If you want pretty and happy bridesmaids, why not veer away from the traditional matching full-length satin gowns or fully-beaded bustier-and-A-line-skirt tandems? Have them wear beautiful dresses—or even better, have them wear beautiful dresses that can be worn again even after they're done with their bridesmaid duties!
MIX IT UP
Bridesmaids need not match. To let their personalities shine, why not let your girls select their dresses' colors from your theme's palette? You can also choose different floral prints or patterns that complement your wedding colors, so that your ladies-in-waiting will enjoy sashaying down the aisle. Or you can have them wear dresses in the same colors but in varying cuts. Not only will they be picture-perfect in their nontraditional ensemble, but they'll have reusable dresses, too.
CUT IT SHORT AND SWEET
After its stint at the wedding, a shorter dress is easier to reuse since it's more casual and easier to play around with—plus, shorter hemlines give your bridesmaids more freedom to move. Another advantage of shorter-hemmed dresses is that your bridesmaids' shoes can make an equally charming statement. If you're feeling extra generous, gift your girlfriends with shoes that add oomph to their look.
