Summer weddings are two to a dozen this season and at this time of year everyone is thinking about what to wear for their next wedding occasion. There is so much emphasis on weddings there is no excuse to go dressed half heartedly.
Bridesmaids play a big part in any wedding and the dress situation can be a real nightmare especially if you or the couple in question are restricted by budget.
Do you get a dress made? Do you buy off the shelf? …
There is also something in the back of my mind which makes me think that it would be preferred if the bridesmaid could wear the dress again or have it tailored so that she can in the future. I am going be a bridesmaid soon this August for my brother and I am lucky enough to be having a dress made but nowadays there are some great bridesmaid dress options which you can buy off the shelf.

Styling Tip: Try and customise your bridesmaids dresses in some way – you will obviously know that you have bought them off the shelf but no-one else will ever have to know. Look at customising the sash on a dress by changing the ribbon colour or thickness, take into consideration the body shapes of your bridesmaids, colour and tone of other accessories or flowers etc.
