Bridesmaid dresses, did you go for the style you wanted them to wear or did you ask what style they would prefer? I've asked them if they have any no-nos as want them to be comfy but now it's making it much harder to find ones I like as one wants sleeves and the others don't
I would give them 2 or three options of style and get them to decide from there.
Have you thought about letting them have different dresses but have them in the same colour. I think it's important to have your bridesmaids feel comfortable.
You could put a bolero with the one who wants sleeves if it's to cover arms. I hate my arms and my wedding dress is sleeveless so I'm going to wear a bolero x
I let them choose their colour (I'm having 3 colours in my colour scheme) and let them choose their own dresses, turns out they all agreed on the same dress but I didn't mind if they wanted different ones. If you're having one colour could have different styles and they would still match x
I catered for my bridesmaids at the end of the day they will wear it all day and must be comfortable wearing them. But that was my choice i wanted them to have a good experience and not just been 'told' to wear it. Maybe ask ideas and put across yours too, and come to a compromise. Good luck x
I have just started planning and am going to ask them what they feel comfortable in as they are all different shapes and sizes. I was recently a bridesmaid and the dress was a boobtube dress as the bride wanted. Absolutely gorgeous dress but I didn't feel comfortable in it for the whole day. Wouldn't want to make me bridesmaids feel uncomfortable either. x
I told them the colour, full length and the budget. I had some I wanted them to try but my maid of honour found some in lipsy that they both liked. As long as you set the essentials!
I chose the colour but left mine to it.
Get without sleeves and buy your bridesmaid that wants sleeves a little jacket or bolero xx
I had the dress and style in my mind but it doesn't work out that way! in the end i gave them the colour and said they could choose the style xx
I told my girls what they would be wearing, at the end of the day it's your day and if you have something in mind they should accept that and Wear what you choose not what they want
I went for a multiway dress, so everyone could style it how they wanted.....everyone had their own preference so it worked well X
I had idea and I took my moh to show her the dress. She tried it on and loved it I then took other bm to try on and all was good
I got the multi way dresses to avoid this
I got what I liked, fortunately they all love them too :) I am really lucky I have the most non fussy bridesmaids, they are super amazing ️
Mine chose theirs as they were the ones who wore them throughout the day. I paid for them too. :) xx
I had 6 bridesmaid, I picked the colour purple and a chiffon finish, they chose their own styles, all 6 were different, lots of lovely comments on them all. They all looked fab cos they chose the right style for their own shape!
All my bridesmaids are different shapes, sizes and heights so to make things easier and comfortable they all have different style dresses but in the same colour and it actually looks a lot nicer as nobody feels awkward and all the dresses suit the different girls x
Mine chose style they wanted, all same designer so colours matched but diff dresses so each was comfy/happy x
I gave my bridesmaids a choose of 3 dresses. I took into consideration what they wanted and asked them their final opinion as I wanted them to be comfortable. Is they didn't like any idve looked again x
I had an idea of dresses I liked and took them with me to show them and look for alternatives but luckily they were happy with my pick and saw I'd considered them all with my choice x
My bridesmaids will be in multiway dresses. This way they can all wear the dress how they feel comfortable x
I let them pick their own dresses. I even said they could have 2 different styles if they couldn't find one they both agreed on. As long as it was a specific colour I didn't mind the rest. They chose a beautiful style dress that they were comfortable in x
Yes i will ask them about what style etc as i want them to feel comfy and beautiful too x
I forgot to ask and ordered them anyway but my bridesmaids were happy and they looked beautiful
Mine have different dresses I let them choose what they would be comfortable in but had to stick to the colour scheme. Xx
I was recently a bridesmaid for my best friends wedding and we chose the style together! She had a colour and we just shopped for styles (although first dress was the dress!) X
I told mine to pick what they wanted and I didn't mind if they had different styles or colours as long as they looked ok together...we went shopping and they all liked the same dress 2 had one colour and my daughter had different colour as different skin tones xx
Suggest they look for their own in the colour you want.
A bit of both really, I took them to a few stores and said pick some out and they each tried on different styles, i said what I liked and they said what they liked and we managed to whittle it down to one we all loved: Aas the best way
I'm letting my bridesmaids choose what they wear as long as it's the colour I want
I let mine pick the dress they wanted I just told them what colour I wanted. Luckily they worked together to find a dress they both liked xx
I paid, so I got what I wanted, however if your asking them to pay or contribute then you have to accommodate what they want/like Xx
Could you go for a mix of styles but all the same colour?
I think I got a good mix of what they wanted and what I wanted .
Looked good on all of them, got tonnes of compliments and covered 'areas' they didn't like.
I kept posting photos for them to choose between until i got a majority :)
I had my idea in mind and ultimately the decision was mine to make but I continually asked for the girls' opinions. if they were uncomfortable with it then that was important to me, if they simply just didn't like it then I just told them to suck it up luckily my girls were all on the same page!
Hi ask if there is anything that they wouldn't wear then go from there :)
I brought my bridesmaids the exact same dresses, ones that I liked, done some adaptions to them as one wanted straps and the other didn't x
I've chosen the multiway dress for my bridesmaids least that way it's the same dress and they can wear it how they want
You could always go with the same colour dresses but different styles, one with sleeves and one without
One was fussy others didn't care so the one that was making it very hard just had alterations to her dress as it got very silly trying to find a dress they all liked to which we didn't get them until month before wedding x
They don't all have to have the same style.
My bridesmaids all wearing different styles but the same colour xx
Got them to try to see what style suited all 3
I'm making mine so it's slightly easier - but I've specified the type of skirt I want and they can have whatever style they want on top!
I had this exact issue! It was a stressful nightmare trying to find dresses to suit both! One hates her arms so wanted sleeves & the other doesn't like her legs so needed to be past knees, we got there in the end though
Some people are really uncomfortable in sleeveless dresses, maybe just see if she'd be happy with a added shawl/shrug type thing to cover her shoulders 🤔
I asked what styles they didn't want to wear to ensure they weren't too uncomfortable but I will make he final decision x
You could try no sleeves but have a shawl/wrap available if they want something to cover shoulders/arms
Add an optional shrug, dress can be sleeveless then. It is was my dad did for his wedding for my cousins and I as bridesmaids
I chose the colour they chose the dresses
My girls chose there's . I was planning on them from bridal shop but my sister saw this dress In coast where she lives that was the perfect blush pink so me and my bridesmaids took a road trip and tried on them band everything else pink but they loved the dress my sister found and so I ordered them that night .
My only requests was that it was blush pink and didn't have same neckline as my dress my dress is a sweetheart neckline with lace straps and the dress they chose is a highneck With Tshirt sleeves
What about no sleeves but bolero? Then one can keep it on all day and the rest can take them off later?

It's your day that they want to be a part of so pick dresses you like and if they don't then tough
I've worked with mine. You could always look at the multiway dresses,then they can wear them how they like
When I have been a bridesmaid, I've not been given a choice, and been unhappy with the dress but didn't have a face on and enjoyed the day! I will take my girls shopping so they can suggest etc. but i think ultimately will be my choice (bridezilla)
I knew I wanted yellow and long but other then that I wanted my 3 girls to be excited to wear the dresses so I let them pick. I loved what they ended up picking and they all look absolutely stunning. X
