Your big day is quickly approaching, and you might feel stressed out at the thought of choosing what your bridesmaids are going to wear. Don't sweat it. The first thing you need to consider is, of course, your wedding colors. Shop for hues that will complement your chosen theme.
Be sure to consider the shape of each of your bridesmaids. A-line fits are universally flattering and are a great choice if someone in your bridal party has a little more to love. Shift dresses are comfortable, and you can find great belts to give them a little more shape.
Also, ask your girls about their modesty preferences. If someone doesn't want to show a lot of leg or cleavage, try to accommodate.
Shopping Secondhand for Bridesmaid Dresses
At thredUP, we offer designer bridesmaid dresses from some of the most noteworthy names in the fashion industry. When you dress your friends up in names like BCBGMAXAZRIA or Tadashi, they're going to love you forever. However, the love may not be so strong if you expect them to pay full retail price for their wedding wear. Send them to thredUP, where secondhand thrills await. The prices are amazing and the quality is unquestionable. Every item description includes a note about an item's condition so you won't suffer any unpleasant surprises.
The only downside to ordering bridesmaid dresses secondhand is that size and style selection are limited; you might not be able to find the same gown for everyone in your wedding party. However, if you can find several dresses in the same color, your bridal party will maintain its unified look even if the styles are slightly different. You can also explore the possibility of dying or tailoring dresses that are almost right.
If you order something from us and decide it won't work, send it back for free. Then, you or your bridesmaids can use the shopping credit to look for women's designer heels or a perfect clutch to use at the wedding.
Bridesmaid Dresses Aren't Just for Weddings
As you browse our inventory of bridesmaid dresses, you'll find that many of them are simply women's designer formal dresses. You could wear them to your upcoming work party or to another occasion that requires an extra dose of class. Women's designer cocktail dresses are ideal for a night at that swanky club downtown.
Complement your new dress with the right accessories. A slim crossbody bag leaves your hands free so you can dance the night away. The right jewelry or a pretty silk scarf adds extra charm to an already jaw-dropping ensemble.
Whether you're a bride-to-be, a bridesmaid-to-be, or just someone who wants a fabulous formal dress, shop thredUP to discover what secondhand has to offer!
