Top 5 Tips for Bridesmaids Shopping

So your girl just got engaged, and the next step is finding your bridesmaid dress!  With styles, sizes, colors, prices, and timeline to consider, bridesmaids shopping can seem really hectic and overwhelming!

While we at Something New are passionate about helping brides find their dream wedding dresses, we also love helping bridesmaids find the perfect dresses too! Here are our top 5 tips for bridesmaid dress shopping.

#1 Let the bride be your guide

When it comes to bridesmaid dresses, let the bride take the lead. The bride will likely have colors and styles in mind before she starts shopping! In some cases, she may want everyone to be in the same color and dress style while other cases may result in bridesmaids being in completely different styles and colors. Although you may be wearing the dress, it’s important to remember that it is the bride’s big day and we all want her vision to come true!

#2 Timeliness is Key

Similar to bridal dresses and mother of the bride dresses, bridesmaid dresses will take some time to come in so if the bride sets an order date with the help of a stylist, be sure to order your dress by that date. Keep in mind that if you are going to need dress alterations, you will want to order your dress earlier so you have time to make any alterations!

#3 Be Prepared

When you arrive for your bridesmaid appointment, be prepared! Wear neutral undergarments and maybe even bring the shoes and accessories you are going to wear on the day of the wedding. This will be so helpful for the bride to see her wedding day vision come to life when everyone is trying on dresses! If you are looking for a full party appointment, we have a Private Bridesmaid Party appointment upgrade at Something New! You can bring in your full bride tribe and enjoy food and drinks, while one of our expert stylists helps you find the perfect look for your bridal party.

#4 Be Open to Options

 The bride probably has a good idea of the look she is going for by the time you try on dresses at a bridesmaid appointment. When going into an appointment, keep an open mind to her suggestions! She knows the overall aesthetic of the big day and it’s important to trust the bride will realize if certain dresses are not working for the bridal party!

#5 Trust the Experts

 With our team of expert stylists at Something New, we will ensure the entire wedding party is taken care of! We take the time to get to know the bride, her bridesmaids and her vision and work one-on-one with you and your group to find the perfect look for everyone!
