Finding Traditional Bridesmaid Dresses in Non Traditional Places

Bridesmaid dresses are an important piece of the wedding planning process. They will be in a large portion of the wedding pictures and lets face it, you want your girls to look amaze so you’ve got to find the right dress that compliments many different personalities and body types…..not hard at all right? LOL! Luckily, the options for Bridesmaid Dresses are endless and no longer just found in Bridal Shops.

Now days, brides are opting for bridesmaid dresses that are not Bridesmaid Dresses. Meaning, Brides are no longer looking in the Bridesmaid section for these dresses. In fact, if you look around your favorite department store or scroll through your “go-to” online boutique, they are sure to have many dresses that would work perfectly as Bridesmaid dresses.

If you are deciding to go this route we think its important to ask yourself a few questions first, so that your searching can be more productive. Think about what is important to you and what characteristics you are hoping for in your Bridesmaid Dress. What color do you want the dresses to be? Do you want it to be floor length or knee length? Do you want it to be short sleeve or long sleeve? Is it important to you that your bridesmaids wear the dresses after the wedding? Do you want tight or loose fitting dresses?  And most importantly, price point!!!  Consider the financial situations of the lovely ladies you have asked to be apart of your big day and stay within their means.  The options truly are endless, but these are a few of our favorite dress options:
