How to pick a bridesmaid dress your friends will wear again!

It’s a running joke among many wedding planners that you should put far more time into what your wedding dress looks like than what your bridesmaids will be wearing, because after all, who is actually going to wear it ever again? However, if you’re looking to give your bridesmaids the best bang for their buck, there are a few key style points from The Park Savoy that can help you make a stunning choice your friends will thank you for years down the line!

  1. Stick with a workable length: There’s a much better chance that your friends will re-wear their bridesmaid dresses if it’s in a stylish, shorter cut rather than a long gown, so keep this in mind when you’re making your wedding preparations. If you do have to go with a longer piece, make sure it’s a design that can be easily hemmed into a shorter version in the future.
  2.  Neutral Colors: The wider the variety of outfits your friends can wear their dress with, the bigger the chances that they will wear them down the road. A neutral hue like gray, navy, black or champagne can be the perfect backdrop for bright and bold accessories, and these outfits may just work their way into your friends’ regular rotation!
  3.  Multi-Colored and Print Dresses: On the other end of the spectrum, multi-colored bridesmaids dresses have become very fashionable, and this is an easy way for your loved ones to re-wear their ensembles in the future. With the right color combination or print, your friends can color block with ease, pair with their favorite accessories and find dazzling combinations with contrasting elements.
  4.  Separates: There’s no hard and fast rule that says that your bridesmaid ensemble has to be a dress, when you can easily throw together tops and skirts in varying colors. With the ability to mix and match with other garments your friends may have in their closets, your wedding outfits will have far more staying power and you can ensure that your friends will get more bang for their buck!
