After first surviving the task of picking the ladies you want to be your bridesmaids, the next step is deciding on their perfect look. It may seem a little daunting at first, but worry not, these ladies will a beautiful and perfect addition to your big day.

First things first, you must decide on the color palate you will be reference all decisions on. Everything from décor to floral arrangements to the cake will incorporate the colors you choose. Be aware of what time of year your wedding will be taking place and whether the venue is inside or outside. You might want to reconsider that long and heavy dress in the middle of summer or your girls might be melting from the heat rather than you and your loved one’s heartfelt wedding vows.

After you have your color palate selected, take a moment to consider if there is an accent or complementary color that would make your bridesmaid dresses pop. A little color never hurt anyone! If you are trying to steer away from a colorful hue, natural or metallic colors go well with almost all themes no matter what time of year.

Dare to be a little different and leave the summery pastel colors at home! Opt for a brighter color that sparkles in the sun rather than blends in with the background. If your wedding is in the fall or winter, try a rich, deep hue or go a little crazy with a winter pale selection for your girls.

Finally, be sure to accessorize. Whether your girls all have matching shoes and jewelry or if you are allowing their freak flags to fly, make sure your accessories are appropriate and still fun! Remember, it is a party! Colorful shoes, cool hairpieces, or simple statement jewelry are all you need to take your bridesmaids look up a notch.
