If your bridesmaids are paying for, or contributing for their own dresses, think about what each can afford. One may be able to pay for a seriously expensive dress but that may not be the case for all so putting a budget on it can be a real helping hand for the girls who have less to fork out. For advice, be sure to check out our hitched budget planner _ it can really help you decide what to spend and the areas to spend it on.
Find complementary colors: Also, think about choosing a shade that goes well with a variety of skin tones. Stonewashed colors, like blush, greige (a combination of gray and beige) and sand, are universally flattering and right on trend. Jewel tones (think amethyst, emerald and sapphire) complement fairer complexions, while brighter, bolder hues, like cobalt blue and hot pink, pop against darker skin. Want an edgier feel? Try flattering metallics, like silver, bronze and champagne.
