Pick Colors that Match Your Bridesmaids’ Skin Tone

Consider The Venue Of Your Wedding 

Besides taking into consideration the season and also the colors, where your wedding will be held plays an important role in picking out the best bridesmaid dresses. A formal indoor venue like a ballroom calls for dresses that are more formal such as a ball gown.  Casual weddings that are held in your own backyard or a farmhouse means that you can select a style that is more laid-back like a strapless dress or midi dresses.

For outdoor weddings in the fall can mean chilly temperatures so you may want to consider long-sleeve dresses or you can get your bridal party to accessorize their outfits with formal coverups or a stole to keep warm. If your wedding is going to be held at the beach, it means that you can select dresses that are a bit more casual like spaghetti strap dress or a form fitting shorter dress. Most importantly, you want your bridesmaids to be comfortable and not sweating or shivering on your wedding day.
