Choosing Bridesmaid Dresses: 5 Mistakes

Have you selected your bridesmaids' dresses yet? Your gown will obviously be the most important dress of the day, but it's important that your girls look and feel great, too. This week, our bridal salon in West Palm Beach is here to examine a few mistakes brides commonly make when selecting bridesmaid dresses. By familiarizing yourself with these now, you'll be less likely to fall victim to them as you continue the planning process.


Mistake #1: Giving Your Girls Too Many Options
When it comes to shopping for bridesmaid dresses, your first instinct may be to gather your girls together to ask what type of dress they'd like to wear. However, asking your girls to start with an empty slate will likely result in a myriad of different opinions that may be impossible to build on. Instead, we recommend that you select three options and let your girls pick their favorites from there.

Mistake #2: Not Asking Your Bridesmaids' Opinions
As the bride, you ultimately have the final say on what your bridesmaids wear. As we just discussed, asking your girls' opinions may seem like an impossible way to settle on a solution. However, while you may not be able to let your girls choose exactly what dresses they wear, it's wise to touch base with your bridal party to see what's on their "no fly" lists. This will give you some basic options to eliminate, which will make your search easier.

Mistake #3: Waiting Too Long To Begin The Search
You're probably well aware that you should begin shopping for your wedding dress at least six to eight months in advance, but did you know that you should allocate a comparable amount of time to find your bridesmaid dresses? It takes time to find the perfect dresses, and it's important to allow your girls plenty of time for fittings and any necessary alterations.

Mistake #4: Not Accounting For Different Body Types
If you're like most brides, chances are good that your bridesmaids are all very different women with very different body types. Depending on their physiques, a dress that is gorgeous on one bridesmaid may be less flattering on another one. Your bridesmaids deserve to look and feel great on your big day. Be considerate and look for a dress type that will flatter everyone in your bridal party. If their body types are drastically different, you may want to consider mismatching styles.

Mistake #5: Not Giving The Dresses A Thorough Test Run
When your bridesmaids try on their dresses, it's important to run through all the motions they anticipate making at your wedding. Posing for pictures and standing at the altar is only part of the story - they'll also be running around helping you finish getting everything ready, and dancing (and maybe even jumping up and down) at the reception. Your girls shouldn't have to dance with one hand on their skirts keeping them from riding up all night.

What Should The Mother Of The Bride Wear?

Though you may not be the official star of the show, as the mother of the bride you deserve to look and feel fabulous on your daughter's big day. Celebrating your daughter's marriage is a truly special occasion, and it's important that the mother of the bride (as well as the mother of the groom) choose a dress that will make you stand out in your role while maintaining cohesion with the bridal party.


If your daughter is getting married soon, our bridal salon in West Palm Beach is here to help you select the perfect attire for the big day. We've compiled a few simple guidelines to help focus you in your search. It's important that the mother of the groom be kept in the loop so she can select the proper attire as well, so we've also included a few tips to facilitate that communication.

Selecting The Color

Traditionally, mothers of the bride are supposed to avoid the following shades: 
  • White, Ivory, and Champagne - these colors may blend too closely with the bride's gown
  • Red or other bright, flashy colors - these tones may overshadow the bride and bridal party
  • Black - this color represents mourning and, as such, is traditionally considered inappropriate for a wedding

Of course, modern mothers of the bride do not have to be restricted to these traditions if they do not want to be. The only thing that really matters is that you communicate with your daughter's plans so that you can avoid clashing with the bridesmaid dresses.

Choosing The Style

The only real restriction is that you are expected not to upstage your daughter on her special day. In keeping with this rule, mothers of the bride are traditionally expected to wear elegant and flattering, yet modest, gowns. However, you are ultimately free to choose whatever style of gown fits your personality, style, and figure. Our only important suggestion is that you consult with your bride to see if she has any opinions on your attire. It's her day, after all - you'll want to find a dress that meshes with her vision.

Communicating With The Mother Of The Groom

Traditionally, mothers of the bride were expected to select their gowns first. Once they had chosen their attire, they were expected to communicate with the mother of the groom so that the latter could find a dress that would match the formality and style of the former's. 

In modern weddings, mothers of the bride and groom are not necessarily required to follow this timeline. It is still recommended that you communicate with the mother of the groom, though, so that the two of you can find styles that will complement each other on the big day.

Planning Your Timeline

Choosing the perfect gown may take a while, so it's important to give yourself plenty of time. We recommend that you begin the process as soon as you can. If you are going to put it off for some reason (perhaps you want to give yourself time to shed a few pounds, or maybe you tend to put off shopping in general), it may be wise to communicate with the mother of the groom so that she knows you are planning to wait. This way she will know she is free to go ahead with her search, in case she was planning to go the traditional route and wait to see what you purchased first. 

We Can Help You Find The Perfect Dress

Ultimately, it is entirely up to you and your daughter to find the gown that will be perfect for her special day. All that matters is that you work together to select a style that will match the day, and that you keep the mother of the groom in the loop so that she can find the perfect dress as well.

In addition to an outstanding selection of gorgeous bridal gowns, we offer a great selection of mother of the bride dresses for you to choose from.

5 Jaw-Dropping Backless Dresses

As a bride-to-be, one of the first decisions you'll have to make about your wedding dress is the overall style of gown you want. You can choose from any number of different silhouettes, necklines, hemlines, sleeve lengths, etc. One of the other important stylistic choices you will have to make is the type of back you want. This week, Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches is here to take a closer look at one particularly eye-catching style: the backless wedding dress.


Backless Wedding Dresses

Backless wedding dresses, sometimes called open-back wedding dresses, are among the most sensual types gowns brides can choose for their big day. If you have a long torso or a slender back, opting for an open-back gown may be a great way to accent your best feature. Sensual and confident, you'll be sure to turn every head at your wedding. 

If you are considering an open or low back, our bridal salon in South Florida has a great selection of backless wedding dresses for you to choose from. Here is a sneak peek at a few of our favorites.

Style Number 1352
This sparkling gown features a high halter neckline that is embroidered with crystals. Alencon lace appliques adorn the wide hemline border. The eye-catching open back is lined with beaded edges. This gown is available in three color combinations: white/silver, ivory/silver, and light gold/silver.


Style Number 2773
There are only two words needed to describe this gown: polished and sophisticated. From Miami to Los Angeles to New York City, this gown is perfect for any wedding with an upscale theme. The deep V neckline, fit and flare silhouette, and low scooping back exude elegance and confidence. Available in white, cream, and light gold.


Style Number 1354
Beautiful, spectacular, stunning... no matter what words you use, this gown is sure to turn heads. Its sparkling metallic appliques and generously ruffled organza make a statement unlike any other gown. If you've been considering a mermaid silhouette, this gown is definitely one that you won't want to miss. Available in white/silver and ivory/silver.


Style Number 3195
This gown is available in our plus size collection. The diamanté and pearl beaded edging detail is truly exquisite, and the lace appliques over a soft, smooth satin gown and train are the perfect picture of casual elegance. You're sure to feel like a princess in this one! Available in white/silver, ivory/silver, and light gold/silver.


Style Number 5363
Elegant embroidery, sparkling crystals, and a feminine fit and flare silhouette are just a few of this gown's eye-catching characteristics. These features, combined with its dramatic open back, make this dress leave an impression that is impossible to forget. Available in white, ivory, and light gold.

5 Dress Shopping Myths You Probably Believe

Dress shopping is one of the most thrilling parts of wedding planning. Many young girls dream of their future wedding dresses from a very young age, and now as engaged women, they finally get to bring those fantasies to life.

Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches is proud and honored to get to play a role in your journey as you turn your lifelong fantasy into reality. However, we hope you realize that while many of your expectations will probably come to pass, you probably have other expectations that, as you may soon learn, are not quite as grounded in reality. The truth is that there are a lot of different misconceptions about shopping for a wedding dress. This week, our bridal salon in West Palm Beach is here to help set the record straight.


Myth #1: You Should Know Exactly What Type Of Gown You Want
There is an underlying expectation that brides should know exactly what type of gown they want when they come in for their first bridal appointment. While having done some prior research is definitely helpful, there is no rule stating that brides must know exactly what they want ahead of time. Honestly, it is almost impossible to know for sure what type of dress is right for you until you have tried on a few different styles.

Myth #2: You Can Buy The Same Dress Online For A Better Price
This is one of the most heartbreaking myths we see on a regular basis. It is not uncommon for thrifty brides to try on dresses at a bridal salon, find the one they want, and then go hunting online for the same dress at a cheaper price. However, it is important to realize that reputable wedding designers often do not allow their dresses to be sold online - they can only be purchased at authorized retailers. The dress you find online will most likely be a knock-off. In exchange for a cheaper price, the gown will likely be lacking in quality. 

Myth #3: Your Wedding Dress Must Be White
If you're like most people, white is probably the color that automatically comes to mind when you imagine a wedding dress. However, the truth is that modern brides have complete authority to choose whatever color they want for their wedding gowns. Champagne and ivory are extremely popular shades currently, but if you so desire, you can push past these trends as well. It is your wedding, and ultimately you are free to choose whatever color gown you wish.

Myth #4: You'll Shed Tears When You Find "The One"
There is a stereotypical expectation that brides become extremely teary during the dress shopping process - especially when they try on the perfect dress. However, as most people know, the tendency to cry varies drastically from woman to woman. While some women may shed tears with every dress they try on, others may keep completely dry eyes throughout the entire process. Rather than waiting for the dress that brings tears to your eyes, focus on how each gown makes you feel. When you try on a dress that makes you feel absolutely stunning, chances are you've found the right gown.

Myth #5: The More, The Merrier
While bringing some of the people closest to you to assist with the process can be very helpful, less is often more when it comes to selecting your dress shopping entourage. We recommend bringing only 2-4 people with you to your bridal appointment. If you bring more than that, you may become overwhelmed by the myriad of different opinions presented. Choose a few of the people in your innermost circle and leave it at that.
