Ask the Bride

Before you head to the store to begin shopping for your dress, shoes or accessories, ask the bride what her vision is and if she has a dress code.  Oftentimes brides will ask all of their bridesmaids to adhere to a specific color palette or dress shape.  If the bride is selecting the bridesmaid gowns, you can sit back and wait until the fittings.

Selecting a Bridesmaid Dress

Once you’ve spoken to the bride, you’re ready to shop!  After the color of the dress has been decided, you can begin to shop according to fit.  A dress that compliments your body shape will look beautiful in person as well as in photographs.  Your bridesmaid dress can always be altered to better fit your body during the alteration, which is the next step.

Bridesmaid Dress Alterations

Having your bridesmaid dress professionally altered makes all the difference.  Alterations are the key to having your dress look classic, flattering and more polished.  Schedule your bridesmaid dress alterations ahead of time for the best possible outcome.  You may want to have multiple fittings; scheduling a fitting right before the wedding is rule of thumb, as your weight may have fluctuated since your last fitting.  White Way offers tailoring and alterations at our Yalesville location!
