The Bridesmaid Dresses

Modest bridesmaid dresses are not impossible to find!

One option is having dresses made, or perhaps the bridesmaids would like to make their own dresses.

Have you considered that they needn’t be “formalwear” or “evening wear”? Some wedding styles lend themselves nicely to dresses in fabrics other than taffeta and satin.

Tips and Ideas

Please consider the modesty requirements of your bridesmaids ~ they may be different than your own. Be sweet! Do not beg a bridesmaid to wear something she is uncomfortable with (or that her husband or parents are uncomfortable with).
