Generally bridal shops and big stores carry different designer labels for bridal dresses and bridesmaid dresses. If you have a favorite designer, ask the sales clerk for the latest collection and perhaps you can haggle for a discounted designer label. Don’t worry if the dresses are the remains of the last season’s collection, what matters most is you look good in it and the cut is a classic one.

Go for Bold

Go for Sweet

If you don’t want to make a bold fashion splash, go for the demurely sweet bridesmaid dresses. A lace dress with high collar recreates the old Victorian look. Top this dress with a simple hairdo and simple accessories. The less adornment, the better you can a sweet demure look. Take your pick now months before the wedding and enjoy the admiring looks from family and friends.
