If you're opting for a print, make sure the dominant colors work with your entire bridal party. Or alternatively, deck out just your maid of honor in a print and keep the rest of your girls in solid colors. Fully embellished dresses are another fashion_forward option for a more glamorous affair. We love the idea of mismatched sequin dresses__that way your girls can choose a shade that suits them.
Time It Well: Whether your bridesmaids are buying designer or off_the_rack, or renting their dresses, you should set and stick to a timeline to ensure no one is scrambling at the last minute. For a designer gown, it will take two to three months for the order to arrive, and then another four to six weeks for any alterations, so six months is an ideal time frame. Because off_the_rack dresses may sell out quicker, as soon as you find a style you love, you should have your attendants purchase it. Renting a gown can take at least two weeks to receive, so make sure they plan accordingly.
