CHEAP BRIDESMAID DRESSES
Discount Bridesmaids Dresses That Still Look Nice
Many women hear the words cheap bridesmaid dresses and they automatically cringe. That's because in the recent past, bridesmaids dresses were cookie cutter nightmares in unflattering styles and fabrics.
Fortunately for modern
bridesmaids, that is no longer the case. These days
bridesmaids are an important part of the wedding party and its
easier than ever to find
that are inexpensive yet high quality.
No bride wants to shame her
bridesmaids by dressing them poorly. Just because you're
trying to pinch a few pennies by selecting discount bridesmaids
dresses, it doesn't mean that you can't still have lovely bridesmaid
dresses. Dressing your bridesmaids
well requires you to be sensitive to their age, complexion, and body
proportions. The following tips will help you choose
bridesmaid gowns that look good but don't cost a lot.
An evening wedding or a winter wedding would call for different fabrics. Satin and chiffon can get expensive, to save money look for a blend of fabrics like a satin-organza mix.
Give each bridesmaid a call or send an email asking each of them for their ideas on the bridesmaid gown and finding out what each woman is willing to wear. Doing this will also win you extra points with your bridesmaids because they'll know that you're considering their opinions when selecting the dresses.
Discount Bridesmaids Dresses In Different Colors
If you'd like to set your bridesmaids apart and give them each an individual look, you can do it while still saving money with discount bridesmaids dresses.
What you'll do is choose a range of colors from the same family for your bridesmaids dresses.
The subtle difference in bridesmaid dress color can give each bridesmaid her own look while still keeping with your wedding color theme. Lots of discount dresses are available in different shades of the same color.
Choosing a variety of colors for
your bridesmaids' dresses also gives each bridesmaid the ability to
pick the best shade for her skin tone. If you go this route,
be sure that the colors you choose won't clash with any other part
of your wedding color theme.
Many dress lines carry different styles in the same color and fabric. You can also find mix-and-match tops and bottoms that create a different kind of a look depending on the combination used. However, if you do decide to dress all your bridesmaids in the same dress in the same color, pick a color and a style that will look good on everyone, paying special attention to the style that would be best for the most full figured women.
For dresses that are all the same, give your bridesmaids the freedom to choose their own accessories to personalize their look.
Tips for Buying Inexpensive Bridesmaids Dresses
A great place to purchase discount bridesmaids dresses is from online retailers. Ordering dresses online gives the flexibility for your bridesmaids to view and buy dresses no matter where they're located. And, there are usually significant savings when you order online, allowing you to obtain bridesmaids dresses cheap. There are also lots of regular clothing stores (like Ann Taylor and J Crew) that offer bridesmaids dresses in addition to their regular clothing lines.
Another way to save money
is to buy dresses that aren't especially for bridesmaids. You
can often find discount dresses in department store sales and at
outlets that will work well with your wedding colors and will be a
fraction of the price of a specifically made "bridesmaid" dress.
