What's Hot Now??

Gone are the days of making your bridesmaids wear heinous dresses, you know the ones I'm talking about. The dresses in colours you didn't even know existed, with so many layers of ruffles you don't know which end is which, don't worry if you were a victim to one of these dresses, you can just shorten it and wear it again!

Thankfully now a days bridesmaids dresses can be quite cute, colourful and can actually be worn again. It is also completely acceptable to pick a colour and fabric and let the girls go to town on which style to wear, lets face it, no 2 bodies are the same, not everyone is going to look fabulous in the same dress. So show your girls some love and let them choose!

Now if you're a really laid back bride, just tell your girls to wear a black cocktail dress, this way they probably don't even need to buy a new one and if they do they can pick an LBD (little black dress) that is  timeless.

Just remember when going through the bridesmaids dress chosing ritual to listen to the girls, you'd never want anyone to feel uncomfortable, even though it is your big day, the girls are still in the spotlight with you! And also keep in mind how it feels to be in their shoes, if you haven't been yet, I'm sure you will be at some point. Always, always, ALWAYS (can you tell I want you to keep this in mind?) you've asked these girls to be a part of your big day, but its not their wedding, so don't expect the world of them and their wallets, ensure they know how much they mean too you and how much you appreciate the time and energy they are putting into your big day :)

If you haven't seen 27 Dresses, its a great reminder of why you want to be kind to your bridesmaids!
Need I say more? Here are some great bridesmaids dress sites The Dessy Group and David's Bridal . Lucky for us Canadian girls we finally have some David's Bridal locations here! Although an excuse to go to Buffalo is always welcome :)
