Gone are the days when being a bridesmaid meant you had to dress up in a hideous outfit that didn’t suit you, looked old fashioned, was a dodgy colour or even all three of these!
At The Harrogate Wedding Lounge we offer a modern, fresh and contemporary collection with lots of individual style and colour choices meaning all of your bridal party can feel comfortable and look amazing at the same time. Here are our top 3 tips for brides on bridesmaid dress shopping and ideas to make everyone feel comfortable:
- Let them be individual – not for everyone we appreciate but depending on the formality of your wedding why not let your bridesmaids express their individual style. You can dictate the colour and material and they can choose their own style. Or you can even be really daring and allow them to pick their own dress and all be completely different! The Jim Hjelm Occassions collection offers over 60 styles in 6 different fabrics and over 50 different colours, so if you choose what colour you want and they all choose their own dress everyone’s happy.
- Straps, Wraps and Bolero’s – Not all dresses have straps but most can either come with them as an option or we can make some for you from extra material. All of our dresses come with optional shoes string straps if they are required and jackets are avaliable to order in the same material ideal for covering the shoulders during a church ceremony or for the photos on a nippy day.
- Consider buying something they can wear again – There are numerous reasons this is a good idea. For budget savvy brides if you would like your bridesmaids to contribute to the cost of their outfit this is a fair compromise. We have some fantastic wear again styles in our collection
Our Bridesmaids Collections range in price from £200 – £295 and all of our brides receive a 10% discount on bridesmaids dresses when they have purchased their bridal gown.
