Choose the most gorgeous dresses for your bridesmaids

Allusion Photography 2-1

Obviously, your wedding is very important to you – but so is for the special people in your life. Your bridesmaids, for example, will want to feel really special on such an important day for you – and while there are surely a lot of wedding planning elements you still have to think of, your bridesmaids’ dresses should definitely not be among the least important ones.

How to choose the most gorgeous dresses for your bridesmaids? Here are some great tips to help you with this:

  • Stick to simplicity, don’t go too crazy, and keep practicality in mind. You may think intricate dresses that imitate a ballgown are really pretty (and they are!), but chances are that these dresses will cost too much and will be quite uncomfortable too. Better stay with simpler designs and fabrics, as well as with affordable choices!
  • Leave it up to your bridesmaids. A simple way to choose dresses your bridesmaids will actually like? Send them some color swatches and brief guidelines on what they should wear, and leave it up to them to make the final choice. After all, every woman knows what suits her – and your bridesmaids make no exception. Also, keep in mind that you can connect your bridesmaids’ looks with the bouquets too, not just with the color and/or general design of the dresses.
  • Whatever you do, remember that your wedding will only last one day. Your friendships, on the other hand, are forever. There’s no point in risking your friendship over a dress – so make choices your bridesmaids will actually appreciate and they will look splendid!

  • Sporty tank tops. Are you and your ladies the kind of girls who really like being comfortable? Get some color-matched tank tops for you and your bridesmaids and accessorize them with delicate bows for an adorable and fashionable effect. It will look so great in the pictures!
  • Silky bathrobes. They always work and they always have the power to put a smile on a lady’s face – so they will surely make for a more than welcomed gift for your bridesmaids. Choose bathrobes that match each other in style and color, so that you all look fabulous in the pictures!
  • Flannel shirts. For a comfy and tomboyish effect, buy flannel shirts for your entire wedding party. Make them color-coordinated for your bridesmaids and choose a shirt that’s a bit different for you, so that you create a nice and stylish effect for the “Getting Ready” photos.
  • Personalized makeup or emergency kit bags. Offer your bridesmaids something they will use again – such as a unique makeup bag or an emergency kit that contains everything they may need in case of an emergency (such as if the dress gets torn or stained, for example). They will be more than appreciative of your gesture!

Have you chosen a date for your wedding yet? Take a look at some lucky days, and days to avoid!

Choosing a wedding date is one of the first and foremost important steps in planning a wedding. How to make sure you choose a really lucky date, though? What are some of the myths and superstitions surrounding wedding dates? We have gathered them right below – so read on if you need a bit of inspiration.

  • According to the Jewish tradition, Tuesdays are considered to be suspicious when it comes to weddings. Furthermore, they also say that a wedding should take part after a new moon, which will also grant luck and blessings to the newlyweds.
  • In astrology, the beginning of the month is also considered to be quite lucky – so you might want to heed this tip of advice and settle yourself wherever you feel best.
  • 8th of August. Planning a summer wedding? Have it on the 8th of August, then! In some Asian traditions, the number “8” is associated with prosperity and good fortune. So, August 8th may be a great choice for your wedding date as well.
  • Depending on your religious denomination, you might not be allowed to have your wedding during certain religious holidays (or the fasting period preceding them). Before you type out the Save the Date cards, make sure to double check with your ceremony officiant and see for sure.
  • While Christmas is considered the most wonderful time of the year, and 4th of July is full of excitement, they may not be the best days to choose for your wedding. With many holidays throughout the year, choosing your wedding date around them may be better than on them, as many people usually have plans already made.
  • Last, but not least, don’t choose a wedding date because someone else suggests it, but because it makes sense to you and your love story. Regardless of what date you choose, know that your loved ones and friends will be there to enjoy your big day.

Do you know how to choose your bridesmaids for your wedding?

Allusion Photography - APPROVED

Choosing the wedding party is one of the most important Big Day-related tasks. While most brides-to-be have many friends, making the choice for the bridal party can honestly be a daunting ordeal.

How to choose your bridesmaids? How to make sure nobody’s feelings get hurt? Even more, how to make sure the ladies standing by your side at the altar are happy? We have gathered some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Whatever you do, remember that this is your Not your mom’s, not his aunt’s and definitely not your sister’s. It is your wedding and you choose who your bridesmaids are. Don’t let anyone tell you what to do when it comes to this.
  • You might actually want to include in-laws. Yes, you read that right. You may not be very close to them right now, but you will be. Soon enough, they will be part of your family and you will be part of theirs. And while friends may move to other states and relationships may cool, family will always be there – including in-laws. Start on the right foot by including your future sister(s)-in-law in the wedding party.
  • Also, you might not be able to include everyone you want. We mean this. You may have lots of friends who might not make it to the wedding party, but that doesn’t mean you cannot assign them important tasks for the Big Day. Some of them may play a song or have a reading during your wedding ceremony or reception. Others may have a beautiful toast to dedicate to you and your spouse. Whatever you choose for them, it will surely make them feel really special in your life!
