lot taller that others? Might some be pregnant or breastfeeding?

The twobirds dresses, pictured below, are perfect for a group of maids that vary in size and shape, coming in a huge variety of colours and with a multitude of wrapping styles, including a bandeau top for those in need of extra coverage, they really can fix a lot of bridesmaid woes.
