Big Picture- Bridesmaid Dresses

May 5, 2011

Give your bridesmaids the gift they can wear over and over again. When selecting an ensemble for your favorite ladies, consider how the outfit will photograph.  As a rule of thumb: if it photographs well, then it looks good in real life, too.

It’s a good idea to look for dresses in interesting colors and shapes. Prints can work too, though I recommend sticking with a smaller scale pattern. Also make sure your bridesmaids and groomsmen are not wearing the same overall color. If you’re not careful, your wedding day can turn into a sea of (insert color here). If you aren’t sure what to pick, show your photographer a few options – he or she should be able to steer you in the right direction.

These lovely numbers would look incredible on your wedding party and can all be found at Net-a-Porter. Notice we did not select any black dresses. Black is a nice idea because bridesmaids can re-wear the color more easily, but black dresses do not photograph well – especially if the groomsmen are wearing black suits. Too much black!
