My cousin is marrying the love of her life in a boho-chic garden ceremony under the stars this August, and as the stylist of the family, she put me in charge of finding the bridesmaid dresses! The wedding party consists of myself, my four younger sisters and some of our cousins- all of which have very different body types, heights, and sizes.
It’s hard enough finding a dress that looks great in pictures, that everyone will feel beautiful and confident in, let alone one that will complement everyone’s body type and personal style. Faced with this daunting task, I’ve made it my mission to find dresses in the same color and fabric that come in different styles, so each bridesmaid can choose the style she feels best in.
In my search to find a local boutique, I was really excited when I came across Bella Bridesmaids. They have a great selection of dresses from traditional to modern, and being able to go in store and try on options with my sister who’s the exact opposite of me- average in height with a petite frame, made it much easier to find exactly what I was looking for!
These are some images from our recent appointment at the San Francisco showroom, where the stylists were informed of our sizes, heights and what I was looking for ahead of time. Walking into the appointment, they had some amazing options for us to try and the three styles I narrowed it down to were the blush chiffon maxi I’m wearing, the nude chiffon maxi Jazmen’s wearing, and the multi-way dress we both tried. They all had their own unique features we liked, but the one Jazmen and I both fell in love with was the multi-way dress that’s universally flattering on every body type with it’s A-line silhouette and customizable wrap top. The dress comes in several colors, and I’m leaning towards a rose shade of pink that will look great in the evening light, paired with the flower crowns we’re making. (I also love that I can see myself wearing this outside of being a bridesmaid, the dress is so versatile).
