A wedding gown will receive no shortage of attention in the course of a wedding. Of course, this is just one of several outfits that might be seen at the altar during a ceremony. The happy couple will need to select attire for their wedding party members. The clothing worn by bridesmaids and groomsmen tend to garner plenty of attention, too, and they help you set the right tone for your overall event. With this in mind, make sure that you take your time when picking out what the people standing with you during the ceremony will wear. This time and attention to detail can make for a stunning image at the altar.

How Stylish Should Your Wedding Party Members Be?

The first thing to remember is that everyone in your wedding party – you and your partner included – will set the tone of the wedding when it comes to formality and style. Bridesmaids and groomsmen will be less stylish than the happy couple, but they should have an appropriate look for the event. Look at their clothing options as an extension of your decorations, as they help inform your guests as to what kind of event you are hosting.

Choosing The Right Outfits For Your Bridesmaids

The color of your chosen bridesmaid dresses should come from the wedding colors you intend to feature in your decorations. As you look for different styles of dress in that color, you can run into a concern over finding a cut or fashion that flatters everyone. Does this mean that you should ask some of the people in your party to wear something less attractive on them? If uniformity is important, remember that the decision on what to wear is up to you. This should be understood by everyone in your party, so they can hardly be surprised when they have one dress option. With that said, couples who host less formal weddings can choose to designate a color and certain style, but let bridesmaids enjoy some flexibility in the dress.

Matching Groomsmen To The Groom

Traditionally, groomsmen will closely match the appearance of the groom during the wedding. Typically, a groom will be distinguished by a different jacket or vest color, or even a different tie. While the difference should be subtle, make sure it is distinct enough to set the groom apart without difficulty!
