3 Things to Consider:

While all eyes are on you, it is still impor tant to make sure that your bridesmaids, groomsmen and husband-to-be look good too. Find a boutique that has all the dresses you need in one place. And for the guys, work with a store that can provide tailor fit solutions for your man and his groomsmen.

Don’t feel like everyone should match. Show off each person’s personality by purchasing formal wear in the same color, but letting them each wear a different style or cut.

3 Questions to Ask:

Is it appropriate for the entire bridal party to go bridesmaid dress shopping?

Some boutiques encourage you to bring as many opinions as you want, while others may have a store too small for your entire party. Ask ahead before you schedule your girl’s day out.

How similar or dissimilar should the groom’s tuxedo be from the members of his party?

While all eyes will be on you, it’s his big day too. The professionals at the store can help him find a balance between standing out from the crowd and stealing your spotlight.

Are the mother-of-the-bride and mother-of-the-groom dresses suppose to be similar to the bridal party?

What’s right for your wedding is completely up to you, and in this case, the moms. Store professionals can advise you on current trends as well as provide ideas from other wedding’s they’ve done.
