Traditionally the bridesmaids purpose is meant to be to literally attend to the bride and help her, as maids would, in the preparations leading up to the wedding and especially throughout the wedding day itself. Nowadays, it is mostly the maid of honour who tends to helping the bride, whereas the bridesmaids are somewhat more of a decoration. The way they look on the day and forever afterwards in the photos is crucial, and the colour chosen for their dresses usually determines the theme colour for the rest of the wedding.
Too often we hear reports from brides who chose to settle for sub-standard off-the-rack ill-fitting bridesmaids dresses. They complain that the girls looked very ordinary in the wedding photos and there is this deep regret that they didn't "do it properly", which they will experience every time they look back at their treasured photos of "the day"...
Lets think about it logically... Firstly, it is virtually impossible to get a perfect fit anywhere for anyone when buying off the rack. Secondly, it is very difficult to choose a style that will suit differing body shapes and sizes. Then try to find that "right" style in the colour you want in all the right sizes - when there are more than two bridesmaids in the wedding party you are guaranteed to find yourself up against a wall!
The bridal trend for the last five years has been for the bride to choose a colour and length of dress, but let the girls wear individual styles which will compliment and flatter each of their figures. This is a really effective trick. Even though they are in different styles, the girls will clearly still be identifiable as "the bridesmaids" (as they are all in the same colour) looking their best...that is, if their dresses are custom-made to fit them perfectly! On this point, we would like to offer an experienced word of advice to the bride - which is, that your wedding is YOUR wedding, so the colour choice should ultimately be yours. Too often we have witnessed groups of girls given the freedom to come in to choose a colour, with a resulting quarrel because they couldn't all come to an agreement - it is a sure-fire way to cause upset in a group of girls who are overly-focused on the way they will look and an easy way for the them to loose sight of the fact that it is the bride's day, and it really should be her decision...!
This is why many, many brides opt to have their bridesmaids dresses custom made with us, where the only major decision is what colour and lengths the dresses will be and the rest is relatively easy.
