How exciting it is to choose just the right couture bridesmaid dress for the big event!
With so many excellent couture shops and the tremendous variety of style and colors, this can be very thrilling, or exhausting, depending on your approach.
Many experts will suggest that you get your absolute needs written down first....preferred color or colors, basic "look" you are trying to achieve, and any important aspects that you and your bridesmaid(s) require.
This will eliminate stress and confusion later, especially if the bride decides to allow the bridesmaids a lot of freedom in the selection process.
We always want to start with our goal clearly defined, a sort of "roadmap", if you will, before we embark on our journey!
A true couture dress for will accomplish several things in the area of bridesmaid couture:
1. ENSURE THAT EXACT MEASUREMENTS ARE TAKEN TO GUARANTEE A PERFECT FIT FOR THE COUTURE BRIDESMAID GOWN, AND
2. PROVIDE THE BENEFIT OF THE WIDEST SELECTION OF FABRICS AND STYLES POSSIBLE, ENSURING THE SUCCESS OF THE ORIGINAL DESIRED GOAL, AND FINALLY,
3. TO ACCESS THE WISDOM AND ADVICE OF AN EXPERIENCED COUTURIER FOR IDEAS ON THE MOST FLATTERING STYLE AND CUT FOR EACH BRIDESMAID'S DISTINCT FIGURE-TYPE AND PERSONALITY.
(J-NA TIP:*** THERE ARE ALSO COLOR-ANALYZING SERVICES AVAILABLE IN THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY, TO FIND THE MOST FLATTERING FABRIC AND MAKE-UP COLORS FOR THE LADY'S SKIN TONE AND FEATURES.)
Some brides have very definite ideas for their couture bridesmaid design, while others adopt a more democratic-style approach, taking into consideration the bridesmaid(s) wishes.
A word of caution is in order, though! As we may guess, the democratic voting process can lead to a stalemate or outright war if more than 2-3 bridesmaids are involved! They say opinions vary...but they can clash. We will leave that to your discretion!
