So you already have a few of your best friends in mind to be your bridesmaids, you’ve got your colors picked out, you’ve got the bridesmaids dresses designed in your head and now you’re worried about finding that dress in those sizes. You remember what it was like at prom, there was very little selection if you’re above a size six which is just plain ridiculous and the price tags that were already astronomical skyrocketed with every extra foot of fabric needed. Well never fear, the times have changed, you can find dresses in all different sizes now and the best part is they’re usually on sale after the itsy bitsy sizes sell out in a flash.
Where are these sales you’re wondering? Try David’s Bridal for one, or look them up online at davidsbridal.com, their dresses come in an excellent range of sizes, colors and fabrics. Now that you’ve got the price tag down to a more manageable range, you want to look for dresses that are flattering on full figures. A slinky dress is extremely uncomfortable when combined with love handles or imperfect abs, an empire waist however is perhaps more elegant and more importantly, forgiving in the mid section area. Princess style dresses with their flowing skirts go a long way to hiding the sins of too much wedding cake taste testing.
Delicate and inexpensive shawls or scarves can hide arms that need to be worked on and a pair of high heels goes a long way to making anyone’s legs look good. Corset topped dresses accentuate cleavage and highlight some of your bridesmaids best features, combined with skirts in layers of tulle or satin your best friends swirl on perfumed clouds of elegance and grace all night long. One can always branch out from the traditional bridesmaids dresses as well and look into saris for your bridesmaids or kimonos perhaps, which have excellent drape to hide a multitude of sins and are available for relatively cheaper prices than a full ball gown.
Everyone can look good in the right outfit, don’t let the fact that your best friends may not fit the classic mould affect your judgment when considering them for your bridesmaids. After all it’s better to have them near you on your day than to be concerned with such petty things as price tags at such a special time. Also, don’t forget you can have your bridesmaids pay for their own dresses, easing your stress and ensuring that each bridesmaid gets the best dress for her figure.
