Event Design | Choosing Your Wedding Attire

Try to resist falling in love with a bridesmaid gown until after you've selected your own gown, the venue, and overall style of your wedding. Once you have your wedding color palette, you'll have a better idea of what gown designers you're interested in, since not every designer has every color each season.

And although I love an event to flow seamlessly, your bridesmaids do NOT have to match the linens. There are so many ways to make everything flow, but putting your bridesmaid dresses in the same silver fabric that is gracing your tables is not the way. Instead, we use that great palette you've created to find another shade that will work well with everything.

The wedding gown, above, is a white taffeta, a-line gown with slight sweetheart neckline. And although very different from one another, both of the bridesmaid gowns work well with this dress because they compliment the gown. Try not to get caught up in matching necklines, fabric and details - instead, focus on finding a dress that all your ladies are comfortable in, look fantastic in, and match the overall style of the wedding day.
