In most of the western cultures and particularly in the Christian weddings, bridesmaids are those close friends, cousins or sisters of the bride, who wear beautiful clothes and hold flowers and nosegays in their hands to attend the bride and complement her beauty. Bridesmaid is someone who walks to the marriage place with the bride. She is given a lot of importance like the flower girls. Her dress is prepared by special designers so that she looks perfect while walking with the bride. These dresses are available in a large variety. For instance, there are some long bridesmaid dresses and some short bridesmaid dresses available in the markets.
The short dresses for bridesmaids are more popular as they look different and unique with the long bridal gown that the bride normally wears. Most often these dresses are available in bright colors so that they look beautiful with the traditional white dress of the bride. The colors they are available in include red, blue, green, purple, black, and others. They are also available in shiny fabric and scintillating effects to make them more appropriate for wedding wear. The dresses are made of silk, satin and net.
Available in different styles, these dresses can be found in long sleeves, short sleeves and even sleeveless designs. The neck lines also vary, for instance low neck, shoulder-less tops and so on. In order to make them unique and stylish, dress designers often embellish them with adornments such as satin flowers, satin ribbons, silk belts and other such trendy ideas. Bridesmaid dresses come with accessories of various types; these include purses matching their dress colors or floral bouquets, tiaras and crowns, baskets to hold flowers, matching sandals and heel shoes, and much more.
These short dresses are always ideal to wear with high heel sandals, preferably platform or pencil heel. This looks trendy and chic; and platform heels make the bridesmaids feel comfortable even if they keep standing or moving around for hours during the wedding function. The short length bridesmaid dresses can be either ordered to designers or can be bought ready to wear. Alteration can be later done according to your specific body fit and need.
